The Mayan Meaning of A Winakena

We have received some email asking for the meaning of the expression A WINAKENA above Lord Pakal Ahau’s image. It is a beautiful greetings sentence and perhaps, one of the most humble Mayan hieroglyphs in our native language. It means: ‘I’m Your Servant.’

In the Dictionary of Mayan Hieroglyphs is the catalog number T229. We also love that our language is identified with numbers. Perhaps, Mayan scholars should start a numbered catalog of English phrases in a special dictionary that contain idioms. Just our thought!
