Ifa Code of Ethics of Odu Iroso Fun:

Pataki of the sign of Ifa Iroso Ofun:

The divination made for Orunmila before coming down to Earth.

Efun fun lere, was the Awo who divined for Orunmila when he was going to go down to Earth. He was advised not to dedicate himself to the exercise of Ifá but to trade. He was told to make sacrifice with 16 doves, a goat, a piece of white cloth and 201 cowries for his Guardian Angel. In addition he was told to serve Eshu with a goat, corn, yams, plantain. He made all the sacrifices before coming down to Earth.

Upon arriving on Earth, he began the practice of Iphism, but he did not have a stable life. Apart from that he was very effective as an Ifa Priest, but he did not prosper with it. Later when he went for divination, he was told that he had strayed from the path of his destiny, and that he was supposed to engage in trade. He was told to serve Ifá by decorating his throne with white chalk and a white cloth. Also to serve Olokun with a dove, a bag of cowries, money and chalk, and to serve Eshu with a goat, corn, yams, banana. He made all the sacrifices.

When Olokun received the sacrifices, he remembered the sacrifice which Irosun-Ofun made in Heaven and the promise to help him. Olokun reacted by sending his beautiful daughter, dressed all in white, to look for Iroso Ofun in Oja Ajiabomekon. At the same time, Iroso Ofun was told to wear white when he went to the market. When Olokun's daughter arrived at the market, she became the center of attraction, however she did not speak to anyone. She was only looking for the man dressed in white that her father had told her about.

A short time later, Iroso Ofun, also dressed in white, met Olokun's daughter and they fell in love instantly.

When he introduced himself to her, she decided to walk him home. When she arrived at his house to see the decoration and all the white ornaments that were everywhere, she told him that his house, having such a pleasant atmosphere, inspired her pleasure for her to stay. He soon discovered that the only food she ate was white chalk, which gave him the idea of ​​who she was.

Meanwhile, the woman advised him to always dress in white and always accompany her to the market.

Each market day, his servants brought goods from Heaven to sell on Earth, after which the money from the sales was given to him. The next market day his servants arrived with beads, jewels and elephant tusks which were all sent to Orunmila's house. Most of the materials brought by Olokun's servants had never been seen before anywhere on Earth. The Oba of the city, later attracted by them, bought some things from Orunmila at a price of 200 men and 200 women.

When the other Obases saw the ornaments of the Obá of the city, they also came to buy identical products from Orúnmila. He was following the path of his destiny and became extremely rich. By the way, Olokun's daughter did not have any children with him.
