Pataki of the sign of Ifa Osa Bara:


On this path, OGUN and IKU had the strength in the World. In the land of Bokura Yorun, under that rule they had deceived OLOKUN who was going to the party they were celebrating and all those who lived in these lands were crazy. IKU, EGUN AND OLOKUN went to the party every year and OGUN and IKU dressed in bells and fabrics of all colors and began to sing: «OLOKUN ABA IKU AWANA LOKUN EGUN EGUN ABA LODEO ARAYIRE IKU EGUN TABA ABA NIBE OLOKUN BAW BAWAO IKU ».

OLOKUN, brought everything to OGUN and IKU, but OLOKUN was a year with her daughter, who ORUNMILA had baptized her and named her LERI PESHI IKU EGUN, when OLOKUN, was arriving to the land where they were, OGUN and IKU, the OLOKUN's daughter LERI PESHI IKU EGUN, something entered her as if she were EGUN.


OGUN and IKU, who saw that ceremony were scared and saw that all the people were taking off their clothes and throwing OLOKUN up. OLOKUN was also scared, he grabbed his daughter and took her away;


Leri Peshi Iku Egun, took off the mask that he was wearing on his face and when IKU saw her, he was surprised, he broke off to run and got lost, the daughter of OLOKUN, came to a ditch, washed her face and continued with OLOKUN and she scolded her, she did not answer anything, that is why ESHU came along with SHANGO and OLOKUN greeted them, gave them Moforibale and then spoke secretly with ESHU so that SHANGO would not hear him.

ESHU, OLOKUN, his daughter and SHANGO, continued together on the road and he was telling him how the people of the earth dressed SOKUBA YOKUN, SHANGO said: You have to tell ORUNMILA, to see what to do.

When they saw ORUNMILA and they told them, he said that they had to make Ebó and dress a doll with nine heads and bells, before arriving in the city and that they had to light the candles at dawn, to take away the great power from OGUN and IKU with all the children of this world.

ORUNMILA asked SHANGO AND ESHU, when would OLOKUN return, and they said, we are going there, ESHU AND SHANGO arrived where OLOKUN and made him a meal and OLOKUN tells him the pain that happens to his daughter, when she was going to have fun, that what you do feed them and give them strength; "They are deceiving you."

The daughter immediately got that; OLUKUN. He noticed what happened to his daughter again and told her: - «I'm going with them, Osa Bara». You will go later to have the strength of OGUN and IKU removed and you will dress as you have to dress, we will go ahead playing the Baatá.

OLOKUN said: No, I will only carry one drum, ESHU will carry one; You, SHANGO the other, my daughter will carry the asheré. They did so at dawn, they lit a single candle, they put a jar of drink. The smell of that gave them and they all drank, OGUN and IKU.

SHANGO AND ESHU were playing the drum, dawn came, when OGUN and IKU saw that OLOKUN entered they were scared, ESHU and SHANGO grabbed OGUN, IKI and LERI PESHI LERI EGUN; They gave him more drinks and they fell asleep.

SHANGO AND ESHU, they made sarayeye to all the people and Ebó Misi and they were getting better and losing their strength. OLOKUN began to dance with all the masks he had.

OGUN and IKU got scared and asked for forgiveness; OLOKUN cursed them and said: You OGUN, you will have strength with your irons to receive fire and develop the world, you will be powerful in this, but from then on your intelligence will run out and you will be a slave. Your IKU, who has been deceiving me, you will not be able to eat any human being until OLOFIN orders you to.

So ESHU brought herbs and they made Omiero, they called LERI PESHI IKU EGUN, they gave him the blood of 9 pigeons along with OGUN and IKU and all of that land, and they took away his intelligence and gave him strength, and at the same time they spread the intelligence universally .

ESHU and SHANGO demonstrated to OLOKUN "That intelligence dominated strength." He blessed his daughter and left for Ifa and thanked her.
