i.              All Ifa/Orisa Temples around the world;

ii.             All Ile whose faith is based upon the doctrines of Ifa, Irunmole and Orisa;

The activities of The Council in Ekiti State in general and Ado Ekiti in particular, is strictly in the fulfillment of one of the Aims and Objectives of The International Council For Ifa Religion which is the discovery, development and promotion of Sacred Sites all over the world. The Annual Pilgrimage is therefore aimed at achieving the following objectives:

 

i.              To encourage Temple based worship that will enhance community building

ii.             To provide sanctuary for the homeless and encourage social interactions among members of the Temple

iii.           To bring hope for the hopeless and create environment for Temple based family living;

iv.           To build leadership among the rank and file in order to improve the lives of members in the Temples;

v.            To lay more emphasis on Temples as against individuals

vi.           To train all members on iwapelein order for them to be closer to Olodumare in all their thoughts, speeches and actions;

vii.          To ensure that all attending Temple members are role models who will become shining examples for the general public at large

viii.        To socialize the young ones on the proper ways of being socially acceptable members of their communities

 

 

The Odu revealed was OsaAlawo(OsaOtura). It came with the ire of longevity. For all those who are born by this Odu either during Ikosedaye or Itenifa, there is the need for you to feed your Ifa with two obi, two orogbo, oti, epo and food. There is also the need to gather people together to celebrate with you. You also need to resolve all outstanding issues that may lead to quarrel or misunderstanding, if any, and allow peace and harmony to reign. By so doing, plenty of ire leading to self-actualization, peace of mind, comfort and elevation are guaranteed.

 

There is the need for each member of the various Temples and other Ifa/Orisa based Houses of Worship to procure one dead ekuemo, brown rat. Cut a little hair from your head and fix it inside the rat. After doing this, throw the rat on the roof of your Temple or place of worship. If this is not possible, throw it on the roof of your house, place of work or on top of Esu. Doing this will guarantee longevity, peace and harmony.

 

All Temples do not need to offer all the prescribed ebo in this Odu. Please study the messages very carefully and offer the ebo that are directly relevant to the prevailing circumstances of your various Temples or Houses of Worship. The ebo can therefore be offered as a group, although it does not stop any individual who feels like offering the ebo on his own from doing so.

3.   Ifa says that at all times all members of various temples and Ifa/Orisa based establishments must distinguish themselves by speaking the truth at all time. On no condition must they be seen telling lies or trying to be dubious in any of their undertakings. Ifa says that truthfulness will make them to be closer to Olodumare. This is because it is the truth that Olodumare used in founding and administering the world. All Ifa/Orisa devotees must therefore be seen to be speaking the truth at all times. 

The ebo here is for all devotees to restrain from falsehood and uphold the truth at all times.

Ifa assures us that they will fail. This is because Orunmila himself will rise up in our support and ensure that these enemies are incapacitated. Ifa advises us to offer ebo with one bearded he-goat and money. We also need to feed Ifa with a mature pig. On this, Ifa says:
