lol...no problems, maybe I didn't express myself clearly?

I think me and you are prone to cross wires anyway, so we have to be careful. If I'm ever being sarky, I'd probably be blatant with it.

Going back to the thread: given modern research on cannabinoids and other anecdotal evidence, maybe those purtaan Singhs were ahead of the curve when it came to understanding and using naturally occurring, plant based remedies?

why wouldn't they be they were listening to Guru Pita ji ...he said in bani that multiple generations would be infertile if we smoked ...the scientists are now finding out that grandparents are destroying the fertility of grandchildren and onwards...

drinking as well ... he told used to eat sarblohi bibek langar to avoid illness and only now the world is catching up on the complex relationships in our bodies and our immune systems with relation to iron, and cooking in iron vessels is the only way you make it be able to absorbed as opposed to tabs.

I'm talking about wider cultural/traditional knowledge of plants and substances occurring in nature. Not necessarily directly from dasmesh pita himself but part of the wider cultural understandings/traditions in Panjab in bygone days. Call it traditional pharmacology if you want.

I think some people equate drinking sukh-nidhaan in the past as the equivalent of someone smoking a 'spliff' today. The two things are totally different and for totally different purposes.

And modern science is finding that substances in cannabis might be helpful for all sorts of medical/psychological problems.

So there are other rational explanations of why our ancestors might have consumed bhang outside of wanting to get high.

That's not excuse to get stoned though! lol

probably it is an attempt to malign nihangs , but it is true that Hindus consume bhang for getting out of their heads and so have pushed their bad attitudes into our circles.

I'd put it down to human nature myself.

    • Don't focus too much on it. I had a friend who was getting Darshan of various deities, it all stopped because he became obsessed with it. Just remember this is all Maya, focus on Akaal only. Why care about the future when we ourselves have no power to change it?

      Pali is a dialect of Prakrit, in that you are correct. But lets correct some of your other points: The word 'Sanskrit' does not occur anywhere in the Vedas. Not a single verse mentions this word as denoting a language. The father of Sanskrit himself: Panini, says that the language of the Hindu Vedas was the  Chandasa language, not Sanskrit. Are you TejS coming before us today claiming to be more of an authority on Sanskrit than Panini himself ?  because the father of Sanskrit himself says Sanskrit came about much much later !   Buddha, when tasked with putting his teachings down into the tongues of the people chose Prakhrit and others. Not once did he even mention the word Sanskrit let alone write anything in it. This shows that Sanskrit didn't even exist at the time of Bhudda.  Every single coin and written artefact found in the Punjab since time immemorial has inscriptions in Prakrit. Not one single thing written in Sanskrit has been found. Not one. And remember, every single archeological coin and artefact found in Punjab (bar a very small number) has Prakrit written in the Aramaic script that our Punjabi forefathers wrote in. Nothing written in the Hindu's scared devangari script has ever been found in Punjab. Even far away from Punjab at the historic nanaghat caves in western India where India's oldest writings are found on the cave walls; all the writing is in Prakrit. Nothing there was written in any language called Sanskrit because such a language did not yet exist. Bahmans would invent it later as a tool of subjugating the people. That's where you fit in the picture. In order to peddle the filth of saffronisation in India the Hindu nationalists need fools to carry the made up and distorted message. Like I said, that's where you fit into the picture. Your forum avatar and past affiliation with the pakandi nang Niddar Singh has been duly noted by all. Your nang group proudly proclaims that Sikh warriors exist to protect the Hindu legacy. Fair play to you....you're certainly being true to what you believe. btw....Apabrahmsa is Prakrit.
