“What happens in our physical world first happens spiritually” — Ancient Yoruba Proverb
As New World Yoruba who practice an Earth based tradition that promotes the importance of balance, we encourage all worshippers of Egungun, aborisa, olorisa and omo eniyan to consult their shrines during these uncertain times for guidance and clarity.
We are doing our best to amend our 50th Year Anniversary Celebration festivals and special event plans where we can and proactively keep all of you informed during the process.
With a number of COVID-19 outbreaks on the rise, it's important to us that you know the Kingdom of Oyotunji Yoruba African Village is dedicated to supporting you spiritually, as we all closely monitor the situation.
Obaluaiye is the deity the Yoruba appease when sickness or ailments attack. As such whether you are an owner of an Obaluaiye shrine, eleke holder or neither, the Obaluaiye Shrine of Oyotunji Village has opened to supply the community with mail delivered 21-Grain individual burlap sacks blessed at the Oyotunji shrine of Obaluaiye. Each individual sack will include instructions for proper use and other practical applications of ritual that practitioners and their families can perform to assist with successfully petitioning the protection of Obaluaiye during this time.
An Asedi of $27 is requested per Burlap Sack. For those experiencing financial hardships during this time, scholarship is available.
We indeed are in unprecedented times. However, our hope and collective prayer is that our previous, current and future sacrifice be weighed favorably and that Orunmila stand guard to protect his children against COVID-19 and any other unforeseen sickness and ailments.
We encourage you to follow the preventative measures outlined by the Center for Disease Control and the World Health Organization to keep yourselves and families safe.
