Quoted from the dust jacket flap: "One of the key enigmas of cultural history has been the identity of a plant called SOMA in the ancient Aryan religion.

Many half-hearted guesses have been advanced but none of them has enlisted support from specialists of the Vedic religion. Wasson has now arrested the attention of learned circles by advancing, and documenting, the thesis that SOMA was a mushroom, the fly-agaric, Amanita muscaria, an hallucinogenic mushroom that until recent times has been the center of the shamanic performance among the Uralic and Paleo-Siberian tribesmen of Siberia.

Reviewer: Sarq - - October 20, Subject: fly-agaric questionalbe interpretation I have get to page 46 seem to me that they are based their theory to one mushroom fly-agaric. Fly-agaric is not popular hallucinogen, Vikings were using it and is possible that is ingredient some other solutions. Common mushroom in north Asia is Psilocybe cubensis,shamanic use, russian description is from cubensis and other psilocybes. Cows are eating those too, some species grow at dung fertilized grass field. This can have been big problem when milk is hallucinogenic, same problem than wheat has had Claviceps purpurea, it has made whole village mad. Philocybe is not poisonous and it doesent require vomiting or other processing unlike fly-agaric, what can destroy your inner organs.
