PAIRING CORPUSES OF IFA TOGETHER AND THEIR MEANINGS BY OLALEKAN ODUNTAN

These are the three Corpuses of Ifa which are left to be treated and paired with one of the two lines of Eji Ogbe and they are namely Irete, Ose and Ofun. But the moment they are paired with Ogbe, they are being referred to as Ogbe Irete, Ogbe Ose and Ogbe Ofun. It should be noted at this juncture that Ogbe that is the dominant Corpus in this lesson is the one pairing with other Corpuses for now. 

Next time, the dominant Corpus can be from any of other remaining fifteen Corpuses that we have not touched pairing with each other and having different meanings and interpretations. The profound knowledge is what an Ifa priest must acquaint himself with and know by heart before he can be successful in divining for people about the past, the present and the future. 

Any Ifa priest that does not know the meanings, applications and interpretations of so many different Corpuses of Ifa is not yet ready for the business of divination because it is like a farmer going to work on his farm without his necessary tools.
