ganja (from the ancient Sanskrit word: Ganjika), is a spiritual act, often accompanied by scriptural study; it is a sacrament that cleans the body and mind, heals the soul, exalts the consciousness, facilitates peacefulness, brings pleasure, and brings us closer to God, or one should say realize unity further. They often burn the herb when in need of insight from Ajah. The herb is the most sacred form of the mother (matter) when it is burned it and the solid matter transforms into smoke it symbolizes how though material birth we reach spiritual liberation. Personal consumption for religious purposes is a valid reason for partaking in the smoking of ganja. It is not being abused using it in this way, and to the Ajah is not seen as intoxicating but enlivening, as it is a gift from the mother-earth given to us to nurse the spirit.
In Hindu mythology shakti(matter) sees her husband(Shiva/consciousness) suffering and gives him ganja to eat and smoke. Once taken Shiva fell into deep meditation….
Herb (marijuana) is a Godly creation from the beginning of the world. It is known as the weed of wisdom, angel’s food, the tree of life and even the “Wicked Old Ganja Tree”. Its purpose in creation is as a fiery sacrifice to be offered to our Redeemer during obligations. The political worldwide organizations have framed mischief on it and called it drugs. To show that it is not a dangerous drug, let me inform that it is used as food for mankind, and as a medicinal cure for diverse diseases. Ganja is not for commerce; yet because of the oppression of the people, it was raised up as the only liberator of the people, and the only peacemaker among the entire generation. Ganja is the sacramental rights of every man worldwide and any law against it is sin. Ganja is said to be a form of God, and in this ritual “reasoning” the Ganja plant is worshiped just as the temple images.
The ritual goes as such;
1.the bowl is packed/the joint rolled,
2. the honored (usually the most deserving) says a mantric-prayer and takes the first hit,
3.the mantric -prayer
“aum Shiva Shankara hari hari ganja”
……..it means Shiva the joy giver grant us infinity from the ganja..
4. and the the sacrament is smoked.
Sacramental etiquette, how to treat the holy weed…
one should offer the first hit to the guest,
pass to the left for peace , while right is reserved for war…
hold the pipe with your left hand, as this hand is naturally closer to your heart.
