In Hindu mythology soma corresponds to ambrosia and nectar of the Greeks. It is an intoxicating milk juice squeezed from the soma plant (Asclepias acida), and is drunk by gods as well as men, though the celestial soma is distinguished from the terrestial one. The plant's true home is heaven, and it
was stolen from the
guardian demon by Indra's eagle, just as Zeus' eagle had brought the nectar, and Odin's eagle carried off the mead. Soma is considered as the king of plants, for it gives health, long life and immortality. The preparation of the soma juice was a very sacred ceremony, performed by the Brahman's according to the sacred Scriptures, the Rig Veda.
