Chapter 9 - The Mother
The Goddess Aditit is regarded by the Vedic seers as the great womb into which the entire universe has entered...She holds Agni, god of fire and creator-god, in her womb like a mother...She is a benevolent and a gentle goddess. Adidit gives the child happiness, like a mother...In her bountiful nature Aditit is identified with the cow, for the milk stored in the cosmic cow pours down as our daily nourishment, never exhausted, and circulating as life-substance in all that exists. The Vedic Aditit is already established as the female generative force and is regarded almost as the Mother-goddess in the Vedic pantheon.
The ancient image of vegetation emerging from the body of the goddess reappears in 400 AD in the Devi-Mahatmya where the Devi in her Sakambhari aspect is said to nourish her needy people with vegetation produced from her own body. Her body is the earth, source of plant-life and all that lives.
Kali: the Feminine Force by Ajit Mookerjee
The Valley Spirit never dies.
It is named the Mysterious Female.
And the Doorway of the Mysterious Female
Is the base from which Heaven and Earth sprang.
It is there within us all the while;
Draw upon it as you will, it never runs dry.
