Bob Holman's India Journals (Book)
Title: Bob Holman's India Journals
Author: Bob Holman
Editor: Edwin Torres
Abstract: From Bob Holman's India Journals: "I pull my camera out and stand next to Ram while he shoots with the pro camera. By gumbo, it is beautifully lit! and once Jitendra starts to rock, rolling it out like Ginsberg himself, a satori moment re: the aforementioned Trilochen, which means “Third Eye” in Hindi. Jitendra recites, in Hindi, a Trilochen poem about Ginsberg, footnotes spoken in English. It starts to sink in — is this local poet, one of the hundreds Allen would meet in India, the missing link, marking the beginning of his transformation from taking drugs to following a spiritual path?" Available on Google Books / Amazon / Apple iBooks Looking for a journey to the High Ear of Poetry? What you need is a quick trip to India — through the jottings of Bob Holman! Discover the Secret of Consciousness! The Truth of Matter! The Holy Vernacular Guru! How the 60s were born, how Buddhism came to the US, and how a band of vagabond poets changed the world! "Check out these documents emanating from a generous heart — wonderful sonorous poems — that as Allen Ginsberg would agree, ease the pain of living." — Anne Waldman

Ginsberg's Karma film (Film/TV/Video Broadcast or Recording)
Title: Ginsberg's Karma film
Writer: Bob Holman
Director: Ram Devineni
Producer: Ram Devineni
Producer: Bob Holman
Abstract: Ginsberg’s Karma is an insightful and entertaining look at a transformative phase in the poet Allen Ginsberg’s life -- his first trip to India in 1962 would transform him into America’s first hippie. While in India, he experimented with mind-altering drugs, spiritualism, and became a political activist. The documentary follows poet Bob Holman as he travels to India to piece together Ginsberg’s life there, and interviews many of the writers who knew him during his trip. Ginsberg’s adventures and what he experienced in India are the bridge between the Beat generation of the 1950s to the hippie counterculture of the 1960s in America.
