The Goddess of Growing
|Maramadyn, the goddess of growing
is probably one of the most important goddesses of them all.
My fellow Sumerians and I pray to
her before we go to sleep. We pray to her because we want our crops
to grow without dying.
Maramadyn helps all things grow.
Just to name a few things she helps us grow . . . crops, bones,
children, grass, flowers, trees, sheep, goats, hair, and
anything else you can think of. Her tears provide water to help
amazing goddess only has one main characteristic, generosity.
|She could be extremely
generous by growing our crops. However, she was only generous under
one circumstance, that we acknowledge her by praying and asking
politely for growth. She enjoys watching people working on their
crops and working together. The people who achieve those goals are
the ones who get their wishes.
As a Sumerian, I am very, very
lucky to have such an amazing goddess.
