Using drugs for spiritual unfoldment

A cybercadet from Australia wonders what he can do about his 15 year old son that uses drugs for spiritual awakening. Gurudeva warns that there is a consequence to every short cut and that one simple drug leads to another and a another before resulting in brain damage. Gurudeva says that in Sanatana Dharma sadhana, the ardous path of tapas, is the sustaining path for spirituality.

It is not a matter of becoming the Self, but of realizing that you never were not the Self. And what is that Self? It is Parasiva. It is God. It is That which is beyond the mind, beyond thought, feeling and emotion, beyond time, form and space.
