There is an enormous amount of ancient spiritual texts in India and Asia and little in the west. I have read some of the Aztec Codex’s, but have not translated any so it is speculative on my part, but it is quite possibly they say something quite different from the current translations and promote the same philosophy as the Rigveda, the world’s oldest spiritual text. The Aztecs, Mayans, and Inca share a common origin, and since I have translated glyphs from the Mayan Temple of Inscriptions in Palenque and found the same teaching as the Rigveda, the knowledge of enlightenment, the probability is high that the Codex’s are the same. I believe the teaching on how to attain the title of a Buddha, an enlightened being, is the same in all the ancient spiritual texts of the world, whether in text or hieroglyphics.
The Aztecs, Mayans and Inca trace their culture to a “white” person who came from the east a long time ago, possibly during the last Golden Age that ended around 8,000 BC. He had a beard, wore a long white robe and taught about peace. The being was called Viracocha, or Votan to the Inca, Quetzalcoatl to the Aztecs, and Kukulkan to the Mayans. Viracocha was worshipped as the Creator, and it is said that after creating the universe and the sun and moon, he wandered the earth teaching to advance the people of the earth. He was the Founder of their civilization, and teacher, and I suspect was not a white person at all but someone glowing with light, similar to the Rishis, Buddhas, Magians, and Priest Kings of the east.
The words Quetzalcoatl and Kukulkan mean Plumed or Feathered Serpent. A plume can be a group of feathers or refer to an ornament, a feathery tuft of hair at the top of a headpiece for distinction. In the Sacred Sanskrit Texts of the east it is called a Kesha, a tuft of hair at the crown of the head is attained on becoming enlightened, a mark of distinction. Kukulkan brought the calendar, writing, mathematics, astronomy, and so on to the Mayans; really, he brought them all the great accomplishments they are credited with. He also taught them to go toward the disabled, the blind, and the poor to help and to treat them with kindness. It is said that during the time the Teacher was around, there were no conflicts and no need for weapons.
By the time modern day conquerors starting arriving in the west in the 1500’s the knowledge contained in the Codex’s, and upon the walls of the Temple of Inscriptions were not decipherable. The Aztec and Mayans had no idea what the inscriptions said, in fact, the true teaching had been long forgotten just like that of the Bible, the Rigveda, the Avesta, the Pali Texts, Upanishads, and so on.
It is curious how the knowledge of enlightenment disappeared upon the earth, and probably vanished well before the advent of Kaliyuga in 700 BC, the Dark Age of Humanity. Whatever the case, we are fortunate to be out of that and into a new era, and something curious happened, the philosophy of enlightenment has returned for those who are interested. Here is a verse from the Veda to enjoy the day with your Creator in heavenly bliss.
The flames are unquenchable and mighty as the Eternal beautifies the home like a woman for shining with a wonderful luster, and what appears whitish to people is the most splendorous golden vehicle.
