More recently, Ram Dass (the ex-Harvard professor and LSD enthusiast formerly known as Dr. Richard Alpert) went to India, met a Hindu guru and came back to write the best selling book Be Here Now. In it, he argues that, “The game is not about becoming somebody, it’s about becoming nobody.”

This is the Hindu perspective, but it's definitely not the Buddhist perspective. I think you can live a life of meaning and be happy at the same time. It just takes more mental conditioning than people want to pay.

Dr Alpert is the name of the bio-neuro-immuno-polar bear recruiter on Lost. Dharma Iniative and all that.

Well we've all heard of Ram Dass, so that plan isn't working for him I guess.
