About this artist

Ram Dass was born Richard Alpert in 1931. He became famous for his experiments with LSD in the 1960s with people like Timothy Leary and Allen Ginsburg; he was eventually dismissed from Harvard for his work with psychedelics. In the late 1960s he traveled to India where he worked with a guru for years. On his return he wrote several well-received spiritual books and made various spiritual recordings, becoming something of a guiding light for the post-hippie generation.
