I had the good fortune of reading the Popol Vuh under the tutelage of Dennis himself and there really is no way to describe the detail and the power of the text I highly recommend to pay special attention to every single symbol every picture in the book no matter how small or minor because each one bears an important insight into the Mayan culture For example on page 107 there is a picture of a dancing monkey with uill pins bunched atop his head The Maya consider monkeys to be their patrons and uills indicate writing so reflecting on the image and its placement in the story gives the reader an insight into how the Maya perceive themselves in relation to the world

Allen J Christenson has given us a brilliant translation packed with very helpful notes of the Popol Vuh the Sacred Book of the uich Maya the book that pertains to the mat The mat is the royal throne upon which the king gave counsel to his people with the fibers symbolizing the interlaced community remembered in the textThis is a personal book for me because if family legend is to be believed the distant ancestors of my Ecuadorian relatives might have come through the area of Guatemala where the Popol Vuh was finally recorded by anonymous priests to survive the purges of the Conuistadors We trace the family tree down from the Dawn of Creation Tikib a is literally to plant and so in the beginning was literally the planting with xe root used here to describe the foundation of the authors words concerning the history of the uich people The subseuent narrative is seen as growing like a plant from this rootThe Gods here are not the Neoplatonic abstractions of Christianity tainted by abstract Greek philosophy instead they are explicitly anthropomorphic the actual ancestors of our spirits the shining Shapers and Modelers who descended from the darkness to organize the world out of preexisting material The Divine Parents are Xmucane and Xpiyacoc I yom and K ajolom in uiche the Mother and Father I yom was She Who Has Borne Children the title of the goddess implies that she assists in the birth of the world There are five stages in their attempts to create humanity with numerous false starts Finally life arises in the brackish waters and agriculture supports the creation of humans Maize in particular is shown to create our bodies entering into the flesh of humanity by means of the descendants of She Who Has Borne Children and He Who Has Begotten Sons the Framer and the Shaper The daughters of Xmucane act as the creative power that prepares the maize dough and forms it into a suitable framework to contain the essence of mankind the uniue ability of the female to form living flesh is thus emphasized Yet the man and woman are not described as carrying out separate roles rather they act in concert and speak with one voice Their activities are remembered in the performance of the text of the Popol Vuh as a Ritual Drama Great is its performance and its account of the completion and germination of all the sky and earth its four corners and its four sides All then was measured and staked out into four divisions doubling over and stretching the measuring cords of the womb of sky and the womb of earth Indeed the ancient Maya conceived of the universe as a great house The four corners represent the cardinal directions while its walls and ceiling form the vault of the sky with the foundation posts forming the boundaries of the underworld much like a miniature version of the map made of a Temple The maize plant is often depicted as a divine axis mundi standing at the center point of the universe with its roots extending downward into the underworld while its stalk reaches into the sky Behold us Hear us Do not abandon us You are the god in the sky and on the earth you Heart of Sky Heart of Earth May our sign our word be given for as long as there is sun and light Etal sign and tzijel word as well as the act of lighting a candle or torch when paired together refer to the posterity of children and grandchildrenSo when their children are sacrificed in the ballcourt to the Lords of Death all of Xibalba the Place of Fear perceived the greatness of the essence of the calabash tree which resurrected One Hunahpu s head The virgin Lady Blood heard the story from her father and asked Can I not come to know it by seeing the Tree that has been spoken of I hear that its fruit is truly delicious She goes to converse with One Hunahpu s Tree which causes her to become pregnant though her father tries to sacrifice her for the supposed sin she escapes and bears the children of the Tree who travel to the Underworld to overcome mortality Christenson notes The cycle of birth death and rebirth is one of the most prominent motifs in ancient Mesoamerican art and literature The Maya saw death as a necessary part of life For maize to grow and produce a seed must first die and be buried in the earth It was thus necessary for One Hunahpu to descend into the underworld to die before a new generation could appear and be capable of overcoming death The maiden Lady Blood stood as an intermediary As the daughter of one of the principal lords of death she belonged to the darkness of the underworld As the consort of One Hunahpu she had the potential to create new life from deathNext comes a cycle of animal stories in an allegorical seuence of louse toad serpent and falcon signifying decay death rebirth and apotheosis as sun and moon The corrupting louse is swallowed by the fertile underworld toad swallowed by the regenerating snake swallowed by the falcon who flies into the dawn Death swallowed by Hunahpu and his brother Xbalanue who triumph over the Lords of Xibalba whose hidden names they have discovered whose deadly ballgame they have won and whose many houses of horrific trials they have passed through alive only to knowingly die and be resurrected in various forms chosen orphan boys fish people dancing in front of the Lords of Death This fulfills the prophecy of Lady Blood who told them that one day they would no longer be allowed to take human hearts in sacrifice but would take the blood of trees rather than that of the Children of Light The brothers come to dwell in the sky arising as the central stars of a constellation Their children cross the great sea from the land in the East where the first People were conceived and there they looked for the coming forth of the sun when they had one common language and did not yet call upon wood or stone However many nations there are today innumerable people they all had but one dawn The Dawn begins beautifully but then descends once into human sacrifice as if it were holy with countless tribes which should be family attacking each other any way they can including plagues of insects After generations of horrific bloodshed the Spaniards arrive in force and officially establish Roman Catholicism against great protest in 1534 in order to wipe out whatever idolatry and paganism might have survived the purges of the conuest itself As a member of the LDS church which believes in a Mother and Father God who have physical forms just as the Maya did I have great trouble thinking that the violence and book burning of the conuest was exactly a Christian act we believe that true Christianity was lost long before Arius and Athanasius occasioned the great Councils to establish the Creeds which focused on the disembodied abstractions of philosophers rather than the living Gods and the Divine Council formed of their family Thankfully there were other Priests such as Bartolom de las Casas who vigorously opposed the slaughters of Alvarado The book ends in dark tragedy and tortures in which there are precious few good guys the human sacrifices made in the name of a twisted version of the early Maya religion were hardly better than the slaughter brought by the conuistadors take your pick as to which people were the worse transgressors in the name of their Gods And so this is the essence of the uich s because there is no longer a way of seeing the vision of it It was with the Lords at first but it is now lost There is only this All is now completed concerning uich called Santa Cruz
