Klugyalmo Sripé Tanla Phapa

Klugyalmo Sripé Tanla Phapa – The Klu Queen Who Set the Universe in Water

In the beginning, Klugyalmo Sripé Tanla Phapa the water snake emerged from the primeval void. Her body became and is the universe:

• Her flesh is Earth

• Oceans are her blood

• Rivers are her veins

• Mountains are her bones

• The top of her head is the sky

• Clouds are her breath

• Her left eye is the sun

• Her right eye is the moon

• Four of her teeth became Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn

• The rest of her teeth form the Mansions of the Moon

When you step on the ground, you’re standing on a gigantic snake. If you take a dip in the sea, you’re swimming in her blood. Look outside: daytime means Klugyalmo Sripé is awake. When she sleeps, it’s night.
