Here is a link to a large English Image of the Tree of Creation of the Yoruba Genesis
Explanations of the Tree of Creation of the Yoruba Genesis from OLÓDÙMARÈ
This Sacred Esoteric Yoruba Teaching was given by Baba ODÙDÚWÀ through his Elegun (Medium) on January 2010.
An Egun (spirit guide) that is associated with BABA ODÙDÚWÀ also gave some teaching on this.
This is a work in progress, in relation to the description of the image, Baba Odùdúwà an his emissaries haven't finish the whole description. Since there are a lot of people asking about it, I will give some of the description based on what Baba Odùdúwà and Egun Tata G:. has given us so far.
The Yoruba term that they gave us for this is:
ÒNÀ ÌYÁ ILÉ
That means the Path of the Mother Home, signifying the path that the creation took out of the Universal Neutral Energy – which we know with the code name OLÓDÙMARÈ.
Egun Tata G. gave this explanation
CREATION of the FIRST WORLD
OLÓDÙMARÈ – is the Universal Neutral Energy, from this Three Great Beings emanated, those were OLÓFIN, OLÓFIN ÒRUN and OLÓKUN. In the beginning only existed a kind of subtle "Ether", like a "Gas", a Neutral type of Energy that was owner of the Divine Universal Principles, from that Energy, the first Power that emanated out of this Neutral Energy was OLÓFIN. OLÓFIN is the First Conscious -Thoughtful Energy, in this process of emanation and manifestation of OLÓFIN, from the unconscious aspect of the Universal Divine Energy that we know as OLÓDÙMARÈ to the Conscious aspect that we know as OLÓFIN, with him he drag energy that also became a conscious divine being. When OLÓFIN emanated and detached (so to speak) another Great Divine Beings was generated out of this energy, he is the Great OLOKUN. This is the reason that Olókun is also so important, an the reason why Olókun is not an IRÚNMÒLE ORUN, ÒRÌSÀ or Egun (spirit). Olókun is like another GOD, closely to the level of OLÓFIN.
OLÓFIN due to so much thinking, pondering and meditation, and because he was felling so lonely in the immensity of the emptiness of the "Void", OLÓFIN decided to create or emanated another creation, that is called OLÓFIN ÒRUN, that is the UNIVERSE. With OLÓFIN ÒRUN, were created the Galaxies, the Stars, the planets, and within them a Planet Earth.
Note: Also many other Earths in the universe were created, following the know principle of "As abode so bellow, as here so there") , the same process of creation replicate (or duplicates) the pattern of this creation with some peculiarities, there big stars, small ones, red stars, blue stars, small planets, big planets, some planets with a certain type of gas combinations an another one with a different one, so creation in each place due to many factor is very peculiar to that place in the universe.
Baba ODÙDÚWÀ says that the deeper meaning of OLÓFIN is the Owner of the Secrets. He says that is also related to the word Aláàfin means the inheritor of the Secrets.
From OLÓFIN ÒRUN came OLORUN, that is the one who oversees and watch the Universe, he looks at the Stars.
Also from OLÓFIN ÒRUN, came OLÓFIN ÈLÀ, from ÈLÀ this came the inspiration and the Wisdom of IFA, that manifest through the being of Òrúnmìlà. From Òrúnmìlà, we have his divine given wife called ODÚ, that came the Igbá Odú.
Note: In the IFA tradition and lineage of Baba Odùdúwà, that he received directly from Baba Òrúnmìlà they give the Igbá Òrúnmìlà, Igbá Odú, and Igbá OLÓFIN.
Also from OLÓFIN ÈLÀ came other manifestations, one very famous one is Jesus (Yeshua) known in Baba Odùdúwà´s Esoteric Yoruba tradition as OLÓFIN ÁLÁ, the smallest son of OLÓFIN. Baba Odùdúwà reveals that he in his lost years, he traveled to the middle east, India, Tibet, Egypt, and he also went to the Yoruba land, he was marked as an son of Mérìndínlógún (16 Cowries), revealing that he is a son of OLÓFIN. Jesus or Yeshua was consecrated to IFA in Yoruba land, and he also received other initiations.
From OLÓFIN ÒRUN also came ORÍ, the ruler of Consciousness. Also from OLÓFIN ÒRUN came OSUN, the divine messenger of all that the humans do on Earth, and he gives direct reports of all we do (good or bad) to OLÓFIN.
OLÓFIN decides to create and give life to a special Being, this being is called now as OLÓSÍ (owner of the Left side, or the other side, the side of darkness, evil path), and he was created within this Solar System. OLÓSÍ was created immortal, powerful, beautiful, Omnipotent and perfect. OLÓSÍ was send to Earth, at that time the Earth was in Darkness, that was the Time of Great Darkness, there was a great ocean all over the planet, the planet was covered by dark clouds, and there were submarine volcanoes active, some were emerging to the surface of the waters, with lava flowing and becoming solid, forming new earth surface. The volcanic ash clouds spreading all over, the planet atmosphere was dark. OLÓSÍ started to deviate, to do crazy things, to pervert, he stars to create Chaos, to created deformed creations, kind of demonic like beings, he start to create havoc through Electrical Storms, Thunder and lighting.
OLÓFIN was fed up and lost his patience, and he tries to destroy OLÓSÍ through hitting him with electrical thunders over him, but he forgot he created OLÓSÍ as an immortal creature, so he couldn't destroy him. OLÓFIN decides to control OLÓSÍ and he puts him in the underworld in the center of the planet. OLÓFIN made a pact with OLÓSÍ to keep away from Earth affairs and its creatures. Only every 12,000 years he can come out, that close to a half of the Zodiacal Great Year or Platonic Year of 25,920 earth years. OLÓFIN put some magical seals to keep OLÓSÍ away and controlled.
OLÓFIN learns from his mistake, and decides to make another creation, he decides its time to give Life to Earth, and make living creatures, but mortal ones. OLÓFIN creates the first mortal human being, that was OBÀTÁLÁ.
Note: Until this part the story will continue later with the Teaching of Baba Odùdúwà on this subject.
OLÓFIN creates the IRÚNMÒLE ÒRUN in the Universe, these IRÚNMÒLE ÒRUN are Universal Conscious Energies. Baba Odùdúwà says that what the Hebrew Torah and the Bible refer to as Angels and Archangels are the IRÚNMÒLE ÒRUN, these are divine creations. IKÚ – is one of this IRÚNMÒLE ÒRUN, or he is called the Angel of Death (Mal'akh haMavet in hebrew) in the westerns esoteric tradition. He doesn't have any Mercy, he comes to destroy life, to take away life from this Earth, and from any other place in the universe. Some of the IRÚNMÒLE ÒRUN creates, other destroys, and other sustains the creation. The IRÚNMÒLE ÒRUN is something that only Baba Odùdúwà and his emissaries have talk as far as I know.
The IRÚNMÒLE ÒRUN is no the same as IRÚNMÒLE, the IRÚNMÒLE ÒRUN are higher Universal Powers or Energies in the Universe.
Baba Odùdúwà says that Olókun controls the deepness of the space of the universe, the darkness of space, that why these are part of his colors, black.
From Olokún, two aspects manifested,
A) ÌRÀWÒ OLÓKUN (o ÌRÀWÒLÓKUN)
B) OLÓKUN AYÉ
ÌRÀWÒ OLÓKUN (o ÌRÀWÒLÓKUN), has two manifestations, Baba Odùdúwà says that there are ÌRÀWÒ (Star and planets) govern by the energy of a certain ORISHA, or IRÚNMÒLE. Olókun rules the Planet Neptune, who is called ÌRÀWÒ OLÓKUN (o ÌRÀWÒLÓKUN).
OLÓKUN AYÉ is the Olókun the manifest in this World; it has Seven Manifestations, that's why in the Ifá tradition of Baba Odùdúwà's Lineage they have Seven Igbá Awo Olókun, one for each of these seven aspects of Olókun. We have to ask Baba more on this subject. OLÓKUN AYÉ controls the Oceans in this planet. Connected with Olókun Ayé and with ÌRÀWÒLÓKUN is OLÓSÀ, who is the Apètèbí (servant) of Olókun Ayé. Baba Odùdúwà says that OLÓKUN is a very Severe Divine Being, that's why his Rituals have to be done with a lot of deep respect, that's why in his rituals, if Olókun gets offended or angry he can take away a life of someone.
From OLÓFIN came OLÓFIN AYÉ, which manifested in this World as BABA ODÙDÚWÀ, who was the PATRIARCH and BABA (Father) of the Yoruba. ODÙDÚWÀ was a son of Mérìndínlógún (16 Cowries) in the Oracle Ceremony, revealing that he was a direct son of OLÓFIN. ODÙDÚWÀ and the 16 Wise Kings who came from the east founded the Yoruba culture; they established 16 kingdoms, one for each of the kings, who Baba ODÙDÚWÀ says that were 16 OBÀTÁLÁ. Baba ODÙDÚWÀ says that the true period of time that that happened was 20,000 years ago, when also ancient Egyptian civilization was beginning. BABA ODÙDÚWÀ title as OLÓFIN AYÉ, means the Owner of the Secrets of this World.
Thank you... that makes a lot of previously misunderstood and usually mysterious things more accurately and exceedingly unclear.
One thread on this could just spark up a good debate - but you are pushing your luck with a second one
Part 2 Continues Explanations of the Yoruba Genesis from OLÓDÙMARÈ
IRÚNMÒLE and ÒRÌSÀ
IRÚNMÒLE is the Energy (or Archetypical Essence) that gives rise to the ÒRÌSÀ in this Solar System, and in other Star systems in the Universe. The IRÚNMÒLE makes that the rise of the ÒRÌSÀ repeats itself in all parts of the Universe, manifesting the same type of ÒRÌSÀ in different parts of the universe. Example, The IRÚNMÒLE OBÀTÁLÁ gives rise to the ÒRÌSÀ OBÀTÁLÁ in this Solar System, the same can happen in the nearest Star or Solar system close to this one we live line and in all Star Systems. That's why the ÒRÌSÀ phenomena can happen all over the Universe, with certain peculiarities for all the different places in the Universe. The same happens with the other 401 IRÚNMÒLE that becomes the 401 ÒRÌSÀ.
There are two divisions in the 401 IRÚNMÒLE:
1) IGBÁ IRÚNMÒLE OYÙKÒTÚN
200 IRÚNMÒLE of the Right, the 200 SEVERE and WRATHFUL IRÚNMÒLE
They manifest the 200 Severe and Warrior type of ÒRÌSÀ in all Solar Systems in the Universe, the ÒRÌSÀ FUNFUN (White ÒRÌSÀ).
Examples: Èsú, Ògún, Òsóòsì
2) IGBÁ IRÚNMÒLE OJÙKÒSÌN
200 IRÚNMÒLE of the Left, the 200 PEACEUL and WISE IRÚNMÒLE
They manifest the 200 Peaceful and Wise type ÒRÌSÀ in all Solar Systems in the Universe, the ÒRÌSÀ PUPA (Red ÒRÌSÀ)
Examples: Obàtálá, Òsányìn
Also Baba Odùdúwà said there are 200 other IRÚNMÒLE that are kind of Neutral Power, for a total of 601 IRÚNMÒLE. That is something he hasn't talk to much about it.
There is what is called in Baba Odùdúwà's teaching as OKÀN IRÚNMÒLE, that gives rise to the OKÀN ÒRÌSÀ, in his teaching this is the position of IRÚNMÒLE OSUN, that gives rise to the ÒRÌSÀ OSUN in the Universe.
The Original OSUN on Earth was OSUN KOLE, the one who saved the Humanity, she was an Ìyáàmi Àjé, a Great and Powerful Witch, who had the true magical power to transform into any animal or bird she wanted to. This is something that Baba Odùdúwà said that only OSUN had that type of knowledge and power. She used to transform into a Vulture. Baba Odùdúwà says she was the last one to become an ÒRÌSÀ, she became the 401 ÒRÌSÀ.
He says that Olófin decree to have only 400 ÒRÌSÀ, Baba Odùdúwà explained how the human became an ÒRÌSÀ, but that's part of another related teaching that will cover later. He says that the first human to become an ÒRÌSÀ 20,000 years ago was Ògún,
ESHU (ÈSÚ) is the Divine Severe Enforcer of the Universal Law, in the Teaching of Baba Odùdúwà, he gave the real meaning of ÈSÚ as the "The Consciousness of the Spirit of Nature", he says that ÈSÚ has infinite manifestations or Paths (ÒNÀ ÈSÚ) in the Universe, he also said that there is a different ÈSÚ in every Star (Sun) of the Universe, he is the Divine Enforcer in that area. He said there is ÈSÚ INÁ, ÈSÚ ÌRÀWÒ, ÈSÚ OKUN, ÈSÚ ODÒ, ÈSÚ, etc…
The Living and the Death ones:
The ÈNÌÀ is the Living Human Being. When they die, there are the IKÚ (the Death Ones). In Baba Odùdúwà teaching he said the term EGÚNGÚN refers to the spirit of dead blood Ancestors, and the term of ÉGÚN is used to refer to a Spirit Guide, a spirit that has wisdom and can serve as a spiritual guide to a living human being.
The Living Human Being and the Dead (ÉGÚN, ÉGÚNGÚN) can become an ÒRÌSÀ. Only 401 Souls can become an ÒRÌSÀ in a long period of time, the last group of 401 ÒRÌSÀ was set around 20,000 years ago, as explained by Baba Odùdúwà. He said that in this new period of time another group of 401 Human Souls (Living or Dead) who had the real SODO ÒRÌSÀ Ceremony (the ÒRÌSÀ Crowning) and the Secret ÒRÌSÀ Symbol (or magical seal) scratch over the head area, that makes the person an ÒRÌSÀ, an Open Consciousness to the Divine. He said that in the ÒRÌSÀ Tradition there are 401 Magical Sigils o Symbols, plus 200 more, a total of 601. Baba Odùdúwà said that all the 401 ÒRÌSÀ will be known now in his Lineage, he will reestablish there secrets again for this new times. He said he will teach the long Praise to the 401 ÒRÌSÀ.
He has given the secret ÒRÌSÀ Sigil or symbol for the SODO ÒRÌSÀ Ceremonies that we have done in ÈGBÈ ÓDÙN OLÓFIN. We have done 18 SODO ÒRÌSÀ fallowing Baba Odùdúwà's instruction on how to perform the Ceremony and with the Scratched Symbol of the ÒRÌSÀ on the head of the new Iyawo.
There are many teachings that Baba Odùdúwà has given, the true stories he knows of each of the 401 ÒRÌSÀ, the secrets of each of them and there ceremonies, the secrets of the herbs for healing all kinds of sickness, the secrets of the Oracle of 16 Cowries and there ODU, the sacred stories and teachings for each of the 256 Odú of the ÒRÌSÀ Tradition (Òòsà Tradition, the Legacy of Baba Odùdúwà)
