Goddess Ninkharsag—Ancient Powerful Mother who Faded into The Holy Ghost

(Read the article on one page)

The tale of our creation we know from the Bible is only half the story—one which has been heavily edited. But have you ever wondered how god created male and female in his image? There are other sources that give alternate accounts, filling in missing details or answering questions raised by reading Genesis. The Jews wrote their religious texts while in captivity in Babylon, using the Sumerian and Assyrian tales of gods and goddesses as a basis, and then amending them to fit their own mythology and religion. It is in the Sumerian/Babylonian tales we find a different perspective on a well-known story.

In ancient myth Enki and Enlil were known as two half-brothers fighting for control over Earth, with their father, Anu, undecided as to who should succeed him. Their half-sister was Sud, and she was held in the highest esteem by the Annunaki, and had her own base of power on a sacred mountain, Eridu.

It was said the tradition among the Annunaki was to secure the bloodlines through mating half-siblings (never full-blooded siblings). So even if a male produced an heir with his concubine or wife, if he then had a son with his half-sister, that child would be the heir presumptive.

This was the base of the disagreement between Enki and Enlil, which we see replicated in the story of Abraham and his sons. Abraham had a child with Hagar, and their son Ishmael was the eldest and should have been the heir, but his wife Sarah was, according to some accounts, Abraham’s half-sister and so their son Isaac had precedence.

Whether it was to keep the family together and bring peace to the warring brothers, or because she had plans for her own descendants, Sud mated with both Enki and Enlil, producing heirs. The result was such that the next generation found themselves continuing the dispute and quite often Sud had to be called in to settle wars.

As a result of her peace efforts and in acknowledgement of her accomplishments as a scientist, including the creation of humans, she was given the honorific ‘Lady of Life’, or Mammu/Mama and became known from then on as Ninkharsag. She is the mother-goddess that we know in many forms, (though not Mother-Earth, which is Tiamat or Gaia), the creator of life whose milk nourishes kings.

As far as we know, legend indicates her motives in creating humans were unselfish. The Annunaki wanted servants to do the menial tasks for them on Earth and so it fell to Ninkharsag and Enki to create these beings.  After some time, Enki was not satisfied with their creation who “ate out of troughs like sheep” and wanted to give them more intelligence. Ninkharsag agreed and their experiments were eventually successful, though Enlil was outraged at what they had done, accusing them of making men “like Gods.”

While Ninkharsag’s motives were said to have been for the best —seeking to better the lives of their servants and give them intelligence with the hope they may have fulfilling lies—Enki was a little more complicated.

He needed soldiers, and in the texts, he and one of his sons outfitted and trained humans to wage war, which implies this is the fundamental reason for mankind’s willingness to war on behalf of ‘God’; it was supposedly ingrained into our ancestors at the moment of their awakening. It is apparent that though Enki may have bred soldiers, he was preferable as Earth’s ruler from humanity’s point of view, than his harsh and tyrannical brother.

As a result of the back and forth between the two brothers, Ninkharsag found herself siding with Enki more and more, and despising Enlil’s treatment of the humans, whom she loved. Every time they suffered, either as a result of war or natural disaster, she would weep as though for her own children.

So, how did she lose her position?  The mythological record states the war of arms became a war of ideology as mankind continued to grow in spite of Enlil’s efforts at population control. As man diversified, most found themselves in two camps: Enki, whose dominion was Magan, or Egypt, and Enlil, who had moved his power base from Sumer to what we know today as Jerusalem. All three were old by that time, and with Ninkharsag being mockingly referred to as “an old cow” behind her back by the other Annunaki, though she still had power.

Comments

This is an interesting article but biased in favour of feminism. I'm not sure what the benefit is of shifting from supposed 'patriarchy' to matriarchy could possibly be - isn't that just as imbalanced?

What Hitler did wasn't right either, but it is important history nonetheless.

A little too far fetched… You just converted mythology into a novel.

 

Thats Ok Migo the Jews and Christians converted mythology into a bible.

I understand what you say, but I think you are missing a point. It's not as if there was one mythology that belonged to one determinate group, there were beliefs, shared mythologies, shared ideas, shared mythologies that were reflected by various groups. I think is wrong to say that the Jews and Christians turned this mythologies into the Bible, the bible is just one more reflection of this beliefs that people had.
And I think it's really, really wrong to compare a novel to the bible.

 

Yes most novels are better written,with fewer inconsistencies,and better plots than worship me no matter how I treat you or burn in a lake of fire forever.

Once again, you lost the point. As I said, we're not talking about a novel. Even if the gods are good or bad, or if there are contradictions or not, mythology is mythology and not a novel. Don't let atheism get in your way to understand that.

 

So what exactly makes the Bible historical fact,and all other world wide cultures creation stories,written and verbally transmitted history and beginnings."Mythology"? And let's not forget how,Christianity.More specifically Catholocism,was forced on every culture they could reach,while totally destroying the history,ancestory,and cultural beliefs of said cultures.Unless they were able to defend themselves,like the Muslems did.And let's also not forget about cultures that have thousands of years of cultural history.Some had flourishing societies,large metropolis type cities,writing,art,music,laws,agricultrial development,schools,medicine and doctors,and much much more.All while Europe was still in the stone age.Such as South America,India,Africa,and others.But their creation stories and history,are just "Mythology" too.Right?

Which is exactly what the bible is. All versions of it. (yes, I am an athiest/agnostic hoping there is something)

I found it to be a very interesting article, and given the gap in our known history and what we know of the connections between Genesis and Sumerian mythology definitely possible. I only have one small thing to point out. As far as I know the land of Sumer wasn't where Jerusalem is today, it's located where present day Iraq is.

You misunderstood. "from Sumer to what we know today as Jerusalem".

The Sumerian Writings have quite enough references showing they are the true basis of the Torah and Old Testament.  These are not weak correlations; they are very strong ones, and these points have been batted around by historians and Biblical Scholars ever since the older texts were excavated in Iraq, around the mid 1800’s.  

The majority concensous is that the more ancient Sumerian writings are indeed from where the Torah writings originated. The main stories we’ve learned from the Torah and Old Testament, such as:  the creation of man, the Garden of Eden, the punishment of Eve with the pain of childbirth, the Serpent, the flood, the burning bush, the escape from Egypt, and Iconic men with the same, or very similar characteristics and experiences of those we know of as Abraham, Noah, and Moses, etc., as well as the first humans created, that we know as Adam and Eve, are actually references to a group of humans created, that were called the “Adamas,” are all found in the Sumerian writings, along with much more, including the giants. 

The Sumerian writings tell us the giants were of a similar group of beings from which the Sumerian Gods were related.  The Hebrews chose just one of the gods from the group, and claimed this being to be the one true God. The Torah therefore, is a summary of interactions with multiple gods and their offspring, interacting with multiple human-beings, throughout time. According to some, the offspring of the ‘gods’ of antiquity, passed on their genetics to the royal families of today, through further and repeated breeding, within a particular group of humans who’ve resolved to keep their line pure, by not marrying outside this bloodline.  It’s possible that the monarchy honors this belief, as is witnessed in the crest and symbology they portray. 

The older writings are much more detailed and sometimes with very different outcomes, but we can match these differences, either with particular events that the Hebrews experienced at a much later time in history, that were changed to support the Hebraic storyline.  

The Sumerian texts were written about a different group of men with different names, with very different beliefs, several thousands of years before the men of the Torah, i.e., Abraham, Noah, Moses, etc. were born. Also of note, is that the original Sumerian stories were in a NON-Semitic writing style, put down in clay ages before a Semitic group had the ability to write or use pictograms or hieroglyphs, or before a group called Semitic even materialized for the first time.

We can tie in the Sumerian writings to findings in the Dead Sea Scrolls, showing that the Assenes worshipped “The ATEN,” and followed the Akhenaten Cult. After Akhenaten’s removal from the throne, it was a heresy to be associated with him and his god.  Is this when the Semitics broke from their main group, renaming themselves as Hebrews in order to escape out of Egypt?  There’s some evidence showing this may be the case, that the entity we know as “the ATEN” was changed to the name of YWHW, and due to the ATEN having no historical background, the Sumerian history was attached to this god as a backdrop to give this entity more credence. The ATEN and YWYW connection is not proven, but there's something more here that should be explored.

At this point, we have no idea what culture of people the original writings were truly written about, or if they had any basis in the real world at all, or just written as fantasy.  If these were true stories, what ethicity were the original peoples? Does their bloodline still exist today?  The Sumerians say the gods referred to their first human creations as the “black headed people,” but there was no reference to skin or eye color. Being that the 'gods' were referred to as light skinned, light haired, blue-eyed, and sometimes as "the shining ones," what does this tell us about the first humans they created, if humans were created in their image through using their own genetics?  If human beings looked very different from the gods who created them, wouldn't they be referenced much differently than by hair color? 

It may always be a mystery, because the Sumerians themselves, may have copied their stories from an even much earlier culture, manipulating them to fit their own needs.  Regardless if the Sumerian Stories are true or not, what I find to be a strong and noteworthy conclusion, is that the Torah as well as the Old Testament, are proven to be plagiarized and manipulated summaries of the much more detailed, and more ancient stories that were venerated in the ancient world more than 6,000 years ago among the  Sumerian Culture.  Although many questions will prevail, some important ones have been answered, imho.  (c 2015 Connie Ashley)

Connie,
With great respect to your historical knowledge, I wonder if you may comment on any influence some of the ancient Hindu beliefs may have had.

Internet Quote....

Purusha (Sanskrit puruṣa, पुरुष") is a complex concept whose meaning evolved in Vedic and Upanishadictimes. Depending on source and historical timeline, it means the cosmic man or it means Self, Consciousness, and Universal principle. In early Vedas, Purusa meant a cosmic man whose sacrifice by the gods created all life. This was one of many creation theories discussed in the Vedas. 

Purusha is also, in one of the early creation myths related in the Rigveda, India’s oldest text, the primal man from whose body the universe was created. 

Purusa ("person," or "spirit"), in Indian philosophy, the soul, or self. The existence of an eternal, unchanging self is accepted by most schools of Indian philosophy, though they differ in their description of its essence and the proofs for its existence.

@Starkissed(Connie Ashley):

I think it is a certainty that the Sumerian texts we have recovered have their roots in much more ancient writings; often this is explicitly stated in the text itself or in the margins, the scribe gives his name and states that he copied the content of the tablet from some ancient, crumbling/deteriorating source document, which is itself a copy of an even older text, and so on.
I think the oldest original source texts originated around 400,000 years ago, according to the texts themselves, and corroborated by working backward through all the scribes who made copies and the dates they gave. This corresponds with the timeline of civilization implied in the Sumerian Kings Lists, which stretches back 400,000 years or so.

So often I see people refer to biblical texts as having been "stolen" or "plagarized" from the original Sumerian texts(as if a myth is something that can be "stolen", lol), while the mythologies of Egypt, Assyria, Akkadia, Babylon, and Greece had "adapted" or "emulated" or "adopted from" the original Sumerian. The difference in word choices reveals bias, IMO. Very interesting in a psychological sense as well.

The origins of the Sumerians has not been discovered, nor has their language been deciphered/ translated.
We know the Sumerians existed because of references to the Sumerians by the Semites who later conquered them. The conquerors could read the Sumerian language and would translate it into their languages which we can translate. These scribes referenced the origins of the documents they translated. The Sumerians invented writing, wrote the first laws, and invented the wheel. If they took this from another culture, no traces of that culture has been found. I prefer to leave the above as originating with the Sumerians rather than asking rhetorical questions.

The Sumerians had what they called "The Seven Tablets of Creation".
The Garden of Eden is thought to have been in the upper Mesopotamia region, this is where Noah built his Ark. Abram./Abraham left Sumer to lead his people to the Promised Land.
Stitchen's works provide the above information. Stitchen cross referenced his works with the Bible.

The Bible states that Adam was not the only man. The Nephlim are mentioned in the Bible as in "The sons of the Gods mated with the daughters of Man.

The first sentence tell me that this is just  supposition and a definate feminist influence.

Just like the Egyptian goddess Hathor is associated with the Milky Way, the same is the case with goddess Ninkharsag. Different cultures named the same Milky Way figure as their prime goddess. (google Hathor)

The numerous cultural Stories of Creation are very closely connected to the Milky Way Mythology (google this) The Milky Way center have several mythic names: The First Light, The Cosmic Mountain and The Cosmic Womb when imagined as the Great Woman” in the Sky as illustrated here – http://www.native-science.net/MilkyWay.MotherGoddess.htm

The Milky Way Mother Goddess resides on the southern hemisphere and the Milky Way center is located in the star constellation of Sagittarius which corresponds nicely to “the womb area” of the Milky Way Woman, from where the creation takes place, hence the logical allegory to the creator goddess.

The consort of the Milky Way Goddess resides on the northern hemisphere where the crescent Milky Way contours can be imagined as a Great Man in the Sky as seen here – http://www.native-science.net/MilkyWay.GreatestGod.htm

These two celestial images are imagined and depicted by humans all over the world to be “the prime deities in whom´s image we all are created”.

The article rings true, since it is consistent with other accounts. These suggest some primal mother goddess has never been completely eclipsed in the Med area, despite the marked mysoginistic bias of major cultures.
"Great is Diana of Ephesus" cried the mob chasing Paul out of town. She was indeed great, becoming the dominant Mary figure of Med Christianity. Remarkable, given the general low power-status of women in Greek & Roman worlds.

Some argue that proto-Islam's major deity was female. Islam's symbol is the crescent moon, once believed to be the source of Diana's 'arrows' (meteorites). The Kabaa in Mecca is a black stone.

If looking at the Milky Way figures om both hemispheres, they take the shape of a crescent figure which revolves around the celestial poles, This crescent Milky Way figure is confused to be associated with the Moon because people/scholars/comparative mythologists have forgtten the symbols of the Milky Way Mythology. http://www.native-science.net/MilkyWay.Mythology.Keys.htm

Native,
iconology is an inexact/ambiguous business, by its nature, for ancients & modern scholars alike. A graphic symbol is that, representative of s/thing else (!). What that 'else' can/might be is never a matter of one-to-one mapping. If probability is any guide, there is a lot of evidence that the supreme prehistoric being was accepted to be female. The strength of this conclusion is reinforced by the stubborn survival of this 'she' thru later eons. Becoz, at deepest psi levels, we are all (failed) gatherer-hunters. Humanity was born of the ks of nomad years that shaped its psychology. Stringer (Time Walkers) suggested this, if I read him correctly.

It could seem so, yes. But IMO this is just because modern scholars have forgotten the mythical context and it´s cosmological connections – which STILL can be connected because we can read of these connections in the myths themselves.

Just take the Egyptian goddess Hathor who is associated with the creation of the Milky Way. Just by knowing this, lots of ancient symbolism is cosmologically understandable by modern people.

It was my understanding that Ashterte became the Shchina, God's feminine side?

Every time I read the names 'Adam and Eve' - I think Atom and Evolution.

Barry Sears's picture

Hi All, I just wanted to start by adding a cut and paste....

Amongst the Eastern Church communities there is none more clear about the feminine aspect of the Holy Spirit as the corpus of the Coptic-Gnostic's. One such document records that Jesus says, "Even so did my mother, the Holy Spirit, take me by one of my hairs and carry me away to the great mountain Tabor [in Galilee]." The 3rd century scroll of mystical Coptic Christianity, The Acts of Thomas, gives a graphic account of the Apostle Thomas' travels to India, and contains prayers invoking the Holy Spirit as "the Mother of all creation" and "compassionate mother," among other titles. The most profound Coptic Christian writings definitely link the "spirit of Spirit" manifested by Christ to all believers as the "Spirit of the Divine Mother." Most significant are the new manuscript discoveries of recent decades which have demonstrated that more early Christians than previously thought regarded the Holy Spirit as the Mother of Jesus. One text is the Gospel of Thomas which is part of the newly discovered Nag Hammadi texts (discovered 1945-1947). Most are composed about the same time as the Biblical gospels in the 1st and 2nd century AD. In this gospel, Jesus declares that his disciples must hate their earthly parents (as in Luke 14:26) but love the Father and Mother as he does, "for my mother (gave me falsehood), but (my) true Mother gave me life." In another Nag Hammadi discovery, The Secret Book of James, Jesus refers to himself as "the son of the Holy Spirit." These two sayings do not identify the Holy Spirit as the mothering vehicle of Jesus, but more than one scholar has interpreted them to mean that the maternal Holy Spirit is intended. http://www.pistissophia.org/The_Holy_Spirit/the_holy_spirit.html

Barry Sears's picture

It is my understanding that the Holy Spirit is the biblical defined title for the Mother Earth. All references usually refer to the terrestrial configuration and cosmological structure known by most cultures as an Earth Mother. This is combined with the Celestial Father figure. It is a contrast to the Egyptian genders but the recognition of the Earth figure is clearly defined by Mr Christ. At the time of Mr Christ the Zodiac detailed the Celestial figure divided into twelve anatomical parts from the head to the feet. These connected to the Earth zodiacs, which were observations of the World anatomy and changing characteristics of our animals, expressing the zones on Earth from the head to the tail. The Earth zodiacs rotate opposite to the Celestial zodiacs and are usually filled by animals and their anatomical variations. Mr Christ confirmed the Earth formation and defined the region of Israel as the zone of the womb, Virgo, the Virgin Mary. This is obviously next to Egypt which is the zone of the lungs of Leo the sphinx. All regions of the World consist of great monuments and stories related to the individual parts of the World anatomy. This on a cosmological level is referred to in the bible as the Holy Spirit.

I disagree with the who people viewed this article as feminist. To me, it appears that this article is highlighting a forgotten history of our religion. It is interesting that archaeological digs in Israel show that "God" had a wife prior to the Babylonian exile who disappeared when they returned. What I've always wondered is, Why were the Jews so afraid of the feminine aspects of godhood that they had to get rid of her? Granted, Judaism is very patriarchal but, if you read the Bible carefully, Asherah had worshipers in some areas in Israel almost up to the Intertestamental period (beginning around the 5th century BCE). At the point where the Old Testament ends, Prophets were still trying the burn the "high places" where the goddess was worshiped. I have to wonder what Judaism would have been like had God been allowed to keep his wife. (IMHO and no feminism intended).

Native's picture

kitnkaat,
I agrre with you on this. The ancient known Mother Goddess, in the Jewish case Ashera, is for some cultural and social reasons left out of the monotheistic religions and this have affected the these cultures severely, thus “downzising” everything female and also downgrading the connection with nature itself.
The monotheistic and patriarchal approach to religion is just stupid and unnatural. It takes a female and male gender and quality to create anything and this was why the earlier religion had both a god and a goddess in order to explain their Stories of Creation in a natural way which could relate to the human sense..
Besides this, the seemingly dualism in the monotheistic religions shall be understood as “complementary”. and not as “good and/or bad”.

Barry Sears's picture

I believe the traditional concept is very basic and has been overly detailed and complicated in some parts of the World. Each region of the World has been recorded with ancient monuments, each individual parts or stories binding together to form a more complete picture. Ancient monuments are all parts of the full body signifying ancient global communications. A new document details how ancient messages had travelled to New Zealand and were kept pure due to the isolation, these ancient stories resonate through global beliefs.

The simple ancient messages define the cosmological structures of life. These are life forms on Earth. The next level is the planets and solar systems. The next level is the galactic forms. Ancient stories define the planet Earth as a female figure, surrounded by the sky Father figure. There is confusion here that the heavenly or sky Father figure, some now consider as God but this is not the traditional message. Every level of life are only parts of a universal God figure. 

The traditional defining of these structures in life were bound by ancient scientific observations as an expression of how life works. The universal pattern influences the smaller units of life and so the Galaxies become expressions of the universal order. Planets and solar systems are expressions of the Galactic energies and life on Earth is the expression of this same universal template passed through each level of life. 

The human body was used to express this design, but now we know that the World has evolved to this pattern as history tries to teach us. Life on each part of the Earth is an expression of the World body. (Please see my picture for the World body) Projecting this pattern outwards is then a natural and logical process.

The heavenly Father has become confused with the universal image of God. These smaller images can be seen as physical structures as plotted by ancient teaching but can only be macrocosmically projected to comprehend a universal God.

I agree on your cosmological description, but regarding the human imagination of the celestial images, several star constellations are imagined as deities of both genders. The very same goes for the contours of the Milky Way wich is closely connected to the numerous cultural Stories of Creation.

As the Milky Way contours on both hemispheres are the largest celestial structures which can be observed, they are also connected to the Myths of Giants. The Milky Way center is located on the southern hemisphere in the star constellation of Sagittarius. In many cultural myths, the southern henisphere Milky Way contours are imagined and named as a prime female, The Great Mother Goddess (The Goddess Ninkharsag in this article) deity because of the creative formation in the Milky Way together with the central light in the Milky Way center – See more here – http://www.native-science.net/MilkyWay.MotherGoddess.htm

On the northern hemisphere, the Milky Way contours are imagined as a prime male deity, the Great Father God. Read more here – http://www.native-science.net/MilkyWay.GreatestGod.htm

So this fits nicely with the mytho-cosmological myth of The heavenly Father and the modern confusion of this and other deities mostly derives from a forgotten mytho-cosmological language.

These ancient and mythical/archetypical tellings of cosmos can of course be interpreted in several levels, even including a modern explanation of the creation. It is just a question of taking “deities” as “natural forces of creation”, especially the electromagnetic forces.

The relationship our ancient teachers have passed on is that the Celestial energy system is a complete figure broken down into parts of the body and each part of the Celestial body corresponds to the parts of the World body and so to our bodies. This connection was heavily observed by studying the World. The Celestial constellations are observations of the World projected back to the connecting region considered the source of energy. Traditionally the zodiac signs refer to anatomical parts. Each sign is from a different region of the World and has a feature corresponding to that point of the anatomy. For example Aries is the head and the animal characteristic is the horns from this point, Taurus is the neck of the bull....

Each sign has been recorded around the World. Leo the lungs is the sphinx region of Egypt. Virgo is next, the womb and is Israel, recorded in history through Mr Christ and the Virgin Mary. Sites all around the World correspond from the heads of Easter Island to the Merlion of Singapore. These also directly match the World picture of my profile as a complete body. I have studied over the past 25 years our Worlds animals and they also have features that match each part of the World. For example the big neck of the Buffalo comes from the neck region of the World. The springy thighs of the kangaroo comes from the thigh region of the World body.

Very interestingly there is also a physical correlation to the Celestial energy system, physically spiralling from the Northern Polaris to the Southern Polaris. 

With regards to gender I always refer to these structures as the World and Celestial bodies. From the region of India if you look at my picture you will be familiar with the special connection to the holy cow. The distinguishing feature of a cow is the udder which has a special connection to this region of the Worlds anatomy. This was realised thousands of years ago.

If you are considering ancient Celestial charts, it is known now that many of these are now considered ancient World charts and observations of Earth. The Earth charts rotate in the opposite direction to Celestial charts and were largely focused on the unique anatomical observations of life on Earth. 

Thank you for your references I shall explore them.

“Traditionally the zodiac signs refer to anatomical parts. Each sign is from a different region of the World and has a feature corresponding to that point of the anatomy”.

Is this view from a traditional astrological point of view or somewhat esoteric?

Barry Sears's picture

The zodiac signs are absolutely representations of each of the anatomical parts. They always have been. What is not esoteric but lost is the designation to the World zones. It is rather obvious however that each of the signs are Earthly observations and characteristics. The lost aspect is that each of the signs are from each of the twelve regions around the equatorial belt. This is why each region of the World has magnificent monuments that fit the signs and form the complete body. This site has a gallery above and has some pictures of zodiacs indicating the body connections. Here is a very modern site expressing some ideas, but the concept is recorded in some of the early Vedas as I am sure you are aware. 

http://www.luminarium.org/encyclopedia/zodiacman.htm

 What I have been shown is that these regions recorded by our history actually directly match the picture of the World as a complete body as you can see in my profile picture. For example the heads of Easter Island if you raise the location is where the actual head of the World is. Here is a modern photo recorded as "the face of the World" by a very well established scientific organisation.   http://jules.unavco.org/VoyagerJr/EarthScope?

 

Obviously some of the other regions of the World match perfectly like the sphinx at the Leo zone and next Israel known as the land of Virgo, then the scales of Buddha....

Quote Jesus says, "Even so did my mother, the Holy Spirit”

Once you see the structures of life with this connection many stories and messages become quite clear. As I mentioned I have studied for years the relationship between our animal forms and the connection to the Earth form, the results are enlightening.

Ancient Places

Antarctica.
On a chilly winter day in 1929, Halil Edhem, the Director of Turkey's National Museum, was hunched over his solitary task of classifying documents. He pulled towards him a map drawn on Roe deer skin. As Halil opened the chart to its full dimensions (two feet by three feet wide or 60 X 90 cm) he was surprised by how much of the New World was depicted on a map which dated from 1513.
