Material anarchy of the disowned
Sons and daughters of spiritual hierarchism
Of glorious tragedies
And divine inheritance
Failing to tolerate the tolerant and their tolerance
Ass raping each other in their pseudo spiritual war
Step right up for today’s latest!
Who is more open minded now?
Material anarchy of the disowned
The lunatic in my head
Wants to be FREE!
Analyze till I’m paralyzed?
We are the trip
Trip on this trip
Trip the fuck out
භැම්දෑම් නෑ හැම්තැනම් නෑ
singing praises to a wild flower
protesting their diagnosis of illusion and delusion,
gain wisdom as they extract its essence
What more sense can be made
in this cosmic abstract?
Sacred golden robes, trampled by peasants
Onward they go, shouting blasphemies at the masters of war and balance
The siege of dhamma deepa begins
As a peace cry rings in the peasants lips
Hymns from the three worlds
Serenade and encourage
Of the universal elements
We chant a cry of peace
It grows stronger and stronger
Until the foundations of deceit
Lie crumbling at our feet
The crackpot dance
The war drum lullaby
New world order
Beating war drums
Go to sleep
Orange mob rises
Go to sleep
Step away from your head
Killing to the pirith chant
New world zombie
My refuge, the dhamma
My refuge, the slaughterhouse
Eat my brain
Death games to the crackpot beat
We are the Silent vandals of the system
Bastard children of confused, cross fucked cultures
Fed with illusions purity
Spit that shit out and embrace the dirt
We are one…
Brothers and sisters
Today I’m going to talk about something I have spoken about before. Simply because it’s just plain ridiculous now and there really is a lot to say about it. I’m talking of course about Marijuana, that ever sacred, miraculous king of plants. It has many names the world over, but it doesn’t matter what you call it. It’s illegal in most parts of the world, with the level of punishment associated with its possession and use varying by country.
In Sri Lanka, this little piece of paradise, Marijuana is considered as a threat by the government and mere possession of Marijuana can get you locked up, taken to court and fined, and depending on how much you’re caught with (and sometimes the mood of the presiding judge) it can land you prison for years. There are so much lies associated with it that it’s treated with extreme paranoia by lots of people and a stoner is usually no different to a heroine addict.
These unjust laws have existed in this nation for a long time. And people are scared to do something about it. Whenever a person suggests trying to do something about it (eg: start an awareness campaign for it in the very least), the usual response that person will get will be one of ridicule. They will say things like “don’t be an idiot machang, this is Sri Lanka. That shit doesn’t work here” and “they’ll just haul your ass to jail or just kill you”.
The person I’m going to talk about now serves as a slap in the face for all these people. When I heard about this man I was ecstatic. When I saw him talking, what I felt couldn’t be explained in words. His name is Dosthora Mudalihamy Warnasuriya and he is a master of the Sri Lankan medicine system which dates back thousands of years. He explains that cannabis was created by the cosmic masters who fashioned the universe out of energy. He talks about how the herbal formulas created by the Buddha himself consist of cannabis, and he talks about how over 10,000 formulas in traditional Sri Lankan medicine contains a portion of cannabis and he talks about how the five elements, the five bodily compositions that fashion the human being resides in this plant (the body, is called Panchaskanda in Sinhalese, which means made of five elements). Most importantly, he talks about how crucial it is for this plant to be available in abundance for the well being of everyone in the world and talks about the history of this plant in Sri Lanka which goes back thousands of years (as long as the Sri Lankan medicine system has existed).
And guess what…There’s a 27 minute video of him talking about it. Yeah that’s right. If you’re a stoner you need to watch this…If you’re not a stoner you need to watch this. Watch it here. Go to the bottom of the post and you’ll find the video. Trust me you’ll be blown away after watching it.
If for some reason you’re doubtful of this mans credibility check out his blog and more importantly check out his Letter to the president of Sri Lanka and check out who has signed it too while you’re at it.
This is not an issue that can be taken lying down. It’s ridiculous that a drunk driver, who poses a danger to himself and the people around him is considered a minor offence that gets you a ticket whereas a person (with no previous crimes) who is busted with even a branch of Marijuana has a criminal record created for him, which will affect him for his entire life. Space in prisons are being wasted on innocent Marijuana users while there are thousands of truly dangerous people out there. Something is seriously wrong here don’t you think?
The simple truth to this whole scenario is that they’re scared. They’re scared because they know that this plant opens minds and unites people. They don’t want that, they don’t want people to think about these things. So they do everything in their power to spread the lies and harass Marijuana users. They don’t want revolution…yeah you read right…revolution.
Lot’s of people will laugh at this post and claim that sitting around smoking weed and talking and celebrating is not revolution but rather a bunch of ‘stupid potheads’ sitting around and wasting time. If someone ever tells you that, inhale deep that sacred smoke and blow it in their face my friends. At any given point in time, someone somewhere in the world is lighting up some herb, its union…if that’s not revolution I don’t know what revolution is. Every time you light up the sacred herb its revolution, every puff you take is a statement against an unjust law that prosecutes good people. More importantly, you are generating vibrations of peace, love and unity to the universe. Every single one of you is an embodiment of revolution. Don’t let anyone ever tell you that you’re wrong for thinking this. As a Sri Lankan, it’s not just your right, it’s a part of your heritage.
Let’s fight for the truth. I’m not asking you to go out on the streets and protest. All you have to do is never be ashamed to be a stoner, always try to correct misconceptions and spread awareness…just don’t be afraid to speak out. Treat it like it’s already legal as much as you can. Very simply, just smoke that love and don’t be afraid or ashamed. You’re not doing anything wrong, stop giving that thought any energy.
“Though it is illegal, it has been legalized by the people who are using it” –Dosthora Mudalihamy Warnasuriya-
“It’s not the counter culture anymore, it is the culture” –Thomas Chong-
Truer words I’ve never heard
To my stoner brothers and sisters of Sri Lanka and the rest of the world…we are the union…Lets keep the revolution alive, lets keep spreading the vibe, lets keep GETTING HIGH…
Peace and Love to you all
