Ba Ngu

April 11th, 2008 by sabrina

Ba Ngu is the Indonesian Goddess of dolphins. Also called Lady Dolphin, she rescues shipwrecked sailors. The Indonesians are very respectful of Ba Ngu, and treat all dolphins as they would treat the Goddess herself. Whenever a dolphin is found dead at sea or on the shore, a burial ceremony is held to honor Ba Ngu.
