Hymn to Ayopechcatl

Hymn to Ayopechcatl, Goddess of Childbirth
Truly in whatever house there is a lying-in,
Ayopechcatl takes charge of the child.
Truly in whatever house there is a lying-in,
Ayopechcatl takes charge of the child,
there where it is weeping in the house.
Come along and cry out, cry out, cry out,
you newcomer,
come along and cry out.
Come along and cry out, cry out, cry out,
you little jewel,
cry out.

News: Symbols of Ishtar found on Tablet in Turkey

Amid excavations at four different ancient sites in the Central Anatolian province of Yozgat, a cuneiform tablet has been unearthed in the Uşaklı Mound at the Büyük Taşlık village.

Thought to date back to around 2,000 B.C., the cuneiform tablet in the Sorgun district of Yozgat shows symbols of Ishtar, known as the Hittite goddess of love, war, fertility and sexuality, more clearly than those on any other unearthed tablets.

Triple Hekate

"Asteria of happy name, whom Perses once led to his great house to be called his dear wife. And she conceived and bare Hekate whom Zeus the son of Kronos honoured above all. He gave her splendid gifts, to have a share of the Earth and the unfruitful Sea. She received honour also in starry Heaven, and is honoured exceedingly by the deathless gods. For to this day, whenever any one of men on earth offers rich sacrifices and prays for favour according to custom, he calls upon Hekate. Great honour comes full easily to him whose prayers the goddess receives favourably, and she bestows wealth upon him; for the power surely is with her. For as many as were born of Gaia and Ouranos amongst all these she has her due portion. The son of Kronos did her no wrong nor took anything away of all that was her portion among the former Titan gods: but she holds, as the division was at the first from the beginning, privilege both in Earth, and in Heaven, and in Sea. Also, because she is an only child, the Goddess receives not less honour, but much more still, for Zeus honours her."
Hesiod, Theogony

Hymn to Sarasvati

"May the Goddess of Speech enable us
to attain all possible eloquence;
She who wears on her locks a young moon,
who shines with exquisite luster,
who sits reclined on a white lotus,
and from the crimson cusp of whose hands
pour radiance on the implements of writing,
and books produced by her favor."
(From the Sarada Tilaka)
