Puma is a careful planner and a contemplative observer. It can wait in cover for a long time before diving in for the definitive strike, pinning down its opponent to the ground. It even has the capability to defeat a black bear in this fashion. Allegorically this is taken as the victory of wisdom and patience over raw brute force.
Together with their inability to scream a loud roar like the rest of its large feline cousins and their stealthy behavior, the puma, also known as mountain cats, make up a secretive, or rather private lifestyle.
This kind of privacy, introversion and solitary conduct is associated with a strong inner peace and personal strength. Contemplative tranquility is a necessary component for personal development and is symbolized by the image of stealthy animals, such as the puma. This behavior also reflects as protective ferocity. The puma is ever watchful of the ones under its protection, standing vigil and on guard.
The Inca have seen puma as a symbol of the earth, one of the three dimensions of their theological cosmology. Puma is the guardian of earth, the wise protector of the overworld. It’s a divine animal that gave its shape to the old capital of the Inca empire. As it has been a symbol of inner resolve and introspective power, the puma was often associated by the priests as a transition from the current world into the inner world. This form of communication between the overworld and the inner world was due to puma being a divine child of the earth.
This was used as a metaphor when the Incan cities were formed in the shape of the puma, as when one part of the empire would lose its head, it would mean being left without any guidance and protection. For this reason puma not only represents predator resilience but also adaptability and wits. It’s the unmistakable depiction of intellect overpowering primal strength.
