Paths to God: Living the Bhagavad Gita by Ram Dass

For centuries, readers have turned to the Bhagavad Gita for inspiration and guidance as they chart their own spiritual paths. As profound and powerful as this classic text has been for generations of seekers, integrating its lessons into the ordinary patterns of our lives can ultimately seem beyond our reach. Now, in a fascinating series of reflections, anecdotes, stories, and exercises, Ram Dass gives us a unique and accessible road map for experiencing divinity in everyday life. In the engaging, conversational style that has made his teachings so popular for decades, Ram Dass traces our journey of consciousness as it is reflected in one of Hinduisms most sacred texts. The Gita teaches a system of yogas, or paths for coming to union with God.


In Paths to God, Ram Dass brings the heart of that system to light for a Western audience and translates the Gitas principles into the manual for living the yoga of contemporary life.


While being a guide to the wisdom of the Bhagavad Gita, Paths to God is also a template for expanding our definition of ourselves and allowing us to appreciate a new level of meaning in our lives.

Paths to God: Living the Bhagavad Gita

I first read the Bhagavad Gita as part of background research for my senior college thesis on T. Part of the problem is that, unlike the New Testament or the Koran, there is no rule in the Gita that advises followers to spread its teachings. Thankfully, with the publication of Paths to God , we now have just that. We learn in the introduction that Paths to God began as a set of lectures given by Ram Dass during a month-long summer program at the Naropa Institute in Naropa, now a fully accredited university, was just getting started in those days. From the photos, we get a glimpse of Naropa as Woodstock-like setting replete with peasant-clad hippies. Ram Dass himself wore the long beard of a guru and had the beginnings of a Buddha belly.

In Paths to God , Ram Dass brings the heart of that system to light for a Western audience and translates the Gita's principles into the manual for living the yoga of contemporary life.

See a Problem?

A very influential book until practicality brought Communism down to earth. Now, very dated and hardly worth the effort. Marx's construct falls when history shows the imposition of communism by a few in backward countries, not the vibrant capitalistic societies he had envisioned. Dass, long exiled from the faculty of Harvard for "psychedelic research," is well known as the author of Be Here Now , a book that gave a phrase to the language. His latest is an updated summary of a Ram Dass. For centuries, readers have turned to the Bhagavad Gita for inspiration and guidance as they chart their own spiritual paths.
