Mojuba Means Thank You: A Praise Poem

Mojuba and Thanks by Lilith Dorsey.

 Devotees of the religion of Santeria (Lucumi) frequently recite a devoted list of prayers and thanks to their ancestors, spiritual teachers, and gods, or Orisha.

A Way of Life Santeria, more correctly known as Lucumi, is a religion, a tradition, a way of life. It has at it's core a belief in the existence of Ashe, a universal life force which permeates all things. There is the Ashe of divine fire, represented by the Orisha Chango. The sweet river is the Ashe of the love goddess Oshun flowing to her followers. Everything, absolutely everything, contains it's own sanctified energy and it is all connected. When Will It End? Those not in “Santo,” or pra … [Read more...]
