PLEASE READ THE ATTRIBUTES THE HINDU SEERS GIVE TO SOMA PLANT AND THE BENEFITS THEY TALK ABOUT IN THER MANTARS IN THE RIGVEDA. THEN YOU CAN EASILY DECIDE WHAT IT IS.

IT IS A SHAME THAT WE DON’T HAVE IT TODAY.  SOME HALF BAKED OR FULLY BAKED IDIOTS IDENTIFIED WITH X PLANT OR Y PLANT. HAD THEY REALLY KNOW THE PLANT THEY WOULD HAVE MADE BILLIONS OF DOLLLRS EVERY DAY BY CANNING AND SELLING IT.

I EVEN HAVE A SUSPICION THAT IT IS EQUAL TO AMRITA BECAUSE EAGLE-AMRITA STORY IN LAATER PURANAS IS IN THE RIG VEDA AS FALCON BRINGING IT FROM THE SKY OR MOUNTAIN.

FALACON, EAGLE AND HAWK ARE ASSOCIATED WITH THE SOMA PLANT IN 20 TO 30 MANTRAS.

All he quoted Mantras are from the ninth mandala of the Rig Veda. This Mandala has 114 hymns with 1108 Mantras.

Here is what the seers say about the Soma Juice:– RV.9-97

You are a mighty SAGE

You are watchful

You are far seeing

You are wearing battle ready raiment.

Let us sing praises to gods loudly and send soma for mighty riches

He has come for our great bliss

You are nobler than the noblest

A prince among us

You preserve us evermore with blessings

Come here with the gods for bounty

You are roaring like a BOAR

The SWANS brought their restless spirit to our dwellings

Friends come and sing in concert praising Soma

Soma appears silvery in night and golden in day light.

Soma has sharp horns and brings forth abundance

Soma bathed in milk excites Indra and make him joyful; Indra slays the demons.

As soma is purified, he pours out treasurers

Soma is GOD and he sprinkles on other gods

Soma / Indu has wearing qualities by seasons

Soma , the RED BULL bellowing to the cattle advances, causing the heaven and earth to roar and thunder

Soma is sweet, meath rich plant

You send us good paths ; show us good path

Pour on us rain from the sky

Let it be healthy

Send us breeze

You are a friend of human beings

Unties me from the knots of sin.

Flow on with thousand streams and give us strength to conquer heroes

Soma flows like unyoked horses

May soma grant us riches sought with longing

Soma gives riches to generous people

Soma is very wise

He who beholds man kind

King supreme of deities and mortals

Treasure lord of riches

Soma is like a speedy HORSE

Give us ample food thousandfold

After you are purified, find out riches

Give us children who will be heroes and give us houses.

Rich in all boons, the best of cheerers

Make heaven and earth well established

You are swifter than thought

You are a LION

Sprung from the gods

You are forerunner of abundant riches

A wise king will not treat his friend unkindly

Like a son following his father’s wishes, grant to this family success and safety.

I have covered only 30 mantras out of 58 in this one hymn (RV 9-97).
