Gula is the mother of healing of the body, mind, and the soul. She rules over all herbs and incantations used for health-related issues. She is often called the great physician and accordingly plays a prominent role in incantation rituals intended to relieve those who are suffering from disease. She was the life-giver who cured disease with the touch of Her hand and led the dead to a new life. She is also a Goddess of Retribution and has the power to inflict disease as well as to heal.
HER COLOR WAS BLUE. HER SACRED ANIMAL WAS THE DOG; IN FACT, A LARGE NUMBER OF SMALL VOTIVE FIGURES OF DOGS DEDICATED TO THE GODDESS BY HER DEVOTEES HAVE BEEN FOUND IN EXCAVATIONS AT THE ISIN SANCTUARY OF GULA. IT SEEMS THAT DOGS WERE ALLOWED TO WANDER FREELY WITHIN THE SANCTUARY AND PLAYED A KEY ROLE IN THE HEALING RITUAL.
