Soma – Elixir of Gods Cures, Rejuvenates, Provides Natural Abundance, Prosperity
During the ancient times the use of bio-energy was prevalent. This energy process had a huge impact in the change of Prana, which is a life force which vibrates through man and connects with the cosmos and Soma Maha Homam is one such.
Soma Mama Homam uses the juice of a special herb or the herb itself in the oblation. It is the king of herbs and provides an extra powerful uplift of healing energy to the entire atmosphere of the earth. Soma juice is a favorite of the gods of heaven like Indira, Agni, Vayu and the lunar deity which is moon.
According to Vedic literature, there are seven Soma yagyas and when the ritual is organized on a large scale for the sake of society at large, it’s called Soma Yagya.
Soma homam is a highly spiritual and effective method to reach out to the gods as prescribed in the Vedas. The Soma juice were relished by the celestials for its medical properties, healing energies, nutrition, and disease curing effects. Soma yagya improves the psyche both qualitatively and quantitatively.
Vedic study reveals that our soul is wrapped inside five sheaths or layers called pancha kosha. The atman or the soul is at the centre with a close proximity to the Aanandamaya Kosha where one achieves ceaseless bliss. The other sheaths that form a layer of human existence are Vignanamaya Kosha or intellect sheath, Manomaya Kosha or mind sheath, Pranamaya Kosha or vital air force sheath and finally the outermost layer is called the Annamaya Kosha or food sheath. Though these five layers form the basic outer structures of the soul, there are two others called the Chitta Kosha and Sat Kosha which relate to spiritual wisdom and final state of merging with the infinite consciousness who is Lord Shiva. Scriptures describe that god resides in Sat Kosha and through immense devotion and ritual practices we are able to attain the Divine. One such route is performing the Soma Maha Homam that helps us in the ultimate realization of the almighty.
The principle of Shiva-Shakti is also displayed in the Soma Maha Homa. When Soma combines with Agni in the homa it is absorbed by the sun’s rays and it unites with Agni to form a water embryo which multiples further into the womb of clouds leading to birth of rains. Therefore, Soma Maha Homa paves way for natural abundance.
