I am just writing this to get some feed back regarding the drug issue. In my life I have used some drugs but not to get high persea but really to open up the mind and they worked as I respected them for what they were for and when the mind was opened, I was never able to take them again as I became too ill but they had accomplished their purpose.
In India, gangi is used in spiritual form and for spiritual reasons.
Now, I have to take drugs to be able to live and exists in this world, now what does that make me a drug addict? Does that take away my spirituality? Does that make me a bad person not worthy to be a Buddhist because of the rules that says no drugs? I'd be interested in any comments.
