Ifa The true Religion of Yorubas.Sixteen is the number of cosmos.

Posted by Reunionblackfamily. on May 22, 2011 at 10:30 AM

In the Beginning, Olodumare (God) gave the Orisa Orunmila a flawless method of communication between himself and the Orisa called Ifa. Ifa is linked to destiny through the Ifa the true religion of Yorubas . Sixteen is the number of cosmos; it represents the primal order that issued from the unity of Olodumare.

 (Sixteen is also a significant number in the world of computers.) When the world was first created, it spread out from an original palm tree that stood at the center of the world at Ile-Ife. The palm tree had sixteen branches, which formed the four cardinal points and the sixteen original quarters of Ile-Ife. In political terms, Odudua, the first oni of Ife, fathered sixteen sons who founded the sixteen original kingdoms of the Yoruba. On a deeper level still, Orunmila taught the art of divination to his sixteen sons; they, in turn, passed it down to the Babalawos who practice it today.

Through the linked concepts of order, creation, and destiny, the number sixteen represents the variables of the human condition, the sixteen possible situations of human life. For the Yoruba, the sixteen principle signs are called Odu or Olodu, from each of which are drawn sixteen subordinate signs (omo-Odu, "children of the odu" or Odus).

 These represent the sixteen essential life situations with sixteen possible variations each. This means 256 possible combinations (Odu's) or two to the eighth power. Each Odu is a recital of a set of poems called ese, that provide clues for the resolution of the problem during a divination session. There are at least, and by far not the most, 16 different ese's for each of the 256 Odu. This adds up to at least 4096 different scenarios. The goal of the Babalawo is to arrive at the appropiate Odu for the situation of his "querent".

Each of the 256 Odu reveals an archetypal situation that was resolved in the mythic past through sacrifice to an Orisa. In the thousands of Ifa poems, the Orisa are organized into a community of spirits whose ase (power) can can be brought to bear on the problems of individual men and women in need.

 In this way, Ifa and the Babalawo priesthood are responsible for directing the adherents of all the Orisa's by leading querents to them. Nearly all the sacrifice/ebo of Ifa/Yoruba religion are offered to the Orisa's as a result of divination. Ifa structures Orisa worship; the randomness of the system ensures that all the Orisa's are duly venerated. Through Ifa, the balance of the sacrificial relationship between heaven and earth is maintained, for Ifa, through Odu (word of God), provides human beings with information about their place in the world, their destiny, and what the God's require of them.

 Ifa and the ceremonial life that it generates constitute the organizing principle of the traditional Yoruba religious vision. It is a view that finds human destiny "rooted in the breath of God Almighty". Nothing happens by chance. There is a reason for everything, and it is the duty of human beings to recognize this mystery. Within the Odu lay the hidden messages of the unseen influences. These messages are best interpreted by a well trained Babalawo during a divination session.

This high system of virtue held by hundreds of thousands of Yoruba men and women survived the middle passage to the America's where they (we) were taken as slaves. The deep-rooted virtues, expressed in each Odu, sustained the African through one of history's darkest hours. Continue this cyber journey if you must, as we shed light on the virtues and power (Ase) of the Odu.


Odu...The Orisa

This is an insert from the holy Odu Irete-Ogbe. Let this page shed some light on the Orisa called Odu.

You trample upon the brush. I trample upon the brush.

We trample the brush down together.

Ifa was consulted for Odu by these Awos.

They said, Odu is going from heaven to earth.

Whenever she arrive on earth.

They said, thee Odu, this is your beginning.

Olodumare gave her a bird.

She took this bird with her to earth.

Aragamago is the named that Olodumare gave this bird.

Aragamago is the name that Odu's bird carried.

He said, "You Odu, any undertaking upon which you send this bird, it will do.

He said, "Any place that it pleases you to send this bird, it will go.

He said, "If it is to do bad or good."

He said, Anything that it pleases you to tell it to do, it will do.

Odu brought this bird to earth.

Odu has said that no other person will be able to look upon it.

She said that it must not be looked upon.

If any enemy of Odu looks upon it,

She will shatter his eyes,

With the power of this bird, she will blind the eyes.

If another of her enemies peers into the calabash of this bird.

This bird Aragamago, will shatter their eyes.

She used this bird thusly.

She used it even to get to the house of Orunmila.

Orunmila went to consult his Awos.

The Oracle said, "If we teach intelligence to someone, his intelligence will be intelligent.

If we teach stupidity to someone, his stupidity will be stupid."

The Babalawos of the house of Orunmila consulted Ifa in order to know the day that he would take Odu as his wife.

In this manner Orunmila would take Odu for his wife.

The Awos of Orunmila said "Hee."

They said, Odu that you wish to take for your wife.

A power is in her hands.

They said, because of this power Orunmila must make an offering to the earth.

In the interest of all of his people.

They said, so that with this power, she will not kill and eat him.

Orunmila made the offering.

When Orunmila had made the offering, they consulted Ifa for him.

Orunmila carried the offering outside.

At the arrival of Odu, she found the offering in the street.

Hee! Who has made this offering to the earth?

Ha! Esu said, "Orunmila has made this offering to the earth."

Because he wishes to marry you Odu.

Odu said, not bad.

All the things that Odu carried behind her, these are the bad things.

She told them to eat.

Odu opened the calabash of Aragamago, her bird, to the ground.

She told it to eat.

Odu entered the house.

When she had entered the house, Odu called Orunmila.

She said, "Orunmila, she had arrived."

She said, her powers are numerous.

She said, but she did not wish that they should fight with him.

She said, she did not want to fight with Orunmila.

She said, even if someone asked her help, asked her help to fight him, she would not fight him.

Because if Odu did not wish that Orunmila suffers.

Otherwise, if they wished to make Orunmila suffer. Odu, with the power and with the power of the bird, would fight the people.

When Odu finished speaking thusly.

Orunmila said, not bad.

The time came, Odu said, Thou Orunmila, You are going to learn my taboo.

She said, she wish to tell him her taboo.

She said, she did not want his other wives to see her face.

She said, that he should tell all of his other wives that they should not look at her face.

Whoever looked into her face, she would fight.

She said, she did not want anyone to look at her appearance.

Orunmila said, "Fine!"

He then called all of his wives.

He prevailed upon them.

The wives of Orunmila would not look at Odu's face.

Odu told Orunmila that.

She said, with him she would make his burdens good.

She said, she would heal all things.

She said, anything that he causes to go wrong, she would repair it.

She said, if he observed his taboo.

She said, all things that she completed would be good.

Anyone who would disturb them, she would in turn disturb them.

If Oso (sorcerer) wished to destroy.

She said, she would leave him nothing.

Then he himself would be destroyed.

All his children, who are Awo.

He will implore them that they should never dare to trifle with Odu.

Because Odu is the power of Awo.

He said, if the Awo possesses Ifa, he will also have Odu.

The power that Odu gives him says that.

No woman must look upon her form.

From this day no Babalawo is complete without possessing this Odu.

One who does not have Odu will not be able to consult Ifa.

The day that one comes into possession of Odu,

On that day will he become a person that Odu will not allow to suffer.

Sixteen is the number of cosmos

Opon-Ifa

These are the 256 Odù Ifá. The first are the 16 Meji, or Oju Odù. The next 240 Odù Ifá are combinations of the first 16.

 

The Odù Ifá are patterns of binary code, opened and closed nodules, which represent all of the energies contained in Igba Iwa, The Calabash of Existence, or the Universe.

 

These are the universal energies that give birth to all given circumstances and situations, all the blessings and misfortunes of the universe are contained within them. They hold the key to all the blessings and all the misfortunes of life and death. The Odù themselves are the oracles of the Yorùbá divination systems of Ifá, Obi, and Merindinlogun.

 

It is through the knowledge of these energies, called Odù Ifá, that Babalawo and Iyanifa are able to work with individuals to achieve the greatest potential of their destiny. It is through these Odù Ifá that priests and priestesses of Oriṣa can help people to repair their Orí’s and better themselves.

 

The Odù Ifá are like blueprints to all the energies possible in the universe. Each has verses of esoteric knowledge associated with it along with medicines, rituals, and sacrifices that accompany each of the 256 Odù.

 

Included in this listing of the 256 chapters of Odù Ifá are the names and aliases of the Odù as taught in my lineage of Ifá, which is from Oyo State, Nigeria. Please note that the names and fixed esoteric order of the Odù Ifá may differ from lineage to lineage.

Oladiran, when you mention that every other race emigrated from Africa, this isn't correct. If there were other races of people in africa before they emigrated, surely there would have been traces of them left in Africa? Also, you must understand that African's (who had all the knowledge and wisdom) were not just in Africa, they resided in other parts of the world, civilizing the whites and non-blacks who were still living in darkness. There is documented proof that, according to archeological records, whites have been in existence for between 6,000 and 10,000 years, while Africans have been in this earth for trillions of years. Of course, you'll have lots of questions now, but this is where you start to do some investigations of your own, as I have and begin to process the new knowledge as you progress. Happy hunting!
Ok you said it is not true white people thouht our dna did not come from africa and records show they only been on earth between 6,000-10,000 years my question would be where did they come from? Could it be possible that they did come from africa and their strating point is from albino's? Who are blck people with a genenic defect?

This is an excellent piece.The black race, beginning with the Yoruba must emancipate itself from the mental slavery of old. Late Bob Marley said "None but ourselves can free our mind'" Nothing can be more tue. We need to dig into our past to bring to light the core values of a glorious past, as it truely was.
Every scientific finding now points to the reality that human race originated from Africa, and Odu Ifa incontrovertibly pinpoints Ile-Ife as the starting point. Why must we then allow orselves to be misguided and regarded as an offshoot of some tribes in the "East" . No, every other race emigrated from Africa (Ile-Ife) The Yoruba never emigrated from anywhere..We must never lose sight of this.
The language of Odu Ifa is the languagu of present day computer. How versatile and infinite!!
