The spiritual Mother Goddess, who plays a fundamental role in a person’s spiritual journey,1 is found referenced in ancient sacred texts, myths, art and sculptures throughout the world, and many hymns and mantras have been written about her through the ages.
For example, the Dakshine Kali Beej Mantra is a mantra dedicated to the Hindu goddess Kali, who is a representation of the spiritual goddess/mother within. The Mantra of Goddess Durga is another mantra that is related to the spiritual goddess.
She is traditionally represented as both a loving and nurturing mother who guides and teaches, and a powerful warrior goddess who has the ability to destroy “inner darkness” / eliminate the egos within. She is also frequently portrayed as Mother Earth.
Mentions of her are also found today in some modern music, and a new section on the site has been created which showcases the songs that are dedicated to the Spiritual Mother.
A newly added song in that section is “Ancient Mother” by Robert Gass & On Wings Of Song, which celebrates the universality of the Spiritual Mother.
The Spiritual Mother has been known by different names throughout time depending on the culture. For example, as Kali and Durga in Hinduism, Isis and Sekhmet in Egypt, Hecate in Greece, the Virgin Mary in Christianity, Inanna in ancient Sumer, and many others. Many of these names are incorporated into this song’s lyrics as descriptive of the “ancient mother.”
