Tlalocan

_________________________________

Tlalocan or Tlokan is the first level of the upper worlds, or the Aztecs' thirteen heavens, That has four compartments According To The Mythic cosmographies of the Nahuatl-speaking peoples of pre-Columbian Mexico Central, NOTED Particularly in Conquest-era accounts of Aztec mythology. To the Aztec There Were Thirteen Levels of the Upper Worlds, and nine of the Underworld, in the conception of the Afterlife the Manner of a person's death Determined Which of these layers would be Their destination after dying. As the place of Tlaloc, 9th Lord of the Night, Also Tlalocan was reckoned as the 9th level of the Underworld, Which in the interpretation by Eduard Seler underworld was the uppermost in the East.

The name comes from Nahuatl Tlalocan, meaning "place of Tlaloc", for it is associated in particular, major Mesoamerican With That deity of rain and lightning. Described is Tlalocan in several Aztec codices as a paradise, ruled over by Tlaloc and his consort Chalchiuhtlicue. In the Florentine Codex, a sixteenth-century set of volumes Which form one of the prime sources of information about the beliefs and history of Postclassic central Mexico, Tlalocan is Depicted as a realm of unending Springtime, with an abundance of green foliage and edible plants of the region.

 

________________________________

In areas of contemporary Mexico, Such as in the Sierra Norte de Puebla region, some Communities continue to Incorporate the concept of Tlalocán as a netherworld and shamanic religious destination In Their modern practices.

As described by Knab, shamanic entry into Tlalocan, During dreams and always Often Achieved With The objective of curing a patient, is via underground waterways, commonly a whirlpool ("whirling the water was there and it took me in and down into the darkness around and around").

Upon awakening, the shaman-dreamer will recount, to the audience-curing During a session, the itinerary Traveled in Tlalocan, Which Will be added to (Only When instructing a trainee or in speaking to other practicing shamans, never to an audience of general public) a description of the itinerary in term of numerically Counted rivers, highways, and hills: Counted as in series of 14, "There are thirteen THUS type of feature of each Located between the center and the edges of the underworld and one of each type (p. 120) of feature located in the center of the underworld. "

In the North "are the ehecatagat, the lord of the winds, and the miquitagat, the lord of death. They Are The Ones That Care for souls for the first year after death. Both of the great lords live in caves .... there are two caves, one on top of the other, and ... Death Lives in the Lowest realm.

The dead enter the underworld from the cemetery, where the lord and his minions death Keep Their souls. The role of the lord of the winds is to seek out more souls on the surface of the earth with Which to populate the regions of the dead. " "From the Cave of the Winds in the Northern Reaches of t [l] the bad air issue go crazy or evil winds, the Ahmo Feared Cualli ehecat [l], the shadow of death or shadow of death, the miquicihual, and the miquiehecat [ l], the Norths, 'the winds of death'.

The Cave of the Winds ... is where the lord of the winds reside with His various assistants who guard the cooking pots ["According to Numerous such, toads are the assistants who keep the pots. "(p. 163, n. 4:9)] where the ingredients are kept for storms, the winds, mists, rains, thunder, and lightning. Other assistants of the lord of winds are the lightning bolts quautiomeh or, the thunderclaps or popocameh, and the smoke ones, who make the miquipopoca or smoke of death That issues forth onto the surface of the earth, in t [l] alticpac, Along with the winds of death.

In the South "is a spring of boiling water shrouded in mist and clouds. This spring is found in the depths of a cave illuminated by the fires of the popocameh. In the depths of this boiling spring, ... lives ... to giant worm, eats the cuiluhuexi.The cuiluhuexi fashions the earth and the caverns ... Its fiery breath and spit boiling eat away the earth as it crawls beneath the surface. "

In the East "is the place Known as apan, the waters .... Apan is a great lake or sea in the underworld That is united in its depths With All the waters of the surface of the world. Atagat live In its depths and acihuat [l],the lord and lady of the waters. The acihuat [l] is Often Identified With The weeping or weeping woman {"in the Telleriano-Remensis and the Tonalamatl Aubin, her eyes are filled with tears" [12]} of folklore, who ... is always found near sources of water weeping ".... In the depths of apan are cities ..., and ... souls - once They have passed out of the north at the end of the first year of death - seek out ... this region."

n the West "is actually a cave Inhabited only by truly dangerous women miquicihuauh Such as, 'death woman,' and the ehecacihuauh, 'wind woman.' "" The women from this side of the underworld ... went in search of the souls of men, Especially lascivious men who couple with various women. They Also would take the Souls of women waiting on the paths, in the gardens, or in the fields for Their illicit lovers. "[14]

As a destination in the Afterlife, the Levels of heaven Were mostly reserved For those who had died violent deaths, and Tlalocan was reserved For those who had drowned or had been killed by Otherwise manifestations of water, Such as by flood, by diseases associated with water, or in storms by strikes of lightning. It was Also the destination after death for others to be Considered in Tlaloc's charge, MOST Notably the Physically deformed.
