I left America for India in 1963 to find my guru. I was the first American to live in the jungle of the Himalayas as a hermit-sadhu.
I was given the holy name of Ram by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. I went off alone to the caves in the mountains to meditate. I then came to meet Swami Chaitanya Prakashananda Tirth who gave me tapas to pray for God's Grace.
After a year of fasting, prayer and intense purification I met my Sat Guru, the Mahasiddha Neem Karoli Baba – who I lived with side by side for many years. He sent me to Anandamayi Ma to receive initiation from the Divine Mother.
Then one day, because of the tantric path he knew I must travel, and the many karmic connections due to ripen, he sent me away.
So I went towards Tibet to go deeper, deeper, and then beyond with the last living yogis from high in the mountain peaks of Tibet and Nepal. During my time with the Tibetan yogis, I was the first westerner to meet and live with Lama Kalu - the guru of the 16th Karmapa. He gave me the Mahamudra transmission, mind to mind. I received the Clear Light of Primordial Awareness from His Holiness Dudjom Rinpoche and then the Vajra Yogini transmission directly from the 16th Karmapa in Sikkim.
I lived with Yogi Chen who explained all the details to me in English in his hermitage in Kalimpong. When on pilgrimage to the holy Boudhanath Stupa in Kathmandu, I met Richard Alpert who was to become Ram Dass after I brought him to Neem Karoli Baba.
I am here now by the grace of my Sat Guru Neem Karoli Baba. He led me Home to the Divine Mother in the form of Amulya Maa, my precious Beloved Wife.
Amulya Maa is always guiding me on the true path of Bodhichitta with her crystal clarity, ancient wisdom and pure Love.
This is It for Now.

~ OM MANI PADME HUM ~
The One Who is at Play Everywhere said,
There is a place in the heart where everything meets.
Go there if you want to find me.
Mind, senses, soul, eternity, all are there.
Are you there?
Enter the bowl of vastness that is the heart.
Give yourself to it with total abandon.
Quiet ecstasy is there -
and a steady, regal sense of resting in a perfect spot.
Once you know the way
the nature of attention will call you
to return, again and again,
and be saturated with knowing,
“I belong here, I am at home here.”
Answer that call.
