Raghu tells a story about his father visiting he and his brother in India and Maharaji telling him to take LSD, which miraculously changed his life. As Ram Dass says, “I wasn’t true to my deepest self until my first experience with psychedelics.” Ram Dass talks about his neuroses in a lecture he gave in 1987, after he returned from India the first time. He remarks about how they didn’t disappear, but became less prominent in his day-to-day life. He refers to them as “little shmoos” rather than big time issues.
