Ram Dass – Here and Now – Ep. 217 – Celebrate Spirit Through Service

In this moving and humorous talk about using the stuff of life to get free, Ram Dass shares how we can celebrate spirit through service by merging our divinity with our humanity.

“So you end up understanding that you serve in order to work on yourself, and you work on yourself in order to be a better instrument of service. And you can feel the circle work, you can just feel that circle work.” – Ram Dass

In this episode, Ram Dass talks about:

  • Moving home to care for his elderly father and how that became a method for him
  • Getting called away from a meditation retreat to help out his cancer-stricken stepmother
  • Larry Brilliant and the founding of the Seva Foundation
    How the Seva Foundation put service into action on a very large scale
  • The difference between the Sanskrit words Dharma and Seva
    The paradox of suffering
