Heart of Turtle Island
is the sacred Black Hills,
shaped like a human heart
and situated in the heart centre of
North American continent !
Created to be one of Earth's sacred altars,
the tall peaks are like natural pyramids
and the veins of gold and quartz crystal
conduct the peoples' prayers
straight into the heart of Mother Earth.

"Her Royal Majesty" the Bee Goddess has been revered in many different ancestral cultures !
According to Hindu mythology, there once lived an asura (demon) called Arun. He wanted to establish his kingdom by driving out the devas (nature spirits). The devas gathered together to decide how to defeat their enemy, but meanwhile, Aruna, surrounded by his army, invaded the heavens and dislodged the devas from their stations. The devas left their city, families and wives to seek advice from Lord Shiva. Thus Aruna effortlessly entered the kingdom. He summoned his fellow demons and angrily ordered them to summon the wives of the devas. The devis were brought before Aruna. In utter fear they closed their eyes and prayed to Parmeshwari Devi to save them.
Parmeshwari Devi transformed herself into a large bee surrounded by a swarm of bees. The swarm joined with the bees emerging from the palms of her four hands to cover the whole Earth. The sky was completely overcast with the swarm of bees, and the Earth was cast into darkness. The sky, mountain peaks, trees, forests, all became filled with bees and the spectacle presented a terrific sight. Then the black bees began to tear assunder the breasts of the demons, as bees sting those who disturb their hives. The powerless asuras could not fight or communicate with one another, and so perished rapidly. Adi Shakti, in her form as the divine bee approached Aruna asura and said, "O, asura! Meet your end!" And she stung him to death. The devis thanked Parmeshwari Devi for saving their chastity. That is how Devi got the name of 'Bhramari Devi' as the protector.
Shrimad Devi Bhagavatam, Book 10, Chapter 13
"Bees, like all insects that spin cocoons or weave webs, serve as images of the miraculous interconnectedness of life. The intricate cellular structure that secretes the golden essence of life is an image of the network of invisible nature that relates all things to each other in an ordered harmonious pattern. Perhaps this is the meaning of the tale in which the infant Zeus is fed on honey in Crete, and why honey was the nectar of the gods.
Furthermore, the busy bee, following the impulsion of its nature to pollinate the flowers and gather their nectar to be transformed into honey, was an example of the continual activity required of human beings to gather the crops and transform them into food. The queen bee, whom all the others serve during their brief lives, was, in the Neolithic, an epiphany of the Goddess herself." (Layne Redmond)

"Bhramari" signifies the 'Bees' in Hindi language. Shri Mataji said that the central heart chakra posesses 12 petals and it helps build the antibodies to protect humans from disease. Within this chakra resides Bhramari Devi and emits the droning notes of 'Bees' termed 'Bhramaran' as it throbs. It protects us from external attacks of negativities like bacteria or virus and is predominantly felt up to the age of 12 years in humans. It takes the form of Durga to protect us all the time, providing the element of confidence and security.
ANAHATA is the name of the Heart chakra. Chakras are like flowers.
