Description of Odu Obara Kete

This is Odu # 119 of the Lordly Order of Ifá.

The Odu Obara Irete speaks of success and stability as long as the sacrifice indicated by Ifá is made. The person has good prospects for a new job or business.

The Awó of this Odu must pay special attention to Ogún, because this Saint does not lose his foot or footprint, he becomes his protective or destructive shadow, depending on whether Iré or Osobo del Odu lives.

He will have to take Ogún to the patio and put him to live with Osanyin, and he will put an asheré on him.

Here the ceremony of the Irofá was born, which is one of the weapons that is given to the Alawo in the initiation ceremony.

Irofá: In our country the deer jar is used to replace the original used by the Yoruba, which is a carved object in the shape of a mace with a dimension of 8 to 16 inches long that is made of wood or ivory and in some cases wood -ivory; different carvings are carved on the handle; which are represented by a kneeling pregnant woman, a parrot, the head of an Orisha etc.

This Object is used by the Priest of Ifá to invoke the spirit of Ifá during the divination process. The Priest of Ifá carries out the evocation by striking the board (Opón-Ifá) with said object (Irofá), in order to produce a sound with cadence while simultaneously singing a prayer or praise to Ifá.

I pray when the Irofá is delivered:

Irofa Boroki Boroki, Iru Boya Boroya Orunmila dumi aku shon shon umbati akofa totomio olowashe werire.

Suyere: "Irun Alaboshe Birire, Irun Lafikaye erio Irun."

Here the purification of fresh waters was born, to make them drinkable for consumption.

Here, when the truth arrives, the lie is embarrassed and leaves.

This Odu marks adultery. You must have Osanyin AND Oduduwa.

The person governed by this Odu must from time to time drink Omiero and bathe with it.

Obara Kete Sayings:

  • This is the land where they use the guataca to shave their head.
  • This is the edge of the hoe that uses its mouth to hit the ground with impunity.

Meaning of the odu of Ifa Obara Irete?

For this Odu a silver chain is washed and a small duck is fed, and then used.

For this Ifá: For a woman, for seven days, she must wear a Prussian blue skirt with seven white stripes and on top of it a sky blue skirt and a white blouse.

This is the Ifá of the fan. Oshún will be put fresh with a fan singing: «Umbelere Awó Abure Oshún, Umbelere Awó Abebe Oshún».

This Odu speaks of a praiseworthy person and may have a bloodshed problem for that reason. Also in men, he does not settle for a single woman, he sexually abandons his wife and as a result of this she abandons him or can become unfaithful.

In this Odu he speaks of the güiro who went to the bottom of the river for disobedience. Here the Osobo of this Ifá is to live with daughters of Oshún if their Guardian Angel is Shango, because by Olofin's sentence they can only be friends.

Says Ifa Obara Kete:

That you are unfaithful to your husband, be careful because there is a person who will send it to your partner and will want to kill her.- If it is a man who looks at you, he is told that he does not settle for a single woman and that it does not take to story, so that it does not have witchcraft problems.

You are the daughter of Oshún and when you left your house you tripped on your left foot.

There is a sick man in his house. You are always fighting, and for that reason your business is not going well.-Do not put hints to avoid problems of justice.-Where you live there is a hole be careful not to fall inside.-You have a war with Oshún because she ordered you to do something and you did not comply with it.

He has a brown-colored woman, whose Guardian Angel is the same as yours, that's why they don't get along.- Take care of Oshún and Obatalá so that he can avoid the delays that he has. He has to leave his mistress and live at home with his wife. You have a food shortage problem, you must eat lunch and eat at your hours.

Be careful not to make a fight at home. You have an ailment in your body, be careful with the doctor's blade If you want to advance you have to do Santo.

Everyone at home is upset, because one wants one thing and others want another. Avoid a tragedy, they will still ask for the house. You do not like to do anything that the Saint sends you - be careful that the evil you have is more serious than you think. You have to take care of your throat, esophagus and stomach, as well as a mouth infection or pyorrhea. He is a praiseworthy person who has the defect of telling everything about women, so he can have serious problems for speaking what he should not, they can hurt or kill him for that reason.- You suffer from a disease and do not know puts treatment. You have been given to take witchcraft, that was a woman who had and abandoned her and she curses you a lot, you are very much in love and you like all women, whether they have a husband or not.

Yangi Aboriginal Kugúkugú
He made divination for Olóbàrà
Who was going to occupy a space on the way to the farm
He was advised to offer sacrifice to have a good wife
He asked, 'Will I have a good wife in life?'
They told him not to be stingy
He didn't do it anymore
He started putting food on the road
For all the people who walked and passed by
In olden days
He who is traveling
And he's very hungry
I would find something to eat
And something to drink on the side of the road too
They advised Olóbàrà to continue doing so
They told him that his good fortune was on the way
Those who regularly traveled that route reasoned by saying
"This route we frequent"
We will build a country house for ourselves here
They got together and made the site a city
And they installed Olóbàrà as their King
They made him their leader
For which he was crowned
So it would not be impossible for him to find a wife
They got Olóbàrà a wife to marry him
He started dancing and was very happy
He praised his Babaláwo
His Babaláwo praised Ifá
He said it was exactly as his Babaláwo had said
Yangi Aboriginal Kugúkugú
He made divination for Olóbàrà
Who was going to occupy a space on the way to the farm
He was advised to offer sacrifice
So that I had a good wife
He heard about the sacrifice
And he did
Therefore the wives came to us with ease
The wives entered our house with ease

Patakie of the Obara Kete sign:

When the truth comes, the lie bows its head.

OBARA RETE's grandfather and great-grandfather died and after eleven years they came and told him: «Your ancestors left you an inheritance, which is that you have to do Ifá, with Iroko grass, four black hens and two goats and a goat, they made him Ifá.

After he had done Ifa, the Babalawos told him: "Bobo, we have made you Ifa, but we will never call you to any meeting we have." The Babalawos had the first meeting and kept their words, but they had the need to have to call him and OBARA IRETE went, being the only one who guessed what the man wanted and the problem was solved. However, they took ill will to his attitude and said: "Look at this fool, as he guessed what we could not guess, we will see if at the next meeting that Olofin is going to send us for call we will not invite him."

The day of the meeting with Olofin arrived and they did not invite him, but the case was repeated, they did not guess what Olofin wanted and then OBARA IRETE was called. This immediately solves the problem and Olofin told the other Babalawos: “You are imprisoned.

A short time later, the Babalawos were reunited again and OBARA IRETE was delayed, and when he arrived and knocked on the door he said: "Ago Nileo", and those inside answered with ill will: "Agoya."

Immediately afterwards a man entered with two Irofá in his hands and when he saw OBARA IRETE, he asked him: Are you Awó? He was silent. And then the boy was the one who guessed. The other Babalawos, because they had a bad heart, had to bow their heads in embarrassment.

This says: "When the truth comes, the lie bows its head."

OBARA RETE and the daughters of OSHUN, and the pumpkin.

OBARA KETE was an Awó who lived without organization, since he, possessed by his luck in love, wanted to abuse all of them and deceived them. In his walk through life in love he met a daughter of Oshún and wanted to abuse her, that is, of her generosity, where he came to have her so seduced that she no longer paid attention to her mother Oshún.

Oshún one day went out to the river as usual to do her ceremonies, which she did every five days, when she threw away her shells and saw that she indicated that her daughter was wrapped in the hands of a man who would not make her happy. To be more sure, she went to Orúnmila's house to consult with Ifá.

Orúnmila told him: OBARA RETE thinks that he can make fun of all women, but he doesn't know that you are Olofin's daughter. You take a pumpkin, open a mouth on it and pour honey, Oshún himo grass and present it to Olofin and complain about what is happening. She did so.

It happened that all the women that OBARA RETE had, found out and began to despise him. Seeing himself like this, he had no choice but to go find Oshún's daughter and beg her to forgive him for all the evil he had done to her, because he wanted to be by her side. She forgave him and answered yes, but on the condition that everything that happened to him, he had to tell her.
This is how OBARA RETE was left unable to dominate any daughter of Oshún, and since then all the children of Shango cannot hit or mistreat any daughter of Oshún, because they are delayed or fatalized, since Oshún watches over all her daughters so that they respect her, since they are legitimate daughters of Olofin, just like Shango.

Note: Whoever has or gets this Odu, has to wear a yellow shirt with red trim, put Oshún a pumpkin with its ingredients and five panetelas for five days and take them to the river, pouring it into the same with the plate so that it current takes her sailing.

Here was born the mutual respect that must exist for one another between the sons of Oshún and Shango.
