Rig Veda, tr. by Ralph T.H. Griffith, [1896] 1 BEAUTIFUL Vāyu, come, for thee these Soma drops have been prepared: Drink of them, hearken to our call. 2 Knowing the days, with Soma juice poured forth, the singers glorify Thee, Vāyu, with their hymns of praise. 3 Vāyu, thy penetrating stream goes forth unto the worshipper, Far-spreading for the Soma draught. 4 These, Indra-Vāyu, have been shed; come for our offered dainties’ sake: The drops are yearning for you both. 5 Well do ye mark libations, ye Vāyu and Indra, rich in spoil! So come ye swiftly hitherward. 6 Vāyu and Indra, come to what the Soma-presser hath prepared: Soon, Heroes, thus I make my prayer. 7 Mitra, of holy strength, I call, and foe-destroying Varuṇa, Who make the oil-fed rite complete. 8 Mitra and Varuṇa, through Law, lovers and cherishers of Law, Have ye obtained your might power 9 Our Sages, Mitra-Varuṇa, wide dominion, strong by birth, Vouchsafe us strength that worketh well.

2 Raymond Huerta = "God of the wind."
3 Enakshi Ganguly = "Often the Soma plant/drink is associated with Indra. The Soma drink is known to bring immortality or God-like powers to those who drink it. This plant is more than likely opium, since Soma means "moon" in Sanskrit and opium was only properly seen in the moonlight! Opium is also found in large quantities in northern India, Burma, Pakistan and Afghanistan. Source: http://zazenlife.com/2012/01/13/soma-the-lost-drink-of-a-god/"
4 Enakshi Ganguly = "The Soma juice is offered to the Gods, to please them. "

7 Raymond Huerta = "Indra and Vāyu are conjointly addressed as Indravāyu. Indra was the favorite national deity of the Aryan Indians in the Vedic Age, and more hymns are dedicated to his honor than to the praise of any other divinity. He is the God who reigns over the intermediate region or atmosphere; he fights against and conquers with his thunderbolt the demons of drought and darkness, and is in general the type of noble heroism. Griffith, Ralph T. H. "Book The First." Hinduism: The Rig Veda. Quality Pbk. Book Club ed. New York: Quality Paperback Book Club, 1992. Print."
8 Raymond Huerta = "Mitra presides over the day as Varuna over the night. Hence, the closest connection exists between these two deities who are more frequently invoked together than Varuna is invoked singly; together they uphold and rule the earth and sky, guard the world, promote religious rites, avenge sin, and are the lords of truth and light. Griffith, Ralph T. H. "Book The First." Hinduism: The Rig Veda. Quality Pbk. Book Club ed. New York: Quality Paperback Book Club, 1992. Print."
