Why we Prostrate for IFA!



This is a verse of Ifa from Ogbe Ate ( ogbe irete ) tell us why we prostrate: (lay flat on the ground) before Ifa:



Ope ja suuru kanle

Dia fun Orunmila

To ji l’owuro kutukutu

Ti nsunkun oju oun o kan’re

Ebo ni won ni ko waa se

O gb’ebo, O ru’bo

Nje aje lo wu mi mo wole Ifa

Mariwo Ope ja suuru kanle

Iwo l’Awo ojumo ire o

Aya/Oko ire lo wu mi mo wole Ifa

Mariwo Ope ja suuru kanle

Iwo l’Awo ojumo ire o

Omo ire lo wu mi mo wole Ifa

Mariwo Ope ja suuru kanle

Iwo l’Awo ojumo ire o

Ire gbogbo lo wu mi mo wole Ifa

Mariwo Ope ja suuru kanle

Iwo l’Awo ojumo ire o



Translation:

The palm-frond broke and dived straight to the ground

This was Ifa’s message for Orunmila

When he woke up early in the morning

And was weeping his inability to sight any ire of life

He was advised to offer ebo

He complied

I want wealth and I prostrate myself for Ifa

Mariwo Ope ja suuru kanle

You are the Awo of a marvelous dawn

I need a good spouse and I prostrate myself for Ifa

Mariwo Ope ja suuru kanle

You are the Awo of a marvelous dawn

I crave for good children and I prostrate myself for Ifa

Mariwo Ope ja suuru kanle

You are the Awo of a marvelous dawn

I pray for all ire of life and I lie flat for Ifa

Mariwo Ope ja suuru kanle

You are the Awo of a marvelous dawn


We are all praying for all blessings in life as we all lay flat on the ground, may we all see the blessings of Olodumare. Ase o
