Aditi

 


Aditi, is called¬†the free one, because in Sanskrit her name means “boundless,” and is considered an archaic¬†Mother Goddess, depicted in Hindu,¬†Vedic¬†literature. She represents unlimited space and consciousness, hence infinity or eternity.¬†According to the¬†Rg Veda¬†Aditi is said to be the wife of¬†Kasyapa¬†or of¬†Brahma, and the mother of the¬†Aditya, under whose constraint the universe is made possible; and she also personifies death because she consumes everything. Aditi, therefore, represents a caution already present in the Vedas about contributing the origin of the universe to a personal agent, such as a god. No other consort is mentioned in literature. She is also considered to be the mother of¬†Hari, and other legends have her the mother of¬†Indra. No human physical features of her are drawn, though she is sometimes identified in the guise of a cow. Aditi was believed to be a guardian goddess of prosperity and could free her devotees of problems and clear away obstacles. She does not appear in later Hindu traditions.¬†A.G.H.
