Temazcalteci Aztec Goddess Of Cleanliness Image
"TEMAZCALTECI" IS AN AZTEC GODDESS; HER NAME MEANS "GRANDMOTHER OF THE SWEET BATH". SHE IS THE AZTEC GODDESS OF CLEANLINESS WHO KEEPS DEMON SPIRITS AWAY FROM BATHERS. SHE WAS THE PATRONESS OF HEALERS, MIDWIVES, SOOTHSAYERS, SORCERERS, AND WITCHES WHO TEACHES US HOW TO USE MEDICINAL HERBS IN ORDER TO MAINTAIN OUR HEALTH OR TO BANISH ILLNESS AS SUMMER TURNS INTO AUTUMN. SHE WAS WORSHIPPED BY THOSE WHO HAD BATHS IN THEIR HOMES AND VENERATED BY DOCTORS.

IN THE AZTEC TRADITION THERE IS A "SONG" TITLED "TETEO INNAN", "TEMAZCALTECI OUR GRANDMOTHER, THE GRANDMOTHER SWEAT LODGE". THE "SONG" SPEAKS TO "OUR GRANDMOTHER"AS THE "HEART OF THE EARTH", AND THE "TREE OF LIFE "WHOSE FLOWERS BLOOM IN THE FOUR COLORS THAT REPRESENT THE FOUR DIRECTIONS OF THE UNIVERSE.

HER FOLLOWERS MADE THIS GODDESS A FEAST EVERY YEAR, BUYING A WOMAN FOR A SACRIFICE AND DECORATING HER WITH THE ORNAMENTS PROPER TO THE GODDESS. ALL DURING THE EVENING THEY DANCED WITH AND REGALED HER DELICATELY, PRAYING HER TO EAT AS THEY WOULD A GREAT LADY, AND AMUSING HER IN EVERY WAY THAT SHE MIGHT NOT WEEP NOR BE SAD AT THE PROSPECT OF DEATH.
