Kanaloa Picture

Los cuatro principales dioses en la mitología Hawaiana son Kane, Ku, Lono y Kanaloa. Kane fue el dios de la luz del sol, el agua dulce, y la vida natural. Ku era el dios de la guerra y la de los hombres de generación de energía. Lono era el dios de la paz, la fecundidad, los vientos, la lluvia y el deporte. Kanaloa fue dios de los océanos.

Kanaloa suele relacionarse con Kane en leyendas y cantos en los que se presentan como poderes complementarios. Kanaloa era el dios de los océanos, un dios sanador, y Kane, el dios de la creación. A lo largo de sus viajes juntos, comparten la bebida sagrada de "awa" y abren la tierra, creando los manantiales de agua dulce.

Él es el dios de calamar, en el llamado Ka-Kumulipo he'e-hauna-wela, una oración invoca a Kanaloa para curar una bajo la influencia de la brujería:

"Kanaloa, dios de los calamares,
Aquí está tu hombre enfermo"

Los pescadores solicitaban su protección, mediante el rito de he-henalu (surf)

Kanaloa se considera también el dios de los infiernos y un maestro de la magia. Algunas leyendas cuentan que se convirtió en el líder del primer grupo de espíritus expulsados por los dioses al inframundo por revelarse a la prohibición de beber "awa". Entonces se convirtió en señor de los muertos.

Desde entonces Kanaloa había permanecido en las sombras hasta que decidió volver, reencarnado en forma de sonidos reverberados desde las profundidades del océano...

Kanaloa is one of the four great gods of Hawaiian mythology, along with Kāne, Kū, and Lono. He is the local form of a Polynesian deity generally connected with the sea. Roughly equivalent deities are known as Tangaroa in Aotearoa, Tagaloa in Sāmoa, Tangaloa in Tonga, and Taʻaroa in Tahiti.

In the traditions of ancient Hawaiʻi, Kanaloa is symbolized by the squid or by the octopus, and is typically associated with Kāne in legends and chants where they are portrayed as complementary powers (Beckwith 1970:62-65). For example: Kāne was called upon during the building of a canoe, Kanaloa during the sailing of it; Kāne governed the northern edge of the ecliptic, Kanaloa the southern; Kanaloa points to hidden springs, and Kāne then taps them out. In this way, they represent a divine duality of wild and taming forces like those observed (by Georges Dumezil, et al.) in Indo-European chief god-pairs like Odin-Tyr and Mitra-Varuna, and like the popular yin-yang of Chinese Taoism.

Kanaloa is also considered to be the god of the Underworld and a teacher of magic. Legends state that he became the leader of the first group of spirits "spit out" by the gods. In time, he led them in a rebellion in which the spirits were defeated by the gods and as punishment were thrown in the Underworld.

However, depictions of Kanaloa as a god of evil, death, or the Underworld, in conflict with good deities like Kāne (a reading that contradicts Kanaloa and Kāne's paired invocations and shared devotees in Ancient Hawaii) are likely the result of European missionary efforts to recast the four major divinities of Hawaiʻi in the image of the Christian Trinity plus Satan. In traditional, pre-contact Hawaiʻi, it was Milu who was the god of the Underworld and death, not Kanaloa; the related Miru traditions of other Polynesian cultures confirms this.

The Eye of Kanaloa is an esoteric symbol associated with the god in New Age Huna teaching, consisting of a seven-pointed star surrounded by concentric circles that are regularly divided by eight lines radiating from the inner-most circle to the outer-most circle.
