Cosmovision of Puriynichick
Puriynicnhik is a Quechua word that reflects the Christian and intercultural journey in the Andes of Peru.
‘Puriy’ means to walk, to advance, to be in pilgrimage.
‘ninchik’ it is suffix that means our; but it also means in the same level, equal, side by side. It also means same accord and belonging.
So, putting all of this together it means, our pilgrimage, our journey together.
What does all of this mean for our organization?
Puriynichik then means that we are in journey together in the Andes. We cannot live individually but in community. We see our life in our wasi (home), in ayllu (family) and in llaqta (community). We live in solidarity with each other but also we strive to make progress together.
In other words, our pilgrimage in the Andean Cosmovision is to live in community; so that Puriyninchik call us for our deep sense of belonging with family, community and God.
Therefore, a life with dignity means a quality life mentally, spiritually physically, with love and respect in family, in solidarity with the community, and respecting the environment in healthy relationship with God.
