BALTIC MYTHOLOGY

The Gods of Lithuania, Latvia & Prussia...

MARA

Baltic Milk Goddess

Also known as MĀRA, MĀRŠA, LOPU-MATE, PIENA-MATE

Goddess of Milk Production

A dairy deity of abundance, she protects cows and blesses them with fertility.

She does everything she can to encourage cows to give lovely thick nourishing milk. That means luscious grass, beautiful meadows and lots of soothing peptalk. Much more healthy and planet-friendly than hormone injections. Her services are much appreciated by organic dairy farmers.

MARA is possibly related to MOSCHEL who does much the same thing.
