The phrase, "Oh Yum Hunab Ku Evam Maya Emaho," combines Mayan and Tibetan languages. Loosely, the phrase thanks "the source" for balance of mind (or spirit) with nature. The Sanskrit, "Emaho" often appears "E Ma Ho," is also a popular mantra.

The text is an English translation of a traditional Mayan prayer to seven directions, more commonly recited in Spanish. The prayer is supposedly traditional... appears often in mystic and Wiccan communities.


From the East, House of Light
May wisdom Dawn in us
So we may see all things in clarity

From the North, House of the Night
May Wisdom Ripen in Us
So we may know all from within

From the West, House of Transformation
May Wisdom be transformed into right action
So we may do what must be done

From the South, House of the Eternal Sun
May right action reap the harvest
So we may enjoy the fruits of Planetary being

From Above, House of Heaven
Where star people and Ancestors gather
May their blessings come to us Now

From Below, House of Earth
May the heartbeat of her crystal core
Bless us with harmonies to end all war

From the Centre, Galactic Source
Which is everywhere at once
May everything be known
As the light of mutual love

Oh Yum Hunab Ku Evam Maya E Ma Ho
