Alcohol
« on: July 29, 2013, 01:02:50 AM »
Did Ramana Maharshi speak of anything about alcohol? I know that Alcohol is not ideal for any types of practices, unless one is part of the Aghora. What about someone who drinks occasionally?

Thanks

Dear Om Namasivaya,

Sri Bhagavan did not speak specifically about alcohol.  However, as an intoxicant, like Ganja, it clouds the mind and
does not help sadhana.

Arunachala Siva.

OM NAMO BAGAVATE SRI RAMANAYA

Dear OmNamahShivaya,
I do not remember Bhagavan ever commented on alcohol consumption and its effect on sadhana. Personally I did not notice any negative effect so long as my sadhana was sporadic. However when sadhana is regular, I could feel very clearly that alcohol dulls the mind and I can't go 'deep' while meditating.
