Using a mix of interviews and archival recordings of his presentations, the American spiritual teacher Ram Dass, born Richard Alpert, tells the story of his life, while summarizing his primary teachings.
We may be quick to blame secret organizations, corporations and corrupt politicians for the state of the environment. The harsh truth is that the world is in its current state because humanity is evolving and taking the world with it.
After Richard Alpert was fired from Harvard in 1963 for conducting psychedelic drug research, he journeyed to India, found a guru and was renamed Ram Dass ("Servant of God"). Soon, Ram Dass became a spiritual inspiration to people across the globe. Interspersing archival footage with intimate glimpses of Ram Dass today, RAM DASS FIERCE GRACE is a poignant meditation on hippiedom and spirituality.
As I watched it, I realized that it continued to get better and better as the runtime went on. Whereas most docs tend to wear down over time, this one did the exact opposite, and it ultimately has become one of the best documentary I've seen lately.
It doesn't have an agenda or message, and it doesn't rely on any manipulative music or narration to get a point across. It's just there for what it is, and it is amazing.
Ram Dass was and is still such an inspiring figure. The theme of death and seeing him so feeble makes me feel for the world when he finally passes on. If you have any interest in him, you should without a doubt watch this film. Even if you don't have any interest, you should give it a go. You might find him to be one of your new favorite philosophers and teachers!
