DAILY WISDOM

A child is born on that day and at that hour when the celestial rays are in the mathematical harmony with ones individual karma. The horoscope is a challenging portrait, revealing ones unalterable past and probable future results. The message boldly blazoned across the heavens at the moment of birth is not meant to emphasize fate, but to arouse our will to action. - Swami Sri Yukteswar

Indian Alchemy: Soma in the Veda

by S. Kalyanaraman

$36.49 $27.37

Quantity:

The book is an epoch-making work-a paradigm-shift in Vedic studies-which identifies soma as electrum (god-silver metallic compound). Soma is referred to in the Rgveda as the should of the Yajna (atmayajnasya).

The path-breaking identification is based on textual evidence and a penetrating analysis of the Indian alchemical tradition, spanning nearly five millennia. The author is also the discoverer of the integrating role played by the mighty Sarasvati river adored in the Rgveda as the best of mothers, best of rivers and best of goddesses.

Sarasvati and soma are no longer mythology but relevant to present-day children, respectively, as the repository of groundwater sanctuaries in north-west Indian and the metallurgical tradition starting with the Bronze age civilization, c. 3000 BC. Sarasvati and soma are the symbols of the great Indian traditions of devi worship and personification and deification of natural, material phenomena.

The tirthas along the rivers are reminders of the critical nature of water management problems all over Indian and soma as an integral part of the yajna process, is the embodiment of the scientific, technological and materialist temper of ancient India.

About the Author:

Kalyanaraman, is an Indologist and has contributed to the History of Science and Technology in Ancient India (collaborating with Dr. Debiprasad Chattopadhyaya), compiled a multi-lingual comparative dictionary for twenty-five Indian languages.
