Dharma Center, which has been open since 1998, held a Thursday night meditation class on February 9, 2012. It was Rama’s Birthday, and  happened to be the night that I teach. We recently added a TV to the center, so that we can have movies and video presentations. I had the Tantric Buddhism video ready to play. People began to drift in, until the room was almost full. Many people were first timers. After the first meditation and dharma talk I played Tantric Buddhism, suggesting that we all continue to meditate as we watched the video. As always, Rama’s humor brightened the room, and I noticed that two women new to Dharma Center were almost hysterical. As the evening ended, Dharma Center regulars stayed for awhile, and the two laughing women shared their story. Their first question, “Who is this guy, and where is he?” They were shocked when I said he had passed, and wanted to know more. Then they told their story. These two women who were from La Jolla,  were walking towards their car to come to tonight’s meditation.   A tall man who looked very very much like Rama got out of his car, and was standing by it.  As the two women passed the tall, curly haired man raised his hands in the air, and said to them “I love technology!” A short conversation ensued, and they said their good-byes. The women drove to Dharma Center, and because it was Rama’s Birthday, there were pictures around the center, some from the 80s, some the 90s. These two women, both named Pam, had never heard of Rama before that night. After watching the video they said the guy by the car was just like Rama, and the topics on the video surrounding technology and sex, along with the humor were the same.   Magic Happens when you hang out with Rama. Perhaps, in ‘reality’ a body is over-rated!   The giddy energy that happened when we sat in Rama’s presence was palpable that evening.  All of the newbees who had started to leave returned to hear our conversation with these women.  We all had ‘the glow’  and no one wanted to leave.   Thanks Rama–Dharma Center sends love and gratitude and laughter your ‘way’!
