Ma'at (Maet, Mayet)
is the Egyptian goddess of truth, justice and the underworld, and wears the feather, symbol of truth, on her head. She passed judgement over the
souls of the dead in the Judgement Hall of Osiris. The "Law of Mayet" was the basis of civil laws in ancient Egypt.
"The Mother"; "Lady of the Judgment Hall"; the Virgin; cherished daughter of Ra and wife of Thoth. Her law governed the three worlds; even the
other gods had to obey ("live by Maat". In the Hall of Double Justice where Osiris held his tribunal, Maat stood in one pan of the balance scale
opposite the heart of the deceased when it was tested for truthfulness. There were 42 Assessors or Judges of Maat who passed judgment on souls. The
heart had to be empty of evil to balance the feather weight on the scales. She was often pictured wearing an ostrich feather on her head while
standing or sitting on her heels; she held a scepter and ankh. Associated with Thoth. Goddess of truth, right, justice, law, final judgment of human
soul, order, divine order, reincarnation.
