In Greek mythology «The Goddess of Love and Beauty» is the young hunter of Aphrodite's love. He was killed by a wild boar. Aphrodite, Adonis'in the first spring each year to go out on earth and 6 months of life for the gods were willing. His departure was celebrated in ancient Greece as the "Holiday of Adonijah". Adonis first appears in the mythology as Phoenician god. Then we see him as a mythical hero from the Sumerian, Hittite, Phoenician and Babylon sources to the ancient Hellenes. The Adonis narrative, which gives another expression of the Kybele-Attis narrative, is an earth-fertility narrative. Many stories of poetry and fairy tale authors work on beaded beans.

Women's likes are portrayed in the form of a sacred wild boar, as the goddesses describe the type of beautiful male they fell on each other with her love. S. Reinach, in his work Orpheus, describes how a woman's urine worshiped her and fed a wild boar as Adonis. Every year, at the sacrifice feast of women, they cut off this wild boar, Adonis, and then started feeding a new wild boar. Babylonian sources show Adonis as the male principle of life and Astarte (Istar, Ashtath) as the female principle.

Adonis was born from having sex with the daughter of the Syrian king, Myrrha (according to some sources, Cypriot King Kinyras and his daughter Smyrna), according to the description of Panyasis of Hellas (b. This girl, who was the goddess of Aphrodite, was hired by her father and wanted to have sex with her. A nanny set up by his nanny entered his father's bed and made love with him for twelve nights, and conceived the last night. That night his father was very angry when he realized that he was the daughter of the woman lying next to him and wanted to walk over and kill him. But the gods hurt Myrrha and turned him into a myrtle tree to save him from the hands of his father.

Ten months later, the tree was cracked and a beautiful baby came out of the body. Aphrodite shot to the beauty of the child gave it to the underworld goddess Persephone so you can grow it. But Persephone is also being held by the child and is not ready to return it to Aphrodite. Zeus, who judged the tribal battle between Goddesses, decided that Adonis would spend four months of the year with Persephone and four months with Aphrodite, and the rest of the time he could live where he wanted. When Adonis chooses to stay with Aphrodite, the gods (Ares or Artemis) who envy the love of the goddess to the beautiful man have released a wild boar on Adonis.

Adonis, who was injured by the blaze, gave blood to the canal. The spring flowers, called maniallas in the soil, which are watered with the blood flowing from Adonis, are finished. Aphrodite running for help of his lover, the white rose, which is the flower of the goddess of blood, flowing from the slip, dyed with the thorn, dyed red. When Adonis died, the goddess Aphrodite (Ishtar according to Phoenician sources) descended to the land of death to rescue him. Zeus, who did not want to break both gods when he fell in love with Adonis, the goddess of death country Persephone, ordered Adonis to remain on earth for one year underground.

Adonis hid in the ground in the winter, spring back to earth and symbolize the hereditary nature that flourishes and grows in love. Especially women worship in Syria; they make a spring festival every year, pots, seeds in baskets, water them with hot water; so that these plants grow fast and soon fade away and die. In front of these flowers called "Adonis Gardens", women mourn and say, "That's Adonin!" (Vah Adonis!) With their screams. The Adonis rhetoric comes from Sumer and Hittite sources. Adonis is the Hellenciriled counterpart of Tammuz (Turkish July) which means "master" in Sami language. The relation and similarity between the Tammuz-Adonis rhetoric and the Hittite fertility god Telepinu narration is striking. The Adonis story is also described in a different way for Attry, the king of Phrygia (Phrygia).

According to the ancient Hellen (Greek) belief that Aphrodite, the son of all plants, is a son named Adonis, this beautiful son of the beauty goddess is shown as a symbol of spring and flowering spring, which quickly abandons us. When Adonis breaks out of the tree he is hiding, the beautiful days come back, the flowers open, and the spring laughs. Adonis grew quickly, not slowly, but in a few days, like life, roses, sparse flowers. Because Adonis was dying the day he opened and laughed, the most beautiful and bright age of his youth. This time also comes at the end of summer. In this period, plants burning from the sun's roasting heat are bending their heads and giving their lives.

In such a season he was chasing a wild boar. This wild animal returns a range, bounces and kills him with the sharp, sharp teeth of this beautiful man who follows him. Aphrodite rushes over his painful cries, forgetting to wear his boots from his house to help his son, and faltering to a rosary plant, his laughing spines sinking into his feet and blood flows. The rose seedlings that open up the roses until that time will now take on the red colors after that day. The beautiful goddess with brown hair finds her dead when she comes to Adonis. From Adonis's tears that are poured by the primitive Aphrodite, "anemones", "manisalaleri" comes out.

Adonis' ceremonies are held because of the bright youth and the untimely death. In these ceremonies, on certain days, women cried hurtingly, screaming painfully to commemorate her pathetic death. They adorn a bed painted in red, a young man who was about to give up and looks very similar to Adonis. Eoslar, flying over the bed, shaded, tears. Fruits, ovens, beautiful scenting vases and silver baskets, especially those with very short life spans, open at dawn and flowers that fade when the sun sets. Thus, it is recalled that the beautiful Adonis, whose tears have turned their tears, are so short as their flower life.

The next day Eos, the women who shagged their hair when they opened their door with their fingers, took this beautiful body, left a big crowd and a splendid wave, and when they disappeared from the waves, they started singing. Because Adonis will bring the autumn which will make the nature which is yellow with the rains of the coming season. According to another myth or emulation; Adonis, known as Smyrna's son in Greek mythology, is described as a beautiful and ideal god who brings rebirth and spring. In Anatolian Mythology, it is also referred to as the Khidr prophet with the same features.

Smyrna (the Princess of Cyprus) is punished by the goddess Hera and is turned one round in the city of Halkapinar in Izmir. But when Smyrna was turned around, Adonis was gone. Nine months later she was born breaking the tree of the tree. Born with birth, both brought the spring, as well as the perfection between the gods, beauty, sampled the ideal. The famous manisalales (anemone) color is also found in this emulation of Adonis's blood.

Again, according to a myth, King Kinyras has a daughter named Myrrha, who has a dream of beautiful tongues. One day his father misses the word that his daughter is better than Aphrodite, the goddess of beauty, during a friendly meeting in the sun. Around the palace, the goddess Aphrodite said, sends spells of love to King Kinyras and Myrrha unaware of anything to take the foe. King Kinyras on this; many times (thirteen times according to the ritual), the nights enter the girl's bed, fooling her nanny with gifts. However, the king who eventually finds out that the daughter is conceived by himself; to kill her pregnant daughter Myrrha who is hiding in the forest from shame and fear, she starts searching and searching everywhere.


The myrrha begs the god to get rid of it. Zeus, who pity the situation, turns Myrrha into a myrtle tree. After a while, a child from Myrrha's coat, which has turned into a myrtle tree, comes to earth. The goddess Aphrodite takes care of this beautiful baby named Adonis, who has her until the end. Worshiping Adonis, which first began to spread in Syria's Biblos region, where the tomb of Adonis was located; in a short time all over Anatolia, Italy and Athens. The wild boars in Cyprus have been sacrificed for the honor of Adonis. In Athens in April, different ceremonies were organized for him.

Adonis faith worship ceremonies; in some regions it is symbolically celebrated according to the characteristics of the seasons. For example, ceremonies at the end of winter season; Adonis, who lives near the goddess Persephone underground, is organized in accordance with the desire to return to earth immediately. Because at the end of this winter season, when Adonis returns to my world and meets Aphrodite, the hope of earth and water wakes up and humanity becomes love, peace and prosperity begins. In ancient Syria, Adonis symbolizes the shortness of life.

Adonis is a life cycle that revives nature in a new spring that glows in the spring and dies in the summer and hides in the winter underground, with an adventure resembling the recurrence of the underground god Abu Zu of the sumers. The Syrian women plant their baskets and potted plants every year during the Adonis spring festival they do every year and water the seeds with hot water. The hot watered plant grows quickly and fades quickly. This is a dialectical dependency; quickly mature quickly die. Syrian women mourn and cry for the "Adonis Gardens", which symbolize the shortness of life. Everything in nature is born, living and dying. This adventure develops and is in a dialectical proportion. The belief in "Adonis Gardens" is that this natural adventure is applied to human life, which is made parallel to the plants.
