    This above image is of the Obosom (Ntoro/Neter, Orisha, Vodou, Deity) Heka. Heka is the Obosom Who operates through ritual prayer. Heka is also the name of the instrument used to "open the mouth" - again a referen
    ce to ritual prayer. Thus Set, is called Ur-Hekau.

    Set (Awuku in Akan, Eshu in Yoruba) is the Divine Messenger carrying our prayers to Nyamewaa-Nyame (Amenet-Amen, Mawu-Lisa - The Mother-Father Supreme Being) and carrying Their messages to us through the agency of the Abosom and Nsamanfo (Orisha and Egungun, Vodou and Kuvito, Ntorou/Ntorotu and Aakhu/Aakhutu - Deities and Ancestral Spirits). As the Divine Messenger, He effectively/properly uses ritual prayer, meaning He works in concert with the Obosom Heka.

    Heka does not mean 'magic'. Moreover, hekau are not what are typically referred to as 'mantras' or 'sacred sounds'. It must be understood that Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African) languages are tonal languages. The same word spoken with different tones yield different meanings. Shifting sound vibrations, reveals the difference in value/meaning.

    ALL WORDS IN AFURAKANI/AFURAITKAITNIT (AFRICAN) ANCESTRAL LANGUAGES HAVE MANTRIC VALUE.

    The Ancestral language in and of itself is sacred, because we learned our language directly from the Abosom (Ntorou/Ntorotu, Orisha, Vodou) - The Embodiments of Divine Order, from the beginning.

    To reduce the Obosom Heka and the Force wielded by Him and by Set (Ur Hekau) and Nebt Het (Urt Hekau - this title is also used by other Ntorotu/Netertu as well) to 'magic' and 'mantras' greatly diminishes the reality of the Obosom.

    For information on Set and Nebt Het (Awuku and Akua) as Ur Hekau and Urt Hekau see:
