"This is the Earth Spring. It is a sacred place protected by the power of the goddess. According to legend, the water here purifies the body of any life-form that comes into direct contact with it."

The Earth Spring is an underground spring located deep inside the Earth Temple. Link visits the spring while on his search for Zelda, who is said to be cleansing herself in the waters of the spring.[2] He encounters her at the spring and observes her playing the Goddess's Harp with a Servant of the Goddess named Impa. Impa scolds him for taking too long to reach the spring, and the two depart.[3] Link then performs another Skyward Strike on a Goddess Crest allowing Fi to receive another message from "the gods of old", which it begins to translate for the young hero.[4] Upon completion, the translation reveals that Zelda is heading to a region called the Lanayru Desert. As a gift from the gods, Link receives the Amber Tablet which creates a rift in the clouds leading to Lanayru Desert.

  2. "Master Link. It appears Zelda has cleansed herself in the waters of this fountain." — Fi (Skyward Sword)
  3. "It took you far too long to get here. Looking at you, I fear the goddess is mistaken in her choice of agents. If this failure is any indication, you have no hope of defending Her Grace from those who seek to assail her. Do my words anger you, boy? Do my words sting? Let them. If I had not come when I did, your Zelda would already have fallen into the hands of the enemy. The truth of it is you were late. You were late, and you failed to protect her. I sent Zelda ahead to learn more of the fate in which she is destined to play a part. Listen well, chosen one. If you wish to be of help to Her Grace, you must summon a shred of courage and face the trials laid out before you. Only when you've conquered the trials will you be of use to Zelda. No sooner. Am I understood?" — Impa (Skyward Sword)
  4. "From the edge of time I guide you, the one destined to carry out the goddess's mission. The spirit maiden who descended from the clouds has passed through the Earth Spring and makes her way to a fated place. The parched desert of Lanayru... That is where the chosen will pass through the Gate of Time into a distant world." — Fi (Skyward Sword)
