    MYTHOLOGICAL GODS

    Mayan Goddess


    The ancient Maya had a complex pantheon of deities whom they worshipped and offered human sacrifices. Rulers were believed to be descendants of the Mayan gods and their blood was the ideal sacrifice, either through personal bloodletting or the sacrifice of captives of royal blood.

    The Maya vision of the universe is divided into multiple levels, above and below earth, positioned within the four directions of north, south, east and west. After death, the soul was believed to go to the Underworld, Xibalba (shee bal bah), a place of fright where sinister gods tested and tricked their unfortunate visitors.


    As with all Myths about Mayan Gods and Goddesses - Mayan Myths discuss connections with being from other realms who came to Earth to seed the planet.

    Many people see the story of the Popol Vuh is the story of extraterrestrial Gods who came down and made man in his own image. When they first made man he was so perfect - living as long as they did - he could see far and wide - clairvoyant - and was as perceptive as they were.

    They realized that they had made a competitor who was as wise as the Gods themselves. So they destroyed him and started over creating present day man. Modern man lives shorter lifetimes, is not as smart, and is here to act as a servant race to the Gods.

    Within their culture they have legends of visiting Gods from outer space. In the last thousand years the being known as Quatzequatl the Great Feathered Serpent was a God who brought the teaching of peace to this part of the world and appeared as a white God with a beard. The drawings of him look almost identical to the drawings of the being known as Ea or Enki in the ancient Sumerian teachings.

    In fact they looked like the images we see of Reptilians.


    Quatzequatel: Winged God

    Mayan god Thoth and Quetzacotal were the same person, Thoth was identified to Atlantis, Egypt, Sumer, then later was identified to Meso America and Peru as Quetzacoatal.

    His pyramid was the Pyramid of the Sun in Teotihuacan

    Chac

    mayan god Chac

    Mayan god Chac was the god of rain. He was a benevolent god for the Mayans who often sought his help for their crops. Chac was associated with creation and life. Chac was also considered to be divided into four equal entities. Each division represented the North, South, East, and West. Chac was also apparently associated with the wind god, Kukulcan. Some debate persists as to whether or not Kukulcan was just a variotion of Chac.




    Another Sun God - Kinich Ahau

    god Kinich Ahau

    Kinich Ahau was the Sun god. He was the patron god of the city Itzamal. Supposedly, he visited the city at noon everday. He would descend as a macaw and consume prepared offerings. Kinich Ahau is usually shown with jaguar-like features (ex. filed teeth). Kinich Ahau also wears the symbol of Kin, a Mayan day. Kinich Ahau was also know by the name Ah Xoc Kin, who was associated with poetry and music.




    Yumil Kaxob

    Yumil Kaxob

    The Maize god is representative of the ripe grain which was the base of the Mayan agriculture. In certain areas of Mesoamerica, like Yucatan, the Maize god is combined with the god of flora, Yumil Kaxob. The Maize god is principally shown with a headdress of maize and a curved streak on his cheek. He is also noticeable from other gods throug his youth. Despite this youth, the Maize god was powerless by himself. His fortunes and misfortunes were decided by the control of rain and drought. The Rain god would protect him. However, he suffered when the Death god exercised drought and famine.




    Yum Cimil

    Yum Cimil

    The death god was called Yum Cimil. He also could be called Ah Puch, the god of the Underworld. His body is predominantly skeletal. His adornments are likewise made of bones. Yum Cimil has also been represented with a body covered with black spots (decomposition). He also wears a collar with eyeless sockets. This adornment was the typical symbol for the Underworld.




    Ixtab

    mayan gods - Ixtab

    The suicide goddess was called Ixtab. She is always represented with a rope around her neck. The Mayans believed that suicides would lead you to heaven. Hence, it was very common for suicides to happen because of depression or even for something trivial.




    Kukulcan

    Kukulcan

    The wind god was also known as the feathered-serpent god Kukulcan.

    The ancient Mayans used the doorways and windows of their buildings as astronomical sightings, especially for the planet Venus.

    At Uxmal, all buildings are aligned in the same direction. Surprisingly, Mayans knew the motions of Venus with much accuracy.

    Venus, the morning star, was the patron planet of warfare. Many offerings were made to Venus and the Sun.We know from a historian that people would stop up their chimneys so that no light from Venus could enter their houses and cause harm.




    Ix Chel

    Ix Chel

    Ix Chel, the "Lady Rainbow," was the old Moon goddess in Mayan mythology. The Maya people lived around 250 AD in what is now Guatemala and the Yucatan in Mexico. Mayans associated human events with phases of the moon.

    Ix Chel was depicted as an old woman wearing a skirt with crossed bones, and she had a serpent in her hand. She had an assistant sky serpent, whom they believed carried all of the waters of the heavens in its belly. She is often shown carrying a great jug filled with water, which she overturns to send floods and powerful rainstorms to Earth.

    Her husband was the benevolent moon god Itzamna. Ix Chel had a kinder side and was worshipped as the protector of weavers and women in childbirth.




    Ah Kinchil: the Sun god.

    Ah Puch: the god of Death.

    Ahau Chamahez: one of two gods of Medicine.

    Ahmakiq: a god of Agriculture who locks up the wind when it threatens to destroy the crops.

    where did you get allthis info?

    RYAN, 15/10:
    Why is there no mention that Kukulcan was a real person and was a white man with a white beard. The only human God to the Mayans. This is common knowledge in Mesoamerica as I have been down there several times and spoke to Mayans personally. It seems like many people who are writing columns on Mayan Gods lately are omiting this fact. Lets not re-wrire history folks.

    Upper, 08/01:
    Nice pictures of gods!

    Annonymous, 16/12:
    The way that I see it for the dual purposes of the gods, is that one is worhsipped in one place, and when that god is trying to expand its popularity and have others worship him, people change his/her name and his/her role, so say someone in Canada had a god called Niku, and he was the god of water, if he went to America, it could be changed to Nicha, and he could be the god of earth... might help or might not, but that is my understanding of it

    dillicious, 13/12:
    OMG this site is amazing b i a t ch . thanks for the awsome info man . DILLICIOUS WAS HERE lol
