Tomorrow is one of the most important days of traditional Yoruba culture: the celebration of the Oke Itase 2019, the world divination of Ifá that takes place on the first Saturday of June in Ilé Ife.
For days babalawo from all the lineages of Nigeria have been coming to the Yoruba capital to participate in the ceremonies prior to this divination that covers the whole world. Our Ifá teachers have sent us the exclusive invitation to the Oke Itase 2019 celebration through an audio that we present to you for the first time and that you can now listen to (turn on the sound).
The Araba of Ilé Ife is the one who directs all the divination, which is in charge of making the minor babalawo in the Ifá temple. Once the sign comes out, the elders talk about what Ifa warns in the Odù of the Oke Itase or Letter of the Year, and then perform the ceremonies that allow it to be cleaned.
Thus, one more year, in Ilé Awo we will simultaneously follow this divination from Nigeria and we will present them during the night, in scoop, the sign revealed in the Oke Itase or Letter of the Year 2019, and through the applications Ifá Tradicional Pro and Ojú Odù will have detailed information about the Dice Ifá and the akose that are recommended to promote all kinds of luck and overcome all obstacles.
It is important to remember that like the thousands of people who come to Ilé Ife to participate in the celebration of Oke Itase 2019, all Ifá followers in the world who practice traditional religion must perform the ebo and ceremonies that the sign marks, and take into account the warnings of the Odù throughout the year. If you wish to obtain more detailed information on the ceremonies to perform once the Oke Itase 2019 celebration takes place, we invite you to contact us.
