The “Flower Prince” Aztec deity. He was seen as the god of flowers and music. Statues portray him seated upon a drum, with his legs crossed like a meditator from the east, his face looking up to the sky in prayer, and his hands in a pleading position. Samael Aun Weor states in Aztec Christic Magic: “Xochipilli: xochitl, ‘flower;’ pilli, ‘principle;’ God of agriculture, flowers, music, song, poetry and dance. ‘Flowers and chants are the most elevated things that exist on the earth so as to enter into the ambits of the truth;’ this is what the Tlamatinime taught in the Calmecac. This is why all their philosophy is tinted with the most pure poetic tinge. The face of Xochipilli is impassible; yet, his heart is overflowing with happiness.” His festivals were called “Xochilhutl” and were held in the Calmecac. See: Calmecac

QUOTE OF THE DAY

"The most elevated form of thinking is non-thinking. When one achieves the stillness and silence of the mind, the “I” with all its passions, dens, appetites, fears, affections, etc. becomes absent. It is only in the absence of the “I,” in the absence of the mind, that the Buddhata can awaken to unite with the Inner Self and take us to ecstasy."
