The film shows two Brahmin brothers preparing the hashish drink bhang in the ritually fixed way. Leaves of Indian hemp (Cannabis), dried in the open air, are pounded in a stone mortar, with an admixture of water and seasonings, into a thick paste. Sugar is added and the paste is dissolved in water. The finished drink is worshipped with forms of prayer (mantra) and hand gestures (mudra). A part of the drink is given as an offering to a group of initiated Brahman boys. In an appendix the mudras are presented once more in detail.
