Mayan Civilization Shiva’s Ear Rings Vishnu Pada Navagraha

I have posted article on the Tamils influence on the Incas,that the ancestors of the Incas were from Tami Nadu.


Of the Mesoamerican Cultures, the Incas were spread in the pre-Columbian America, while the Mayans were  in the

Southern Mexican states of Chiapas, Tabasco, and the Yucatán Peninsulastates of Quintana Roo, Campeche and Yucatán; The Maya area also extended throughout the northern Central American region, including the present-day nations of Guatemala, Belize, western Honduras and extreme northern El Salvador.

Both these cultures worship the Sun as in Hinduism.

Bothe built Temples for the deceased.

Their temple,Pyramid temple architecture  resembles Indian Temple architecture.

Mayan and Inca calendars bear a striking similarity to Indian Traditional calendar.

Now more on Maya.

Lord Shiva wears an Earring.

One of His distinguishing mark is the  Earring.

Gnana Sambhandar began his Poetic work, when he was a child, on Shiva, with the first Line ‘ One who wears the earring’


‘தோடுடைய  செவியன்’


Shiva wears the Serpent as His Earring.

The design is unique to Him.

In the Ardhanarewara Form of Shiva,Shiva occupies the Right portion while Devi, the Left.

On the right portion belonging to Shiva, He wears the serpent, used as a rope for churning out the Ocean od Milk, as His earring.

One may recall that in the Akhilandeswari Temple, Thiruvanaikaval, near Srirangam, Devi wears the Earstud  given by Shankaracharya.

This thotakam is unique in this Temple.

This  type of earring of Shiva is worn by women in Tamil Nadu, even today in villages.

These are called Pampadam.

This is unique to Indian Culture and is found , apart from Indians, among the Mayans and Easter island.


Now to the Nahua People in Easter island.

Navagrahas in Mayan civilisation.

In one intricate Mayan story, two brothers, One Hunahpu and Seven Hunahpu are playing ball, and annoy Death with their noisiness. The Lords of Death challenge them to a game, but first they must pass the six tests of Xibalba – passing through the 6 Houses: Dark House, Razor House, Rattling House, Jaguar House, Fire House, and Bat House (glyphs to the left). Failing any of the tests results in death. They do fail and are sacrificed in the morning – at “The Place of the Ball Game Sacrifice.” One Hunahpu’s head is placed on a tree, which later tree bears fruit, but Xibalbans forbid anyone to eat that fruit. Blood Gatherer, though, does and is banished. Later she has twins – the children of One Hunahpu, named Hunahpu and Xbalenque 6, who later become the Sun and Moon.


The Nine Mayan Gods (Bolontiku) are the principle deities having dominion over the area of Central America from the Isthmus of Tehuantepec to the Isthmus of Panama. To the indigenous people of the Mayan area, the Bolontiku have historically fulfilled a cultural role with their power, wisdom, sanction and protection were invoked for all earthly and spiritual transactions – for healing, divination, success in agriculture, trade, politics and war; for help in personal matters such as love, childbearing, grief; for carrying (telepathic) messages over distance; and so on.

Sophisticated mathematics allowed the Ah Kinob to conceive of a universe regular in its rhythms. In its simplicity, the Mayan number system employed only three characters – a dot symbolizing unity, a bar representing the number five, and an eye-shaped glyph representing zero. Mayan numbers were written vertically and divided into tiers, with the characters in each tier of the column having a value twenty times that of the characters in the tier directly beneath them. Summing the values of the tiers yielded the number represented in the glyph. Dispensing entirely with fractions, the Maya expressed all non-integer quantities in terms of ratios or equivalencies.
