EKAABO — WELCOME

Aboru Aboye

It is our mission to help people connect with Spirit and in doing so, help them to follow their destiny and to be the best person they can be.

“Ifa, do you not deserve praise?
Ifa, you really deserve praise!
The life of the Moon is more pleasant than that of the Sun.
It does not smart the body,
It does not bite the body,
Also, it is not painful to the body.”

-Sacred Odu Ifa OYEKU OFUN

This site is to keep the community informed about upcoming events within our small ORISA/IFA community and also as a central meeting place for our small community here on the net.

My Suffering Ends Today — Tomorrow My Life Will Be Convenient…

The Awo who is small and inexperienced, that is the Awo of today
The Awo who is matured and capable, that is the Awo of tomorrow
The banana tree lives by the stream and flourishes
The Awo of He-who-knows-today-and-tomorrow
Ifa’s declaration to My-suffering-will-end-today
Child of Agboniregun
When coming from Heaven to Earth
he was advised to offer Ebo
He heard and complied
Now, my suffering ends today
By tomorrow my things will be easy
My suffering ends today
Tomorrow my life will be convenient
If one staff is used to bead the Dundun drum
200 gongs will shake in the process
My suffering ends today
Tomorrow my life will be convenient

Ifa is Truly One’s Sympathizer…

Otura went to Ira but did not get there
Akoki went on a journey but never return
Truthfulness is more satisfying than lying
Ifa’s message for he who has relatives
And has family members
But who has no sympathizer
He was advised to offer ebo
He complied
There is no sympathizer as Olorun
Olorun is one’s sympathizer
There is no sympathizer as one’s Ori
One’s Ori is one’s sympathizer
There is no sympathizer as one’s Ifa
One’s Ifa is truly one’s sympathizer

We Pray from Sacred Odu Ifa Ejiogbe…

We pray from Sacred Odu Ifa Ejiogbe:
The spice of the vegetable is the name of IFA
Peace is the name of Ewe Tete
Mother Earth rejects force
She embraces meekness
Violence is no longer on Earth
There only remains peace
Cast Ifa for the Iroko tree in the wilderness
The one that was asked to fruit Okun Beads
And even brass ornaments
Iroko, please do not fruit violence and struggle
Peace is what Iroko has been ordained to produce
