I got to know something related to DMT. It is a psychoactive chemical compound found in some plants. Large number of people believe it has divine powers, that’s why it lets people enter other dimensions (I don’t know what dimensions, maybe Astral Plane). I read somewhere that during the actual death experience, DMT is released in the brain too (near penial gland), so they get the similar experiences but don’t gain consciousness of this physical body again, and are dead. There are meditation techniques like the Surat Shabd Yoga, in which we have to put our attention at the centre of our head, where there is penial gland. I was guessing maybe we’re able to trigger the release of DMT by putting our attention there and have spiritual experiences. So is there any connection between DMT and spirituality? Note: I don’t support consumption of any of these psychoactive drugs.
http://www.gurukhoj.com/eBooks/SBNS eBook 06 Guide to SC.pdf Quotations from the Book: Ego is a big hindrance that does not allow our spiritual level to rise high. A person on the path of Spirituality falls when ‘I’ or ‘my’ comes into him. Guru Sahib Ji repeatedly cautions a Sikh to escape from this danger and also emphasises on the need to efface this ego. According to Bhai Gurdass Ji, a person only qualifies to be called a Gursikh if he lives his life above the pitfall of ego. The mind has become like a wild boar which repeatedly goes to other people’s farmland. Even if you try to stop it , it still continues to wander. The mind has cultivated a similar habit; it does not stay at its center and wanders around aimlessly. Wise farmers solve the problem of the wild boar by tying a wooden restraint on its neck and because of this, the wild boar is unable to poke its mouth here and there. In this same way, Sadh Sangat teaches us to put the restraint of Guru Sahib Ji’s Shabad to the mind. Bowing in reverence, offering of flowers, fruits etc - these are external gifts and presents and these are just the beginning rituals and practises. However, the real gift is to focus within ourselves. This understanding comes only after much spiritual practise. Real spiritual consciousness (and understanding) comes only when the mind starts to internally mark spiritual attendance in Guru Sahib Ji’s Court. It is only then that the veil of ego will be broken. To embrace Guru Maharaj Ji’s Path of Salvation, it is not conditional that a person must be without sin from the time of birth. This Path gives equal opportunity to the sinner as well as to the virtuous. In fact, it is even possible that the realisation of his sins may make a sinner humble and thus achieve the Path of Salvation quickly. On the other hand, a person of good virtues may remain entrapped in his ego and thus remain deprived of Salvation.
