Ifa's wisdom

In this age, with the many global concerns and personal obstacles, there is a tendency to feel trapped, helpless and victimized by unknowable forces, the wisdom of Ifa show how anyone, at any time, may claim freedom and peace in a spiritual universe. It is great to see that Ifa's wisdom is being shared in a way that is tangible and used in very practical terms. Too often African Spirituality is regulated to spells and potions. Ifa shows us that it's wisdom can stand firmly in our modern culture and support those who are looking to transform their lives. Reflections on the Wisdom of Ifa as they relate to human conditions and experiences in life provides a different approach, perspective, and understanding to Ifa tradition--quite different from the narrowed view on ebos alone.

Practitioner's Handbook for the IFA Professional  purpose is to offer enough information to those Awo's who may not have access to a local teacher of Ifa. At least you can work with confidence until you can hook up with the correct Oluwo-Ifa. Please be respectful of the Warnings! when it says it requires a person with the proper Ase. It MEANS an initiatated Priest who has gone through Itefa not an orisa priest or non initiate. Lots and lots of excellent material. May Iya continue her great contributions. Ogbo ato. Ifa agbe e.

 Òrùnmìlà is the orisha of wisdom and knowledge, who created the system and method for accessing the knowledge of Ifa which Is the word of Olodumare encompassing all knowledge of things past, present and future. Ifá refers to the system of divination and the verses of the literary corpus known as the Odú Ifá. Songs from  this album Orunmila's Dance are available to purchase as MP3s


Basic primer for those seeking understanding to the traditional belief of the Yoruba, Ifa. Introduction to the Orisa. This book, Ijo Orunmila by Babalawo Fasina Falade, is such a blessing and treasure. I highly recommend it for not only us (Ifa devotees) seeking knowledge and truth, but those interested in a traditional African belief system. I whole-heartily appreciate the way that Baba Fasina has taken time out to explain in detail everyday terms that we use, but probably never knew or understood the true meaning of, such as: Olorun, Iwa, Otito, and Suuru, just to name a few. What's good about this book, besides the sections on Oriki, the Odu's, Libation, etc., which we use in daily worship, are how he correlates it all together as the beautiful and spiritual tradition we know as Ifa. Each section is insightful and in my honest opinion, dispells any mis-conception on how our tradition is perceived or practiced. Baba, adupe pupo (thank you very much) for hearing the call and answering it by writing such a wonderful and inspirational oracle. One would do themselves an injustice NOT to have Ijo Orunmila in their collection. Click Here to get you copy of Ijo Orunmila


Olofín, Oddúa, Inle, Orúnmila, Iroko - Afro Cuban Traditions by Lázaro Ros Y Grupo Olorún
This product is manufactured on demand using CD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply. When I visited Havana in 2002, I was very fortunate not only to meet the great cantor of La Regla de Ocha (aka Santeria) praise-hymns, Lazaro Ros, but also to participate in an initiation ceremony for which he was the lead singer. Unfortunately, he died not long after. He was a marvelous human being. I knew when I ordered this cd that his performance would be great, but I wasn't sure what the quality of the recording might be like. Both are superior. Whenever I play his songs to the Orishas (gods & goddesses or saints), he seems to live again. I strongly encourage you to purchase and play this album.
