Temple of Kukulkan (Serpent)

Temple Of Kukulcan (Serpent)

In the 1980s, Chichen
Itza began to receive an influx of visitors on
the day of the spring equinox. Today several
thousand show up to see the light-and-
shadow effect on the Temple of Kukulcan in
which the feathered serpent god supposedly
can be seen to crawl down the side of the
pyramid. “A serrated line of seven
interlocking triangles (chakras) gives the
impression of a long tail leading downward to
the stone head of the serpent Kukulkan
(Kundalini), at the base of the stairway.”
“The Mayan masters teach that we are the
integration of the seven powers of light,
traveling in the form of the serpent,
undulating eternally with movement and
measure. In Mayan, the pyramid is called
k’u, the root word for the sacred Hunab K’u,
the Only Giver of Movement and Measure.
Thus, when we see the seven triangles in
Chichen Itza during the equinoxes, we are
witnessing a demonstration of culture which
pervades the atmosphere and stones of
this sacred place. With respect and humility,
we should kneel before the presence of
Kukulcan or Quetzalcoatl. By so doing, we will
begin to awaken our cosmic consciousness,
allowing Hunab K’u to enter the sacred
temples in our bodies!” – Hunbatz Men,
Secrets of Mayan Science and Religion p.126.

“The Temple of Kukulkan (the Feathered Serpent God, also known as Quetzalcoatl) is the largest and most important ceremonial structure at Chichen Itza. This ninety-foot tall pyramid was built during the eleventh to thirteenth centuries directly upon the multiple foundations of previous temples. The pyramid is a store-house of information on the Mayan calendar…. The northern stairway was the principal sacred path leading to the summit. At sunset on the vernal and autumnal equinoxes, an interplay between the sun’s light and the edges of the stepped terraces on the pyramid creates a fascinating—and very brief—shadow display upon the sides of the northern stairway. A serrated line of seven interlocking triangles (chakras) gives the impression of a long tail leading downward to the stone head of the serpent Kukulkan (Kundalini), at the base of the stairway.” (Linda Casselman)

So then, on these two very important dates, the vernal and autumnal equinoxes, it appears that Quetzalcoatl is indeed present among his people as the shadow of the serpent moves along the steps of the Pyramid of Kulkulkan.
