Inca Ritual Calendar
Last year I went to Peru and felt guided there by the spirit in many places.
In Cusco I went to see Corincancha old Sun temple also known as Virgins temple in past Inka time.
My camera was not working on that day so I asked friend Gay to take a photo of a wall with drawings of monthly celebrations in relation to the New Moon and Full Moon.
I felt that those pictures have a deep meaning and I knew that the understanding of it would come in time, as this is how my guides work with me sometimes.
Last month before Full Moon I felt guided and found on Internet another photo very good quality of this wall drawings and I posted the site in previous post here.
Inca were very much connected to land and the Stars and their rituals included celebrations connected to New Moon and Full Moon. One is a ritual calendar and other is an agricultural calendar.
But I wanted to find out more about this and today again guided I found the source and much information about it that I like to share with you.
The drawings and pictures in Cusco Church they are from a book Chronicles by Guaman Poma. See in this site about his work.
The original manuscript is in Denmark Royal Library but it has been put on Internet and drawings as well as text can be read.
I believe that this is very valid link to Inca ritual calendar they traditionally observed.
So last month Full Moon according to this translation was the feast of the Queen.
INKA Ritu SETIENBRE, Coya Raymi [celebration of the Queen]:
Dizese this month Coya Raymi the great feast of the moon. It is coya and Lady of the Sun.
Now The tenth month, October; Uma Raymi Killa, month of the principal feast
VBRE, Uma Raymi Keel [month of the festivity of the water]:
[“Creator of the man: maker of those who eat! God of Wari Wira Qucha: where are you? Send, please, your water and rain to your nations!”]

Hi Renassance Happy New Year to you!
I found this link to this book that is an English translation of Inca book.
You can read some pages there. On page 197 is November and starts December Full Moon celebrations and you can read more on next two pages. Interesting but sad at the same time that this coulture was sucrificing 500 children to the Sun. But its clear that their culture was a mixture of some rituals past on traditionaly. I like to get this book in the future. Here is link:
Happy New Year to you also Basia! Thankyou so much for this great reference book ,My my! Chalk full of information and soooo old! I luv that! I look forward to reading that section especially and it looks like that might take a while so I've definitely bookmarked it in favourites. I hope you have a great 2013 and let's hope we can knock this one out of the cosmic ballpark! Cheers mate! Renny :)
