Shaivism (Shaiva philosophy)

Source: Brill: Śaivism and the Tantric Traditions

Surāpaṇa (सुरापण) (Cf. Surāpa) refers to a “pub” (where spirituous liquors are consumed), according to the Mattavilāsaprahasana.—Accordingly, as the Kāpālika cries out: “My darling, look. This pub (surāpa) resembles the Vedic sacrificial ground. For its signpost resembles the sacrificial pillar; in this case alcohol is the Soma, drunkards are the sacrificial priests, the wine glasses are the special cups for drinking Soma, the roasted meat and other appetizers are the fire oblations, the drunken babblings are the sacrificial formulae, the songs are the Sāman-hymns, the pitchers are the sacrificial ladles, thirst is the fire and the owner of the pub (surāpaṇa-adhipati) is the patron of the sacrifice (yajamāna)”.
