The Divine Mother

We venerate Mother Earth,

the sustainer and preserver of forests, vegetation,

and all things that are held together firmly.

She is the source of a stable environment.

– Atharva Veda, Verse 27

From the English translation, In Praise of Mother Earth: The Prthivi Sukta of the Atharva Veda
