Ayahuasca Visions | Soplo del Banco Puma by Pablo Amaringo


Soplo del Banco Puma  by Pablo Amaringo

Soplo del Banco Puma by Pablo AmaringoThe banco puma is a master shaman who transforms himself into a puma to go hunting or to hide from an enemy. In the old days when people in the Ucayali region did not have fire arms to kill large animals, the banco puma would use his ability to bring back food for his family.

When the shaman transforms himself into a puma he acquires its attributes; in particular a keen sense of smell, and sinchi-ňahui (strong eyes) which can mesmerise an enemy. A banco puma is a skilled healer with great knowledge of medicinal plants.

Caspi Maman (Mother of the Trees) by Pablo Amaringo


Caspi Maman – Mother of the Trees.
When you go into the selva, you will see the immense Caspi Maman looking at you. She has created this magnificent green temple in which you find yourself and she will show you that the selva consists of a multitude of levels starting underground, going through the forest floor, and up to the tree canopy. On the left of the picture you can see a powerful sumiruna and palero smoking a cachimbo. His ornate crown is formed by two blue and yellow Macaws who watch over the shaman when he drinks ayahuasca.

Ayari Warmi: (The Elegant Garment of a Woman) by Pablo Amaringo


Ayari Warmi  (The Elegant Garment of a Woman) by Pablo Amaringo

The picture reveals the eternal mystery of the feminine. When a woman works with the spirit of ayahuasca and other plants, her radiant spiritual purity appears in the vision embellished and garlanded with beautiful flowers. Just as lakes and rivers have luxuriant foliage and blossom adorning their banks, so a woman expresses the splendour of the entire natural world. Women embody heavenly beauty, tenderness and grace, while men should develop wisdom to be of service to beauty in their lives. When a woman learns to sing icaros, they resemble tuneful bird song, flowing water or the sound of wind blowing through the trees

Ayari Warmi  is featured in the book ‘The Ayahuasca Visions of Pablo Amaringo’  published by Inner Traditions 2011.

Authors Howard G Charing and Peter Cloudsley.

The Evolution of the painting ‘Chacruna Versucum (Canción de la Chacruna)’ – by Pablo Amaringo


The Evolution of the painting ‘Chacruna Versucum’ (Canción de la Chacruna) by Pablo Amaringo

Two versions of this painting are presented in the book ‘The Ayahuasca Visions of Pablo Amaringo’. We originally had Chacruna Versucum professionally photographed in April 2007. The following year Pablo showed us a revised version of this work. This was an exception as he had painted over the original canvas (something that he did not usually do). Pablo commented that on reflection he regretted repainting the canvas, and this is one of the reasons we felt it important to include both versions. We talked with him to understand his thinking and development between the two paintings. Versucum is a Latin word meaning “verse,” or “canto.” (Note that both versions are dated 2003 on the paintings.)

Chacruna Versucum (2003) by Pablo AmaringoChacruna Versucum 2003 Version (Summary Narrative)

The five dryads sing gently to heal through the circle of chacruna leaves; they transmit love and healing energy. These fairies accompany the plants of the rainforest. They represent the five outer senses, and the many inner faculties which are derived from them: intelligence, consideration, knowledge, discernment, spiritual perception and wisdom. In the central circle the celestial aspects of chacruna are represented by the circle of leaves while the ayahuasca vine represents the Earth.

 

Chacruna Versucum 2007 Version (Summary Narrative)

Chacruna Versucum 2007 version by Pablo AmaringoThis is the second version of the painting which was painted on top of the first. In the centre Pablo added the triangle of life to represent body, soul and spirit, and the triangular geometry of the human body. The triangle has an eye on each corner to symbolise intelligence, wisdom and the merging of wisdom with ignorance. Our inner depths are reflected through our eyes. Pablo adds the golden horses around the circle to represent the energy from working with ayahuasca and also elaborates on how the yacurunas kidnap the man fishing from his canoe in the cocha.

Pablo said “After I had painted the earlier version, I realized that chacruna has many other attributes and I wanted to emphasise its celestial aspects. This is the reason why I have painted this second”

NoteAyahuasca is a sacred medicine of the indigenous people living in the Upper Amazon area of South America. Ayahuasca is a name derived from two Quechua words: aya means “spirit, ancestor, deceased person,” and huasca means “vine” or “rope.” Hence it is known as “vine of the dead” or “vine of the soul.” It is important to note that the term ayahuasca refers to both the vine itself (Banisteriopsis caapi), and the psychoactive brew made from combining the vine with at least one other ingredient, typically the leaves of the chacruna plant (Psychotria viridis). The vine is an inhibitor that contains harmala alkaloids, and the leaf contains vision-inducing alkaloids (DMT). Chacruna (Psychotria viridis) leaves are boiled with the ayahuasca vine to produce the ayahuasca brew.
