Sitaram Dass and Ram DassSitaram Dass (K. Sandin, MSW) spent several years serving his beloved teacher Ram Dass on Maui, where he was shown the path of Bhakti Yoga, the yoga of service and devotion to God. As the Director of the Sacred Community Project and a member of Kripa, he works to lower the barriers of access to contemplative and devotional practices through affordable, free, and donation-based offerings, one-on-one spiritual support, and prison outreach. His new book, From and for God, is an intimate and contemplative collection of writings on the spiritual path.

“I received the rare chance to be in close proximity to a man who truly lives from the heart. Whether he was lecturing on stage, at the dinner table with friends or alone in his room, Ram Dass rested in and acted from a place of love. I believe that this is the most important thing anyone can learn- to live from the heart, to act from the heart, to sing from the heart.

“This is Ram Dass’s main teaching, and it continues the teachings of his guru, the great saint Neem Karoli Baba, who said “Love everyone, serve everyone and remember God.” I try to make these three words, love, serve and remember, as the foundation of everything I do. I can’t think of any better map to navigate life with.”
