If you can find ONE reference in Sutta, Sutra, Shastra or Tantra for the positive aspects of the use of marijuana in Buddhist meditation practice I will take up pot smoking again. ONE REFERENCE.Ganja Sutta
Thus have I heard,
Once the Blessed One was sitting around with a few monks getting baked and he said:
"Guys...Puff, puff, puff... Cough, cough-cough, cough-cough-cough-cough, splutter, COUGH! Whoa, that one really hit the spot! Guys, I was thinking... puff, puff, yeah... hmmmm... I was thinking that... Whoa, yeah... ... ... What was I saying?"
To which Sariputra answered: "Yo, Buddha man, you gonna hang onto that joint all day or what? Pass it on bro, pass it on!"
To which the Blessed One replied:
"Yo, chill Sari man... puff, puff-puff, puff-puff-puff, splutter, cough-cough, cough..."
And all those gathered felt a great attraction to the Dharma and took refuge in the Buddha, his crew and the ganja until it was their turn to toke.
great stoner stereotype. quite humorous.
i haven't read every sutta, sutra, shastra & tantra. have you ?
so i couldn't say for sure there is nothing in there about marijuana in particular.
and even if there were, didn't the buddha kind of imply that we should all make up our own minds about alot of these kinds of things?
