The Anunnaki and the Story of Adapa

The Story of Adapa and the South Wind, with a twist…The story of Adapa, the son of the Anunnaki Ea/Enki, who, if it was not for his obedience to his father’s command, might have attained deification and immortality. Full Playlist: Mythology gods The story focuses on Adapa who was out in his boat fishing when the South Wind blew with sudden and malicious violence, upsetting the boat and flinging the fisherman into the sea. When he succeeded in reaching the shore Adapa vowed vengeance against the South Wind, which had used him so cruelly. “Shutu, thou demon,” he cried, “I will stretch forth my hand and break thy wings. Thou shalt not go unpunished for this outrage !” The Shutu is described as a hideous monster soaring in the air, with her huge flapping wings about her ungainly body. Adapa in his fury leapt at her, seized her wings, and broke them, so that she was no longer able to fly. Anu the Anunnaki lord of heaven, waits for the coming of the South Wind. But Shutu came not; the rains and the floods were delayed, and Anu grew impatient. “summon the youth before me, and let him answer for his crime.” “Be it so, O Anu !” The story continues, please watch the documentary. Adapa the Mesopotamian mythical character who unknowingly refused the gift of immortality. The story, commonly known as “Adapa and the South Wind”, is known from fragmentary tablets from Tell el-Amarna in Egypt (around 14th century BC) and from finds from the Library of Ashurbanipal, Assyria (around 7th century BC). Adapa was an important figure in Mesopotamian religion. His name would be used to invoke power in exorcism rituals. He also became an archetype for a wise ruler. In that context, his name would be invoked to evoke favorable comparisons. Some scholars conflate Adapa and the Apkallu known as Uanna/Oannes. There is some evidence for that connection, but the name “adapa” may have also been used as an epithet, meaning “wise”….but there are also other meanings… I have also added some information on the Sebetti Seven, happy learnings!
