George Harrison seemed the more spiritually-minded of the group. but who knew the Beatles were familiar with Mayan tradition? Was John Lennon a walrus or a Mayan elder? Either way, he surely was acquainted with this Mayan traditional greeting.

The following is an excerpt from Living In Lak’ech’ Becoming One With All Life by Aluna Joy Yaxkin

Lakota Elder Lakota One Heart and Director Ethan Marten in White Buffalo: An American Prophecy

In Mayan tradition there is a greeting that many people working with Mayan wisdom know of. It is In Lak’ech. We understand In Lak’ech to mean I am another yourself (A modern day interpretation) and also means I am you, and You are me (A traditional Mayan interpretation) We have come to understand that this Mayan greeting is an honoring for each other and a statement of unity. In Lak’ech mirrors the same sentiment of other beautiful greetings such as Namaste for East India and Wiracocha for the Inca. The Maya greeting, In Lak’ech goes beyond these unity statements and what I learned as a child. What few understand is that In Lak’ech is more that an honorable Maya greeting. It is a moral code. It is a way to live, not only with human beings, but with ALL forms of life in our cosmos!
