Au rin is a feminine deity of the Morning Star in the Lithuanian mythology. She is the antipode to Vakarin , the Evening Star. Her cult possibly stems from the Proto-Indo-European religion and is related to Latvian Auseklis, Greek Eos, Roman Aurora, and Vedic Ushas. Au rin is the goddess of beauty and youth. After the Christianization of Lithuania, the cult merged with Christian image and symbolism of Saint Mary. Au rin was first mentioned by Jan asicki as Ausca and described as goddess of the rays of the sun that descend and rise above the horizon. According to folklore, each morning Au rin and her servant Tarnaitis prepare the way for Saul .
