Abstract

HOM is a plant from which procures a JUICE and its widest usage is in the religious CEREMONIES. The plant is called Saoma in India, and was called Haoma in ancient Iran, the similarities of the names and usages of two plants, leads us to one INDO-IRANIAN root for both of them. Because of its importance and being numinous, many properties have been attributed to the plant, and even it has been personalized as a GOD. This plant and its JUICE were important elements in shaping the mentality of primitive Indo-European human beings. It should be noted that similar plant and beverage, which was procured from it, can be seen among primitive people, all around the world.
