IN HINDU MYTHOLOGY, "ADITI "WAS THE ANCIENT GODDESS OF THE BOUNDLESS SKY. HER NAME MEANS "FREE FROM BONDS" OR "LIMITLESS". SHE IS THE CONSCIOUSNESS OF ALL LIVING THINGS, THE WOMB OF SPACE AND THE FEMININE FORM OF BRAHMA. ALL OF THE HEAVENLY BODIES ARE BORN FROM HER. SHE WAS REVERED AS THE MOTHER FIGURE WHO GAVE BIRTH TO ALL OF THE MAJOR GODS IN THE VEDAS. SHE IS THE GODDESS OF SPACE AND OF THE PAST, PRESENT, AND FUTURE.

ALTHOUGH SHE IS MENTIONED ALMOST 80 TIMES IN THE VEDA, IT IS DIFFICULT TO GAIN A CLEAR PICTURE OF HER NATURE. IN FACT, THE MOST OUTSTANDING ATTRIBUTE OF "ADITI "IS HER MOTHERHOOD. AS THE "MOTHER" OF THE GODS, SHE IS, THEREFORE, THE MOST IMPORTANT FIGURE IN THE CELESTIAL WORLD. AND, AS THE "MOTHER", IT IS SHE WHO GRANTS WEALTH, SECURITY AND PROSPERITY. "ADITI" IS SOMETIMES ASSOCIATED WITH A COW AND HER MILK AND IS SOMETIMES DEPICTED IN THE GUISE OF A COW. SHE IS ALSO SAID TO POSSESS THE POWERS TO FREE THE ONE WHO PETITIONS HER FOR HELP IN CASE OF SICKNESS AND SUFFERING FROM THE CONSEQUENCES OF SIN AND IS,THEREFORE,CALLED THE SUPPORTER OF ALL CREATURES.

Some say that "Aditi" is always with us even though She cannot be seen, but, should an apocalypse occur, She will make Herself fully visible. It is then that She will gather and wrap all of Her children in Her eternal cloak and protect us for all of eternity.
