Initiations at Oyeku Ofun Temple

Orisa Initiation– We perform initiation rites to many Orisa here at our temple. It can be arranged depending on the availability of priests and priestesses. The price of the ceremony will vary depending on some factors such as the cost of materials and the cost of travel for the priestesses to come do the initiation.

Ifa Initiation (Itefa)– We perform itefa Ifa initiation rites for any man or woman here at our temple. We perform full itefa and itelodu for our initiates in the traditional manner. Also we train those initiated here and also those who have been initiated elsewhere. Please contact us for training information or initiation information.

Ceremonies and Initiations in Nigeria, West Africa– We also host trips to Nigeria for initiations to Ifa, Orisa, Ogboni, for chieftaincy installation ceremonies, etc. Also we take people who are interested to visit and not necessarily for their initiation rites. Please contact us for details.

  1. ON INITIATIONS=IS IT POSSIBLE WE HAVE ALL THE REQUIRED MATERIALS NEEDED FOR EVERY INTIATIONS IN USA,?????????OR we can improvise things to make things happened ,This is my question, and many BABAALAWO AND IYAALAWO ASKED ME THE SAME QUESTION,PLS.REPLY US,FOR ACCURACY AND FOR IMPROVEMENTS.

    • Aboru Aboye,
      All required materials for IFA or ORISHA initiations and other rituals that are not available locally sourced can be sent from abroad. It is certainly not a problem, as we usually have most all needed materials on hand here at Oyeku Ofun Temple. Blessings to you and your family, IRE O

  2. ITA= MEANS THE 3RD DAY OF AN ANY INITIATION=It also meant THREE=3RD OJO-KETA=THE 3RD DAY.
    ORORUN, OR ORUN=IS EVERY FIVE./FIVE DAYS ,EVERY WEEK OF IFA,OR EVERY MARKET DAYS ,as designed by OBATALA AND SACTIONED BY ORUNMILA-BABA IFA.
    ESAN-THE 9th-day when babaalawo and the iyaalawo meet for purposes.
    ITADOGUN-DAY = IS MEANT ,ETADINLOGUN-TWENTY MINUS THREE=20-3=17 DAYS,
    ERINDOGUN.=TWENTY MINUS FOUR =20 – 4,
    IF 20-3 ,Is called 17 ,and 20-4 is called 16 in Yoruba language of IFA,
    FROM 15 ,Yoruba counts minus and FROM 20 ,Yoruba counts PLUS ,We say 20 =ogun,21=okanlelogun = twenty plus one ,22 =ejilelogun= twenty plus two,23=etalelogun=twenty plus three .
    HENCE, ”ETADOGUN”WILL BE 20-3 Which is 17 days reading ,and not 16 days reading which is 20-4 as it’s being called ERINDINLODUN,
    ONE=1,TWO =2,THREE=3 and FOUR=4. All these numbers from 15 are MINUS,All these numbers pick aback of number 20 are PLUSES,WE GOT TO BE A LITTLE MORE DILLIGENT IN SOME SIMPLE IFA -LANGUAGES.Prince Babatunde Ifagbemiro,SC

  3. I LOVE THIS. INFACT, IT REALLY SHOWS THAT WITH PEOPLE LIKE YOU, THE IFA DIVINATION WILL STILL HOLD A VERY BASE IN THE WORLD
