glossary

One of the most important surviving sacred books of the Quiche Maya is called the Popol Vuh or “council book.” It is set up in three parts; first it describes the creation of earth and its inhabitants, second it describes the lives and stories of the Hero Twins (Xbalanque and Hunahpu), and third it describes the Mayan dynasties. This book is the Mayan equivalent of the Judeo-Christian Genesis and is written Kabbalistically. See: Xbalanque

QUOTE OF THE DAY

"Tremendous is the effort and the vigilance that is needed from second to second, from moment to moment, in order to not fall into illusions. One minute of unawareness is enough for the mind to be already dreaming about something else, distracting it from the job or deed that we are living at the moment."
