It was the "interesting" part of the article about Ganesh Baba that motivated me to post the link. As for the "holiness" of this yogi, who's to judge? Certainly seems to understand the kriya path and was initiated by one of L.M's most advanced disciples.

I believe it is a common practice among certain Indian renunciates who worship Lord Shiva to engage in the daily smoking of ganja. That's been going on forever and is widely known.

I, when younger found the yogic path through certain experiences that came to me through the agency of psycho-active substances. Today, however, I agree that the continued usuages of these types of things can certainly be detrimental to one's sadhana, particularly if one sees them as something one must have to feel "high."

Anyway, each to their own.
