“Mastay” is an Andean prophecy which foretells “the reunion of the people of four directions”, that is to say, the reunion of the whole of mankind, regardless of ethnicity, nation, belief or culture.
To make such a reunion possible, we need what came to be known in the Andes as “chaka runas”, meaning men and women bridge. These men and women must act as a bridge between cultures, and, importantly, as a bridge between the first nations from around the world and the West. We need bridges in space to allow communication between cultures in such a way that each one may contribute without seeking to change others. And we need bridges in time, which connect us to what we are becoming, so that we can cross them, leaving behind the Age which is just ending.
Mastay.info is searching for this alchemy by publishing works written by ‘chaka runas’. They are articles written out of respect for all cultures, which try to show us what we can learn from each of them. But essentially they are articles which aim to rediscover the Native American vision of the world, because just as the prophecies suggest, the new Era of peace and harmony will begin in the Andes and from there will spread first through Latin America and finally throughout the whole world.
