No Need of LSD. He Is Already “There”

Funny exchange between Srila Prabhupada and his early disciples about the famous so-called guru from the 60’s.

Harikesa: Once they gave the Maharishi four big pills of LSD.

Prabhupada: Who?

Harikesa: His disciples gave him, Maharishi, four big pills of LSD.

Pusta Krsna: Maharishi?

Harikesa: Yes. And he just stood there and said nothing happened. So everybody said, "This is proof that he's already there."

Prabhupada: Huh?

Harikesa: Because he just stood there and said, "Nothing is happening to me," everybody has figured that he is already there.

Prabhupada: "There" means where?

Harikesa: At the ultimate.

Prabhupada: Hell. [laughter]
