The song “From the Goddess” by Robert Gass and On Wings of Song (from the album From The Goddess / O Great Spirit) is a song dedicated to the Mother Goddess.
The Mother Goddess, referenced in many spiritual traditions of the sun around the world, plays a fundamental role in a person’s spiritual journey.1 Traditionally she is associated with creation and is seen as a nurturer and guide, protectress and warrior / destroyer, and as Mother Earth.
This gentle song incorporates some of these themes and names of the Mother Goddess from ancient traditions, and starts out with the lyrics:
“We all come from the Goddess
And to her we shall return”
These verses touch upon what has been written about the Spiritual Mother in the ancient Hindu sacred text Devi Mahatmyam:
By you this universe is born,
By you this universe is created,
By you it is protected oh Devi
And you always consume it at the end.
Oh you who are of the form of the whole world,
at the time of creation
You are the form of the creative force,
at the time of the sustentation
You are the form of the protective power,
And at the time of dissolution of the world,
You are the form of the destructive power
You are the resort of all!
This entire world is composed of an in infinitesimal portion of Yourself!
– Devi Mahatmyam. (Translated by Swami Jagadiswarananda)2
