Great Book, faulty ebook
Be Here Now is a fantastic book. Unfortunately this Harper Collins version repeatedly crashes iBooks on my ipad. Especially when you try to view the Core Book and Transcription of Core Book sections. Please update/fix!
Be Very Careful!
Be very careful when reading this book. True, it can be the gateway to the highest truth BUT it can, at the same time, be a trap that could entrap your mind for a lifetime! I read this book back in 1977 when I was nineteen. It seemed to be advocating taking LSD so I took some. Indeed, I had what Ram Dass calls a "Maha" acid trip. My life as I knew it died. Though it was the most incredible experience that I ever had, I took acid just that one time. Why? Because I "came down." Then I remembered Ram Dass's guru, Maharajji. Nothing happened to him when Ram Dass gave him a mega-dose of acid. He was "there" and never came "down." So I set off to find a guru the day after I turned 20. To make a long story short, it took me 30 years to find my teacher, Ramana Maharshi and his teachings on Self-inquiry. My spiritual journey came to an end with the question,"Who am I?" Afterwards, I picked up a copy of Be Here Now and discovered, in the very back of the book, in very light (almost unreadable) type, the strong suggestion that I read the teachings of Ramana Maharshi! :P
This is one of the most important books on spirituality of all time, I'm glad to see a nice ebook version.
