The whole Mandala 9 of Rig-Veda is devoted to the Soma. My question set is as follows.
- What is Soma? What is its importance?
- Are there both interior as well as exterior somas? I've read about interior somas which could be formed via yoga at ajna chakra, though I don't know of any scriptural references of interior somas.
- Do we still have methods to prepare external somas? (It's evident from sculptures found in Indus Valley civilization that (external) Somas could be prepared)
