    I am Babalawo Afonja Obafemi. Yoruba is a religion as well as a philosophy of life. I am forever grateful as a black in America to find Yoruba. Before being initiated I was a pimp, living the life according to the law of the streets. Do or die. I am glad to see these types of communications that deals with the issues that we are faced with then and now. I am from Chicago, born in Alabama and migrated to Chicagonin 1959 at 8 years old. At 8 years old, I found myself in the mist of one today's notorious figure. Then he was 10 and I was 8 new and being jacked for my lunch money. My first thought was I had to fight, I was never afraid of a honest and fair fight. Ever since then the fight has been on. Today I am in another fight, the fight to stop the violent mentality of our world. I am a priest of humanity. Our children are dying, in alarming rates, it has been nationally reported and something has to be done. I am reaching out to all those who are willing to listen. Today, it the begining of the beginning, I am looking to call together all those Yoruba or anyone that wants this violence to stop. We as Yoruba was told in the reading for the year to go amongst the people to bring people into the fold. I have a Shango head, I am compelled through IFA to fight the good fight. I want to see 10 thousand Yoruba men and women in chicago Washington park, who are ready to come together in sharing this way of life with our youth. Getting together and presenting what life is suppose to be about, no malice and being of good character. If you are interested please respond to this post with suggestions. Or yes, when and where. There is success when people are willing to go through any length in the name of IFA.

    I am planning event in 90 days. Looking to get two thousand men and women of all denominations. Looking to build a Yoruba institute. Need to start spreading the philosophy of Yoruba, no malice and good character.

    ogbo ato. Sounds good. What method will you employ in terms of spreading the philosophy. I imagine philosophy being synonyms with culture?
