Osa Otura, a stanza of Ifa

Ọsá Otura says, “What is Truth?” I say “What is Truth?”

 

Ọrunmila says, “Truth is the Lord of Heaven guiding the earth.” Ọrunmila says, “Truth is the Unseen One guiding the Earth. The wisdom of Olódumare, he is using.”

 

Ọsa Otura says, “What is Truth?” I say “What is Truth?”

 

Ọrunmila says, “Truth is the character (ìwà) of Olódumare. Truth is the word that cannot fall. Ifá is Truth. Truth is the word that cannot spoil. Might surpassing all.

 

“Blessing everlasting” was the one who cast Ifa for Earth. They said they should come and speak the truth. “’Speak the truth, tell the facts; Speak the truth, tell the facts.” Those who speak the truth are those whom the orishas will help.”
