Chillums and Charas
I am not a hindu, but many of my friends have aspirations in that
direction, and I am very sympathetic to hindu teachings. One thing
continues to bother me however. To the hippy sceptic one of the main
appeals of hinduism seems to be the religious justification for
smoking large quanties of charas. My question is why do sadus do it?
Is getting high really supposed to bring you closer to god or
enlightenment, or do they do it merely to distinguish themselves from the rest of their society?
