The Mayan grandmothers and grandfathers have left us with the mandate to give thanks at the beginning of our activities to the people who make the existence of that moment of our lives possible. Fulfilling that mandate, I first invoke the force that is unseen but still exists, which we Mayans call Bitol and others know as God, Jehovah or Allah. I also thank Rev. Dr. Sun Myung Moon and his family for their contribution to humanity in promoting a culture of peace.

Las abuelas y los abuelos Mayas nos han dejado el mandato de generación de agradecer al principio y al final de nuestras actividades, a las personas que hacen posible un momento de nuestra existencia en nuestra vida. Cumpliendo con este mandato, lo hago primero invocando a esa fuerza que no se ve pero existe, que los Mayas lo llamamos Bitol, otros lo conocen como Dios, Jehová, Alá. Agradezco también al Rev. Dr. Sun Myung Moon y su familia por su contribución a la humanidad en el fomento de una cultura de paz.
