MISCELLANEOUS NOTES

[Lucifer, Vol. VII, No. 41, January, 1891, p. 392]

[Max Müller is mentioned as saying that Siva was drinking Bhang. To this H.P.B. remarks:]

Bhang is exoterically a strong intoxicant; but in esoteric symbology it stands for one of the siddhis or occult powers. But a Western Sanskritist may be well pardoned for being ignorant of the difference.
