Water of Life

Waters, you are the ones who bring us the life force.

Help us to find nourishment so that we may look upon great joy.

Let us share in the most delicious sap that you have, as if you were loving mothers.

Let us go straight to the house of the one for whom your waters

Give us life and give us birth.

For our well-being let the goddesses be an aid to us, the waters be

For us to drink. Let them cause well-being and health to flow over us.

Mistresses of all the things that are chosen, rulers over all peoples,

The waters are the ones I beg for a cure.

Soma has told me that within the waters are all cures and Agni who is salutary to all

Waters, yield your cure as an armour for my body, so that I may 

See the sun for a long time.

Waters, carry far away all of this that has gone bad in me, either

What I have done in malicious deceit or whatever lie I have sworn to.

I have sought the waters today; we have joined with their sap. O

Agni full of moisture, come and flood me with splendor.

The Ancient Rig Veda Hymn, Water of Life


  1. And The Waters Of Life, are what we may be short on, this coming summer. Because of the lack of snow fall, this weird winter.

    People are happy with less money spent on heating and it being easier to get around... Me too. But come summer, betcha' the water bans will be going into effect. For the first time in years.

    Ahhhh well... All of life is cyclical. We know that... :-)
