Yogi Unaffected By Lsd

Neem Karoli Baba aka Maharaji was no ordinary yogi. In fact he may very well have been Hanuman Himself. No, really. 

If anyone is interested in tasting pure bhakti I suggest the books Miracle of Love by Ram Dass or By His Grace by Dada Mukerjee - the first is a collection of stories about Maharaji, the second is the recount of his closest devotee's time with him.

@Leo Gura He was a Harvard professor. I believe he got the LSD from the Lab to use for his research. So I'm assuming its legit LSD.

 

After returning from a visiting professorship at the University of California, Berkeley, Alpert accepted a permanent position at Harvard, where he worked with the Social Relations Department, the Psychology Department, the Graduate School of Education, and the Health Service, where he was a therapist. Perhaps most notable was the work he did with his close friend and associate Timothy Leary. Both Alpert and Leary experimented with and devoted intensive research to the potentially therapeutic effects of hallucinogenic drugs such as psilocybin, LSD-25, and other psychedelic chemicals.

 @Leo Gura @Garuda

In the East there has been a secret tradition of tantrikas who go on practicing meditation — and side by side they go on taking drugs in greater and greater amounts for a certain reason. They are not interested in drugs, they are interested in meditation. But they go on increasing the amount of the drug slowly slowly, so that they can remain alert with the drug. It takes a long time, it is a very subtle process of awakening. In the hands of the fools it will be destructive, it will be suicidal. Hence it is a sacred tradition. Only the master gives it to the disciple — and very rarely. If he finds some disciple of such integrity, then only does he give this process: “Meditate and go on increasing the amount of the drug so slowly that it never overpowers you and your watchfulness remains intact.” But the drug will start removing all rocks and it will bring up all that you have repressed down the ages in your many lives.

@Nature oh hi neem karoli baba

Interesting story how he guessed Richard's mother bad health, specifically her spleen. Not sure if true but it's quite a story of how he just broke Richard Alpert's ego down.

@Vanish I can imagine storing LSD in India was a sketchy affair.

'Venom Man' Lets Deadliest Snakes Bite Him

In old, ancient Indian history, there is reference to a particular detective woman. Every king had beautiful girls to be trained from their very childhood in such a way that their whole body became poisonous. They were known as VISHKANYA, as poisonous girls -- very beautiful. And then the king could send those girls to the enemies, to the enemy king, and they were so beautiful that he was bound to be attracted. Once they kissed the king, the king was dead. They were absolutely poisonous. Even their kiss was enough -- no need to bite.

A moment comes when no drug helps. These Tantrikas have been working through drugs towards awareness. When no drug affects you, you are already integrated, and now you can move towards the height without any fear of falling -- because you cannot be made unconscious, you have crystallized your consciousness. But ordinarily one is not working through drugs for consciousness, and the path is very dangerous. Ordinarily one is seeking unconsciousness, a little forgetfulness in this world of worries, anguish, anxiety, this world which looks like a hell. One wants to forget. All your pleasures are just forgetfulness.

Eckart Tolle brought up this specific case once and his take on it was that this guru must have seen/experienced all kind of weird stuff but that he simply treated that as anything else that would appear in the "field of consciousness" and that he just stayed calm about it.
