The 8 Calendars of the Maya: The Pleiadian Cycle and the Key to Destinyby Hunbatz Men
Synopses & Reviews
Mayan daykeeper Hunbatz Men reveals the multi-calendar system of the Maya that guided the lives of his ancestors and how it can guide us today andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt;andbull; The first book to reveal the secrets of the Mayan Pleiades calendar: the Tzekandrsquo;eb andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt;andbull; Explains how the Maya used their astronomical knowledge to guide their lives on Earth andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt;The Mayan Calendar has taken on special prominence with the imminent arrival of 2012, a date that many claim is the end of that calendar. However, as Mayan elder and daykeeper Hunbatz Men shows, the cosmological understanding of his ancestors was so sophisticated that they had not one, but many calendars, each based on the cycles of different systems in the cosmos. In this book he reveals for the first time the Tzekandrsquo;eb, or Pleiades, Calendar of 26,000 years, which charts the revolution of our solar system around Alcyone, the central star of the Pleiades system. He also discusses the Kandrsquo;uukandrsquo;ulcan Calendar of the 4 seasons of the solar year and the wheel of the Kandrsquo;altunes Calendar, which is composed of 13 cycles of 20 years each that form a calendar of 260 years. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt;In traditional Mayan culture the computation of time was not determined by simple economic or social motives. The calendars served the higher purpose of synchronizing the lives of human beings and their societies to the great cosmic pulsation, to the rhythm of the annual seasons, and to the other cycles that dictate changes upon Earth. Mayan understanding of the cosmic cycles was so exact that this knowledge could be used to influence all stages of life--from planning when to conceive (parents could choose not only the sex of their child but its vocation and future destiny) to plotting out the course of the entire society. Pyramids played a crucial role in applying this wisdom because, as Hunbatz Men shows, they were able to produce and transform energy in accordance with the cosmic cycles charted by the calendars. This book reveals for the first time the wisdom of the multi-calendar Mayan system and how it can help guide our modern world.
Maya daykeeper Men reveals for the first time a calendar that charts the revolution of our solar system around the central star of the Pleiades. He also shows the role of pyramids in transforming energy in accordance with cosmic cycles.
