  • Events & Education : Day of The Dead Dia de Muertos-Intro
    integral part of life The duality of creation and the universe was the central axis of their belief system Everything was inexorably tied to its opposite thus life was seen as death and death as life As a matter of fact life was viewed mostly as a dream and it was believed that death brought the awakening from that dream In a flowery poem written by Mexika me SHEE ka Aztec Texcoco Speaker or Ruler Netzhualcoyotl he explores this metaphor We come only to sleep only to dream It is not true it is not true that we come to live on this earth We become as Spring weeds we grow green and open the petals of our hearts Our body is a plant in flower it gives flower and dies away As one awoke from the dream of life the dwelling place of one s afterlife was not determined by one s conduct on earth with all of its transgressions but rather by the manner in which one died Their world view was not based on a doctrine of salvation or redemption but on one with an ethical concept dissimilar to the Christian one Ethical principles which guided their life and the approval of the gods thus led to the attainable happiness on earth Through particular forms of religious observance the peoples of Mesoamérica have sought to ensure harmony and balance both with themselves and with the greater cosmos One s destiny after death was a matter for the gods to determine not the individual Therefore one s final destiny in the afterlife was determined by the manner of the individuals death For example Eagle and Jaguar Warriors who died in battle as sacrificial victims to Tonatiuh toh nah tu the Sun God or women who died in childbirth
