Pajau Yan

A benevolent goddess of health, healing, happiness, and good fortune. She initially lived on earth but because she healed and raised the dead she was sent to the moon by Po Jata. There, she honors the sun by a lunar eclipse and provides flowers for the dead to ease their transition from life to death. People bring her offerings on the first day of the waning moon.
