Watch the Kalka panthi practicing “bhang ritual” (see end of video). Should a Sikh of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Jee be involved in such practices?
JANTAR MANTAR KALI KALANTAR! yes indeedee.
History: Bhang was first used as part of the Hindu rite in India around 1000 BC and soon became an integral part of Hindu culture. In the ancient text Atharvaveda, bhang is described as a beneficial herb that “releases anxiety”.
Sadhus and Sufis use Bhang to boost meditation and to achieve transcendental states. Bhang or cannabis is also used amongst Sufis as an aid to spiritual ecstasy.
Guru Granth Sahib Jee:
Dedicate yourself to the worship of your Husband Lord; this is pleasing to your Divine Beloved. If you walk in accordance with your own false ego, then your Husband Lord will not be pleased with you. This path of loving devotional worship is very difficult; how rare are those who find it, through the Gurdawaaraa (the Doorway to God-realization). Says Nanak, that one, upon whom God casts His Glance of Grace, links his consciousness to the worship of the Lord
(Sri Guru Granth Sahib Jee p-440).
