The Chakana is the Incan Cross and a very powerful symbol.
The Chakana symbolizes the dynamic between the universe and the life it contains. Each of the three steps of one corner contains the meaning:
The first quarter of the cross represents energetic tiers or worlds:
- The lower world (Uqhu Pacha) represented the underworld and death
- The middle world (Kay Pacha) represented the world of human life
- The upper world (Hanan Pacha) included the stars, celestial beings, and gods
The second quarter represents their revered animals, corresponding to these worlds:
- the snake, living underground, represents the lower world
- the puma, a powerful land animal represents the middle world
- the condor represents the upper world in the sky
The third quarter symbolizes 3 commandments of the Incas:
- don’t steal, don’t lie, and don’t be lazy.
The fourth – the human principles:
- love and well-being, knowledge, work
