The Sacred Wanderer
This spiritual memoir is by one of the first American devotees of the guru Neem Karoli Baba made famous by Ram Dass in the classic Be Here Now. Ravi Dass starts his quest right after college in 1964 at the urging of Allen Ginsberg to go to India for spiritual awakening. It will take you on an extraordinary journey from living with the great saints of India to working for the largest companies in the world like IBM, HP, Grey Advertising and Young & Rubicam managing multimillion-dollar budgets. Ravi Dass encountered Baba Ram Dass when he was a monk at Ganeshpuri, the ashram of the controversial guru of Eat, Pray, Love fame in 1970. After meeting Ram Dass he asked to be taken to his guru Maharaji in the Himalayas. From that moment on, this book interweaves the odyssey of a long time seeker with the mysterious hand of Maharaji that guided him for the next forty years from householder to Maui. Neem Karoli Baba considered Ravi Dass the actual incarnation of the 15th century Indian Saint Raidas.
