Publisher's Summary

As featured in the Ram Dass documentary film Becoming Nobody, five essential live teaching sessions on audio, presented here in their entirety

"The game is not about becoming somebody, it’s about becoming nobody." (Ram Dass) 

If you’re a spiritual explorer of any age or tradition, chances are you’ve heard of Ram Dass. This singular luminary began his “somebody training” as Richard Alpert - the 1960’s Harvard-psychologist-turned-hippie who tripped with Timothy Leary, befriended beat poets and Tibetan lamas, found his lifelong guru in India, and wrote the perennial classic Be Here Now

That’s the “somebody” part of his story. But for those who’ve experienced Ram Dass live as he shares his insights and personal journey on the way to becoming nobody - he has been for many the spark that ignited them to the liberating truth of who we really are. 

This audio collection brings us five essential sessions, featured in the Ram Dass documentary film Becoming Nobody, presented here in their entirety. Each beautifully illuminates a core dimension of Ram Dass’s wisdom. Through teaching stories, true accounts, eye-opening revelations, and his one-of-a-kind sense of humor, this legendary teacher helps show us the way out of the prison of our self-identity - and into the joy of being at once “nobody” and the universal divine at play in the world.

Ram Dass' Greatest Hits

If you've been following Ram Dass for years, this will serve as a beautiful "Greatest Hits" compilation. Maybe you have heard most of these talks, but the selection is very well made and thoroughly enjoyable, full of wisdom and struggle, which resonates very easily with anyone who listens.

If, on the other hand, you're discovering Ram Dass and want to know more about his work, then this is definitely the best way to dive into his teachings. Not a dull moment.

Ram Dass delivers like no other. What a beautiful, open and honest teacher. Highly recommended.

Becoming nobody too

So thankful for these teachings. so thankful for the gentle voice of Ram Dass in narrating his story. only 1 suggestion- change the format so "Audible" credits dont jar you out of deep meditation... or just plan on using irritation as another teaching moment. 🕉

Awakening is Realizing you are Imprisoned

A very entertaining, humorous listen, but with serious depth worth thinking over.

From the soul's point of view, in the middle level of the soul, the curriculum of the soul has 2 levels. So the soul uses experiences of incarnation to be in the world but not of the world. Soul doesn't have aversions, but soul sees attractions or aversions in the ego. So being in the soul allows you to realize your incarnation is about extracting yourself from attractions and aversions. The point is not to push away from them, but to allow them.

Listening to Ram Dass in Dec 2019

Thank You Ram Dass, you were literally telling me how to Become Nobody as I read the news you had left yours behind. Deepest gratitude for all the light you have shone into our hearts. May your compassionate soul shine even brighter and your voice live on. Big respect and much love Jane x

Beautiful eloquence and clarity

I love the beautiful eloquence and clarity that Ram Dass offers in his teachings through amusing anecdotes and poignant personal experiences.
His stories take you on a journey through highs and lows. Some tears of gladness some tears of sadness, with cosmic truths that resonate deeply.

Too short

Full of excellent content but rather short for what I expected of an audio book.
