James Kalomiris con One Thousand Names of Soma: The Building Blocks for the Natural Order (Rta) and the Meaning of Divine Ecstasy: Volume 2 (The Secret History of the Rig Veda,)
Reseña del editor This book is part of a series presenting an original, idiosyncratic look at the Rg Veda, one the oldest writing known to humanity. The Rig Veda may be seen as mythology, history, or just simple story-telling. But there is a secret meaning. The precise meaning of the Vedas will perhaps be forever beyond the grasp of the humans and worshipers alike. Yet, somewhere deeply embedded in the rcs of the Veda, those secrets are there waiting to be uncovered and with a proper interpretation are ready to be unlocked. Unlocking those secrets is the purpose of this book. This book examines the nature of Soma. Soma is mercurial. Soma is many things. It is a deity, it is a divine force, it is a religious ceremony, it is an astronomical body, it is a plant, it is a mental state, it is an experience of religious being, it is a substance obtained during the sacrifice and brewed like beer. It is indeed all these. … Or Soma may be nothing at all. This book seeks explain what Soma is in the Vedas and describe its nature. It will describe Soma in the best way possible --- by choosing one thousand epithets form the Vedas. It is hoped that after reading this book you, the reader, will know more about Soma and how it is described in the Vedas.
