Ma'at:

"Ma'at refers to both the ancient Egyptian concepts of: truth, balance, order, harmony, law, morality, and justice, and the personification of these concepts as a Goddess - regulating the stars, seasons, and the actions of both mortals and the deities, who set the order of the Universe from Chaos at the moment of Creation." [1]

.

"Upholding the Order of the Universe was the Pharaoh's primary responsibility, and many bore the title 'Beloved of Ma'at'.

She is also known by her headdress composed of a feather of truth; and in the underworld, the heart of the deceased was weighed on a balance scale before Osiris - against that feather to detect the weight of the deceased's sins.

.

Ma'at is the symbolic embodiment of world order, justice, righteousness, correctness, harmony and peace. She is a form of the Goddess Aset, who represents wisdom and spiritual awakening through balance and equanimity.

.

Ma'at is a philosophy, a spiritual symbol as well as a cosmic energy or force which pervades the entire Universe." [2]
