As a new student of Ifa/Yoruba, i found that this book gave me a clear image of the path of initiation and was instrumental in me taking the path myself. It is clearly a 21st century outlook on one of the oldest traditions.

I always enjoy books by Baba Ifa Karade because they are honest, clear, & concise, yet thorough. In this book he manages to share his experiences of becoming initiated into the Obatala priesthood and attaining Babalawo status, provide verses from the odu, review the importance of naming, and call Africans in the Diaspora back to their heritage - all in less than 150 pages. For novices interested in the journey one must take to initiation, this work is excellent. Highly recommended!

I think this book was never marketed for exactly what it was - a look at a Orisa initiate prior and during the initiation process and what he did and does to prepare and make the most of that experience. I think this is a great book for any Iyawo and would recommend that anyone that is about to get initiated to read it - even if they are practicing some other Traditional African Spirituality/Religion.

Format: Paperback
Inspirational book especially for the newly initiated young Santo Iyawos as well as the Santero/as menores. This is the personal story of Baba Ifa Karade. The book is also good for those interested in a personal account of a priest's first step in an Ancient religion, as well it is interesting for African Americans who are searching for a spiritual belief system from the African continent. It is a thin book that will take a day or two to read, but informative, truthful, soulful and entertaining.
