The Eternal Family

From ancient times, people of the Nadee Jheel have prayed for the aid of the Eternal Family. It would be wrong to call the Seven Siblings gods.

 
 

Brother Sun

Who is the day and through whom You give us light. And he is beautiful and radiant with great splendor; and bears a likeness of You, Most High One.

 
 

Sister Moon and the stars,

in heaven You formed them clear and precious and beautiful.

 
 

Brother Wind

and through the air, cloudy and serene, and every kind of weather, through whom You give sustenance to Your creatures.

 
 

Sister Water

who is very useful and humble and precious and chaste.

 
 

Brother Fire

through whom You light the night, and he is beautiful and playful and robust and strong.

 
 

Sister Mother Earth

who sustains and governs us, and who produces various fruit with colored flowers and herbs.

 
 

Sister Bodily Death

from whom no one living can escape. Woe to those who die in mortal sin. Blessed are those whom death will find in Your most holy will, for the second death shall do them no harm.
