Who is Amaru?
Amaru is famous in Indian intellectual history, but still largely unknown except for the literary legacy he left behind. In using the name Amaru, we cannot be certain of designating a specific individual who is the author of the poems included in the collection bearing his name. Biography in India is hagiography, and in this case, the hagiographical embellishments become important components in later interpretations of his poems.
Amaru is a fictional character from the 2008 film Naruto: Shippūden the Movie 2.
Amaru: In mythology of Andean civilizations of South America, the amaru or amaro is a mythical serpent or dragon, most associated with the Tiwanaku and Inca empires. In Inca mythology, the amaru is a huge double-headed serpent that dwells underground. Illustrated with the heads of a bird and pumas, amarus can be seen emerging from a central element in the center of a stepped mountain or pyramid motif in the Gateway of the Sun at Tiwanaku, Bolivia. When illustrated on religious vessels, the amaru is often seen with bird-like feet and wings, so that it resembles a dragon. The amaru was believed capable of transgressing boundaries to and from the spiritual realm of the subterranean world.
