The Supreme Ruler
One Who Is the Ruler of Time
Mt. Canlaon, situated on the island of Negros, is the largest active volcano in the Philippines and highest mountain in the Visayas region. The mountain is said to be where Laon made his presence to the people. In ancient times, native priests (babaylan) would climb up the mountain and do rituals every good harvest season or when there was a special ceremony. They would also offer gifts as a sign of respect.
