The Guaraní Mbyá community had its own celebration this week and is called Ara Pyahú. Let's get to know together other meanings of spring arrival.
Every September 21, Argentines celebrate with joy the start of a season that usually generates changes in mood. Almost always at positive levels, although it may have some detractors . This is the season that ends winter and precedes summer . A beautiful climate balance to thank our pachamama However, the beauty of the world we live in is the diversity of meanings that the same event can have . Such is the case of the Ara Pyahú or Mbyá New Year , a date originally from the Guaraní people with many revealing messages to learn .
For them, the arrival of spring is a time when the earth is reborn, flowering and birds appear . Also, it's when it starts to rain and the trees resprout . So tradition is clearly linked to the movements that nature has to offer and the gifts that it gives us . In this way, the wheel turns to zero and another time of opportunity and abundance begins. The holiday translates as a new day, in which days with various activities are held. Among them, the community blesses the seeds for good harvests in two or three months.
In addition, talks are organized on the care of plantations, such as corn, and typical dishes of Guarani cuisine are prepared. In this sense, women play a fundamental role in the organization of tribes . They do so by taking care of planting, growing and feeding their peers. However, the celebration also pursues other spiritual meanings . This is because it comes to prepare its members for the time of baptisms of the name Mbyá to children.
For the Aboriginal people, the world arose in the middle of an evening thanks to Ñamandú, the father . It was when he rose from his feet, and turned his arms and hands into twigs that waved the wind. Then a wreath circled his head as a hummingbird , considered the bird first , fluttered around. The story dictates that Ñamandú spoke and that from his word the gods and fathers of men were born . Their names were Jakairá, Karai, Tupá and Ñamandú Py'a Guachú .
Later, he unfolded the earth and the celestial vault which he held with four blue pindó palms. They were located to the east, west, north, south and added another in the center. He immediately created the jungle and put in it the cicada. Also, he created the rivers and gave them the tadpole. It also gave rise to the underground universe and the tatu, which was the first to reach it. Finally, he dealt with the birth of the night on which the owl reigns.
Later, he gave each god a certain faculty over things. Tupah had the water and the cool, Karai had the fire and the heat, and Jakairah had the fog and the smoke . While Ñamandú Py'a Guachu received the courage . When the tasks were dictated, he got to work. Thus, with part of the mist he created the men and ordered Karai to put some fire in their hearts. On the other hand, he ordered Tupá to give them some freshness. Finally, he gave men his laws so that they could learn and follow them . Once his work was over, he was able to go and rest. And the rest is history .
