Maria Makiling is a diwata or lambana (faerie or forest nymph) in Philippine mythology associated with Mount Makiling, Philippines. She is said to be the benefactor of the townspeople who depend on the mountain, as she is responsible for its bounties. It is said that the mountain resembles the profile of a woman, an image of Maria herself.
She is often depicted as one of three characters: a fierce protector of the forest surrounding the mountains, a provider known to give ginger that turns into gold to poor villagers, and a spurned lover afraid to love a mortal once more. Even today there are still reported sightings of her presence, from lost hikers, disappearances attributed to her presences, and students who go to the university at the foot of the mountain, University of the Philippines in Los Baños.
Translations (Filipino to English):
they are maria makiling
part, n./adj.: this is a part of my love, that I can never wholly receive anything from you - whether it be answers, time, or shelter - and that’s okay. [source of original text]
