Product Overview

'This book unravels the mystery and sacredness of Orisa Osun which had hitherto been of concern to so many Afro - Americans that had been {will be} initiated into a cultic tradition which they know little or next to nothing about! Therefore, with hundreds of powerful pictures,this book also highlights all the Sacred Places and Sacred People attached to the benevolent living river goddess. It is a scholarly treatise on one of the most significant traditional deity in South Western Nigeria, namely,Osun Osogbo who has won for herself the appellation 'A Lady of 10,000 names' - across the waters! The theme of the book portends a departure from all the available ones, which till date ,are mainly based and focused on fanciful myths of Osun and in most cases her annual festival at Osogbo.
