The Ceremony of the Goddess is a ceremony that takes place in Skyward Sword.
In it, an individual playing the Goddess gives the champion of the Wing Ceremony a Sailcloth. The champion must then prove their courage by leaping from a tall structure, before opening the Sailcloth to arrest their fall only at the last moment. It is said to have been played out since ancient times.
The ceremony seen in Skyward Sword takes place on the Statue of the Goddess, and together with the Wing Ceremony commemorates the twenty-fifth anniversary of the opening of the Knight Academy. Zelda takes the role of the Goddess, while Link is the champion being presented with a Sailcloth which Zelda made herself.
"Great goddess, guiding light and protector of our people, grant us your blessing and mercy as I act in your stead during this ceremony.
Valiant youth who grasped victory at the celebration of the bird folk... In accordance with the old ways...
I now bestow the blessings of the goddess upon you.
The blessings of the goddess drift down from the heavens aloft a sail, which I now pass on to you."
She then gives Link the Sailcloth.
Afterwards, she shoves Link off the ledge over a large amount of stone carvings. Link must then land exactly inside the outermost circle. If Link fails, he must restart the jump, and this time, Zelda will not push Link, and Link must jump on his own.
