Experiments in Truth preserves his teachings for his followers and for a new generation seeking the path to inner consciousness. Each of the 8 lectures in Experiments in Truth is a gem of humor, insight, and intelligence, which will bring inspiration to people of all faiths and walks of life.

Quality of Audio is bad and garbled...

It is very difficult to understand. So, while the content may be excellent, it's to hard to understand. I suggest that Sounds True enhance the audio quality of the original taps and republish. I'm certain Ram Dass has a lot of wonderful insights to share here.

Great uplifting speeches

Ram Das is very good at teaching while entertaining. He uses many stories to help you to relate to the princibles he is teaching. Very interesting. A good choice.

Great!

Ram Dass gives us his life experiences here in a way that profoundly enlightens while keeping his unbelievable gift of humor. A perfect combination. What a gift to listen to his words. You wont be disapointed

Great Historical Record of Ram Dass

I have listened to Ram Dass for many years on borrowed cassette tapes shared between afficianado's. I was very surprised and pleased to find many of the lectures all in one place. Although the quality is poor on many of them (as they are on the tapes also), the stories and messages are timeless. The first lecture I believe is the Heart of Compassion. The second lecture was recorded in 1970 when he first arrived back from India and details many of his experiences at Harvard and his relationship with Timothy Leary and his first experiences with the Indian Spiritual Leader. I haven't listened to the rest of the lectures yet so cannot comment as what else is contained within the book.

I am hoping his lecture to the American Psychological Association (APA) called seasons of change is also in this one...

As always, Ram Dass is moving, humorous and thought (or should I say spiritually) provoking. A must have for any Ram Dass listener.

Master Storyteller!

I love the way he threads humor into our pain and he weaves his magical wisdom into life stories to come to brilliant insights about finally coming back to ourselves.
Such a master storyteller........

Top skills for profound PTSD, grief, and soul

I simply would not be surviving, nor moving spiritually forward. Daily, insistent listening this prevails.

brilliant but poor quality recording

Ram Dass is sublime but I wish the recordings were clearer - some are unlistenable to. Still, they are about 30 years old.

Excellent as always

Every time his books end, I want more . I can listen to him talk endlessly. You learn something new every time you hear his teachings.
