holy days

    Nativity of Inanna: Birth of Inanna celebrated on January 2nd.


    Inanna of Fertility — The Queen of Heaven and Earth. The flowering of Sumeria, its temples, ordered cities, irrigated fields, birth-place of cuneiform writing and codes of law, and mastery of terracotta arts, all offer tribute to this earliest named Great Goddess. Worshipped as early as 7000 BCE., Inanna was still widely revered after patriarchal incursions into the Euphrates plain. She descended from heaven to bring prosperity to Her people, then descended into the Realm of Death in a quest for wisdom. Returning, she condemned her lover and son Dumuzi to replace her there in punishment for his arrogance; their annual sexual union was viewed as the source of fecundity and plenty. Here, bejeweled and serene, she offers Her chalice-shaped body in sacred marriage to Dumuzi. —picture and text © 1996 JBL Statues (now called Sacred Source), original web page and text created by Tom Laudeman

    Inanna of Power — Goddess of Battle. Just as she images fertility, the Great Goddess also serves as archetype of natural extremes: monsoon-like storms, great heat, earthquakes. Ancient clay inscriptions depict her raining down fire…, mounted on a beast…, devastatrix of the lands. Her chthonic powers become explanatory of earth-scourging catastrophes, and these aspects still live in the forms of Kali, and Durga. For Sumerians, battle was known as the dance of Inanna. She stands Amazon-like, rooted and erect, garbed as Warrior Queen, gesturing confidently with her lance of power. The image comes from a cylinder seal. —picture and text © 1996 JBL Statues (now called Sacred Source), original web page and text created by Tom Laudeman
