There have been hermaphrodites from the very beginning, and some ancient cultures honor them to this day. in India it is widely considered a great blessing for the Shikhandin or Shikhandi, named after a celebrated transexual warrior hero of the Battle of Kurukshetra in The Mahabharata, to visit the home of a newborn child.

The (Sikhandin) form small bands and roam from village to village playing instruments and singing bhajans where they are treated as truly auspicious and benevolent beings.

In certain mystery school traditions, the Hermaphrodite is represented as the ipsissimus of spiritual attainment, the perfectly formed hierogamy, sacred marriage or syncretic union of the psyche’s animus and anima, mentioned in the above mystical coda and translated here:

VISIT THE WORLD WITHIN AND
YOU WILL FIND THE HIDDEN JEWEL
