He is ("good, kind God"), in Irish mythology, one of the gods of the Tribes of the goddess Danu, the owner of the cauldron of abundance. He, the character of many Old Irish legends, embodied the traits that the Celts endowed with the omnipotent representatives of the kingdom of the dead, the divine rulers of the world.
His was portrayed as a giant with a mighty club, which was sometimes taken after him in a cart. It was believed that with one end of his weapon he could kill, and with the other, revive the dead to life.
He appears as a god who patronizes good harvests and has unlimited power over natural phenomena. So, according to legend, he could control a thunderstorm, lightning, hail, rain, etc.
He was considered a wise, omniscient sorcerer and a great warrior. He demanded unquestioning obedience and led the Tribes of the goddess Danu into battle, defeating anyone who dared to contradict him.
The god owned the "Undying Cauldron" - one of the four main treasures of the people of the goddess Danu. According to legends, in this bottomless cauldron, everyone found food for themselves by their merits, and therefore no one was ever dissatisfied, and Dаgdа himself was considered a great lover and tireless eater of oatmeal, and the cauldron was never empty.
For this cauldron, God had a large ladle in which two people could fit. He had two pigs, one of which was always growing, and the other was always roasted in a fire, and an abundant harvest on all fruit trees.Dаgdа - Celtic god, the embodiment of the power of the world of the dead and the recreation of internal energy for the living
Keeper of the gates of time and who wants to help the common man. Not every Celtic god could have received such a look. Therefore, only the chosen pantheons of the gods could simultaneously relate to the forces of the other world and give strength to the living.
