    Please read reviews!
    I’m so glad I read them because I was ready to unsubscribe, thinking the program consisted only of people talking ABOUT Ram Dass! Please take advice offered by another listener to restructure and begin with Ram Dass followed by personal discussions. I’m grateful to everyone who works to make this available and hope you’re amenable to readjusting the program sequencing. Thank you!
  • Iwantpreettoadoptme
    Absolutely Amazing Material (World Treasure)
    I had no idea how profound Ram Dass’ talks are. I only wish I started listening as early as possible. Endless “thank you’s” for making these available and carrying on this beautiful, beautiful work. Every talk just blows me away! Wow. So, so grateful. And, I completely agree with many of the others who have said that the intros are too long. Much, much too long. Moving that content to after the talk completes would be much better for the overall podcast - the host can help listeners digest what they have heard by recapping, summarizing, etc. Please improve this podcast by altering the introductions as many, many listeners have suggested.
  • JessicaLF369
    I love these podcasts and want to say thank you to Raghu and to everyone responsible for bringing these to us. And of course, to Ram Dass and Maharajji. And I also want to say that it’s disheartening a bit to me to see some of the negative reviews regarding Raghu’s intros and “how much time they take up” and “just let us hear Ram Dass already!” Those types of comments are very ironic - just be here now and enjoy Raghu and what he has to say as well. 🙏❤️ Thank you!

    Comfort for the Soul
    I love the talk segments, many I have heard before but could listen over and over indefinitely. I adore Rhagu’s introductions, insight, interpretations, and his own stories. Rhagu’s voice has a sweetness that gives me a warm feeling and puts a smile on my face, like hearing from a special friend.
  • Music Composer
    Deep pool of Ram Dass
    A fantastic archive of Ram Dass recordings with a very cool host who gives the listener an overview of what they are about to hear. This podcast is a true gem.

    This is life giving. So thankful for these uploads. They truly give me life ♥️
  • Kathy108
    A Great Idea!
    I woke up and felt moved to send a message. I produced morning Radio for 8 years. I think it would help to listen to the feedback you are getting from your listeners. It’s called Ram Dass Here & Now, so do a 1 minute intro and play Ram Dass Lecture. Lead with that. Once done... give your thoughts and commentary after. It would actually give us all the ability to connect in a more pure way to the lecture, draw our own conclusions and then listen to your feedback after. It’s a Win/win. You will be honoring Ram Dass by not telling his stories before he tells them, and you allow Ram Dass to be the star of his show.. Ram Dass Here and Now. I think you will really shine if you present your show in a way that honors the feedback, highlights Ram Dass and yourself in this order. You still have a huge Roll in talking about your wisdom about the lecture.. it’ll just be after we’ve heard it. Namaste’

    I like Raghu’s intros
    Ram Dass’ teachings were difficult for me at first, Raghu’s intros were helpful guidance. I appreciate hearing the perspective of a man who was there in India way back when, and is still with him today. If it’s not your thing, just skip it. It’s weird how so many people seemed to have missed an essential Ram Dass teaching: "If somebody is a problem for you, it’s not that they should change, it’s that you need to change. If they’re a problem for themselves that’s their karma, if they’re causing you trouble that’s your problem with yourself."
  • Paulinar88
    Intros way too long - but good content
    I love listening to Ram Dass and his talks. It has become my Saturday ritual. I always fast forward through the intro and sometimes it is over 12-15 minutes so it can take a bit to find the actual start of the lecture, but I love the content!
  • Chillllama
    Introductions ruin it
    The host is annoying. He makes Ram Dass feel more like a cult leader than what he is. Makes me sad for Alpert's legacy. Movies... “Ram Dass app”. Come on people... The editing of Ram Dass speaking is good. That’s the only positive. Shorten the intro (1-2 mins max), lets interjection, and the show is 5/5
  • Annoyed..really
    Life changing. Raghu, please, maybe get your own show? The intros are wayyyy too loooong. Please. 15 minute intros...ugh.
  • Bootyking
    Best podcast
    These talks from Ram Dass and the interviews with him today are amazing. Im not into the intro’s to be honest they can be very long but this is still the BEST podcast i have found. Thank you🙏🏼
  • zydegal
    Most Grateful
    Having first connected to Ram Dass in 1971 at a conference on Death and Dying with Kubler-Ross,the path of my life was instantly altered . I am now retired from an uplifting career with people in crisis as an RN, a minister, a healer, a teacher, a guide, a friend, a compassionate seeker of the truth, a student, and toward becoming Loving Awareness as an elder in my family, my community and the physical world. I humbly remain grateful for the connection and the awakening within as a spiritual traveler on the path of existence. And I love the joy , humor and consciousness Ram Dass has brought to my spiritual path. Thank you Ram Dass , thank you Neem Karoli Baba.
  • EricJames.492
    So grateful for this amazing podcast. To say that it changed my life, would not be an overstatement. His beautiful, insightful, awakening talks, literally help me to be a better person, and live a more full life. I wish that everyone could hear this message, and be reminded of their true nature.
  • Creee52
    So good!
    This is such an awesome podcast. Hours and hours of wisdom from the man himself! And the intros are actually super interesting too. Give them a try. BE HERE NOW! Thank you so much to everyone involved in making this podcast. It has helped me in so many ways.
  • BrydonBlack
    So thankful for the content. Incredible hearing Ram Dass back in the day and hear him post-stroke. Such a great resource for raising consciousness and making people feel it’s alright. ♥️🙏🏼

  • ksotoolson
    Great content!
    Love this podcast, very enriching stuff. My only critique is that the intros are too long and often times I feel like too much is given away. I understand the need for a primer and maybe some people like getting a synopsis before hearing Ram Dass delve into the topic at hand. However, I find myself fast forwarding until the talk starts more often than not.
  • SarBearHoward
    Grateful for this information
    Thank you so much for making this possible♥️Lovelovelove
  • kswnfrd
    Just Get to the Talk
    Ram Dass’ talks are no doubt amazing, but what’s disappointing with these releases is the first 10 to 12 minutes of each episode is some other guy droning on about nothing. Would much prefer to hear Ram Dass. Thankfully there’s the 30 second advance button. These are also free on YouTube for anyone interested, without the long pointless intro.

    Great Podcast
    Love Ram Dos, so grateful for this blessing
  • Jared Lindsay
    Wonderful and helpful podcast!
    Thank you for producing these talks. Some have expressed dislike for the intros but I find them very relatable and helpful too. Love this podcast!!
  • Chris59*****
    Ram Dass is powerful
    I love the message. While I appreciate the efforts of the person doing the intro, I think it’s unnecessary and actually detracts from the message. This would be a purer message if we had a much, much shorter intro. Of course, you could just skip the intro by fast forwarding them minutes, but I wanted to get the point across just in case someone is listening.
  • elyssa solinger
    Please take the commentary from Rhagu off the podcast
    I love this podcast and I listen to it religiously. However, every time I hear Rhagu’s voice I feel really disconnected to the message and have to fast forward. Please consider responding to listeners’ request and cut out the intro or cut it to less than or equal to 5 minutes. Or ask Jospeh Goldstein to intro. It would be great to have some original thought put into the intro, rather than someone simply summarizing Ram Dass’s lecture, before the lecture.
  • rtt105
    Pls Shorten the intros
    Absolutely love the lectures. Can we get to them sooner? Pls consider minimizing the intros to a few minutes. ❤️

    Wisdom and Insight
    Love to hear Ram Dass share his truth and lessons with passion, love and humor. This man is amazing.

    My favorite podcast
    Skip the first 14 minutes and enjoy. Timeless teachings. Thank you Ram Dass and those who spread this message of remembering. Be. Here. Now ❤️
  • JayJ324
    Food for the soul
    I listen everyday. Very thankful for the commentary from Raghu. It puts the talk into perspective, makes you feel like you were there. Grateful for Baba Ram Dass... his teachings are thought provoking, to see the least. Love the stories of Maharaj-ji. What it must’ve been like to be in his presence. Blessings to all. Namaste
  • Darce Ly
    Ram Das is one of the most inspirational speakers I’ve heard. He articulates impossibly difficult concepts into understandable concepts I can visualize in my mind. Great podcast, he also has a new “HeartMind” app you should check out.
  • He who shall remain nameless
    Less Ragu Sauce
    The Ram Das lectures are extremely good. It's funny, distracting and embarassing though the way that the guy doing the intros is inserting himself into the material. I guess it's a reminder that the ego is a tough thing to shake.
  • MooshGuy
    What a gift to have access to these talks and teachings! Thank you!
  • tbuck321
    New versus old
    The old talks from ram dass are incredible. However, newer podcasts that include ragu Markus (who talks a lot more than ram dass, who after a stroke has a slower rate of speech) are not nearly as good as the old. Please just go back to old talks of ram dass. Or let ram dass talk more in newer podcasts. I listen for him, it is the title of the podcast after all.

    The BEST Podcast for Listening to Ram Dass
    I don’t know how to explain the impact this podcast has had on my life. It has guided me through very weird times, helped me get out of my head. Thank you for this!!
  • Youarethequarry
    Life changing information, from a special man who I was destined to listen to on my cosmic journey. All one. If you find this, you were meant to find this.
  • KKfree2sing
    Thank you
    I wanted to say a guge thank you for these invaluable teachings. Deepends with each podcast.
  • HellCamino
    One of the most beautiful souls of our time. Do yourself a favor and listen to every episode. It will change your life for the better. Ram Dass's books, talks and journey have opened me to a world of love, and I can't imagine my life without them/him. AND God bless Rhagu and others behind the scenes for all of the work they do to organize, curate and make this happen!
  • GGsatnam108
    Essential For the Path but...
    RD is an essential teacher for anyone on the path. Without him spirituality in the West would not be what it is today. He is a national treasure. The only reason that I didn't give it 5 stars is because I don't thinkt he intros should be so long. We don't need a 15-20 minute set up, it feels like hubris to me.
  • EloraPrichard
    Everything 💜
    Ram Dass is a open spiritual teacher. I only wish everyone could hear what he shares, because to me it is truth and he delivers it so beautifully. Through his book Be Here Now, this podcast and others on the Be Here Now Network I am spiritually supported. Thank you all, I am so blessed to live in this time with your wisdom.
  • Al. Alexander
    Baba Ram Dass is honest, insightful, and helpful
  • Claudia Miles
    Ram Dass 5***** Intro spkr TOO LONG!!
    Ram Dass is one of the greatest most inspiring speakers I have ever heard, live or recorded. However, while I appreciate beyond measure the time and effort put into digitizing his talks, it is beyond frustrating to have an intro speaker who talks for 15 to 20 minutes before every talk. I have no problem with a request for a donation. They are well deserved. But I beseech the podcast producers, please cut your intro to 5 minutes. I am listening to hear Ram Dass and feel a certain kind of connection and inspiration when he talks. No one could compare. I can't listen to these talks streaming as it's frustrating and painful to have to wait up to 20 minutes before Ram Dass actually begins. Please please change this part of the format and limit openings to $5. Thank you
  • Julie R70
    How, one may ask?
    Of course this is a 5 star podcast. It's RAM DASS. But i don't understand why we have to listen to 10-20 minutes of that Raghu Markus before each one. No one cares about him, do they? how is he the voice for the Ram Dass legacy? It's not good. Epic fail for my old hippie heart. Thank god i can fast forward.
