The Mayan Book of Destiny of Chilam Balam in 2012
In the Discovery Channel documentary about Chilam Balam and 2012, it is explained that, “The word of the gods has become unintelligible, or those gods have stopped talking,” wrote Todorov, who picks up a heart rendering question that is repeated untiringly and without answer in the Mayan Book of Chilam Balam, at the end of the book in unsolved terms: “Who will be the prophet, who will be the priest who shall interpret truly the word of this book?”
Written long after the Spanish Conquest, during the 18th century, the prophecies of The Book of Chilam Balam were retrospective: “These things will be fulfilled, nobody will be able to stop them; it is necessary to love those words as the precious stones are loved, because they speak to us of the new changes.”
The Book of Chilam Balam of Chumayel narrates an original myth similar to the Popol Vuh, where the gods of the infraworld ruled and held the universe captive.
In an apocalyptic way, like other messianic stories of the time of the conquest, The Book of Chilam Balam recounts the destruction and rebirth of the nine levels of the infraworld and thirteen skies, the robbery of the Great Serpent, the deterioration of the sky, and the collapse of the Earth.
We made an interpretation of the Chilam Balam books because of our relationship with Lord Pakal Ahau as we know he is also the designated leader of the Ancient Order of Chilam Balam and its Nine Degrees, a spiritual organization which created his birth in 1952 at the time Dr. L’huillier discovered the enigmatic tomb of King Pakal of Palenque.
According to the book Days of Destiny: Cosmic Prophecies for the 21st Century by Robert Ghost Wolf (2003, pp.175), he quotes that, “there is one occurrence which would also agree in approximate time line with the Toltec prophecy of the return of Quetzalcoatl in the 13th Toltec Era. This is, as yet to come, only partially understood as we must again look at the holistic picture. There is the implication in the Chilam Balam books indicating that there would be a coming of two great Prophets, one right after the other!
The Chilam Balam priests explain, “One goes forth as an emissary. Another awakens Itzamna Kauil (God of the Heavens). There will apparently be at least two important Lords who manifest themselves at this time, one as an ambassador, preparing the way, and the other appearing as the one who gives the world-uniting philosophy of the Mayas.”
From this interesting explanation we want to differentiate the Two Prophets because we know the 2012 Mayan Prophecy is proceeding according to Chilam Balam timeline. In 1987, there were two human manifestations that appeared almost simultaneouly. Both persons call themselves 2012 Time Witnesses for a specific reason. (1) The first occurrence was under the person of Dr. Jose Arguelles publishing his book, The Mayan Factor: Path Beyond Technology as he continues as an ambassador of the Maya knowledge, and (2) the second manifestation represented by our Lord Pakal Ahau, the Director of our Pakalian Group of Mexico, publishing his Trilogy website and explaining his spiritual work as Chilam Balam predicted, initiated by the original concept of Mayan matrices mathematics, which gained a lot of attention in CERN scientific circles. Later, Lord Pakal Ahau published the final revelation known as Mayan Palingenesis: The Reincarnation Principle in 2004, and a further revision of the Tortuguero Monument 6 of the 2012 Prophecy in 2007.
Notice how Chilam Balam is so right, when he writes: “”The Nine (Bolon Yokte Ku) Gods shall arise in sorrow, alas… And when over the dark sea, I shall be lifted up in a chalice of fire, to that generation there will come the day of withered fruit, there will be rain. The face of the sun shall be extinguished because of the great tempest. Then finally the ornaments shall descend in heaps, there will be good gifts for one and all, as well as lands, from the Great Spirit, wherever they shall settle down. Presently Baktun 13 shall come sailing, figuratively speaking, bringing the ornaments of which I have spoken from your ancestors. Then the god will come to visit his little ones. Perhaps “After Death” will be the subject of his discourse.”” The paragraph prophecizes correctly the work of Lord Pakal Ahau as Lord Pakal deciphered Tortuguero Monument 6 mentioning Bolon Yokte Ku and revealing an after death Maya ancient ritual technique to perform the transmigration of the soul to a newborn. The predictions cannot be more clear now.
We believe these occurrences are not a coincidence, but the culmination of the accurate prophecies made by the great Mayan genius of the Chilam Balam astronomers-priests. Is it a coincidence of what Chilam Balams wrote? We think not.
NOTES FROM THE EDITOR: In the Book of Chilam Balam of Chumayel by Ralph L. Roys (1930), that appears online (link above), reference 165:5 explains Kauil is an obsolete word meaning food. Cf. kauilyah, to beg for food (Motul Dictionary). It also appears to be the name of a god as in Itzamna Kauil. Kauil is also a common family name in Yucatan. However, this partial description does not correspond with the term Itzamna Kauil. Lord Pakal Ahau made a clarification from the Maya language today that the Yucatec term Kauil applies to Itzamna Kawiil, meaning the symbol of the Royal Ruling Scepter of the Maya Kings transferred to each dynasty by divine rights.
MORE RECENT NOTES FROM THE EDITOR: It is with deep regret to announce that Dr. Jose Arguelles passed away on March 23, 2011 at age 72. Our condolences to his family and friends. Lord Pakal Ahau said, “we have lost a Maya ambassador and a 2012 emissary. Nonetheless, his memory will live in the 2012 consciousness forever. Do not doubt about his work “. Well, that comment leaves Lord Pakal Ahau as the only Time Witness of the Chilam Balam prophecy as the Mayan prophet wrote centuries ago. Interesting development of the 2012 final prophecy that we couldn’t anticipate but I’m sure Lord Pakal Ahau in his visions knew the outcome. Long live Arguelles!
