Historian and ordained Buddhist lama Mike Crowley joins us on ATTMind Radio this week to talk about his new book, The Secret Drugs Of Buddhism. We explore the historical origins of buddhism and discuss the fabled Soma and Amrita as a concoction of psychedelics plants similar to that of Ayahuasca. We talk about the complex of connections between psychedelics in ancient civilizations and various scriptures of ancient Asianic traditions, contact of intelligent entities in the psychedelics realms, the connections between modern drug culture and evolution of buddhism.

Mike is a fantastic wealth of information and set me straight on a couple ideas I have been considering for a long while. This is a great podcast with lots of cool history. He is also funding the release of his book via Kickstarter, which ends on Feb 6, 2016. Don’t miss your opportunity to help this book reach the world.
