On October 2, 2002 The Philadelphia Inquirer reported that "the Omega Institute, a New Age retreat center tucked in the hills above the Hudson River, was... opening a library in [Ram Dass'] name. Speakers praised the pioneering apostle of Hindu spirituality as 'a pure soul,' 'an intrepid traveler of the universe' who displays 'an authenticity to his being.'' Singers led 300 acolytes and spiritual seekers in rousing devotional chants in his honor."
