A Benevolent Mother Goddess

In Hinduism, Aditi is a benevolent mother deity of the gods, all heavenly bodies and of the limitless sky. Her name denotes 'limitless' or 'free from bonds'. She is a shining and luminous goddess and the female generative force of cosmic creation. She is treated as the Yoni of the Universe, the Mother-Womb. She is sometimes identified with cows. The Vedas portray her as the consort of the primordial god Kasyapa or Brahma.
