The Odu ifa casted for today’s Itadogun Ifa reading is OGBE-OSA with ire aiku (blessing of longetivity). Ifa ask us to make sacrifice for long life and prosperity and to make offering for ifa so that we can escape death and all evil things of life.
Ifa said and I quote:
“Owo riyan, owo suke,
Atanpako ri agbado ojo o se muluku muluku
Adifa fun ese kan soso ogbe to ma gbe omo sa gun aja nitori iku,
Won ni ebo kose,
Nje, iku wole mi ko ba mi,
keregbe ofifo, iku e ku arindanu,
Arun, ejo, ofo, gbogbo irunbi wole mi ko ba mi,
keregbe ofifo, gbogbo irunbi ema ku arindanu,
Arindanu le o ma rin dandan”
“The shape of the hand becomes hunch while with pounded yam,
The toes mystically become shaping while it sees a grown maize,
Cast divination for one legged verse of OGBE that was going to protect his children from all evil.
Thus, death approaches my home, it did not meet me,
Death and all evil has lost a battle over my household.”
Ela ‘boru. Ela ‘boye. Ela ‘bosise.
