The Divine Mother is one of the most ancient and universal
symbols through which human beings have related to the Sacred.
Her form varies in different traditions, but She is always
present, even when hidden or repressed. She may be as abstract
as yin, the Feminine Principle, or as concrete as Mother
Kali. She is the Changing Woman of the Navaho, and She is
the Blessed Virgin. She is called Tara by some and Sophia
by others. She is Gaia, the living planet on which we live,
and She is the Shekhinah. In this ongoing series, various
poems, praises, prayers and songs from both ancient and
modern sources remind and inspire us about this most relevant
of bridges to the Divine.
