There are many concepts we also need to cover in order to truly provide insight. Hunab K’u is a central concept that ultimately can be explained as the Divine Energy that guides the entire Universe, God, so to speak.
Here it is explained:
The Maya taught that the Milky Way Galaxy is the generator of life. In the Yucatec language, the architect of the universe is called "Hunab K'u," meaning the One Giver of Movement and Measure; the Absolute Being; The Center of the Galaxy; The Universal Dynamism which stimulates and motivates life in its total manifestation of spirit and matter; the principle of intelligent energy that pervades the entire universe, animate or inanimate.
Hunab Ku is understood to transmit radiant energy/information through stars which serve as lenses to transmit energies to planets. So our Sun (called "Kin" in Yucatec) is the chief mediator of Hunab K'u for our planetary system, the lens by which Earth receives direct galactic information. The pulsations of Hunab Ku are understood as a language of codes/energies recorded in the form of the "Tzolkin," a universal harmonic module accommodating every possible permutation of Hunab K'u, also known as the Sacred Calendar. Numerically, Hunab K'u is communicated as the union of numbers, 13 and 20 which represent movement and measure; energy and form; spirit and soul. Geometrically, Hunab K'u can be symbolized by a square within a circle.
Hunab Ku was, to the Mayas, the supreme God and ultimate Creator. It represented the gateway to other Galaxies beyond our Sun as well as all of the Consciousness that has ever existed in this Galaxy. Hunab Ku, according to the Mayas, is also the consciousness, which organized all matter, from a "whirling disk", into stars, planets and solar systems. Hunab Ku is the "Mother Womb" which is constantly giving birth to new stars and it gave birth to our own Sun and Planet Earth. They also believed that the "Creator" directs everything that happens in our Galaxy from its center through the emanation of periodic "Consciousness Energy" bursts.
As accounted by Yucatec Mayan Elder Hunbatz Men, Mayan science was not separate from their religion, for they embraced the microcosm of the atom and the macrocosm of the infinite. Their universal philosophy teaches us "the human body belongs to the earth, and the human spirit to the Universe." The Maya understood human existence as "nothing less than a faithful reflection of cosmic energy." As manifestations of cosmic consciousness, the Maya regarded all things and beings that exist on Earth as products of the projection of energy in the form of vibration. Their worldview is a paradigm based on wave harmonics and resonant fields. The Mayan sages were aware of the sensory and extrasensory characteristics of trees and plants, and, understanding that the tree is the best regenerator of the air we breath, revered the tree.
The Cosmology of the ancient Maya was a holistic one, including a highly developed science of the 7 energy centers of the human body (called "chakras" in Sanskrit), in depth understanding of the healing and restorative power of the sacred kundalini life-force of our sexual energy ("k'ulthanlilni" in Mayan), extensive practices of Solar worship, meditation, yoga, and ritual, and an exquisite language which incorporates the songs of the birds. The characteristic dynamic of Zuyua Mayan language is that its words are invertable, for example "y'ak" means "language" and "k'ay" means "song". The Mayan word for flower, "l'ol" literally means vibration and consciousness.
