A question by Ma Ananda Prem:
"... I became a subject in a Government sponsored experiment to study the effects of LSD. ... I had learned how to use it to awaken the Kundalini and bring meditation. ... In your opinion was the experience genuine Samadhi, as I feel it was?"
Acharya Rajneesh:
"It was not genuine. It was not Samadhi, but a chemical change."
