The Chakana Cross is a mystical, Incan symbol parallel to the Tree of Life, where three levels of existence are revealed; the upper world inhabited by the Gods, the human world of our every day existence and the underworld where the spirits of the dead and the ancestors dwell.
The hole through the center of the cross is symbolic of an ancient Stargate by means of which the shaman transists the cosmic vault to the other levels. It also represents the center of the Incan Empire. Although these are some of the most common meanings attributed to the symbol, there are some who consider it to be far more mystical in origin.
These people believe that the symbol has mathematical and geometrical significance, holding within it the key to the Incan understanding of the secret of life.
