In 1967 he continued his study of consciousness in India, where he was given the name Ram Dass (Servant of God) by his guru, Neem Karoli Baba. Since that time, through books, tapes, and lectures, he has contributed to the interrogation of Eastern spiritual philosophy into Western thought. In 1973 he founded Hanuman Foundation, which has nurtured projects designed to increase spiritual consciousness in the West. Among these have been the Prison-Ashram Project, the Dying Project and Dying Center, and meditation programs and retreats. In 1985 he became the Chairman of the Board of the Seva Foundation. His primary yoga or vehicle for realizing liberation is through service. Paul Gorman was educated at Yale and Oxford. He has been a program producer and talk show host with WBAI-FM.
