Resumen

CACERES CHALCO, Efraín. LA MUERTE COMO SANCIÓN Y COMPENSACIÓN: VISIÓN DE EQUILIBRIO Y RECIPROCIDAD EN CUSCO . Chungará (Arica) [online]. 2001, vol.33, n.2, pp.187-200. ISSN 0717-7356.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-73562001000200004.

Death in the sourthern Andes, particularly in the Department of Cusco, is considered a continuation of life. It is not a dislocation, nor a rupture, on the contrary it is considered a natural step from "this life" towards the "other life." This concepct of death is an expression of persistence of basic forms from pre-Hispanic culture (pre-Inka and Inka). Death expresses compensation and equlibrium of opportunities: "If here I had a good life, there I will have a bad one; if here I had a bad life, there I will have a good one." Bad and good life has a connotation of suffering and pleasure. On the other hand, there are possibilities of reciprocal relationships between the deceased and those remaining here, the "Kay Pacha."

Palabras clave : Mortuary rituals; the hereafter; scatolog.
