“And every now and then, my mind would float away to, ‘Far out, Maharajji died.’ And I’d experience him saying to me, ‘Just attend to your business. Cut out all that melodramatic crap. Just do your thing.’ I was looking to get into a little self-pity place, you know, ‘Oh, God, Maharajji!’” – Ram Dass
