The totem mystery

Ravindra Kumar, Hindustan Times

It is customary to draw the figure of a human or an animal on the empty space of the wall within religious drawings on occasions such as Holi, Diwali, bhai-duj, karwa-chauth or rakhi to make the picture complete. The figure filling the empty space in this way is called “totem,” which is found described under the “kahuna teachings.” Somehow the teachings were lost by the purohits (ritual observers) over time. The ancient “Mauri” race, which had settled in New Zealand, had contacts with India.

Some of their stories are popular even now, through which the lost connection can be restored.

Kahuna teachings came from the (now lost) “Huna” civilisation that once inhabited the area in-between Australia, New Zealand and Fiji islands. The remains of this highly spiritual civilisation are left as a few islands of which the main ones are in Hawaii.

There have been many misunderstandings about “spiritual partners” in the past. According to writer Long, humans got divided in two parts --man and woman in Huna method.

In China, meeting of Ying and Yan became oneness of high-soul, which has complete balance between male and female elements. Man with three (low, middle and high) souls is born again and again only to unite the two opposite poles, and then become high-soul. It is like the “united whole” of Shiva and Shakti (Ardhanareeshwara).

When low soul qualifies to become middle soul, a vacuum is created at the lower level, which is filled by the “totem.”

First the oneness of male/female elements is achieved at middle-level soul; and then the combination of low-middle-high soul is transferred to high-soul. This principle agrees with Dr. Jung on one side and with various religions on the other.
