Ose Jakuta

Happy Ose Jakuta. Kabiyesi o Sango oko Oya.

All praise and reverence today to Sango and his favored wife Oya.As we give worship to Sango today we are reminded of the strength to speak truth to power, courage, strategy and willpower.
Sango helps us overcome all adversities and enemies but he also assists us with our inner spirit and elevation. The fires of Sango purifies and cleanses all our our impurities, leaving behind only that which serves to help us fulfill our chosen destiny with the royalty and grace of a King.

Oya the wife and consort of Sango is his counterpart and matches Sango in strength and courage. Oya brings necessary changes and growth. She is necessary endings for new beginnings, death and changes. Faithfulness and an unwavering sense of purpose. Ifa teaches us that everything in nature exists with it polar opposite.

We call this the principle of duality. Sango and Oya perfectly represent this as they balance fire upon their heads without ever being burned. May this remain so for us as well.

Prayer to Sango

Iba Sango
Alaafin, ekun bu, a sa
Eleyinju ogunna
Olukoso lalu
A ri igba ota, según
Eyi ti o fi alapa segun ota re
Kabiyesi o

Alaafin, King of Oyo who growls as a leopard and makes people run far away
He who’s eyes shines as lighted fire
Olukoso, the famos in the city
He who uses hundreds of cartridges to scare his enemies
He who used pieces of broken wall parts to defeat his enemies
We honour you
Ase.
