IFÁ - OHÙN OLÓDÙMARÈ
(IFÁ - Voice of Almighty God)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This work is dedicated to the memory of those Priests and Priestesses of ÒRÌSÀ who passed on the sacred knowledge of this rich oral tradition of the Yorùbá cosmology. We are honored to be able to document and use today’s technology as a vehicle to preserve our tradition in a format that enables us to share it with the world. It has been a spiritually empowering journey and a labor of love. Aside from its exceptional spiritual value, this collection will be useful to students in the area of linguistics, anthropology, African studies and others. It contains two recitations for each of the sixteen major ODÙ IFÁ. It will be published in five languages – Yorùbá, English (available now); (Coming soon in Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese and Haitian Kreyòl ).

IFÁ is one of the sacred oral texts of the Yoruba people of West Africa (parts of present-day Nigeria, Benin, Burkina Faso). This ancient corpus contains the history, cosmology, worldview, linguistic heritage, medical tradition and ethical legacy of the Yoruba people and has been preserved orally through poetic form. ODÙ IFÁ is organized into 256 distinct sections: 16 major ODÙ and 240 minor ODÙ - each containing an innumerable quantity of verses. Traditionally, ODÙ are memorized and transmitted orally by a cadre of priests known as babalawo, who reference the text during divination in order to provide guidance to people seeking advice and resolve for personal issues.
