I don't like this overly permissive thing with drugs and whatnot in some corners of Buddhism, it's like "well the mahasiddhas did it so what the hell", really smacks of just reinforcing one's own indulgences, tbh.
I don't even doubt that substances have been used, by some practitioners, during some times, to good effect.
Frankly though, when it's a bunch of over-indulgent first worlders (myself included in that category) advocating this kind of "journey", one can't help having some real strong reservations.

Look up Ayahuasca. Not DMT.

Pseudo Buddhist justifications for getting stoned. He doesn't even take it in a ritual context. "Oh, the first dose hasn't kicked in yet let's double it..." What a dumb ass. The kind of behaviour one would expect from an adolescent tripper.Tron010101 wrote:Alex Grey on Ayahuasca and Buddhism.

Let's see how you fare with that task.
