Botanical Ecstasies: Psychoactive Plant Formulas in India and Beyond
23cm x 15cm. [vi], 69 pages. Illustrated wrappers.
“Soma and hoama are among the earliest recorded plants that produce religious ecstasy. Mentioned in the sacred texts of the Brahmans, the Vedas, and in the Zoroastrian Avesta respectively, the mystery of their identity has long been contested. In Botanical Ecstasies: Psychoactive Plant Formulas in India and Beyond, Dr Matthew Clark proposes that soma/hoama is an ayahuasca-like plant complex made from many different species.” (publisher’s blurb)
