SARAMA is the Vedic Goddess of intuition and dogs. She serves as a messenger for Indra, Lord of the Gods, and is the mother of the Sarameyas, two dogs who served Yama, God of death. Sarama was the only one able to find the sacred cows that had been stolen from the Angirasas, the fire priests, by following the path of truth, guided by her intuition. Sarama's name means "the fleet one," and she was also called DEVASHUNI (divine bitch) and the HOUND OF HEAVEN.

Diana Of The Wild Wood Image
ON THIS DAY EACH YEAR IN ANCIENT ROME, A FESTIVAL WAS HELD HONORING "DIANA "OF THE "WILD WOOD"; SHE HAS BEEN CALLED THE "QUEEN OF WILD BEASTS". "DIANA "WAS ESSENTIALLY A WOODLAND GODDESS AND ALL WILD NATURE WAS HER DOMAIN, ESPECIALLY THE FORESTS WHICH ARE THE HAUNTS OF THE WILD ANIMALS. THE CREATURES THERE ARE UNDER HER PROTECTION, AND SHE HAS BEEN KNOWN TO TAKE CRUEL VENGEANCE ON ANYONE WHO OFFENDS AGAINST HER FOREST LAW.

"DIANA "WAS THE MOTHER OF ALL. HER DOMAIN IS NATURAL LIFE, FROM BIRTH AND REPRODUCTION TO DEATH; HER POWER IS THAT OF THE WILD BEASTS. AS A FERTILITY DEITY, SHE IS INVOKED BY WOMEN TO AID IN CONCEPTION AND DELIVERY. AND, ALTHOUGH SHE HAD NEVER ORIGINALLY BEEN CONNECTED TO THE "MOON", UPON THE ABSORPTION OF ARTEMIS' TRAITS, SHE EVENTUALLY BECAME A "MOON "GODDESS. HER SACRED ANIMALS ARE THE DOG AND THE STAG.

THE EVENING CELEBRATIONS WERE DEDICATED TO "DIANA" AND "PROSPERINA" AND TO THE "THREE FATES," WHO WERE HONORED WITH NIGHTTIME HEALING CEREMONIES. THE PEOPLE WERE PROVIDED WITH WHEAT, BARLEY, AND BEANS WHICH THEY THEN OFFERED TO THE FATES. ALL KINDS OF GAMES AND CONTESTS WERE CELEBRATED IN THE CITY DURING THIS FESTIVAL.
