Psychedelics Discovered in India’s Most Ancient Spiritual Tradition

India is not typically known for its relationship to psychedelics. But around 3500 years ago we find an anomaly in India’s most ancient text, a mysterious word called Soma. Some have attributed this to a psychedelic plant, some to a non-hallucinogenic plant, while others believe it’s something metaphorical that makes no sense to us in the modern day. In this episode of The Sacred Word, I will explore the mystery of Soma discovered in India’s most ancient text, the Rig Veda. I will dissect the candidates for Soma and try to end the age-old debate as to whether Soma is a psychedelic or not.
