Pataki of the sign of Ifa Ika Fun:

Oshún had hair again

Oshún had very long hair and helped her sister Yemayá, who had black skin and hair that was difficult to manage. Yemayá envied Oshún because of her hair and the light color of her skin. One day, after Oshún had dedicated the day to dyeing her clothes blue to bring luck to her sister, Yemayá cut Oshún's hair while she was sleeping. Upon discovering that her hair had been stolen, Oshún consulted Orúnmila, who revealed to him that she had been her own sister. Unable to recover her hair and after falling out with Yemayá, Orúnmila, moved by compassion, used pumpkin leaves, ewe fin, ewe fa, rosemary, eru, obi kolá, obi motiwao, indigo, yellow cloth and the remaining hair to create her a bun on the head. With the offering of two quails, Oshún was able to recover his hair.

Explanation: This story teaches us about the damage that envy can cause between loved ones and how, even in the most unfavorable situations, compassion and wisdom can restore harmony and offer solutions. It reminds us that forgiveness and help can come from where it is least expected, fostering resilience and overcoming personal conflicts.

The kidnapping of Obatalá's son

This pataki narrates the harrowing moment when one of Obatalá's sons was captured and taken to a kingdom ruled by Azojuano. The latter demanded from Obatalá a can of corojo butter as a ransom to free his son. Despite Obatalá's willingness to comply with the demand, the strong smell of the butter made him nauseous, preventing him from continuing his journey. Looking for a solution, Obatalá went to Orúnmila, who prescribed him to make an Ebó with rooster, chicken and corojo butter. After completing the ritual, Eshu-Elegba met with Obatalá, promising his help. Eshu-Elegba took the ritual objects and asked Obatalá to wait; Shortly after, he returned with Obatalá's son, thus resolving the situation in a miraculous way.

Explanation: This story highlights the importance of faith and perseverance in the face of adversity. Although Obatalá faced an obstacle that prevented him from directly fulfilling Azojuano's demand, his decision to seek spiritual guidance and comply with the Ebó demonstrated his commitment and determination.
