Dying to Know: Ram Dass & Timothy Leary

Dying to Know: Ram Dass & Timothy Leary is an intimate portrait celebrating two very complex, controversial characters in an epic friendship that shaped a generation.
In the early 1960’s, Harvard Psychology Professors Timothy Leary and Richard Alpert began probing
the edges of consciousness through their experiments with psychedelics. Dr. Leary became the
LSD guru, challenging convention, questioning authority, and spawned a global counter culture
movement, landing in prison after Nixon called him, “the most dangerous man in America.” Dr.
Alpert journeyed to India becoming Ram Dass, a spiritual teacher for an entire generation who still
continues his teaching of service through compassion.
With footage spanning 80 years the film invites us to ponder questions about life, drugs, consciousness
and the biggest mystery in the human landscape: death.

  1. Dying to Know: Ram Dass & Timothy Leary — Here's two guys that are really screwed up in the Head ! This video reveals that both Ram Dass and Timothy Leary had at least two great things in common … 1) Both used massive amounts of L.S.D. 2) Both were greatly involved in Hinduism ! Richard Nixon former President of the United States was noted to have said that Timothy Leary was the most dangerous Man in America ! Of course Timothy Leary was not very fond of the U.S. Government either ! Neither were the majority of the Young in America at that time having being subject to the hidden hand of the Super-Rich in trying to bring about Monopoly and Full Fledged Dictatorship in America through the Tavistock Institute and the Social Engineering of the Masses ! It is known that it was the Tavistock Institute that wanted to Totally Destroy America via Promoting Drugs such as L.S.D. in America ! Timothy Leary was known to have spouted off "Question Authority" as if it was not the long held tradition already of the U.S. Constitution and the U.S. Central Government ! Timothy Leary saw himself as the foremost leader of today's Psychedelic World and that their was no Psychedelic World in existence before the 1950's ! Timothy Leary noted that that the word "Psychedelic" meant "Mind Manifesting" ! Timothy Leary taught that it was he himself that was the Shaman of the Human Race ! Timothy Leary in exploring the Psychedelic Experience found that L.S.D.- 25 was much more powerful than Psychocybin and thus was his drug of choice ! Timothy Leary one time said that the Psychedelic Experience was like that contained in the writing of the Hindu Scriptures ! Timothy Leary believed not only that the use of L.S.D. lead to Hinduism but that both L.S.D. and Hinduism lead to the celebration of death ! Both Timothy Leary and Ram Dass soon found Dispassionate Detachment for those Suffering in Death ! Timothy Leary was known to have authored the book titled "The Psychedelic Experience" about the use of L.S.D. and the different stages of "Bardo" as taught in the Tibetan Buddhist religion ! This experience of "Bardo" was patterned after the "Tibetan Book Of The Dead" ! Timothy Leary also paved the way for the Young in America by proclaiming … "Turn On, Tune In and Drop Out" ! Of course this was at a time when so many were loosing faith in society and the world in general ! A number of people tried to Assassinate Timothy Leary but failed ! As to Timothy Leary's "Psychedelic Experience" so, so many asked … Why ?, Why ?, Why ? and at the time of Timothy Leary's natural death Timothy Leary came forward with his answer … "Why Not ?" For us here in America we can answer Timothy Leary with a stern "Death is Not the Answer but instead full fledged Life " ! Life, not in being Psychic … Life not from Drugs … Life not from worshiping "Brahm" the single God of Hinduism but instead Life as it really is ! ! ! Best Wishes — Joseph Stefurak

  2. A great film but candy coated, no insight of the CIA involvement. The Brotherhood of Eternal Love has a different version! Of course we were there. Tim and his family informed on me and I was arrested in Santa Cruz, did 8 months at Terminal Island. Dennis Martino, Johana Harcourt Smith , Tim's daughter married to Dennis, Tim's son set me up and I was arrested for the Brotherhood by the DEA, CIA, FBI. I was in Afghanistan and ran in to Dennis he told me Tim was in Algiers and wanted to leave. I asked the Afghanis to hide him out and they said yes. Dennis told me Tricky Ricky Bevans ratted me off to DEA agent Barns and Barnes let him go to find me. When I was leaving Afghanistan I wondered how Dennis knew Tricky Ricky snitched me off to Barns? He set Tim up to get busted in Afghanistan! according to a article in Playboy1972 Dennis got killed by the French Underground for Snitching on Tim! https://www.brotherhoodofeternallove.org/
