Wakan Tanka and the sacred – Wakan Tanka y lo sagrado


 
Those who are healed do not talk about it among themselves and spread the news. That is not the Sioux way. If a thing is holy and sacred, if it is a miracle, it is not talked about. It is too special for that. Visions we receive are in the same category. They are something personal between Wakan Tanka (the Great Spirit) and the seeker that affects the whole of his life. Even the person’s family will not discuss it or tell their friends.

Los que han sido curados no lo comentan entre ellos ni lo propagan. Ese no es el proceder de los Sioux. Si algo es sagrado, es un milagro, y no se habla de ello. Es demasiado especial como para hacerlo. Las visiones que recibimos están en la misma categoría. Son algo personal entre Wakan Tanka (el Gran Espíritu) y el buscador, y que afecta a la vida entera de éste. Incluso su familia no hablará de ello ni se lo comunicará a sus amigos.
