Patakie of the Obara Ka sign:

His gruesome childhood.

When he was a child, he developed a disease that affected his entire body. Soon her mother grew tired of the troublesome effects of the disease. One day he took his other two children and left Obara-Ika in the house. Since he could not help himself, he went from one town to another looking for his mother. Every time he came to a town they told him that a woman with two children had just left it. He ended up in the courtyard of a King's house where he settled in
a hidden place inside a cave.

Every day he checked the garbage can, at the back of the King's house, looking for food scraps. One day, the carpenter saw it from the top of a palm tree and alerted the King. They notified the royal guard, who went to look for him and arrested him. When he was in front of the King, he explained how he had been abandoned by his mother and had survived by collecting food from incinerators and garbage dumps. The King ordered one of his wives to take care of him and feed him. He grew up and became an Ifá priest.

The King soon realized its importance and allowed him to practice Ifism with the older priests. He excelled in practice and became a famous fortune teller. One day his mother was brought before the King, tried and found guilty of murder, and sentenced to die by execution. Recognizing his mother, he couldn't resist the urge to identify with her. He requested and had an aside with the King that gave him the opportunity to tell him that the condemned woman was
his mother.

The King reacted by asking her how many children she had had and what had become of them. He told her that he had three children and that one of them had died many years ago and the other two had gone their separate ways. Obara-Ika that was originally called Gbala and later the name was changed to Boripe. The King asked her if she had had a son named Boripe and she said no. But the son explained to the King that he was originally called Gbala and when the

Rey questioned the mother by that name, she explained that that was the son who died. At that point, the son identified himself, as the son she had abandoned to death because of his illness. The woman became hysterical and began to cry.
The King changed the verdict and spared her life, and ordered that a goat and a hen be slaughtered where the woman was to be executed. And she was allowed to return home with her son.

When this Ifá appears in IGBODU, the person is warned not to make fun of anyone. That you are destined to leave your birthplace and settle elsewhere. He must serve Ifá with a goat that will protect him from death, but first he must add a hen, to avoid being penalized for an offense that he is unaware of. In an ordinary search, the person must serve ESHU with a goat to avoid an accusation of which he is innocent.

Ifá wishes the fortune of riches to this person. He must try to curb his excesses. If he is not excessive in actions, he will be wealthy. A mature pigeon is the sacrifice. Ifá wishes you the good fortune of peace and love of the people. He must not disregard the taboos or ignore the advice given to him especially by his wife.

Everything we do
We must not overdo it
They made divination for the Hunter who would hunt in the dungeons in search of wealth
The one who would hunt for an alligator for three years
He had hunted and gone through every known forest
He wondered then how he could make the riches
They advised him to make sacrifice
They told him that he would finally get rich
And that his wealth is next to him
In the third year
When he was picking up the trash
He found an alligator that was on the ground
The alligator begged him 'You Hunter please don't kill me',
The alligator asked him 'What are you really looking for'?
Sadly, the hunter replied, 'I am hunting in order to get rich'
The Cayman replied 'Okay',
The alligator said 'Take off your pants'
Shakily the Hunter took off his pants
'Take off your shirt too'
The Hunter was then completely naked
The Cayman continued Go and throw that rope, while aiming to throw the rope
The Hunter threw the rope
As soon as he pulls the rope
He came across a city populated with women
And in the city of women where he found himself
All the women were completely naked
There was no man among them
They were so many
Immediately the women saw it, they began to caress them
He ecstatically said 'That's what we call the Penis'
The women wanted him to be with him
And the ones he was with
They all got pregnant
As they were giving male children
They were also the productive females
Once he woke up
He was still with them, as many as he wanted
When the women realized that he was the only one once again among them
They gave the Hunter a home
And the house had, three quarters
The women instructed him 'These first two rooms',
'You can enter as many times as you like'
'But the third'
'Never go near'
Meanwhile, his house was simply on the border outside of town
His house was like a king's palace
He was enjoying life
The women would kneel
And they would give him food to eat on his knees
On a fatal day
Hunter started wondering 'what kind of weirdness is this'?
'That a group of women are instructing me'?
'By restricting myself from walking in some areas of the house'?
'And telling me not to go into a specific room'?
'And stripping me from another'?
Whatever we do
We must not overdo it
They made divination for the Hunter who would hunt the dungeons in search of wealth
The one who would hunt for an alligator for three years
You sweeper
You were given a taboo
Never neglect it
You were given a taboo
If you ever neglect it
You will suffer the consequences
You were given a taboo
Never neglect it
The Hunter entered the third quarter
He leapt into the earth with a deafening noise
He himself came to the place where he had removed his clothes in the beginning with his clothes still on the ground.
