In the 1960s, Richard Alpert and Timothy Leary were to spiritual awareness what the Beatles and the Stones were to rock 'n' roll. As Harvard faculty members, they began experimenting with LSD and in 1963 were, famously, expelled by the university. While Leary continued to tune in, turn on and drop out, Alpert--whose father was a wealthy Jewish attorney and President of the New York-New Haven Railroad--morphed into Ram Dass, a serious and much loved spiritual leader, author and lecturer. His 1971 best-seller 'Be Here Now' has been followed up recently by 'Still Here: Embracing Aging, Changing and Dying'. The chronicle balances footage from the hippie era, with contemporary material on Ram Dass, as he remakes his life since suffering a stroke five years ago.
