Scope and content

Item part is an audio recording of a portion of a lecture or sermon by American contemporary spiritual teacher and author of the 1971 book "Be Here Now," Ram Dass (born Richard Alpert). Topics touched on in the sermon and responses to questions from the audience include defining different types of love; death, and what can be offered to those who are dying; managing desires; form and formlessness; symbolic realities; enlightenment; what music is; and the incarceration of his associate Timothy Leary. The sermon fades out at 44:55, and the remaining minute seems to be from a Brain Damage live concert recording, which ends abruptly at end of tape.
