Temple of Kukulkan (Serpent God or Kundalini)
Temple of Kukulkan: In the 1980s, Chichen
Itza began to receive an influx of visitors on
the day of the spring equinox. Today several
thousand show up to see the light-and-
shadow effect on the Temple of Kukulcan in
which the feathered serpent god supposedly
can be seen to crawl down the side of the
pyramid.”A serrated line of seven
interlocking triangles (chakras) gives the
impression of a long tail leading downward to
the stone head of the serpent Kukulkan
(Kundalini), at the base of the stairway.”
“The Mayan masters teach that we are the
integration of the seven powers of light,
traveling in the form of the serpent,
undulating eternally with movement and
measure. In Mayan, the pyramid is called
k'u, the root word for the sacred Hunab K'u,
the Only Giver of Movement and Measure.
Thus, when we see the seven triangles in
Chichen Itza during the equinoxes, we are
witnessing a demonstration of culture which
pervades the atmosphere and stones of
this sacred place. With respect and humility,
we should kneel before the presence of
Kukulcan or Quetzalcoatl. By so doing, we will
begin to awaken our cosmic consciousness,
allowing Hunab K'u to enter the sacred
temples in our bodies!"— Hunbatz Men,
Secrets of Mayan Science and Religion p.126.

"Quetzalcoatl taught the ancients all the necessary skills to advance their civilization, from mathematics and science to agriculture and astronomy, as well as the famous Mayan calendrical formulae which predicts the end of the world to be December 21st 2012. He taught the people to live in peace and then moved on disappearing across the sea, but he promised he would someday return. Unfortunately for the ancient inhabitants of Mexico they mistook the arrival of the Spanish conquistadors and Cortez in 1519 as Quetzalcaotl's return, bringing about their tragic doom. Accepting them with open arms and treating them with utmost reverence the ancient people expected their newly arrived god to bestow great benevolence upon them. Instead the Spanish invaders brought nothing but greed and brutality for their trusting hosts.
The name Quetzalcoatl (ket-tsul'kwot-ul) means "plumed or feathered serpent.” We must certainly then mention the great ancient city of Chichen Itza on Yucatan peninsula in Mexico. There, twice a year, an amazing spectacle related to the feathered serpent god takes place:
“The most famous of all Mayan cities is Chichen Itza in Yucatan. This was founded over 1000 years ago and the famous pyramid called 'Pyramid of Kukulcan' was built here. Each year at the spring and autumn equinox, around 4 p.m., the Sun casts a shadow on the stepped structure. As if by magic, this shadow appears to form a slithering serpent which slides down the face of the pyramid to the Earth below. It is believed that this serpent represents the deity, Quezalcoatl, the 'feathered serpent', also known as Kukulcan. ... Natives of the area have a long held belief in this divine serpent goddess, who has fostered life on Earth and delivered mankind from evils.” (Arvind Bhatnagar, William Charles, 2005, 8)
So then, on these two very important dates, the vernal and autumnal equinoxes, it appears that Quetzalcoatl is indeed present among his people as the shadow of the serpent moves along the steps of the Pyramid of Kulkulkan.
The Spirit-Paraclete“This Power is placed in the triangular bone which is called as sacrum, which means Greeks knew about this centre. They very well knew about it, that's why they called it sacred, sacrum. In many countries there has been a manifestation that they know about this particular Power.
I happened to go to Colombia where I collected an authentic antique copy of the antique necklace. The necklace had at its bottom a Kundalini and even the earrings had the Kundalini, but, surprisingly, it was from the Indians of America, though it is now kept in the museum in Colombia. It was in America that people knew about Kundalini, definitely absolutely in three and a half coil they had done this pattern very well. Is very surprising that it was done even before Columbus came here.”

“It is important at this juncture to note the similarities and differences between the functions of the Spirit as Paraclete in Jn 14-16 and the life-giving Spirit in Jn 3-7. Although both the Paraclete and the life-giving Spirit convey wisdom, the nature and purpose of this wisdom is quite distinct. The life-giving Spirit enables the recipients to grasp the significance of the cross and Jesus' true identity. The Paraclete, on the other hand, given to the disciples in order to assist their witness, offers charismatic wisdom by enabling the disciples to recall and understand the teaching of Jesus. The purpose of the Paraclete is not to grant the disciples that wisdom which is essential for the right relationship with God (i.e. spiritual life). Rather, the Paraclete grants a special kind of wisdom; it is wisdom which is directed toward the unbelieving world in the form of witness.” (Menzies 2004, 48-9)
