I know, my behaviour is as that of a little girl. When I hear this word I begin to laugh. Amaterasu. It sounds like mattress for me.
One girl in Facebook sent me a "gift" yesterday: Amaterasu. And there were different Goddesses to chose in the program. With my great surprise I read that Amaterasu is not a mattress. She is a Goddess, "(that which) illuminates Heaven", a sun goddess. My God, how dark is my head! What is interesting, she was born from the eye of her father after he visited Hades.
I don't understand that Antique People, why they had these mad ideas? Where they come from? I mean that "anormal" births.
To lern the thing, I have to add that there ar other Goddesses.
She was worshipped as the ideal mother and wife, patron of nature and magic; (Wikipedia)
Tara, a female Buddha, She is the "mother of liberation", and represents the virtues of success in work and achievements.(Wikipdia)
Laksmi, is the Hindu goddess of wealth and prosperity.Lakshmi is thus goddess of the means to achieving objectives, including prosperity in the lives of mankind.(Wikipedia)
