IFA on what is Isese

1 Comment

IFA on what is Isese:

The ocean is filled to the brim
The lagoon is filled to capacity
Alasan is going to Asan
Alasan is going to Asan, the Awo of the top of the rock
The elders thought the matter over
And realized that it was no longer favorable
They used their mustaches to cover their faces
And spread their beards firmly over their chest
These were the declarations of Ifa to Isese (Traditionalism)
What is one’s Isese??
Olodumare is one’s Isese
It is Isese we ought to appease
Before appeasing any Orisa
One’s Mother is one’s Isese
Before appeasing any Orisa
It is Isese we ought to appease
One’s Father is one’s Isese
It is Isese we ought to appease
Before appeasing any Orisa
The male genital organ is one’s Isese
It is Isese we ought to appease
Before appeasing any Orisa
The female genital organs one’s Isese
It is Isese we ought to appease
Before appeasing any Orisa
Please let us appease Isese
Isese if the father of all Etutu
The Isese of your mother’s lineage
The Isese of your father’s lineage
May they all give approval to this Ebo
Before we appease any Orisa
