Whether it is a case of  meanings being lost in translation or not it is in my opinion an incorrect notion that assumes Ori$a/Orixas to lesser gods; there is no other God besides Olodumare 'The Infinite Ruler of the Heavens'. This to me would suggest that Ori$as are not lesser gods but divine-ministers(divinities and deities) of God; but are to be nevertheless celebrated devoutly.
The Orisa/Orixa are to be celebrated and revered much more than their images are to be idolized.

I'd love to learn Yoruba and many more.
Often we find our brothers learning European culture compared to African values. Angry Really sad!
They say you'll never get anywhere in life. Some may find it "sensible"...therefore selling their souls for worldly riches.

Any suggestion on where/how I could start?  Two Thumbs

The above quoted as a white/eurocentric concept! Why use it? Huh Huh Huh I dont mean to be in your face or anything, but I dont get it. I await your blessed reasoning.
