Description

  • Three Rivers Press (CA)
  • It's easy to dismiss Be Here Now as the relic of a whacked-out '60s acid tripper. Paging through the center section of
    the book, with its inch-high print and psychedelic drawings, you come across lines like:

    Magic Theatre
    For madmen only
    price of admission
    your
    mind

    Then you turn to the first page of the book, and you are suddenly sucked into the story of a Harvard psychiatrist who
    has reached the pinnacle of success, discovers the mind-expanding powers of acid, and ends up trooping through India
    with a 23-year-old holy man from Laguna Beach, California. In the story, you see all the trappings of your own life and
    begin to wonder if India might hold the answers after all. Before booking your ticket, turn to the last section of the
    Be Here Now, "Cookbook for a Sacred Life." Ram Dass saves you the trouble by proffering a sober introduction to the
    basics of Hindu religion. Although he still can't resist CAPITAL LETTERS, he has done his homework, presenting a whole
    range of concepts and practices having to do with yoga postures, meditation, renunciation, dying, and sexual energy.
    So, for the most part, Be Here Now stands the test of time, and if you can entertain the center section in a retro kind
    of a spirit, it might be just what you're looking for: "The opposite of craving is saying, baby, this is the way it is,
    yeah, OK, here and now, this is it. I ACCEPT THE HERE & NOW FULLY." --Brian Bruya
