Ifa Initiation

Here are some pictures of a powerfull trip to the mother land,  This ceremony was in the house and temple of the current Araba of Lagos in Lagos City Nigeria “Araba Fatunmbi Agboola ”  here is a Picture with Fatunmbi himself

I was thinking of writting something here but i think the pictures speak for themself , im honestly a bit emotional just looking at the pictures i will try and wrtite something at a later moment , feel free to comment or ask any questions.




9 yr old IyanIfa holding ESU next to Babalawo IfaKolade who is holding Osun staff and directing this particular ceremony which was done outside on the rhoad. One thing i found very interesting was that none of this was hidden from the public , religion is not a secret and even those who do not follow Yoruba tradition respected what one was doing. As you can see from what the pictures show some of this was done out in the open the same way it has been done for thousands of years.
