Ram Dass’s zodiac sign is Aries. According to astrologers, the presence of Aries always marks the beginning of something energetic and turbulent. They are continuously looking for dynamic, speed and competition, always being the first in everything - from work to social gatherings. Thanks to its ruling planet Mars and the fact it belongs to the element of Fire (just like Leo and Sagittarius), Aries is one of the most active zodiac signs. It is in their nature to take action, sometimes before they think about it well.
Ram Dass was born in the Year of the Goat. Those born under the Chinese Zodiac sign of the Goat enjoy being alone in their thoughts. They’re creative, thinkers, wanderers, unorganized, high-strung and insecure, and can be anxiety-ridden. They need lots of love, support and reassurance. Appearance is important too. Compatible with Pig or Rabbit.
Author, yogi, and spiritual teacher whose famous book, Be Here Now, was published in 1971. Also a philanthropist, he established the Hanuman and Seva Foundations.
He studied at Tufts University, Wesleyan University, and Stanford University.
He traveled to India in the late 1960s and met Neem Karoli Baba, the man who would become his guru. Baba was the one who suggested that he change his name from Richard Alpert to Ram Dass, which means "servant of God."
He was the son of a prominent Jewish lawyer. Dass identified as a bisexual and learned in the late 1970s that he had fathered a child nearly three decades earlier with fellow Stanford University student Karen Saum.
He was a colleague and friend of Timothy Leary while both were employed by Harvard University. Both Leary and Dass were fired from Harvard in 1963 for their unconventional teaching practices.
