Bam shankar = “ I am Shiva ", here is what Sadhus (holy Men) say before smoking heavily their shilom filled up with marijuanna. They are renunciants and live in ashrams. They worship Shiva. They smoke herb because Shiva originally discovered its spiritual powers. They have abandonned sensual pleasures and the illusions of the physical world. I've been spending a lot of time with them during our trip to Nepal. Each time was a powerful and very spiritual moment.
