Closing Night - The Power of Grace: A Tribute to Ram Dass
Grace is what wakes us up when we're asleep,
Grace is what removes obstacles that we don't even know are there,
Grace is what arranges our lives when we are forced to look within.
- Krishna Das recites a prayer on grace
Krishna Das says, "If we know anything about a path at all, it's only because of the Great Ones that have gone before us. Out of their love and kindness, they have left some footprints to follow." On the closing night of BuddhaFest, we pay tribute to one of the great ones from our own era, Ram Dass.
He has been a seminal figure in the modern consciousness movement, sparking a spiritual journey for many with his generation-defining book, Be Here Now. He has been a spiritual brother to Krishna Das since introducing him to their guru, Maharishi Mahash Yogi.
Krishna Das opens the evening with a talk and meditation. We then screen RAM DASS: FIERCE GRACE. After the film, Ram Dass joins us for a rare appearance live via Skype. Director Mickey Lemle takes questions from the audience. Krishna Das then closes out the festival with a special musical performance in tribute to his beloved friend, Ram Dass.
