Especially when we are speaking about yanantin , pachacuti for me is the coming back of the highly enlightened and highly evolved soul—not only into humanity but also into all areas of life on our planet. It is not necessarily a reverse, but it is definitely a huge transition. It is a return of a certain essence that will bring the transformation to our planet that we need. Pachacuti for me is the return of that great soul. After saying goodbye to Juan Luis, Amado and I left the restaurant.
We made our way across the Plaza to his car. From there we sped up the mountain road out of town, dodging stray dogs and small children as we went.
Yanantin and Masintin in the Andean world : complementary dualism in modern Peru / Hillary S. Webb
Along the way we passed the Inca fortress of Sacsayhuaman and the multitude of tourists crowding around the giant stone structure. About a half a mile later, Amado pulled the car over to the side of the road and hopped out. I was breathing heavily by the time I caught up to him. Amado put out his hand and helped me up onto the rock.
Smiling broadly, he threw his arms open wide. But look! Erosion had not faded it. Had he not been with me, pointing it out, I am sure I never would have seen the figures carved into the stone surface. But there they were. Once seen, it was impossible to un-see them. On each side of the rock, one on the right and one on the left, were the outline of two pumas. Between the pumas were two birds.
Above and below these images were two snakes. The carvings were raised above the surface of the rock, in some ways easier to feel than to see. That represents the North. North Puma is said to be unconscious. It is sleeping. Sleeping is considered very sacred here. Sometimes only when you are asleep are you in complete connection with all the energies. And look at its belly! It is pregnant! It is pregnant, so it must sleep in order to wake up. When it wakes up, it will be capable of anything, any transformation.
When it wakes up, the North Puma will change the planet. South Puma is the warrior. It is protecting Pachamama. To bring pachacuti to the world. Because already we know how the North and especially the United States affects the whole world. Anything that is done, anything that is said, arrives even to the most hidden corners of our planet. Fashion, music, English, the American dream. So whatever happens in the North will also arrive not only in the shape of fashion or American culture but also in energy. For that reason, it is said that when North Puma wakes up, even the color of the sky will change.
He pointed at the two birds. You can tell the difference between them because the wings of the eagle point backwards, while the wings of the condor are straight. The eagle represents the North and the condor the South. The prophecy says that the condor and the eagle always fly together. Like now, with this process that you and I are doing together. He moved around the rock to get an alternate view. The one for the South is rooted in Pachamama and has such respect for Pachamama.
My people are in love with Mother Earth and love doing ceremonies and offerings. The serpent on the left represents the North. The serpent of the North is not coming from Mother Earth. Instead, the North Serpent represents the inner world. It represents consciousness and things psychological. Even in the indigenous communities of the North, the Native Americans, only speak a little about Mother Earth.
