"The Mexican Calendar is an invaluable cultural legacy"
Tonalamatl -from nahuatl- is what has been registered on amate tree paper. The Spanish word for this term is Tonalama, that is, the research of the destiny and personality based on the wisdom of our Ancient Mexico. It is the result of a meticulous analysis of a mathematical system in which all of us, without any exception, are included. It was bequeathed by our Grandparents so that we could know the inherent characteristics of each person, powers to develop and the influences that may help to have a useful and happy life.
Our forbears, who were permanent searchers of knowledge through a systematic observation of Nature and through the analysis of social and astronomical events, synthesized one of the most complete and structured calendar time systems of all times.
All that which is related to objects and thoughts, material and ideas, the existence of beings; everything is registered with time, everything is able to account for the passage of time.
Xiuhpohualli is a 365 and-a-quarter-day-calendar divided into eighteen months of twenty days. Five days, known as Nemontemi, are also included. Tonalpohualli, the Count of Destiny, is a ritual 260-day calendar divided into twenty thirteenths of thirteen days. It rules both men, as a cosmic human being, and all living beings that are part of the universal concerto and keeps all those things that exist in the correct place and distance, both in the big Sky and on the Earth.
Both Counts run parallel and they meet every fifty two years in the grand universal harmony.
Nowadays, examples of such Counts still remain, as it is the case of The Stone of The Sun which is a clear proof of Pre-Hispanic Peoples' interest in the passage of time.
As an homage to our wise Grandparents, and for the purpose of making our culture known, we herein present the research based on the codexes. Their connections have been analyzed by Master Arturo Meza Gutiérrez and his associates for over twenty years.
If you were interested and you are willing to know the affinity you may have with other people, the accurate time to start a business or to know what this year may furnish you with among other questions, ask for a personalized research or surf our website on the internet and get our books and calendars.
Affectionately and Harmoniously Tonalama.
