Milda is the Lithuanian goddess of love courting friendship and freedom. She is the worst enemy of loneliness and she is often portrayed as a woman who drives a chariot pulled by doves. She likes to ride naked causing hearts to flutter and it is rumored that one glimpse at her delightful vision as it wafts down the street and you’re mere seconds away from love.
Milda does not care about marriage. In her eyes matrimony is secondary to love and friendship. Milda means freedom to her worshippers. If you have been married and then divorced you can probably relate to this goddess! Her name is also the nickname of Latvia’s Monument of Freedom in Riga.
However for this reason she was hated by many religious fanatics. Most pious Catholics and other followers of Jesus Christ and Yahweh (God Allah) hated Milda.
Therefore the Catholic Church tried hard to erase even Milda’s name from the history of Lithuania. Only few historians have mentioned Milda as well as Ragana in their reports over the traditional Lithuanian faith.
Due to the lack of information on this goddess the illustration also reflects the mysterious nature of her who is free and ever present as the wind itself.
