BELOW ARE PHOTOS AND A LITTLE HISTORY OF THE MAYANS

tHE MAYA NUMERALS AFTER TRANSLATION

BELOW Is a brief introduction to the mayan gods

Maya understanding and observation of Mother Nature, Earth's cycles, the Cosmos, life and death, play an

important role in their Spiritual and Religious beliefs. Even today, J-Men and Ix-Men, or Mayan Senior Healers

 or Priests, have a deep holistic connection with a dualistic life existence, which is beautifully expressed in

Maya Mythology, the Mayan Spiritual Realm, Healing Arts, and their ancestral Cosmo vision

or understanding of the Universe. If you wish to participate in a Mayan Sacred Ceremony, plan a trip to

 Chichen Itza, Yucatan, Mexico and stay at Hacienda Chichen where J-Men Mayan Senior Priests celebrate

 through out the Tolzkin Calendar year many sacred ceremonies and traditional rituals.

Maya civilization history flows in cycles of rise and fall periods, of continuity and change; guided by a holistic religion

 that still remains the foundation of their cultural traditions. The Maya vision of the universe is divided into multiple

 levels, above and below a flat Earth held by four Bacabs, (cardinal directions). The Sacred Tree of Life or Ceibais

 at the center of a complex communion of Celestial Gods and Underworld Deities living in Kibalba as

 represented in the Maya Foundation In Laakeech Cosmo-vision logo (above photo)..

DID YOU KNOW: The ancient Maya civilization is the highest cultural legacy of Mesoamerica. The Maya

 are believed to originate in the Yucatán around 2600 B.C. They developed the mathematical position of

 zero, along with a high understanding of astronomy, impressive intertwined Mayan calendar systems,

 majestic architectural achievements, and a complex hieroglyphic written combining phonetic suffixes,

 prefixes and detailed artistic symbols within its format.

MAYAN MYTHOLOGY, BACABS, AND COSMO-VISION

Mayan mythology is complex and has a truly rich context, placing corn as the creative nature of the Homo

 sapiens or humankind as we know it today. Mayan gods are characterized by the use of dual energies

 such as malevolence / benevolence; their associations changed according to the days in the Mayan

 calendar and the celestial bodies such as stars, planets and the cosmic positions of the Sun, Moon, and

 Venus as well as natural elements had their own representative god. Mayan deities are associated with

 numbers, crops, days of the Mayan calendar and periods of time.

Mayan Gods, deities and supernatural beings often display unique aspects of nature based often in

 correlation to the four Bacabs or Cardinal points and/or with the central earth position represented by the

 Ceiba tree. The Ceiba tree still holds the center position of all sacred Mayan rituals and spiritual

 ceremonies. This sacred Ceiba Tree is placed as a symbol of sacred life force, an energy vortex or

 interconnection between the Thirteen Heavens (inhabited by Gods and mythological deities dwell), our

 earth plane (where man, flora and fauna reside), and the Nine Underworlds (where death and night with

 the corresponding deities dwell).

The Maya understanding of the Cosmos attributes included Earth’s four primary compass directions or

 Cardinal points; the Maya associated each direction with a color and a particular Bacab or Bakab (the

 Mayan mythological sky-bearers and offspring of Itzamnaaj and Chak Chel). Each Bacab has a unique

 correlation with nature showcasing a shell, web, bee, and turtle; Jumnaju’ (creator Gods) placed each

Zac Cimi - bacab guarding the west, his assigned color is black and the Ix years.
.
Hozanek - bacab guarding the south, his assigned color is yellow and the Cauac yyears.

.

Hobnil - bacab guarding the east, his assigned color is red and the Kan years.
. */
Can Tzicnal - bacab guarding the north, his assigned color is white and the Muluc years
.
