Stone Circles in Crete - Demeter

Myths of Crete and Pre-Hellenic Europe: Introduction

Demeter of the Grecian Phigalia--the Black Ceres--lived in a cave, which is still regarded as sacred. This deity, who is believed to be a form of the Cretan Great Mother, was also associated with stone circles. Pausanias, writing of the town of Hermione in the Peloponnese, says that near it "there is a circle of huge unhewn stones, and inside this circle they perform the sacred rites of Demeter". 1

Demeter is basically Female or Mother Worship Principle, which in India goes by the name of Durga, Mata, Shakti, Kali, Latha, Bhavani, and so on. In fact people who go to the Vaishno Devi Mandir in India still say "Je Mata De", and please note "Mata De" or "De Mata", which is same as "De Meter". "Matri" is the general noun root, and the singular is "Mata".

This just confirms the same cultural influence from Scotland, Ireland, England and Wales to Crete, Greece, Italy and Antolia.

This backs up the article on Stonehenge also being the principle of Mother/Female and Father/Male Principle, besides other things. It also backs up the find of Aum in the post Aum In Crete And America.

The number 432000 known to Hindus, Persians and Babylonians and encoded in the mythological stories of Italians and Nordic people, is also shown to be encoded in the post on Stonehenge in the series of post covered in the blog. The well known factors of the number 432000 are part of the Stone Circles that are encoded.
