Our Second Celtic Gods Candle is - The Dagda!
The Dagda's name is pronounced "DAW-dYAW"
The Dagda, also known as the Good God, is a major deity of Celtic mythology. The Celtic god Dagda is associated with abundance and knowledge, often depicted with magical attributes such as a magic cauldron, club, and harp. (He has been called the Irish Odin)
In addition, he is said to have possessed great power over life and death. The name Dagda comes from the Proto-Celtic phrase "Dago-deiwos" (earlier known as Dogodeiwos), which translates to good god or shining god.
In addition to the traditional roles associated with Celtic gods, such as fertility and justice, the Dagda was also known for his powerful magical abilities. He is believed to have been able to control the weather and could even bring back the dead or heal those with serious injuries. The Dagda was also incredibly generous, often sharing his bounty with others.
The Dagda is an important figure in Celtic mythology, and his veneration continues to this day. He is closely related to concepts of abundance, justice, and power while embodying the best qualities of a leader or teacher. He is often used as an example of a benevolent god who uses his gifts for the benefit of humanity.
So how does he help us today? He reminds us to work towards being a good person, putting out BEST effort forward!
