The Plummed - Feathered Serpent,

Son Of God & Ascended Master

One of the most prominent traditions of Central America and Mexico is centered on a deity called “Quetzalcoatl” (pronounced kĕt-səl-kwä-təl). It is a tradition that both touches and colors the native cultures that live there, as explained by author Constance Irwin—

“In all of America’s past no figure is more exciting, more tantalizing, or more frustrating than that of the Fair God Quetzalcoatl (also known as Kukulkan to the Maya, Gukumatz to the Quiché & Viracocha to the Inca).

The name “Quetzalcoatl” means “feathered serpent.” It is derived from two words in the Nahuatl (Aztec) language—quetzal and coatl. Coatl means “serpent.” Quetzal is the name of a rare and highly revered Central American bird with long tail-covert feathers. The term for quetzal also means “sacred” in several Mesoamerican languages.

-The Quetzal Bird of Central America-
The tradition of Quetzalcoatl originated in Central America near the time of Christ’s crucifixion. Various written accounts establish the following beliefs regarding Quetzalcoatl that were prevalent in Mesoamerica during the sixteenth century—

• He was born of a virgin
• He was associated with a new star
• He performed miracles
• He taught the practice of baptism
• He was associated with the cross
• He was a symbol of death and resurrection
• He sent disciples to preach His word
• He prophesied of future events
• He promised He would come a second time
• He was the Creator of all things
• He caused a great destruction in Central America circa 34 A.D.
• His children will become lords and heirs of the earth

Taken together, these beliefs clearly mirror the accounts of Jesus Christ’s birth, death and ministry in Palestine that are recorded in the New Testament.

Unfortunately, some scholars are reluctant to make the connection between Quetzalcoatl and Christ. One reason is that, after 200 A.D., certain Mesoamerican priests and royalty were given or took upon themselves the title of Quetzalcoatl—making it difficult to separate traditions regarding the deity Quetzalcoatl from those associated with mortal men named Quetzalcoatl.

With many different Quetzalcoatl characters occupying the stage of Mesoamerican history between the third and sixteenth centuries, it is not surprising that confusion and misinformation abound today over the true identity of the deity Quetzalcoatl.

Nevertheless, to an open-minded, truth-seeking Christian, it should not be difficult to accept the fact that the tradition of Quetzalcoatl had its origin in Christ’s visits to the Western Hemisphere. The Light of Ancient America brings this origin to life.

A Representation Of Quetzalcoatl
-The Head Of "The Feathered Serpent" With The Ram Horns (of a male lamb)-
Modern Christians sometimes have difficulty associating the symbol of a serpent with Christ since Satan appeared in the form of a serpent when he tempted Eve in the Garden of Eden. But to Israelites who faithfully followed the law of Moses in ancient America and looked forward to the coming of Christ there, the serpent was a logical symbol for the Messiah.

As explained in Numbers 21:5-9, God sent fiery serpents to plague the rebellious Israelites who followed Moses out of Egypt. He then commanded Moses to make a serpent and mount it on a pole. Any man, woman or child who was bitten by one of the poisonous serpents had only to look upon the brazen serpent in order to be healed. That brass serpent clearly foreshadowed the saving power of the future Messiah.

John the Beloved explained the symbolism this way—

“As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up.” (John 3:14)

The inclusion of “quetzal” in the name Quetzalcoatl has several meanings. As the quetzal is revered even today by Middle Americans, its name conveys an attitude of reverence. It also alludes to Christ’s divinity and His ability to ascend and descend to and from heaven.

Dr. Joseph L. Allen gave his interpretation of the title “Quetzalcoatl” this way—

“In simple terms, if we were living at the time of Christ’s appearance . . . we might say: As Christ descended, His coming was like the beautiful quetzal bird. And after having taught us, He, again like the quetzal, ascended to heaven. And like the coatl (serpent), He came to earth and crawled through the dust of life and suffered death for us to gain eternal life. He was QUETZALCOATL.

The author of The Light of Ancient America believes Quetzalcoatl is a fitting description of Jesus Christ since it references the brass serpent Moses set on a pole to epitomize the saving power of the Redeemer and it also alludes to Christ’s divinity and His ability to ascend and descend to and from heaven.

The parallels between Christ and Quetzalcoatl listed above are too compelling to ignore. As one Christian leader (John Taylor) wrote—

“The story of the life of the Mexican divinity, Quetzalcoatl, closely resembles that of the Savior; so closely indeed, that we can come to no other conclusion than that Quetzalcoatl and Christ are the same being.”

Quetzalcoatl - The Meso-American Savior

" Quetzalcoatl "

The "Plumed - Feathered Serpent"

That Consumes His Enemies

At The End of The Age

According To Aztec/Mayan Mythology...

"Quetzalcoatl" Will Return From The East

To Defeat His Black Twin "Tezcatlipoca"

And Together They Will Create...

"The New Fifth World Age Of Ollin"

The Toltecs (Mayans of central America) had a dualistic belief system. Quetzalcoatl's opposite was Tezcatlipoca, who supposedly sent Quetzalcoatl into exile. Alternatively, he left willingly on a raft of snakes, promising to return (from the east at the end of the age).

When the Aztecs adopted the culture of the Toltecs, they made twin gods of Tezcatlipoca and Quetzalcoatl, opposite and equal; Quetalcoatl was also called White Tezcatlipoca, to contrast him to the Black Tezcatlipoca. Together, they created the world; Tezcatlipoca lost his foot in that process.

Written and researched by Margaret Odrowaz-Sypniewska, B.F.A.

Quetzalcoatl (Aztec name), the "Feathered Serpent" often wore the gorgeously long tail feathers of the Quetzal bird as his plumes upon his headdress. He loved the Quetzal's beauty thus his Aztec name. To the Mayans, he was Kulkulcan. Kulkulcan was a supreme being that was able to take the guise of thunder, wind, and fire. Both Quetzalcoatl and Kulkulcan were considered the creators of all life and civilization. As men, they were opposed to war and human sacrifice; and were kind and benevolent. They preached simplicity and virtue. Kulkulcan/Quetzalcoatl (also known as Kulkulcan, ) was associated with Venus, the Morning Star. This perhaps explains the fascination that all ancient Mexican cultures had with viewing the stars and why all ancient cities had observatories.

In human form Quetzalcoatl was a pale-skinned (the last one was rumored to be), bearded man who wore a conical hat. He often wore a long flowing robe decorated with crosses and feathers.

He was thought to have been a past ruler who introduced metallurgy, agriculture, government, and the arts to the people of Mexico. His reign was during the golden age of peace and abundance. He invented the Mayan and Aztec calendar, and gave this information to his priests. This legendary man lived a celibate life and did not drink. Drink was considered bad for all but old men, who used it to forget their pain.

Quetzalcoatl encouraged self-sacrifice by blood letting. He bled the calf of his leg to stain thorns with blood. The "Blood of Kings" was considered "jewel water." The rulers of ancient Mexico practiced blood letting as a sacrifice for the well-being of their people. As the blood was burned, along with the collecting parchment, their prayers would be taken to the heavens. Some think that Quetzalcoatl sailed across the Atlantic to his place of birth and vowed he would return again someday (from the east to take back his land).

The great enemy of Quetzalcoatl was the black Tezcatlipoca (his twin brother), the sun god. In fact, Quetzalcoatl was one of the four manifestations of the sun gods. He was the second of the five world ages represented by the sun Ehecatl. The fifth sun is called Ollin (we are entering this fifth world age). Warfare between these brothers brought about the creation and destruction of the four worlds or suns prior to our current sun. Being Quetzalcoatl's antagonistic twin, Tezcatlipoca (the black twin), promoted the cult of human sacrifice and he seemed to win power before Quetzalcoatl's departure. Men generally corrupt into the forces of evil, which is more with their nature. To be pure takes much more self-control.

Tezcatlipoca became the new leader after defeating the followers of Quetzalcoatl. He was the "evil twin" of Quetzalcoatl. Each of us has a good and bad side. Quetzalcoatl burned his houses, so that they could not be corrupted by the new regime. His loyal attendants were all turned into brightly colored birds, so they could watch his enemies and blend into the scenery. Then Quetzalcoatl sailed away on a serpent boat to spread his cult to other worlds(promising to return from the east to take back his land). Hernando Cortes sailed from Cuba with eleven ships to the Yucatan Peninsula. Francisco de Montejo was his main captain and was later made the Governor of Merida, now the capital of the Yucatan peninsula.

Many believers of the "Legend of Quetzalcoatl" thought that Hernando Cortes (1485-1547) was the returning god. Montezuma II (1466-1520) knew he made a fatal mistake in trusting this newcomer, Cortes, from across the sea. Montezuma's belief in Cortes, as Quetzalcaotl, brought about the collapse of the Aztec Empire. The Spanish conquistadore, Cortes, used the native belief to his own benefit. He portrayed the returned leader for as long as he could be believed. He took Aztec gold, their treasures, and their culture. By the time the impostor was discovered, many were killed or died from European diseases. Montezuma II was in anguish for this event, and he lost his mind.

The Spanish noted that the native Aztecs and Mayans both had crosses and this was used as an advantage to bring new Christians to the fold. The story of Quetzalcoatl reminded Spanish Christians of the story of Thomas, the Apostle, who also went off to sea looking for converts.

Many think that Quetzalcoatl might have been Jesus Christ, our Christian savior. The story of Quetzalcoatl says that he was also the only son of a supreme diety. His father was known as Tonacatecutle, meaning "god of heaven." When assasins kill his father, Quetzalcoatl throws them off a mountain.

In another version, of the story, he rubs hot chilis into their wounds, then he makes drinking cups of their skulls. Quetzalcoatl's mother was Chamalman (or Itztli). Chamalman was, like Mary, a virgin. She was celebrated at Tula's ceremonial center. Quetzalcoatl came to the city of Tula, the capital of the Toltecs, as a man.

The Mayans of the Yucatan copied the civilization of Tula and named their ceremonial center, Chichen Itza (after Itztli). Other areas of the cult of Quetzalco tl were: Teotihuacan, Cholula, Xochimilco, and Malinalco. Chimalman, Quetzalcoatl's mother, was impregnated by the god's breath, not by carnal sex.

Another version says she swallowed a piece of jade. Quetzalcoatl was both god (serpent) and man. He was worshipped from 750 A.D.(or earlier) to 1500. Quetzalcoatl let himself be imprisoned to bring mercy and reason to the world.

He was thought to have been crucified, but this might have been a Catholic priest's interpretation of the legend. Remember Catholic priests translated many Mayan and Aztec histories into Spanish. These documents are still housed in Spain and Mexico.

Quetzalcoatl and his evil twin Tezcatlipoca were both the creator and the destructor of our world. They had the responsibility of restoring everything in the aftermath and bringing forth the fifth world of Ollin. They were also thought to have passed through the body of the earth monster, Tlaltecuhti and split it to form heaven and earth.

Later, Quetzalcoatl descended into the Underworld Mictlan to obtain from its rulers the bones and ashes of generations of mankind to create the humanity of the fifth sun. He was said to have dropped the bones and broken them, thus accounting for the different sizes and statures of men. Quetzalcoatl mixed his blood with these bones and brought forth new life.

The Nahua Indians revered Quetzalcoatl for his gifts of science and arts. He was worshipped at Teotihuacan from 750 A.D. The Temple of Quetzalcoatl was the six-tiered step pyramid at Teotihuacan and the huge pyramid of Cholula on the Puebla plain was also built for him. This pyramid is the largest ancient structure in the New World.

Topiltzin Quetzalcoatl was a historical figure born circa 935 A.D. He only took the god's name, since throughout the world kings often think of themselves as dieties.

Quetzalcoatl was thought to have connections to the lost planet of Atlantis. Many scholars have pointed out that there is a great similarity between the stories of Mesoamerica and of those of the Indian (from India) Nagas.

The Legend Of "Quetzalcoatl"

As told by a Daughter of Mesoamerica:

Quetzalcoatl, Our Prince, had brought religious reform to Tula. He believed that human sacrifice had to be stopped and so it was done. But others were not pleased, those who had followed Tezcatlipoca were angry. Their god had demanded the nectar of human blood as his tribute.

Thus those who followed Tezcatlipoca had plotted to do away with Our Prince. Death, unfortunately, was not to be. For in death, they believed that Quetzalcoatl would gain more followers and then his teachings could not be silenced. No, they sought to destroy him in such a manner as to discredit his message, which would be more painful than death.

Hence they set out to trick Our Prince. They held before him, one day, a mirror and to his astonishment Quetzalcoatl had seen how old he was. Falling into despair, he wondered what to do. His enemies then said to him that they could make him young again, and produced for him a cure.

Believing this was his salvation, Quetzalcoatl had taken this offering. But this cure was pulque, which his lips had never touched before. The pulque racing in his blood caused Quetzalcoatl to act not like himself. He had relations with a woman that he would have never committed before.

And when word spread about Tula, the people were shocked and ashamed. Seeing his people's faces and hearts, Our Prince decided to flee. Across the land, he and some of his loyal followers went. Until they reached Tlillan Tlapallan where Our Prince was then no more.

And so greatly did (the Toltecs) believe
in their priest Quetzalcoatl,
and so greatly obedient
and given to the things of their god were they.
and so fearful of god
all believed in Quetzalcoatl
when he left Tula...
And so much did they trust Quetzalcoatl,
that they went with him, they entrusted upon him
their wives, their children, their sick ones.
They stood up, they set off,
the old men, the old women,
no one ceased to obey,
all set off.
Suddenly he went towards the center of the sea,
toward the land of red,
and there he disappeared,
he, our prince Quetzalcoatl...

The Man

"The Flight from Tula" is a legend related to both the man Quetzalcoatl and the god Quetzalcoatl. Due to this circumstance, establishing who the legend should properly be associated with is rather difficult.

It is in all likelihood that the god Quetzalcoatl did have a such a myth in his repoitre; especially if one considers his relationship with Tezcatlipoca. Unfortunately it is also quite possible that "The Flight from Tula" occurred first and was later intertwined with the god.

Just the Facts

According to the Chimalpopoca Codex, which is a genealogy of Toltec rule, Quetzalcoatl the man entered the world in the following manner:

His father, Mixcoatl, conquered Teotihuacan and the surrounding area,established Culhuacan as the new capital. During his campaign, he entered the land now called Morelos and encountered Chimalman; and produced a child with her, Ce Actal Topiltzin Quetzalcoatl. However, Quetzalcoatl never knew his father, who was assassinated.

Safely taken away, Topiltzin was reared in the way of the god of his namesake, Quetzalcoatl. When he reached adulthood, the remaining followers of his father persuade him to return to Tula to take the throne. Though Nicholson claims that Topiltzin acts on his own accord; claiming the throne by avenging his father's death. Either way, he does enact religious reform.

Blood sacrifice is to stop while butterflies,birds and serpents (all connected to the god Quetzalcoatl) are decreed to be the only things sacrificed. Brundage agrees with Nicholson on the point that Topiltzin was trying to establish reform, but also suggests that he tried to instill a new religion with Quetzalcoatl as the god.

And as in the legend, backlash mounted against Topiltzin with the followers of Tezcatlipoca being at the forefront. Other cults opposed the reform, because like Tezcatlipoca their gods relied on a steady stream of blood; however, Tezcatlipoca's cult was the most blood thirsty of them all.

Continuing to parallel the legend, Tezcatlipoca's followers got Topiltzin drunk, whereupon he commited unsavory acts with a woman (and according to Brundage the woman is his sister).

The Road Less Traveled

Following his disgrace, Topiltzin and a group of followers either voluntarily leave Tula or are banished from it. Brundage says that the route, which is consistent throughout all the different versions of this myth, is as follows:

The Great Basin onto Tzapotlan then Morelos followed by Cholula and Cuachquechollan continuing until the Coast whereupon crossing the water arrives at Acallan with the final destination being Tlillan Tlapallan.

Demetrio Sodi postulates that Tlillan Tlapallan, which is a legendary land (the name meaning "the land of black and red, of wisdom"; Sodi, 1982:62), is in actuality none other than the Yucatan. He points to the fact that this part of Maya territory has already been exposed to Nahutal influences due to the Toltecs at Chichen Itza.

(Note: Nicholson claims that Chien Itza was founded by Topiltzin) Upon his arrival in this land, Ce Actal Topiltzin Quetzalcoatl is now known as Kukulcan (the direct Maya translation of Quetzalcoatl). He is later credited as establishing the royal dynasties in Guatemala (Quiche Maya territory).

But he is not only the progenitor of legitimate royal rule in Guatemala, in Mixteca territory where Quetzalcoatl is known as 9 Wind, he is also said to have done the same.

Multiple Quetzalcoatls

Nicholson raises an interesting point when referring to the historical persona. Since Quetzalcoatl is known to be used as a title of rulership (in addition to denoting the priesthood), there lies the possibility that there may have existed more than one Quetzalcoatl the man.

He claims that "there may have been other rulers who earlier bore this same title and played a similar role, whose lives and deed may have fused with the [my italics] Topiltzin Quetzalcoatl of Tollan, i.e., the protagonist of the basic tale current at Contact - perhaps even at Teotihuacan";

an event that is highly probable when considering the fact that Mesoamericans did enjoy acting out mythical tales, as seen with Mixcoatl. (Nicholson, 1976:39) If one also considers that myth and history often merge within the surviving texts on Ancient Mesoamerica, the possibility cannot be easily denied.


However the demise of Topiltzin, unlike his life, is not so easily known. There exists more than one version. One says that upon arriving in Tlillan Tlapallan he disappears. Another (Mexica in origin) claims that he built a raft of serpents and birds and sailed away toward the East, while leaving a prophecy behind-- he or one of his sons would return from the East and re-claim the throne.

It is this version that explains why when Cortez arrived, Montecuhzoma Xocoyotzin (a.k.a. Montezuma) had received Cortez as Quetzalcoatl and resigned his throne to him so easily. Still other accounts sway toward the mythical.

Topiltzin upon reaching the Gulf, builds a bonfire and throws himself on top of it. After which he is transformed into either the Morning Star (Tlahuizcalpantecuhtli) or the Evening Star (Xolotl).

The Father Of The Quetzalcoatl Messianic Lineage

& The Olmec/Mayan/Aztec Indians In America


The Leopard King Of Thunder & Lightening

Of The Yoruba People Of W. Africa, America & The Isles

Chango/Shango - Aggayú, the owner of the river, made love with Yemayá and from them Shangó was born. But Yemayá did not want the child and Obatalá gathered him up and he raised him as his own. Treating him like a son, he put a white necklace on him and marked him, saying to him that he would be king of the world and have a castle made for him.

Shangó traveled to the Congo and the young man became so rebellious that Mother Kalunga Water had to expel him from there. Then he took his divination tablet, castle and throne, with which he had lowered from the sky, and took the way of exile. Walking and walking, he encountered with Orula, to whom he gave the tablet because he knew that he was a respectful man and would take care of it.

They also say that Shangó (Chango) fought without weapons because Osain, his godfather, gave the secret ingredients to him of güiro. When he touched it with the finger and took it to his mouth, flame would shoot out of his mouth. With this he overcame his enemies. When one hears thunder roar, one says that it is because Shangó is partying with his women or he rides by in the sky.

Shangó has three messengers: Araúa (the thunderclap), Mana Mana (lightning) and Biri Aimeyé (the dark). It receives the name of Eletimo, that means "proprietor of the knowledge and the Shining Eye".

Fighting from the canopy of the tree odán (male jagüey), he saved to Oddúa with his oche when their enemies followed them. Also he is the proprietor of ewe ire tree (rubber tree) that he calls stay on foot. With moruro wood and during sunset he prepared the secret of Osun. He knows the remedy to cure leprosy, since with the aid of Osain, he saved his brother Babalú Ayé when he became ill, and he identifies himself with a leopard or a tiger that washes itself with the blood of sheep. The name of the wizard of Changó is Lakín Shekún and, they say that with his breath, he kills and he saves.

"It is time to kill," said Chango to his horse, and galloped off to find his enemies. was dawn when he reached his enemies' camp. He came rushing at them. His fury was terrible to behold. Lightning flashed from his hands. He shouted wild warrior cries. He was still dressed as a woman (like his wife Oya).

"Oya has turned into Chango," his enemies shouted when they saw the screaming apparition bearing down upon them, long hair flying and a gown flapping in the wind. They panicked.

Behind them, Oya came striding out of her house, fully armed, and began hacking right and left with her ax. Her short hair bristled and shot out electric sparks.

"If Oya helps Chango, there is victory," she shouted, cutting off arms and legs.

Chango and Oya were victorious. Since that battle, Oya has been Chango's inseparable companion in war. With Chango's thunder and Oya's storms, they are invincible and remain so to this day.

Chan-go (Serpent)

The Original Quetzalcoatl Of The Olmec/Mayan/Aztec From West Africa

"In the Maya culture the serpent (dragon) represents wisdom and so on. Can you please summarize your understanding, what the serpent means in the Mayan mythology?"

"The Serpent, Chan or Chicchan, represents the life force, which is the source of innate (DNA) wisdom. To deny this wisdom is to deny our life force. Nah Chan, "Place of the Serpent," is the traditional name of Palenque, seat of Pacal Votan's prophetic cycle, indicating this site as a place of wisdom.

When the serpent flies, this wisdom is liberated. This is the underlying meaning of Kukulkan or Quetzalcoatl, the plumed serpent, which is also connected with the release of Kundalini in Vedic yoga traditions. Hence, Quetzalcoatl represents the kundalini of prophetic realization."

Dr. José Argüelles - Valum Votan, Closer of the Cycle
