Cannabis or Indian hemp does not help Kundalini.
In fact, Cannabis or drugs can’t awaken kundalini, but they can do us a lot of harm.
Most of us know the common, so-called domestic hemp – the plant once cultivated in Europe for its fibers, but also for the seeds –
. It has special properties and we can talk about it as
the astounding divine gift of abundance and health
A completely different approach
it is necessary when evaluating the properties of another plant, called
Cannabis indicum (the so-called marihuana)
, related to the common hemp. Indian hemp it grows spontaneously and everywhere in India, as nettle grows in Romania.
We are very firm against the use of Indian hemp for psychedelic effects in yoga. We underline that all authentic masters have warned practitioners about banning the use of the variety indicum for effects on the human psyche in yoga.
More and more people are asking me if it’s okay to use light drugs, such as Cannabis indicum or marihuana for deep meditations and kundalini awakening.
Why isn’t that good?
– it is not necessary – deep meditative states can be obtained perfectly through methods that do not resort to such a thing and kundalini awakening is already proved that it occurs efficiently, spiritually and without dangers through Abheda Yoga
– there are also undesirable and even dangerous side effects
– it is possible to have a pleasant state but also an unpleasant state depending on our auric predominance at that moment
– it is possible to “catch foreign postures“, that is, to enter into communion with entities or lower astral worlds, to develop a demoniac or satanic inner state
– proximity to this circuit of drugs is illegal and punishable by imprisonment
– some can generate addiction or depression, decreasing the achieving power, reducing us to the level of human “vegetable”.
An excerpt translated by us (sorry for some clumsiness) from the work
“Teachings of Swami Satyananda” :
“In the tantre many methods are recommended for the awakening of kundalini.
One of them is based on plants. However, it does not mean the use of drugs.
The word used in the texts is “
“, which is translated as “plant” (medicinal).
In the view and in the history of India and the Aryans you can find some connections related to something called soma.
People used to extract the juice of a certain hanging plant called soma and ingest it in order to induce certain spiritual experiences.
The plant was picked only on certain days during the dark chenzin of the month; then it was put in a clay pitcher and buried in the ground until the full moon period.
By the full moon, the dish was unearthed and the juice drank. This offered visions and certain experiences of awakening the enlightened consciousness.
Similar to soma there are still some well-known plants in India.
Over time, they were improperly used by people, who were not prepared to use them correctly.
To eradicate this danger, his knowledge of aushadhi was withdrawn. Today we still know about certain herbs that certainly have effects in the expansion of the mind.
However, we do not spread this knowledge because to do so is forbidden [de către maestrii autentici].
Many people are fascinated to get the awakening of the kundalini. But man is not (usually) sufficiently prepared and controlled mentally, emotionally, physically and nervously to achieve this.
If he uses drugs, his kundalini may be “shaken” and may suddenly rise. But if his mind and emotions do not cooperate with him, he may have a painful experience.
Traditionally, the knowledge of “aushadi” was realized from guru to disciple. Today, however, I do not hand over this information even to the closest Sannyasini disciples.
Sometime, when humanity will change and we will notice a better behavior on an emotional, intellectual, physical and mental level, then this science may be revealed again.
Because of concern about drugs, I’ve heard and read a lot about them. The only contact I ever had with drugs was marihuana.
I did not take it to awaken my kundalini energy, because I firmly considered and believed that neither marihuana nor anything similar can awaken kundalini.
Still, I had a reason when I took marihuana or ganja.
At that time I was not in Rishikesh in my master’s ashram.
We lived in Gangotri, 10,000 feet above sea level, where the Ganges springs. Here it snows almost nine months a year and the water is frozen.
I lived in that place for nine months and every day I smoked ganja and practiced pranayama from 7 to 9 hours a day because it was very cold.
After this, I got a very cold and I had to get off the mountain because I only had money and the room I lived in was cold and wet.
When I finally got downstairs, it was determined that I had tuberculosis. Over time I have treated myself with natural means. Because of the use of marihuana, however, I lost one of the most special gifts that nature had endowed me with.
Natively, I had the most faithful photographic memory and I was very proud of it. With my eyes closed I could see passages from books in the same way that I would have read them with my eyes open.
If someone had read me for 55 minutes a text in English or Hindi I could remember every word, accent, semicolon.
I could even repoduc the text to the typewriter.
This memory was superior and it is fantastic to be able to reproduce an entire conversation, even mentioning the laughter or accents in parentheses.
Thanks to this memory I could learn a lot from the ancient texts.
After my experience with marijuana I completely lost this photographic memory. That is why, personally, I do not have a good opinion about the use of drugs.
Sanniasinii, sadhus and fachirii from India take ganja from time to time. They put it in a pipe and smoke it.
They noticed that using ganja, sexual desire is eradicated, sublimated or disintegrated.
Even households use ganja for this. I am also convinced that ganja has many medicinal properties and can improve certain aspects of health.
However, I assure you that it is pointless to use this drug to wake up your kundalini.
Kundalini is an unconscious force and only those methods that go deep into the unconscious can be used.
Soma can develop experiences related to the subconscious and can release a series of archetypes from man, but I don’t think soma can awaken kundalini.
Let’s say you have a bomb. You can’t make it explode until you detonate it.
There is a particular method to detonate a bomb; it’s a science. It is also used in cartridges and bullets.
If you throw a bullet in the air, nothing happens. Something happens only when a particular process is engaged and the bullet is detonated and lit.
Similarly, the awakening of kundalini cannot be achieved with drugs, because they cannot “detonate” it (initiation).
Kundalini lies sleeping in the unconscious statures of the mind and drugs can penetrate only the layers of the subconscious.
Whatever is in the subconscious mind, it can come to the surface whether it’s archetypes, visions, knowledge, telepathy or whatever.
Therefore, one needs the ability to immerse himself in the unconscious layers of the mind in order to awaken his kundalini.”
However, we will learn precious things about the common hemp and its age on Earth, but also about the miraculous properties of hemp in the articles dedicated to the cannabis sativa subspecies.
