In the Indian epic the Ramayana, Ram (God) says to Hanuman, “Who are you?” Hanuman replies, “When I think I am my body, I serve you. When I identify with my soul, I am a part of you. When I awaken to my True Nature, you and I are one.” This captures the essence of what the Sacred can awaken in us: a life-long calling to be in service and devotion to Love. It is through this service and through this devotion that we begin to realize we are not separate. Love is the very nature of our Being. It is who we are.
From and for God is an intimate and contemplative collection of writings on the spiritual path. Jack Kornfield writes, “There is sweet wisdom here and deep devotion, and Ram Dass’s love perfume that infuses Sitaram’s words and heart, offered here to you.”learn more
Exploring the Hanuman Chalisa was recorded from over nine different livestreams throughout 2020 during the Covid-19 Pandemic. In these lectures, Sitaram Dass explores each line of the Hanuman Chalisa, using sacred scripture, humor, modern psychology, and stories from his time serving his beloved teacher, Ram Dass. In this way, the Chalisa’s timeless relevance can shine through in our modern, daily lives.learn more

Spiritual SupportAll donations go towards my service work with the Sacred Community Project
I offer donation-based, heart-to-heart video-chat support for those seeking spiritual support. This is offered freely as Seva to ensure everyone has access to the Eternal Teachings.
Something beautiful happens when people on the path come together: we help each other to open our hearts. This deepens the space between us to allow for that Ineffable, Transformative Love.
I also recognize that many of us live in environments where we don’t have much support from a greater spiritual community. This can leave us feeling isolated when:
A transpersonal experience has shattered the world as we know it…
We want to calibrate our lives towards service, reverence, and contemplation…
After years of relishing in the juice of connection, we enter a dry spell and feel stuck in our spiritual practice…REACH OUT
We want to use our spiritual values, insights, and worldview to navigate grief, loss, life transitions, closing chapters, and new beginnings…
