The word "Aditi" means "unbound" or in other words "liberty".
She is the mother of the Adityas and goddess of cosmic reality and time.
Aditi was the most revered goddess in ancient India but in today's time she has been diminished to a mere wife of a sage.
the artwork is inspired from the verses below:
Aditi is sky, and air's mid-region, Aditi is the father, son, and mother,
Aditi is all the Gods and the Five Nations, Aditi is what is now and what is future.
We call for help the Queen of Law and Order, great mother of all those whose ways are righteous,
Far-spread, unwasting, strong in her dominion, Aditi wisely leading, well protecting.
Sinless may we ascend, for weal, the vessel, rowed with good oars, divine, that never leaketh,
Earth, our strong guard, incomparable Heaven, Aditi wisely leading, well protecting.
Let us bring hither, in pursuit of riches, Aditi with our word,the mighty mother,
Her in whose lap the spacious air is lying: may she afford us triply-guarding shelter!
- Atharva-Veda, Mandala 7, Sukta 6(Translation by Ralph Griffith)
On the day on which you were born oh Indra, you did drink at will the mountain-abiding nectar, Soma, for your youthful mother,Aditi,in the dwelling of your sire,gave it to you before she gave the breast.
- Rig-Veda, Mandala 3, Sukta 48.
