LEARY, Timothy. Start Your Own Religion.
(Millbrook, NY): League for Spiritual Discovery (Kriya Press of the Sri Ram Ashrama), 1967. First edition. Small quarto. 27 pages. Published at the height of the psychedelic era, the volume espouses Leary’s core philosophy, — unlimited personal freedom. Encouraging the youth of the 1960s to return to the temple of God — their own bodies — and live consciously in the here-and-now, Leary’s ideas, including urging people to turn on, tune in, drop out, brought him legions of devoted followers and a host of enemies in the American government. Irreverent yet thought provoking, the ideas that revolutionized an earlier generation remain motivational principles today. Illustrated with photographic plates. A very good copy in stapled wrappers.
