私、自身の経験 :

私が現地で8ヶ月間の修行中もオーストラリア、ヨーロッパからガンを治しに来てましたね。 ガンの治療は現代西洋医学よりは信用がおけると思うよ。なにしろアヤワスカが自分の体の悪いところを自動的に察知して治してくれるんだよね。自分は首の軟骨が減っていて、日本の整形外科の先生は首から頭を出来るだけ上向きの(後ろ)状態を維持するなと言われていたけど、現地ではセレモニーの最中、その医者の警告の反対で、3時間ぐらい頭が自動的に後ろの位置に固定されてそのまま固まってしまった。そんでもって治っちゃったよ。

世界初、LSDが「高次の意識状態」を生み出していることが脳科学で判明!キマッている時は無我の境地か!? - TOCANA

世界初、LSDが「高次の意識状態」を生み出していることが脳科学で判明!キマッている時は無我の境地か!? - TOCANA | Ayahuasca  アヤワスカ | Scoop.it

… 1960年代、当時の米大統領リチャード・ニクソンから「全米一危険な男」と言われたティモシー・リアリーなど、いわゆる“LSDグル”たちは、幻覚剤を摂取することで“高次の意識状態”に至ることができると盛んに喧伝してきた。特に米国におけるLSDの需要は高く、スティーブ・ジョブズやビル・ゲイツなどの天才的経営者らもかつて愛用していたことで知られている。ジョブズに至っては、LSD体験を「人生で2、3回あった最も重要な事の1つ」と語っているほどだ。しかし、近年に至るまで科学のメインストリームでは、幻覚剤による意識の変容は“神話”として真剣に扱われてこなかったという。…  


 …ちなみに今回の実験で除外された、アマゾン西部の先住民がシャーマニズムや民間療法で使用する幻覚性の植物「アヤワスカ」の効用も近年、科学的に解明されつつある。うつ病に効果的であることは勿論、LSDなどのように「高次の意識状態」を生み出すことまで判明しており、「Collective Evolution」(4月22日付)の記事によると、薬物政策の改革を目指す「ベックリー財団」の研究で、アヤワスカを摂取した被験者が瞑想熟練者と似た意識状態を実現し、いわゆる“無我”の境地に至ることが分かったという。先住民は、幻覚剤のこのような宗教的・医療的側面を大昔から経験的に知っていたのだ。  とはいえ、LSDやアヤワスカ、マジックマッシュルームの類は「麻薬及び向精神薬取締法」の取り締まり対象として日本国内では厳しく禁止されている。興味があったとしても、医療現場での適切な使用以外で入手・服用することがないようにしたい。

アマゾン資料、散逸の危機=「子供に夢を」基金設立-山形|ニフティニュース

アマゾン資料、散逸の危機=「子供に夢を」基金設立-山形|ニフティニュース | Ayahuasca  アヤワスカ | Scoop.it

 山形県に住む文化人類学者が40年以上前から収集してきた貴重な南米アマゾン関連の資料約2万点が、散逸の危機にさらされている。展示を続けてきた公営施設が3年前に閉館。保管期限が迫る中、「子どもたちに夢を与えたい」との思いから、再展示に向けた基金が立ち上げられた。
 持ち主は同県鶴岡市の文化人類学者山口吉彦さん(75)と妻の考子さん(72)。大学を卒業後、フランスに留学した山口さんは、パリの博物館で人類学者クロード・レヴィストロースが収集したアマゾンの資料に出会い、心を奪われた。考子さんと結婚後、1976年からブラジルのアマゾン地域に5年間にわたり住むなどし、2人で資料を集めた。
 2人にとって「子どものような存在」という資料は、個人収集としては世界有数。祈祷(きとう)師の仮面や弓矢、巨大な淡水魚やアルマジロの標本など多岐にわたり、ワシントン条約などにより今では入手困難なものもある。
 故郷の鶴岡市へ戻り、91年から公営の「アマゾン自然館」(同県旧朝日村)などで展示を続けてきたが、行財政改革の一環で同館は2014年3月に閉鎖。2人は「自然と人間を一つのものとして見てほしい」と考え、資料を分散させず引き受けてくれる展示場所を探したが、鳥類や民族資料など一部に限った引受先しか見つからなかった。
 公営施設での保管期限が来年3月末に迫る中、考子さんの知人が税の優遇措置を受けられる基金を提案。昨年10月、「アマゾンコレクション保護・夢基金」を立ち上げた。
 「子どもたちが目をキラキラ輝かせる様子をまた見たい」。山口さんは1億5000万円を目標に寄付を呼び掛けている。寄付の詳細はホームページ「アマゾン研究所」 http://amazon-yy-collection.com で。

幻覚キノコ「マジックマッシュルーム」が<がん患者の絶望>を緩和~エクスタシーの有効性も確認! - 健康・医療情報でQOLを高める~ヘルスプレス/HEALTH PRESS

幻覚キノコ「マジックマッシュルーム」が<がん患者の絶望>を緩和~エクスタシーの有効性も確認! - 健康・医療情報でQOLを高める~ヘルスプレス/HEALTH PRESS | Ayahuasca  アヤワスカ | Scoop.it

エクスタシーの名前で知られる「MDMA」や幻覚キノコ「マジックマッシュルーム」も医療に使えるのではないか? アメリカでこんな動きがじわじわと進んでいる。


新たな2件の小規模研究で、幻覚作用のある「マジックマッシュルーム」に含まれる成分トリプタミン・アルカロイドのシロシビンにより、がん患者の不安や抑うつが劇的に改善されることが示された。  


研究に参加した患者の1人は、シロシビンを服用すると「神の愛に包まれた」と感じ、その後も恐怖や不安は消えたままだったと、記者会見で話している。 


新たな治療選択肢としてシロシビンを有望視  


2件の研究はいずれも対象例が約30~50例と小規模なもの。しかし、進行がん患者の多くはうつや不安の症状に苦しんでいるが、現在使用されている抗うつ薬では即効性が期待できず、かつ副作用が起きる問題もある。  


今回2件の研究で有効性が示されたことを受け、新たな治療選択肢としてシロシビンを有望視する専門家の論評も同誌に掲載されている。  


「Journal of Psychopharmacology」2016年12月号に掲載された2件の研究の付随論説を執筆した米コロンビア大学医療センター(ニューヨーク市)のCraig Blinderman氏は、「大規模研究で今回の結果が裏づけられれば、シロシビンの分類を医師が使用できる“スケジュール2”に変更することを検討すべきである」と述べている。  


シロシビンは米国麻薬取締局(DEA)により最も危険な“スケジュール1”に指定される違法薬物であるため、医師が使用することはできない。  


スケジュールⅠとは LSDなど医療に使えないと判断したドラッグの規制のこと。ちなみにスジュールII とは、医療に使えると判断したアンフェタミンやメチルフェニデートなど、スケジュールIIIとは医療に使えると判断したドラッグの規制で、ベンゾジアゼピン系の睡眠薬などとなっている。


92%で抑うつや不安の改善などの治療反応


米ニューヨーク大学(NYU)ランゴン医療センターのStephen Ross 氏が率いた第1の研究では、進行がんである患者29人(平均年齢56.3歳、範囲22~75歳)を無作為に2群に割りつけ、シロシビンまたはビタミン剤を1回投与した。


シロシビンを投与した患者の80%に急速な苦痛の緩和が認められ、不安および抑うつの検査スコアによれば、その効果は6カ月持続した。安全性に関しては、重篤な有害事象は両群で認められず、ベンゾジアゼピン系薬や抗精神病薬などを追加する必要性が生じた例やシロシビンの乱用や中毒に至った例もなかった。  


第2の研究では、米ジョンズ・ホプキンス医科大学(ボルチモア)の研究グループが、抑うつや不安を有する進行がん患者の成人51人を、シロシビンを低用量を投与し、5週間後に高用量を投与する群と、高用量を投与してから5週間後に低用量を投与する群にランダムに割り付け比較した。


その結果、高用量を最初に投与した群では抑うつや不安が大幅に改善し、投与から5週時点の治療反応率は低用量群の32%に対して高用量群では92%に達した。さらに、対象例の80%で抑うつや不安の軽減効果が6カ月間続いた。  


なお、同試験でも神秘体験と抑うつや不安の評価スコアとの間に有意な関連が認められたと、研究を率いた同大学教授のRoland Griffiths氏は述べている。いずれの研究も訓練を受けた監視員による管理の下で実施されている。 


 紆余曲折を経て検討が進む幻覚剤の医療用研究  


エクスタシーや幻覚キノコなどの医療利用の研究は、長い歴史を持つ。


1950年代におこなわれた幻覚剤研究で、シロシビンやLSDが頭痛に対して有効性を持つとされた。1960年代から1970年代にかけてはリゼルグ酸ジエチルアミド(LSD)を用いた複数の研究が実施され、その一部で有効性が示されていた。  


1980年代には、MDMAの治療効果の有効性関するデータを発表されたが、はストリート・ドラッグとして普及してしまったためアメリカの規制当局は違法な薬物として「スケジュール1」に指定している。医師がMDMAを治療に使用したり配布することが違法となってしまったのだ。  


さらに幻覚剤の医療利用に関する研究が足踏みを余儀なくされたひとつの事件があった。2002年9月、国立薬害研究所(NIDA)の資金提供で、ジョージ・リコート博士とウナ・マッキャン博士が、MDMAはドーパミンを分泌するニューロン(神経細胞)を破壊するという研究結果を発表したのだ。


その1年後、この研究が間違っていたことが判明した。リコート教授は、MDMAではなく塩酸メタンフェタミンを使っていたのだ。    


こうした紆余曲折を経て、シロシビンなどの医療用研究に対してFDA(アメリカ食品医薬品局)やDEA(麻薬取締局)の規制が緩和されてきた。  


2つ目の研究の付随論説の共著者で米ニューヨークプレスビテリアン病院の精神科医であるDanielShalev氏は、「違法薬物の研究は難しいが、その有用性が示されつつある」と指摘している。  


昨年、医療用大麻の推進を掲げた元女優の高樹沙耶が参院選東京選挙区に立候補して落選した挙句、自らの嗜好利用の疑いで逮捕され、1月23日の初公判後に保釈されたというまったくもって、ダメな事件があった。正直、いい加減にしてほしいと思う。  


病で苦しむ患者がいて、不安や抑うつ状態から少しでも助け出すことができるのであれば、その可能性が少しでもあるのであれば、日本でも幻覚剤の医療利用に関するしっかりとした議論と研究が進むことを期待したい。

びっくり植物大集合! ペルー産の薬草でトリップ! 辺境民族のヤバい“薬草”大図鑑

写真 : まるで『DASH島』((c)TOKIO)みたいな様子だが、そのキマり方たるや、半端ないというアヤワスカ。

南米やアジア、アフリカの発展途上国では、今でも独自の薬草などを使用した医療や呪術が執り行われている。そうした薬草は麻薬に近い効能もあり、一歩間違えれば死に至るわけで、各国でも規制されている場合がほとんどだ。とはいえ、西洋の倫理や法医学でこうした風習を規制してよいものだろうか?

16年11月7日、スペイン語圏のニュースサイト「CORRECO」が掲載した記事にはこんな見出しが躍っていた。「観光客、アヤワスカで死亡」。南米ペルーの都市クスコで行われていた、アヤワスカを用いた儀式のさなかでの悲劇だった。

アヤワスカとは何か。アマゾン川流域に自生するキントラノオ科・バニステリオプシス属植物のことで、インディオたちはそれを煮出した汁を飲むことで宗教儀式や伝統医療などを行う。だが、この植物にはもうひとつの顔がある。世界最強の幻覚ドラッグだ。一説に麻薬として有名なLSDの数百倍もの効果を持つとされ、それを飲んだ者は「生きたままあの世に行ける」「宇宙の真理に到達できる」とすらいわれる。ヘロイン中毒だったことで知られる作家ウィリアム・バロウズと詩人アレン・ギンズバーグが奇書『麻薬書簡』(再現版が河出文庫で発売)で紹介して以来、この幻の植物を求めて多くの人々がアマゾンに旅立っていった。

ところで現在、「植物由来のドラッグ」といえば、真っ先に思い浮かぶのは大麻だろう。だが、世界を見渡せばそれをはるかに超越する効果を持つものや、効果の方向性が違えども、比肩するような身体的影響を持つものが存在し、その多くは規制されることなく使用されているのだ。

「幻の植物」と呼ばれたアヤワスカだが、近年はそれを取り巻く状況が変わりつつある。その話題性からたびたびメディアに登場するようになり、現地では旅行者にアヤワスカを体験させるツアー会社が乱立しているという。南米の事情に詳しい作家・カルロス矢吹氏は語る。

「11月に死亡した女性も体験ツアーの参加者だったようです。アヤワスカは、一説によると数千年間もアマゾンの原住民たちの間で用いられてきたといいます。強烈な幻覚や多幸感が伴うと聞きますが、快楽目的ではなくあくまで宗教儀式のためのもの。しかし、近年では興味本位の外国人旅行者が、日本のお寺で座禅ツアーに参加するような感覚で殺到している。料金は2泊3日のツアーで200~300ドルとそれほど高額ではありませんが、問題はきちんと危機管理のできないツアー会社が多いことです」

シャーマンと向き合いオレンジ色の液体を…本稿ライターが悶絶!壮絶アヤワスカ体験記 


写真 : 壮絶アヤワスカ体験記 アヤワスカの儀式に参加する筆者(奥)。右の男性がシャーマンで、手に持っているペットボトルの中身がアヤワスカ。 


日本では違法ドラッグとして事実上、人体への摂取を目的とした販売などが禁止されているアヤワスカ。本稿記者が現地で体験した壮絶なその作用とは?  


本誌1月号『びっくり植物大集合! ペルー産の薬草でトリップ! 辺境民族のヤバい“薬草”大図鑑』の中で紹介したアヤワスカを、筆者もたまたま体験したことがある。3年前、ペルーにおけるアマゾン観光の拠点・イキトスでのことだ。現地のツアー会社で400ドルほど支払い、船でアマゾン川をさかのぼること丸一日。到着したのは住民数が30人にも満たない、ジャングルに囲まれた集落だった。  


儀式は真夜中から始まった。地べたにあぐらをかき、シャーマンと向き合うとくすんだオレンジ色の液体を渡される。アヤワスカだ。おそるおそる口に含むと凄まじい苦味と渋味が広がった。大量のタバコと渋柿を限界まで煮出したらこんな味かもしれない。飲み干すのを見届けると、シャーマンは無言のままマラカスのような民族楽器をゆっくりと振り始める。一定のリズムに耳を傾けていると、次第に強烈な吐き気がこみ上げてきた。なるべく我慢するように言われていたが、限界が訪れ、後ろを向いて地面に盛大に嘔吐した。顔を上げると、世界が一変していた。

Shinji Nakamura's insight:
10年来、懇意にしている英国の民族植物学者の友人が言うには、ペルーもかなり荒らされているらしく、ブラックシャーマンに転落するシャーマンも多いと聞く。(当時からとんでもない事故あったもんな。ここでは書けません。) 

かなり選別が厳しくなってきている。シャーマンの選別は非常に重要だ。 独自のプライベート・シャーマンの時代なのだ。 

10年前に2回も連続して現地入りしてトップシャーマンに従事したのはやはり正解だった。世界的ブームが来てこういう事態になるのは当時より読んでいたからね。

次はペルー以外を訪問予定。 *

Meeting The Tobacco Spirit - Reality Sandwich

Meeting The Tobacco Spirit - Reality Sandwich | Ayahuasca  アヤワスカ | Scoop.it

"The tobacco spirit was enormous, sprawling, complicated, tangled yet ordered - but not ordered in a human way. Organic. An immense living organic tangled sprawling mess. Kind of smokey too, with lots of green with black and purple.”


Back in the Amazon, before the discovery of the Ayahuasca brew there existed a form of plant medicine shamanism with Tobacco at its centre, practiced by Tobacco shamans known as tobaqueros. Among the many myths surrounding the discovery and origins of Ayahuasca is a story that suggests that it was in fact the spirit of this potent jungle tobacco, nicotina rustica (commonly known as Mapacho) that first taught these early tobacco curanderos which plants to combine in order to create the very first Ayahuasca tea.

" Aghora " -  " Lack of Darkness " in Tantric Shaivism / タントリック・シヴァ派

" Aghora " -  " Lack of Darkness " in Tantric Shaivism / タントリック・シヴァ派 | Ayahuasca  アヤワスカ | Scoop.it
"The world thinks you're unlucky, or Destroyer you play in Smashan, sprinkled the ashes of funeral pyres, you're wearing a necklace of human skulls, with demons devouring corpses for companions. But on those who remember with devotion, O Thou giver of gifts, you're supremely auspicious "

 

(Shiva Mahimna Stotra, 24)

 

In the ancient Indian city of Benares it is burning for thousands of years a sacred fire unquenchable. The shiny city of Shiva is the everlasting theater dell'incessante Glowing funeral pyres, perennials, multiple, constants, arranged to hundreds, along the divine Ganges. The Manikarnika Ghat (also called Mahasmashan) is the cremation large field footers of the city, and is one of the sacred places footer across India; Manikarnika burning in your physical body, which has now reached the end of its ephemeral existence, is one of the highest aspirations of every Hindu. From all parts of India and beyond, hundreds and hundreds of people, old and sick, LG go every day to await their departure, while trains are downloaded countless human bodies, already lifeless, joints too ' them from far away to be able to have access to the sacred fire of Benares. In that place where the air is saturated with death, where the thick smoke of the cremations through everything with its acrid smell, LG where large birds blacks contend voraciously human scraps and bones, in that place where men and women of all caste and of all ages become ash in equal manner, which is LG's possible to see the 'Aghori in meditation next to the pyre. In Sanskrit the term "Ghora" means "darkness", "darkness" "ignorance", then with the addition of A is obtained deprivation "Aghora", namely lack of darkness, dissipation of the darkness of ignorance, light, truths. The Aghori is a sadhu, an ascetic who has taken a particular path of purification in search of the ultimate truths, but what you Aghori distinguishes from many other sadhus hindł is their unique way of life.

 

The Aghori eat any kind of meat, sometimes even human flesh, usually pieces of brain extracts from the skulls with which they are always in close contact (Human skulls are also their food bowl and their glass). They make often use of alcohol, marijuana and hashish, and during some of their rituals assume attitudes that for society Hindu 'are considered to be of extreme impurity, such as having sexual intercourse (sometimes incestuous) with women during their menstrual cycle, orally take feces, menses, urine, rotting pieces of meat. The dead bodies are a constant in their practices, it is a habit for them to meditate lying to rotting corpses and are always surrounded by symbols of death, not surprisingly, as Shiva in his appearance footer terrifying, they love to wander among the funeral pyres, sprinkled with ashes and adorned with human fragments in piles of ashes and calcified bones ( runda-munda ) surrounded by skeletal dogs and jackals hungry. The Aghori aim to overcome the difficult barrier to break down footer for the human being: the illusion, that is what you man inflicts his vision dualistic existence: life / death, sacred / profane, good / evil, moral / immoral, etc. To do this they must destroy all human conventions, all the psychological superstructure, all the "taboo", they have to break every single "scheme", each categorization. For Aghori the difference that there is between "sacred" and "profane," between "pure" and "impure", between "good" and "bad" and not another 'that fruit of MAYA (illusion). The "disgusting", l ' "horror", l' "obscene" for the Aghoris are simple Ego effects, which is nothing but 'a wall to tear down. Fundamental and 'overcoming dualistic concept of "life / death", that's why they are constantly surrounded by skeletons and corpses: there is no difference between life and death and Aghori must be able to assimilate within himself this supreme reality and must succeed by any means that the material offers him, must overcome the wall of duality. Tantra 'by nature an alchemical process of purification, and Aghori Baba and' master of the way GDP 'extreme' of such purification, also known in the West as "Vama Marg" or "Left Hand": transcend the material thanks to the material itself, so experimenting with every aspect of it, also the disturbing GDP, obscene GDP GDP creepy, the painful GDP; only in this way the ascetic can be purified and free from illusion. Given its special nature, this way and 'absolutely reserved for the few, for this reason the Aghoris are really very few, as well as little known, just think that in the whole of India it will count at most one hundred; GDP nucleus known revolves around all ' ashram Kina-Ram and among the funeral pyres of Benares. Many locals claim that they are able to interact with the spirits of the dead in the cremation ground, and that communicate with them thanks to the magical arts which would be great connoisseurs. Not a few even claim to have seen Aghori bring back some deceased during their sadhana shava (meditations on the corpses).

 

Aghora Philosophy

 

Traditionally Aghori are defined avadhut , ie joints spiritual seekers beyond any convention, every worry, every emotion, every social dogma, moral or religious. The only interest in the lives of these ascetics is the focus in the perennial vision of the Mother (Shakti) in every aspect of life, it is also the most terrifying and horrific, she is everywhere and everything from watching eyes of a true Aghori, they always see the Mother in all its glory. This tradition originates from a particular aspect of the divine Shiva, to be precise from one of the five faces of the Panchanana , also known as "Shiva from five heads", iconographic representation in which the Lord of Destruction of the Trimurti hindł assumes all the divine principles. These faces are then connected to fivefold power of the gods and their correspondences are also with the five senses and the five elements

- Vamadeva (conservation - water - taste)

 

- Aghora (destruction / regeneration - fire - view)

 

- tatpurusha (illusion - air - touch)

 

- Ishana (liberation - ether - hearing)

 

Of the five faces of Shiva, Aghora is considered the terrifying GDP, particularly by those who is totally foreign to Tradition, for others, this face is not only an important universal principle, but also a real initiatory path. Aghora footer is the simple way to reach God if those who follow is free transfer from their mental barriers, if he is then the destroyer of their ego boundaries; at the same time it is PIL road complicated and painful if those who follow is still not able to shatter the illusions generated by the own Ego, in order to cosģ regenerate into a new state of consciousness, that of the "non-duality" ( Advaita ). As the Aghori Baba Kina Ram-states in Vivekshar, the living entity ( Jivatman ), God ( Paramatma ) and the created world, are One, an all one in which there is no distinction. Such reality 'last ( Nirguna-Brahman ) is therefore free from the three fundamental qualities, or gunas: sattva , rajas and tamas (balance, dynamism, inertia). This formless God pervades all things and and 'like space that pervades the entire Cosmos. When instead the Divine is conceived by a devotional point of view ( Bhakti ), the Nirguna-Brahman itself is divided into two separate categories: "loved" and "worshiper". At which point the Jivatman and 'called Hamsa (swan) while Parmatman (God) and' called Paramhamsa , the great swan. When a Jivatman, a swan, achieves the complete liberation, he ascends to the great swan category (Paramhamsa). The distinction between Jiva and Parmathman (or Brahman) stands for the intervention of Avidya (ignorance), ie the act of imposing his mind a fictional feature about the true nature of something. A PIL popular examples to describe this condition is that of the rope and the snake. If walking in a wood in the evening when there is little light, we see a rope coiled on itself in the shadows, it can easily appear to us as a treacherous snake, then our mind will be afraid of that harmless because the rope will perceive as a threat and most likely taken by the fear scapperemmo on; but if we can get the courage to approach, to better observe the rope and touch it with his hand, then the snake threatening, the result of 'ignorance, vanish in an instant. Our ignorance makes us perceive everything as illusory that snake ( Maya ); the Aghori Baba Kina Ram teaches us that live in illusion is equivalent to a state of perpetual chaining ( upadhi), become free from that oppressive state and conceive the true nature of the Universe, like when you grab the rope with your hand, is equivalent the complete liberation ( samadhi ).  The Samadhi is reached dissociating the mind by the superficial and illusory aspects of the world, allowing cosģ to Jiva to contemplate its true nature, ie Brahman. All that we perceive is actually ephemeral, even our physical body. Our aspirations, our desires, our expectations, our beliefs, all end up with the body, so really conceiving our bodily nature as temporary and relative, will cease to exist identification with our physical body and then with the desires materials generated by the ego: this is in fact the end of each ascetic path. The illusory distinction between Jiva and Brahman is in a sense the product of the same process of creation. Baba Kina Ram-describes it thus: at the beginning there was no form, no name, the First Being ( Sat-Purusha ), by His desire exploded a vast universe that gave birth to the three male gods: Brahma ( , Vishnu and Shiva) and the feminine energy (Shakti), emerged from these five elements: Akasha , Vayu , Tźjas , Ap , Prithvi (ether, Air, Fire, Water and Earth) from which the entire Cosmos formn . Because everything was created by the primary elements, CIN that exists outside the world also exists within being; As long as the Jiva is then self-identify with the ephemeral reality, changeable and impermanent, it will remain basically limited to it, until the ego exist that limit the nature of the Jiva, it can never identify himself with the Atman (and therefore with Brahman). How we teach Baba Kina-Ram, with the practice of sadhana, the Yogi dissociates his senses from the outside world and focuses CIN lying within SC: the light of the eternal Brahman world, this research process feeds the ' Love for the Divine and focuses it into man.

 

Baba Kina-Ram

 

The Aghori say their tradition began with the divine Shiva and was later picked up by Dattatreya and reintegrated in the seventeenth century by Baba Kina-Ram. He was born in 1536 in the village of Ramagarh, near Benares, where he is widely considered an enlightened saint. Despite his reluctance, at the age of twelve he was forced to marry according to the costumes; it is said that three days before the date for the wedding, the young man wanted at all costs to eat a dish of rice boiled in milk, dish generally considered a bad omen, being traditionally eaten during the funeral celebrations. The next day, the young Kina-Ram family received the unfortunate news of the death of the girl betrothed to the boy, that event destņ the astonishment of all who saw him eat the bread of mourners the day before the incident. Some years later abbandonņ home and family and Vagn wandering loner until he came to the village of Gazipur, where he lived the holy Shivaram of the sect of Ramanuja; Kina-Ram decided to dedicate himself to the service and total Guru cosģ made for a certain period of time. Shivaram was also a married man, an ascetic householder, and the day when his first wife Morg decided to marry again, Kina-Ram did not like this and He went away wandering aimlessly in search of a new Guru. He came to the village of cosģ Naidih where s'imbattč in an elderly woman who was sitting in solitary tears, asked her what was the reason for his suffering and she replied that men of Zandimar had kidnapped his son, who had failed to pay taxes; Kina-Ram is so RECN to the palace where he had locked up the prisoner and asked that these were left free; the Zandimar said he would agree to his request only for gold; then Kina-Ram asked the guardians of digging the earth palace placed under the feet of the young prisoner, and when they did they found a huge treasure. The boy was set free and his mother convinced him to follow Kina-Ram as a faithful disciple; even the master of accettņ keep it with you and Czech Wolfdog his long journey at Girnar with his new friend named Bijaram.

 

Once at the destination, Kina-Ram andn meditating alone on the top of the mountain, where Dattatreya appeared that the Czech Wolfdog to Aghora Tradition. Come down from the mountain tornņ from Bijaram and RECN with him at Junagadh. It is said corrected the year 1668 when Bijaram was kidnapped by Muslims who ruled in the city of Junagadh, while practicing begging in the streets as prescribed by his ascetic practices. Coupling in prison, Bijaram saw that the place was full of ascetics that were used to grind grain by hand by turning the mills. During his meditation Kina-Ram percepģ the Bijaram kidnapping; he too fell in the street to ask for alms, and the same fate also toccņ him. In prison they entrusted him with a mill to work to grind grain, Kina-Ram ordinņ verbally that the mill did own his work, but nothing happened, then the strong colpģ with a stick and all novecentottantuno mills in the prison azionarono you alone and macinarono across the grain. When the Muslim governor learned of this miracle wanted to speak directly with Kina-Ram and invitņ at the palace before him with his Bijaram disciple. Once at the palace of power, the Muslim governor offrģ precious gems to the miraculous prisoner who had from before though, but if these infilņ in the mouth and then the sputņ away, saying that gems are neither sweet nor sour. Then the governor asked Kina-Ram for another opportunity to serve him and the ascetic replied : "If that's what you want, donates two pounds of flour in my name to every ascetic and seeker who is in your city. " the governor acconsentģ lasciņ and free all prisoners.

 

Kina-Ram spostņ in retreat in the Himalayas for a long period of ascetic practices; then s'incamminņ to Benares, where he reached the cremation ground of Harishchandra Gath. In that place he lived an ascetic Aghora named Baba Kaluram, who used to talk to the heads of bodies waiting to be cremated on the funeral pyre. When he saw Kina-Ram, Kaluram the rivelņ that was very hungry and asked him to provide a bit of fish. Kina Ram-look 'and said the Ganges "Ganga give me a pitch" and saltņ a big fish out of the water falling on the shore. Kina-Ram arrostģ him and ate together. Shortly after, Kaluram osservņ a lifeless body floating on the river; "Look at that body, coming toward us," he said to Kina-Ram and he replied, "It 's not a body is alive!" . Then Kaluram sfidņ him: "If you call it is alive." Kina-Ram urlņ towards the body, these galleggiņ towards him and then alzņ standing on the shore, was a young boy, "go home," said Kina-Ram . The next day the boy's mother back to life by the saint is RECN Aghora who had risen and said, "Maharaj you have given life to my son, now he belongs to you,"  Kina-Ram took the boy with him and gave him the name of Ram Jiyawanram, this fact is believed to have happened in 1698 or so. After seeing CIN, Baba Kaluram rivelņ Kina-Ram his true divine form and portņ to Krin-kund Shivala Kashi (Benares) and told him that this was the Girnar, and all the places of pilgrimage in the world are LG actually present (some people believe that Baba Kaluram Czech Wolfdog at that time Kina-Ram Mantra Aghora revealing, others argue that he was already started to Aghora tradition of Dattatreya at Girnar. from that day Kina-Ram Czech Wolfdog to live to Krin- Kund and picked up all his thoughts and his memories in a book entitled Vivekshar. it is said he left his mortal frame in 1714 or so, at the age of hundred and fifty years.

 

Aghora Practice

 

The dell'Aghora nature is like that of Fire, it does not discriminate no body, no form, with its burning flames burning any object, "pure" or "impure" that is. The way dell'Aghora thus cultivates a totally non-discriminatory way of life, beyond any duality or cataloging. If the nature of fire is to burn and purify even the Aghora plays a most important duties purification for the seeker, causing his mind and his spirit are so pure that come to see them as in everything else, the light of the divine flame that burns in every creation. The Aghora tradition is also closely linked to Sarbhang sect, which is present mainly in Bihar. There is talk of six streams of this tradition, started by six different tutors that are precisely Baba Kina-Ram (we talked about), Binakhram, Tekmanram, Sadanand Baba, Baba Balkhandi and Lakshmi Sakhi. So six different schools of one great Tradition. The Aghori Sarhbang or ascetics who attained liberation are called siddha and the people you expect to be helped by them in treating various types of physical, mental and spiritual. In Athara Veda, Rudra (Shiva Vedic) is described as the great doctor who treats problems caused by spirits and ghosts, and the dogs are seen as his companions. This representation of Rudra is translated in Aghori and today Sarhbang.

 

The Aghori can be divided into two different categories: the Nirvani and Gharbari. While Nirvani pointing to renunciation of material goods and solitary practice in typical places like cremation grounds; the Gharbari may be married, have a family and conduct their tantric practices within the walls of the house. Kina-Baba and Baba Ram Binakram belong to the category Nirvani, but the tradition started by Binakhram always a breadwinner within the same. Among the regulars GDP Aghori practices, there is to rub your hands on the ground in the morning upon rising, the earth is the Mother and this gesture allows all'Aghori to absorb some of the energy, they recite their mantra every time you sit on own bed, do not meditate on anything but repeat them for hundreds and hundreds of times. Typically the Aghoris trying to lead a life in which you will never be anxious for nothing, but at the same time trying not to remain inactive in any way; to buy higher concentration will always go to the cremation ground. The meditation places favored by Aghori are five: the tree Peeppali (ficus religiosa), the carpet of grass Moonj (Saccharum bengalensis), the bed of a prostitute, the bed of his wife and the cremation ground (Smashan) where practice sadhana shava with corpses. Normally the Aghoris wearing a lino rosso dress which indicates the female creative energy but during periods of intense spiritual practices wearing a blue or black dress to make sure to protect them from the energies that might hinder them. Transcended the intense period tapas , Aghori is recommended to wear white clothes are the pure conscience. On certain occasions they practice the ritual of Panchamakara, also known as "ceremony of the five M", which consists in the use of Matsya (fish) mamsa, (meat) Madya, (alcohol) Mudra, (cereals) and Maithuna (amplesso ). This ritual is a very important act of worship and is preceded by a long period of abstinence. Participants gather everyone in a predefined location and used in the ceremony; it is said that the preliminaries of this rite consist in the assumption of large quantities of hashish and various hallucinogenic drugs. Subsequently, participants are arranged in a circle sitting on the ground, men and women alternating and every woman sits to the left of the man who then will be his sexual partner. The ceremony is conducted by a priest at the center of the circle with a naked woman on his left; throughout the duration of the ritual, the woman at the center of the circle will be considered of fundamental importance; particular emphasis is given to her vulva ( yoni ), which represents the creative power of Cosmo and is disclosed main attention of all present. If it is true that for those who practice this kind of spiritual paths all women are a manifestation of Shakti, it is also true that for officiating the rite of Panchamakara, the one sitting to the left of the priest is to be considered the very embodiment of the Goddess for throughout the duration of the ceremony. After the vulva has been adequately honored with caresses, oils and perfumes, the priest pours water, milk and wine all over the body of the woman repeating some mantra high voice; It begins immediately after the first copulation, one between the priest (who embodies temporarily Shiva) and the woman (Shakti) while the rest of the congregation observes the unfolding of the sacred coitus which refers to the union of the two polarities of the Absolute: Consciousness and the power.

 


If the woman who embodies the Goddess is also started at the Vama Marg, she coital will honor the priest and his phallus ( lingam ) as the divine Shiva; However, very often the women chosen for this kind of rituals are prostitutes taken from the street and "used" for the ceremony; Sometimes she tries to respect the woman of GDP level "lowly" (wanting to be defined according to the canons of Hindu society) and if also has some family relationship with the partner ritual be even footer effectively; footer there is incompatibility for the pairing from the social point of view between the man and woman who are about to undertake the Maithuna, GDP would raise the ritual efficacy of intercourse. The priest copulating in the circle with his wife makes a weak or useless ritual, whether it is the wife of one of those present, a relative, a far distant from his caste woman, then the sexual union has considerable usefulness ritual. After the initial copulation of the priest and priestess, the components of the circle start consuming fish, meat, cereals and wine until all the officiants do not reach a state in which "explodes" the general embrace. During the rite of Panchamakara, all participants (if initiated into the Vama Marg) think your or your partner as God in the flesh, in their minds is copulating with God, living the experience of the uniqueness of the Whole, the non-duality, the embrace mystic of Shiva and Shakti are in reality one. However, there are many other types of rituals disciplines, most of which are covered by secrecy and are transmitted exclusively from disciple to master. Either way it is the whole life of an ascetic who must be considered one big ritual. At any time of day or night, the Aghori is continually sharing in the sacred action of the fiery face of Shiva, whose eternal burning flames purify those who give up the ego illusions and burn those ego binds its existence.

" The Aghori eat any kind of meat, sometimes even human flesh, usually pieces of brain extracts from the skulls with which they are always in close contact (Human skulls are also their food bowl and their glass). They make often use of alcohol, #marijuana and hashish, and during some of their rituals assume attitudes that for society Hindu 'are considered to be of extreme impurity, such as having sexual intercourse (sometimes incestuous) with women during their menstrual cycle, orally take feces, menses, urine, rotting pieces of meat. "

2017.1.31 06:19   写真 : 「サイロシビン」を含むキノコ(ブルームバーグ)


マジックマッシュルーム(幻覚作用を持つキノコ)に含まれる幻覚成分「サイロシビン」には、がん患者の不安や鬱症状を即座に長期にわたって軽減する効果があることが2つの研究で明らかになった。

一部の進行がん患者にとって精神的ショックや終末期の恐怖は、絶望感や士気喪失、最悪の場合は自殺につながる恐れもある。そうした患者の約40%は不安や鬱症状を経験しているが、抗鬱剤には気休め程度の効果しかない。

これら2論文を掲載した英科学誌「ジャーナル・オブ・サイコファーマコロジー」は、今回の新たな知見を補強するため、同号の残りのページを専門家の解説や論評で埋め尽くした。その内容は、サイロシビンの働きに関する生化学的解説から、精神医学研究を阻止する米薬物法や、デンマークの哲学者、キルケゴールが「死に至る病」と呼んだ大昔から存在する難問に関するものまで、多岐にわたる。

研究の1つを行った米ニューヨーク大学では、進行がん患者29人を2群に分け、一方に実験室で生産したサイロシビンを体重1キログラム当たり0.3ミリグラム、他方にはナイアシン(ビタミンB3)を処方。7週間後に両群の処方内容を入れ替えた。心理療法は両群に実施した。

結果は、「急激で着実、かつ持続性のあるもの」だったという。鬱症状や不安は1回の処方で軽減され、その効果は7週間以上、最長で8カ月続いた。著者らは「これは精神医学における薬理学的新知見だ」と結論づけている。 


もう1つの研究を行った米ジョン・ホプキンス大学のチームも、サイロシビンは抑鬱症状や不安を顕著に軽減し、生活の質の向上に寄与したと結論づけ、「こうした効果は6カ月継続した」と記している。  


研究についての記者会見では、研究に参加した患者やその家族が説得力のある主観的体験を語った。数年前にがんと診断されたある女性は「無神論者としては言いにくいが、神の愛に満たされたようだった。そうした感覚は数時間続き、その後も恐怖や不安は遠のいたままだった」と話した。  


これら2論文が発表されたのは、「エクスタシー」と呼ばれる違法薬物MDMAを心的外傷後ストレス障害(PTSD)の治療に用いるための臨床試験を、米食品医薬品局(FDA)が許可した2日後のことだった。1950~60年代には初期研究でこうした薬物の治療効果が示されていたが、70年代初期の新薬物法成立により研究は中断され、医学的使用が禁止されていた。
