Why Did We Feel The Need To Publish This Book?

“Ifa n gbaye lo ogberi ko mo / Ifa is spreading globally but the nonbelievers are unaware”

This book is for the betterment of IFA and ORISA traditional religion / worship in that our practice, while growing rapidly in many parts of the world, is near suffering for lack of wisdom and knowledge on one of the most crucial and central parts of our traditions – Odu Ifa.
As a very wise Iyanifa once said, without the wisdom of Ifa, we are like children who are lost without our parents. Without the wisdom of Ifa, as passed down orally for many many generations thorough Ese Ifa (Ifa verses), our traditions are like those lost children. We need the wisdom of Ifa to better our lives, and the lives of those around us.

Otura Owonrin teaches us:
“Ifa ni ti ba ji
Ogbon ni ka maa ko ‘raa wa
Ka ma jii ni kutukutu pile e were
Oro ti a ba ro ti ko ba gun
Ikin eni laa kee si…

Ifa says that whenever we wake up
We must be teaching each other wisdom
We must not wake up at dawn and lay the foundation of foolishness
That matter which we deliberated upon but could not arrive at a satisfactory solution
We brought that matter to our Ikin Ifa…”
My prayer is that we will all be continuing to share and spread the wisdom of our Ancestors as passed down through the Ifa corpus. Ase O

Sincerely and with love,
Apena Fagbemijo Amosun Fakayode
