“The religious experience: its production and interpretation”. 
Psychedelic Rev.. 1964;1:324-346.
Three years ago, on a sunny afternoon in the garden of a Cuernavaca villa, I ate seven of the so-called "sacred mushrooms" which had been given to me by a scientist from the University of Mexico. During the next five hours, I was whirled through an experience which could be described in may extravagant metaphors but which was above all and without question the deepest religious experience of my life. Statements about personal reactions, however passionate, are always relative to the speaker's history and may have little general significance. Next come the questions "Why" and "So what?"
