Patakie of the sign Odi Bara:

The goose that lays the golden eggs.

There was a man who suffered from sores on his legs and ORUNMILA had been treating him for 7 months, and the man neither improved nor worsened, because for ORUNMILA "IT WAS THE HEN OF THE GOLDEN EGGS." Since ORUNMILA paid for the expenses of the house for what it charged for its services to the man.

One day, ORUNMILA had to go to initiate some godchildren and, that day, the man went to ORUNMILA's house to look for him. YEMAYA, who was ORUNMILA's wife, told him: "He is not there, but if it is the same to you, I will attend to him." The man replied: -My problem is my leg, I have been suffering from this condition for a long time and I cannot be cured. YEMAYA looked at him and sent him poultices with coastal vine. The man did so and was cured. In gratitude, he gave her many gifts.

When ORUNMILA returned, she told him about the man and that he had cured him and had congratulated her with many gifts. ORUNMILA upon hearing what YEMAYA said, replied: You killed the Hen that laid the golden eggs. She replied: What chicken ?.

And this one answered him. I have been treating and treating this man for months, and during that time, he is the one who has covered the expenses of this house. Then ORUNMILA thinks and says: It doesn't matter, take these snails, I'll give them to you so that from today you can also look. But nothing more than until EYILA and you will leave the house, because a woman who knows more than I can not live with me.

Also everything that happens about EYILA you send it to me. Uncle Iban Eshu.

Odi Obara Ifa Traditional

He made divination for the peasant and the deer (Agborin in Yoruba and Erhue in Benin).

The deer had developed the habit of feeding on a farm that had rich crops of yams, corn, and cassava. When the farmer discovered that his farm and especially his crops were in danger from the attack of the serfs, he decided to watch out for intruders.

For its part, the deer always knew when not to enter the farm since the farmer was nearby. Aware that her luck was not going to last forever, the deer decided to consult Orúmila's house, who advised him to entertain Esu with a goat and warned him never to go to the farm with his children. .

When the deer was ready to leave for his house, he spotted the peasant who was coming and went back to Orúmila's house. When she explained that the man on the way was the peasant she had told him about, Orúmila told him to hide in his room.

When the farmer entered, he told Orúmila that he had gone to see him to discover and capture the deer that was devouring his crops and his farm. He advised the peasant to entertain Esu with a goat and Ogun with a turtle. He also told him to tell the deer:

Latanbo, lole bo
adafa fun agbonrin
To fi oko ode sapo.

Orúmila told him that after making a sacrifice, he would set a trap on the path that deer normally follow to reach his farm. The peasant made the sacrifice quickly, but for his part the deer considered it unnecessary to make the sacrifice since he knew the peasant's strategy. He only thought that he should change his itinerary so as not to fall into the traps of the peasant. When Esu discovered that the deer had refused to sacrifice he decided to lure it to the route where the traps were placed.

The deer had told his youngest son to go ahead, contrary to everything advised in the consultation, not to go to the farm with his children. The trap captured the young deer and the mother managed to escape.

As a token of appreciation for his advice, divination and sacrifice made by him, the peasant brought the hand of the young deer to Orúnmila. This is how the tradition of using the hand of the deer during the initiation of Ifá began.
