Updated : December 24, 2019 08:15 AM IST

Dass’ foundation, Love Serve Remember, announced late Sunday that the author and spiritual leader died peacefully at his home earlier in the day. No cause of death was given.
Over the years, Ram Dass — born Richard Alpert — associated with the likes of Timothy Leary and Allen Ginsberg. He wrote about his experiences with drugs, set up projects to help prisoners and those facing terminal illness and sought to enlighten others about the universal struggle with ageing.
He was best known for the 1971 book "Be Here Now," written after his trip to India. The spiritual primer found its way into thousands of backpacks around the world.
