Naga Babas, Oral Tradition and the Psychedelic Experience
Baba Rampuri will open The Book of the World and talk from the Oral Tradition in the context of his life among Naga Babas.
Like the others in the entourage of the Indian God Shiva, the Naga Babas, naked yogi-shamans live at the margins of the world as all shamans do. Some call them "The Hell's Angels of Indian Spirituality". Yet, even though "outsiders", they maintain a very legitimate authority and honored connection with the world. Theirs is an oral tradition, which they call the Tradition of Knowledge.
Explorations and opening up of consciousness require journeys to the edge of the world, hoping to find such characters to act as our allies, protectors, and mentors. And, of course, the physical journey is only a small part. Albert Hofmann not only greatly facilitated this process, he provided one of the few ways in these times, to cross to the other side.
Baba Rampuri entertains and enlightens us with accounts of his "bold journey which explores the true intersections of Eastern and Western thought," (Deepak Chopra) as he became the first foreigner to be initiated into India's most ancient order of yogis and shamans, the Naga Sannyasis, and a guru with a number of disciples within the order.
