Haoma research references
Written on 04/30/12 at 13:20:38 MST by Dan
This area is intended to be a place for researchers to share references to the various aspects and identifying features of the plant, deity, sacrament, that is referred to as Haoma in Zoroastrianism. Haoma is considered by scholars to be the same as the Hindu Soma and the Christian Tree of Life.

If "Haoma" is referring to some derivative of the "hemp" or "cannabis"
plant then I believe the following to be very relevant. My point in
sharing this information is not to represent any particular
"religion". Rather it is to share truth regarding the subject matter.

My purpose in doing so is to bring more unity, harmony and oneness
where there perhaps may have been some sense of preference, partiality
or division. I attempt to do that by sharing relevant knowledge on the
subject matter where there may have been a lack of such knowledge. Or
if these facts are known then I merely want to state them here. Please
receive this in the spirit of love and unity in which it is given.

There even seems to be archealogicial evidence that the ancient Jews
and Essenes (including Jesus) may have used an “anointing oil” and  
“incense” that was at least partially made from hemp oil or cannabis
resin. Look at
http://www.freeanointing.org/cannabis_in_the_holy_oil.htm
and http://www.njweedman.com/kanehbosm.html as well as
http://www.efn.org/~iahu/truth.html (read this page and then click on
the marijuana conspiracy link and read that page. And don't forget to
click on the link about the US Constitution for a real eye opener!)

The Anointed Ones: Secrets of the Messiah Medicine is a must read.
This book by Dr. Michael Albert-Puleo is a result of 37 years of
study. Also you definitely should read Marijuana And The Bible by Jeff
Brown and The Ethiopia Zion Coptic Church.

Again, I don't necessarily agree with EVERYTHING on these websites of
course or these books. However, I do agree with some of the basic
truths, ideas and concepts that put forth.

Below I also have some interesting information from:
The Naming Newsletter
Suffix
Suffixes are a growth engine for the English language.
-able turns teach into the word teachable.
-age turns post into postage.
-al turns refuse into refusal.

And suffixes work wonderfully in naming.
-ian DuPont started with "coriaceous," a little-known word for strong,
truncated it to "cor" and added the suffix -ian ("having qualities
of") and came up with Corian.
http://www.namingnewsletter.com/article.asp?id=83

Thus it should be readily apparent that the word Christ(ian) means
“having qualities of” Christ.
      Christ carries the meaning of “Anointed”.
Christ is the English translation of the Greek word Χριστός
(Christós), which literally means The Anointed One. The word was
originally used to translate the Hebrew word מָשִׁיחַ (Mašía), that is
Messiah.
The word is often misunderstood to be the surname of Jesus due to the
numerous mentions of Jesus Christ in the Christian Bible. The word is
in fact a title, hence its common reciprocal use Christ Jesus, meaning
The Anointed One, Jesus. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christ
The "anointed" one more closely means 'high priest', 'leader', or even
'ruler'. It can also mean 'savior' or deliver'. King Cyrus was
prophetically referred as an 'annointed' of the Lord or 'messiah' in
Isaiah because he was going to liberate the Jews from Babylonian
captivity, from slavery and from oppression. (Isaiah 45:1)
The Greek term is cognate with Chrism, meaning perfumed oil; in fact
Christos in classical Greek usage could mean covered in oil, and is
thus a literal and accurate translation of Messiah (just as Saul the
King was oiled up when he was proclaimed king).
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christ#Full_etymology

To anoint is to grease with perfumed oil, animal fat, or melted
butter, a process employed ritually by many religions and races.
People and things are anointed to symbolize the introduction of a
sacramental or divine influence, a holy emanation, spirit or power. It
can also be seen as a “magical” mode of ridding persons and things of
dangerous influences and diseases, especially of the demons (Persian
drug, Greek κηρες, Armenian dev) which are believed to be or cause
those diseases.

Unction is another term for anointing. The oil may be called chrism.
The word is known in English since c.1303, deriving from Old French
enoint "smeared on," pp. of enoindre "smear on," itself from Latin
inunguere, from in- "on" + unguere "to smear."

The holy anointing oil described in Exodus 30:22-25 was created from
500 shekels (about 6 kg) of myrrh, half as much (about 3 kg) of
fragrant cinnamon, 250 shekels (about 3 kg) of fragrant cane (kanabos,
variously translated as calamus or cannabis), 500 shekels (about 6kg)
of cassia, and a hin (about 4 L) of olive oil.

2. According to some scholars, cannabis was an ingredient of holy
anointing oil mentioned in various sacred Hebrew texts. The herb of
interest is most commonly known as kanah-bosim (קְנֵה-בֹשֶׂם) (the singular
form of which would be kanah-bos) which is mentioned several times in
the Old Testament as a bartering material, incense, and an ingredient
in holy anointing oil used by the high priest of the temple. The
Septuagint translates kaneh-bosm as calamus, and this translation has
been propagated unchanged to most later translations of the old
testament. However, Polish anthropologist Sula Benet published
etymological arguments that the Aramaic word for hemp can be read as
kannabos and appears to be a cognate to the modern word 'cannabis',
with the root kan meaning reed or hemp and bosm meaning fragrant. Both
cannabis and calamus are fragrant, reed like plants containing
psychotropic compounds.

Elders of the modern religious movement known as the Ethiopian Zion
Coptic Church consider cannabis to be the eucharist, claiming it as an
oral tradition from Ethiopia dating back to the time of Christ.
Like the Rastafari, some modern Gnostic Christian sects have asserted
that cannabis is the Tree of Life.

Other organized religions founded in the past century that treat
cannabis as a sacrament are the THC Ministry, the Way of Infinite
Harmony, Cantheism, the Cannabis Assembly, and the Church of
Cognizance.

Some ancient groups, such as the Gnostics, believed that everyone
could become a Christ. (or 'annointed') A "Christed" one. 1 John 2:26-
27.

The gnostics generally believed not in a Jesus who was a Divine Person
with a human nature, but in a spiritual Christ who dwelt in (the body
known as) Jesus. Through the spiritual path of gnosticism, followers
of these schools believed that they could experience the same
(spiritual saving) knowledge, or gnosis.

For more details about hemp, cannabis or marijuana being the “tree of
life” and a main ingredient in Jewish Holy Incense and Holy Annointing
Oil as well as the ingredient for “baptism” by early Gnostic
Christians go to the following website.
