Goddess Prayers and Chants
By Rev. Laurie Sue Brockway
Goddess History dates back to the earliest civilizations. It’s well documented that ancient societies worshiped feminine forms of God -- typically as mother, earth, and nature, or as deities who personified feminine attributes. Theologians, archeologists, historians and experts in religious mythology have told of literally thousands of Goddesses from cultures around the world.
Worship of the Divine Mother permeated ancient societies. Her temples abounded. Her presence was expressed in the images, and stories that were passed along through many generations. Many of the world’s cultures continue to worship, honor and pray to female deities. The Hindu, Buddhist, Tibetan, Native American, South American and African cultures are among those that always have, and continue to, commune with the Divine Feminine.
The oldest religions, such as Hinduism and Buddhism, still offer ancient prayers and chants to the Goddess. Over time, new ones have been created to honor Goddess spirituality. We share a collection of old and new prayers and chants to the Goddess.
