Using dualism to step into non-dualism, through the Heart, is the essence of the Bhakti path. Ram Dass explains his personal journey in attempting to be an instrument of the unconditional Love he experienced in the presence of his Guru, and his struggle to convey the concept of Devotion to his Western audience. Being in the presence of Neem Karoli Baba penetrated his paranoid defenses and released in him an innocence he didn’t know existed. This intrinsic potential became the gift he feels we can all offer one another. (Woodacre, CA – 9/14/1996)
