Indra`s visible appearence:
according to RV 10,95,8 Indra is hári-keśa and hári-śmaśāru, of “yellow-red (golden) hair” and “yellow-red (golden) beard”.
hári is also used of the fire, the sun, of lightening and of Indras horses - and of the Soma plant.
to Falk, however, hári
to green” (Falk, p.85, Soma I and II, BSOAS, Vol. 52, No.
1,1989, pp. 77-90 ),
because this - he thinks - makes that colourful epitheton fit to the “bluish green” (Falk, p.85) colour of the ephedra plant. That would make
first punk of history.
