What you don't know about ESE IFA (IFA verses)


 Ifa literary corpus, called odu, consists of 256 parts subdivided into verses called ese, whose exact number is unknown as they are constantly increasing (there are around 800 ese per odu).




 Each of the 256 odu has its specific divination signature, which is determined by the babalawo using sacred palm-nuts and a divination chain. 



The ese, considered the most important part of Ifa divination, are chanted by the priests in poetic language.



 The ese reflect Yoruba history, language, beliefs, cosmovision and contemporary social issues. 




The knowledge of Ifa has been preserved within Yoruba communities and transmitted among Ifa priests.
