Says Ifa odu Iroso Kana

If the Odu Iroso Kalu appears for a man, he will be told that he is facing problems in marrying a woman.

He must prepare to receive his own Ifa after which he will meet a woman who has not had children before.

When he appears for a woman, she will be told that she is desperate to have a child. She must go and marry a man who has his own Ifá, subjecting this to confirmation in another divination.

Before the Babalawo marries her, she will be advised to serve her own Ifá with a goat.

Alternatively, if she is already married, she will be advised to persuade her husband to receive Ifa. If the woman does not have child problems, she will be told to try to identify a female relative who is crying for having a child, and advise her to marry a Babalawo since her children are with Orúnmila.

Therefore Orúnmila declared that if this odu appears in the divination as Ayeo (osobo), and announces problems or war, the person will be told that a war is imminent and that he must make sacrifice with a goat to escape the dangers that this entails.

An ikokó is taken and drinks of all kinds are poured, the names of the araye are put on colored fabrics and they are put inside the ikokó, seeds of wonder are put on it and an eyele is given putting Ogún next to it, Taking care that nothing falls on Ogún, incense is done for 4 moons in the house with dry wonder roots, and at the same time the person concerned will wash his face with everything during the work.


If the araye is by means of an Egun, instead of names in the ikokó, the colored fabrics are thrown.

When the araye is through an Egun, it can also be done Oparaldo.

Osun agreed to help him, but Shango did not trust him and did not consider it, when the war escalated, he had to call so that among all those vagrants, they would choose those who were most fit for war and thus he was able to defeat Ogún.

When Ogún was defeated he told Shango: You are not the winner, but Osun and take a good look at who you have allied with, who is stronger than you and will follow you and you will not be able to get rid of him, because he considers himself with rights, because he knows he has more power than you.

Iroso Okana - Iroso Okanran Ifa Traditional

The Divination that they made to him before coming down to Earth.


Tocayos never kill each other. There is a gain of the land. Your enemy does not want you to survive God's judgment. These were the Awoses who guessed for Orúnmila when he came to the World. He was advised to make sacrifice since he was going to experience a lot of enmity on this path of his Ifa exercise. He was told to serve his head with a guinea fowl, his Ifa with a goat, his Guardian Angel with white cloth, chalk and a basket of doves, and Eshu with a goat, half a pumpkin and crushed yam (Elo or Obobo ) He made all the sacrifices and obtained God's blessing before coming down to Earth.

Upon arriving on Earth, he became a great Ifá priest and became very famous because he did not order complicated sacrifices. He almost never ordered sacrifices with a goat. He specialized in making sacrificial akpako or Ebo with very readily available materials.

His modest and measured way of sacrificing nevertheless earned him the discontent of the Ifá priests older than him, who saw sacrifice as a means of making a living from human suffering.

They were quick to accuse him of being a witch as it was generally believed that only priests who were witches were privileged to send moderate sacrifices to their clients. For example, it is believed that an Awó who is not a sorcerer, should in his own interest recommend sacrifices with a goat before attempting to save a victim from the witchcraft of the Ancients of the Night.

However when he denied being a witch, he was ordered to appear before a judgment of God (that is to say to drink the concoction composed of (obo in Yoruba and iyin in Benin). Meanwhile, it was by divination and he was told to serve Eshu with a goat, the meat of an antelope and a rod. He made the sacrifice before appearing for God's judgment. As if the rigors of God's judgment weren't dangerous enough, his enemies also bribed murderers into setting him up and they would kill him in case he survived God's judgment.

He took the concoction of the ordeal and nothing happened. After vomiting the compound, he was given the chalk of innocence and told to return home in triumph. While walking back to his house just before reaching the place where probable enemies were ambushing him, Eshu released a live antelope between them and everyone who was in ambush abandoned their main objective and went after the antelope, which of course they they could not kill.

As they blamed each other for letting the antelope escape, a fight broke out. After fighting and injuring each other, they were all arrested and charged before Obá for disturbing public order. When they were released from the Obá Palace, Orúnmila was already back at home safely.

Even so, as soon as they left the Palace, they insisted on going to his house and ordered him to sing the song of God's judgment, as proof of his survival. He told them that he did not know such a song, but he sang in praise of the Awó that he had divined for him. Having triumphed over his enemies, each of them began to profess sympathy and loyalty to him.
