"Don Alejandro Cirilo Perez Oxlaj, a Mayan elder"
Don Perez is a Political appointee, by the guatamalan govt as ambassador to indigenous peoples of the highlands. He is an activist to retain mining
and water rights, and represent the rights of his fellow man.
Fantastic and more power to him. It is something that he does well, and should be quite proud of himself. This is important work.
He is also heavily involved on lecture circuit and seems to be self appointed scholar of mayan teachings. This is where it gets murky and needs
clarification. Almost all references for him in relation to Mayan teachings are thru the same type of organizations; buy our books, our tapes, we
alone know the truth of Mayan prophecies. They are websites that cross promote his teachings as evidence that their own books and tapes are somehow
Go to the Yucatan if possible, there are incredible museums staffed by university professors and degreed scholars that will take the time to sit
and discuss Mayan teachings and beliefs in Detail. We ended up at the home of one of the professors and spent the night and next day learning Mayan
beliefs and mythology. Some of the education occured at the top of pyramids and inside constructions at Uxmal, an incredible sight in itself.
There is no cataclysm approaching, there are no global earthquakes or floods...2012 will pass safely, other than people panicking.
There are groups that will become wealthy as a result of hysteria, spending thousands on publications and media, which is unfortunate. they could
spend far less and receive valuable education by travelling to the Yucatan or guatamala and learning in the environment itself.
