Caribbean: Orisa Sermon for the Ceremonial Opening of the Law Courts of Trinidad and Tobago
Totem in Orisha Shrine
Delivered by Iya Amoye
Spiritual head of Eniyan Wa & Vice- Chairman of The Council of Orisa Elders of Trinidad and Tobago September 16th 2004
Posted: December 08, 2004


Alafia (Peace and Good Health) to all my elders here present.

"Aiye l'oja Orun ile; nigba ti awon nti Orun bo w'aiye"

"The Earth is a marketplace - Heaven is our home; we are travelling from Heaven to Earth"

Yoruba tradition teaches that we exist in the realm of the spirit before coming to earth to have a human existence. Since we on this plane exist in the realm of the physical, we are therefore concerned with material issues. Nothing is wrong with this - we need food, air, clothing and shelter to survive. We need money. The difficulty arises when we become so attached to our possessions and pleasures that we forget that we are 'spirit' first and must one day return to our prior existence. Death therefore is not to be feared, but rather to be looked forward to as the Rite of Passage that will one day return us to our primal state of being.
