Definitions for "Soma "
(Skt) Hindu male lunar deity; also a "beverage'' from a sacred plant which can induce spiritual vision.
A drink used in Vedic ritual; the drink of the gods.
As a drink, Soma is the ambrosia of the gods. It was due to this influence that they could rise above all obstacles to achieve their goals. Indra was a great drinker of the substance; before his confrontation with Vritra, he drank rivers of it to gain the strength needed to overcome the fearsome dragon. Agni also consumed it in large amounts. Soma was what gave the Vedic gods their immortality. It was also a drink for mortals, a golden-hued nectar which was derived from the Soma plant, which may be a species known as ephedra vulgaris to botanists. This drink brought hallucinations and ecstasy to those who consumed it. It helped warriors to overcome their fears in battle, and it helped poets to become inspired to create. Soma was a bridge between the mortal world and that of the gods. This drink is the same as Haoma in Persian mythology. ( Enclycopedia Mythica)

Soma is a fictional, happiness-inducing drug in Aldous Huxley's novel Brave New World (1932). In the novel, soma is an "opium of the masses" that replaces religion and alcohol in a peaceful, but morally controversial, high-tech society far in the future. Soma, a narcotic tranquilizer in tablet form, is regularly taken by all members of society in order to produce feelings of euphoric happiness.

"Soma" is a track on the album Siamese Dream by The Smashing Pumpkins. One of the few songs on Siamese Dream co-written with James Iha, it remains a fan favorite, though it was not released as a single. The song starts and ends very quietly, building to a powerful crescendo featuring a rather chaotic and virtuoso guitar solo.
