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.

Trueno Ayahuasca by Pablo Amaringo


Trueno AyahuascaTrueno Ayahuasca (Thunder Ayahuasca) by Pablo Amaringo

This is a variety of ayahuasca liana which can be seen growing from two Shipibo pots and forms two pillars which support a splendid palace of learning. People who learn here open their arms and says ‘blessed ayahuasca you are my teacher’, and that is what you are here for. Drinking Trueno Ayahuasca with a knowledgeable shaman can be an overwhelming experience causing thunder and torrential rain to fall, but it integrates you strongly with the biological cycle of the Amazon.

Yana Huáman by Pablo Amaringo

Yana Huáman – Aguila Negra

Yana huáman means ‘black eagle’ in Quechua, and refers to a powerful maestro. The black eagle has phenomenal eyesight and can distinguish small details from a great distance, thus a yana huáman possesses the gifts of insight and discernment.The woman on the right edge of the picture is the Mother of the puca lupuna. A deserving maestro climbs the stairway (bottom right) to her temple. She is the ‘tree of the red moon’ and teaches the mysteries of the lunar rhythm that influences women’s ovulation

Los Grados del Curandero by Pablo Amaringo


 Los Grados del Curandero by Pablo Amaringo

The concentric wheels in the centre correspond to the levels of esoteric knowledge of a curandero: beginning from the outside they are onaya, banco puma, muraya, sumiruna and the innermost banco sumi. The wheels also represent the varied levels of higher consciousness that drinkers of ayahuasca strive for. Below the puca lupuna tree on the left is a chullachaqui riding a giant charapa or turtle. The chullachaqui is a mischievous gnome-like being who protects the animals of the rainforest.The picture is intended for meditation and contemplation of inner peace and harmony. When you look in the centre, you should not blink or glance away; this process purifies your mind and reveals your spiritual light.

Variopinto de la Chacruna (The Many Colours of Chacruna) by Pablo Amaringo


Variopinto de la Chacruna  by Pablo Amaringo

In the upper part of the painting is the crucible of alchemical transformation representing the genesis of the ayahuasca vision. Each side are magnificent sylphs, the guardians of the two plants – chacruna and ayahuasca that combine to form the sacred brew – ayahuasca. The chacruna induces colourful visions, while the ayahuasca liana promotes insight. If you drink pure ayahuasca, that is the liana without chacruna, perhaps some mapacho tobacco, your visions are only in black and white

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.

The Ayahuasca Visions of Pablo Amaringo Interview on examiner.com


Examiner.com Interview: Jeffery Pritchett interviews Howard G. Charing

This interview is about Pablo Amaringo and his beautiful art that were inspired through Ayahuasca. Howard G. Charing gives us insight on his life and paintings in this interview in a unique perspective that only he could provide. As well as detailed descriptions of the ceremonies and experiences revolving around Ayahuasca. This interview is a walk between worlds and I hope you will enjoy it as much as I have. Presenting.

1. Could you please tell us how you got involved with Pablo and the creation of this wonderful book The Ayahuasca Visions of Pablo Amaringo?

View slideshow: Howard G. Charing on ‘The Ayahuasca Visions of Pablo Amaringo’

Barco Fantasma by Pablo Amaringo

Howard: My colleague and co-author Peter Cloudsley and I had known Pablo for many years, and it was always a special thrill to visit Pablo at his home in Pucallpa and look in wonder at his beautiful work. We did some ad-hoc interviews with him which were published, and we made notes about his about his paintings but the actual inspiration to work with Pablo on a major project such as this book came out of the blue – it came suddenly during an Ayahuasca ceremony at Mishana in the Peruvian Amazon. My visions that night were of the vivid creations, motifs, and forms of Pablo’s paintings. The ceremony culminated in what I can only describe as a lightning flash and a powerful message from the Ayahuasca to work with Pablo on a book of his new paintings.

The following day, I discussed the idea with Peter—he and I had worked together, since the 1990s, organizing ayahuasca and plant diet retreats in the Amazon, and we decided to visit Pablo in Pucallpa at the earliest opportunity, which was in February 2007, to discuss the idea of doing a book with him. When we told him about the idea, Pablo’s face immediately lit up with enthusiasm and there and then, we agreed to collaborate on this book.

All in all, this was a complex project. We formed a detailed plan, the first step of which was to catalogue and have all of Pablo’s available paintings and sketches professionally photographed and later digitally scanned. Pablo gave us hundreds of pages of his notes and journals, which he had kept in his house. We had many meetings with Pablo to discuss and explore the multifaceted qualities of his paintings. Each session generated new questions, which necessitated further trips to Pucallpa before we were in a position to complete the narratives that accompany the paintings themselves.

2. With written contributions by Graham Hancock, Jeremy Narby, Robert Venosa, Dennis McKenna, Stephan Beyer, and Jan Kounen. Would you tell us about some of the content added by these fellow journeymen and women and the central theme they outline about Pablo’s life and vision?

Howard: We were really delighted and honoured by their contribution to the book. Each of them had a different perspective about the importance and influence of Pablo’s work, as well as some personal anecdotes. When we approached them to write a contribution, they were all happy to do this despite their busy work schedules. Dennis McKenna’s contribution covered his early encounters in the 1980’s with Pablo that ultimately led to Pablo’s book ‘Ayahuasca Visions – The Religious Iconography of a Peruvian Shaman’ in collaboration with Eduardo Luna. That book had an enormous impact when it was published in 1991. Pablo’s stunning visual portrayal of the magical domain of Ayahuasca generated a huge interest in the hitherto little known mythological, spiritual, and shamanic world of the Amazon. It opened this mysterious world to the West, and it had an incredible influence both from an ‘art’ and an anthropological perspective. Talking about Pablo’s art depicting the amazingly rich mythological texture and content of the Amazonian peoples, reminds me that some years back I was on a bus in Iquitos with a group of young missionaries wearing their uniform white shirts and ties and I started to talk to them about what they were doing and so on, and one of them replied ‘We are here to teach the local people beliefs as they don’t have any’. It was an arrogant and ignorant statement bordering on the ludicrous, but clearly they were not acquainted with Pablo’s work, as if they had maybe they would have to adjust their view.

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.
