Abstract

In Mesopotamia, man cannot separate from the divinity, he is always connected to her, but that connection needs means and channels to cross. Perhaps the beginning of these means is prayer, which aims above all to glorify the sacred and then to pray to him so that man can reveal what is inside To the gods, and asked her to fulfill his desires;.

If prayer represents the moral aspect of that relationship, sacrifice is the material aspect through which man can bribe the gods and motivate them to achieve what he wants; sacrifice is the material means imposed on the human being created for the service of the gods.

Incense is the third pillar of communication between humans and the sacred. It helps the worshiper to reach a state of harmony with the higher powers, and he performs a strong spiritual activity during worship.

If the first three means provided by humans to the gods, there are two means of equal importance to make man in constant contact with the world of divinity, the first: the existence of his personal God, which represents the bond that always exists between him and the great gods; The second, being the Son of the Gods.

The existence of gods on earth is one of the necessary means of communication, but this presence will be only through the vessel containing the body of God, that is through his statue. Thus, the kings of Mesopotamia make the statue of God, to ensure the existence of gods on their land.

Dreams and divinity are a means of communication between the world of men and gods. Through them the two sides speak, through which people know the will and desires of the gods.
