8000 Drums Keepers:
“I’m glad to introduce you the Keepers of he 8000 Drums Prophecy & Ceremony: Dabadi Thaayrohyadi & his Otomi Clan and Lineage
As the 8000 Drums Otomi Toltec Prophecy & Ceremony Keepers, also as Earth Keepers and Peacemakers our mission is Healing Mother Earth, Ancestral Memories and All Our Relations.
Our Intention is also to promote Compassionate Love, the Joy of Living and to bring more Peace in the World through Ceremonies, Prayers, Drumming Circles, Concert-Meditations, Sound Healing, Teachings, Great Gatherings, Encounters and Celebrations for Living Well, Unity and Happiness.
The 8000 Drums Ceremony is a prayer of Our Ancestors that has been kept in our Clan and Lineage and transmitted from generations to generations, that is what our grand parents did, this is what our parents did, this is what we are doing with our children and this is what our grand children will do also as Keepers of the 8000 Drums Prophecy and our ancestral wisdom and sacred teachings.
This Ancestral Ceremony for Mother Earth, Unity, Abundance and Gratitude has been celebrated since almost 4000 years ago in ‘Bondo (Cuicuilco), actual Central Mexico. With the birthing of the Volcano Xitle our Tribe came to Ndongu (Xiquipilco) in Temoaya at the Mountains. One of the Great Ceremonies that our Elders remember was with with our Grand Chief Botzanga (our ancestor an member of our Clan and Lineage) who lived around 1440-1492 and the last time was in 1521 when the Spanish and and European Conquers prohibited all our rituals and ceremonies, destroyed a lot of our sacred temples and tried to stop of our spirituality.
Our ancestors said that the time would come for the Return of Our Ancestors, to Heal Together in Unity as One Family, One, People, One Heart, One Consciousness, in order to celebrate again the New Dawn of our Peoples. In the 70’s our Grand Parents started to talk about this, how to bring this ancient wisdom back and our people decided to build a Great Ceremonial Center, where we started to gather since 1980 and in 1999 the prophecy was revealed to the four directions. And in 2004 we called for the fulfillment of the 8000 Drums vision, since then our clan and family have been organizing it annually with an Ancestral Protocol.
In 2017 we are calling for a Worldwide Prayer & Meditation in preparation for the Great Gathering in 2018.” (Hyadi Ndongu, Official Coordinator Program of the 8000 Drums Otomi Toltec Ceremony)
