Abstract
The occurrence of a plant known as da dhu ra is investigated in the pre-11th century Vajramahabhairava-tantra, an Indian Buddhist tantric text existant in Tibetan translation. Internal evidence from the texts, and linguistic evidence, identifying da dhu ra as Datura metel is given despite current certainty of the New World origin of the genus Datura.
