Traditional Yorùbá culture is founded on the idea that everything in Nature has Orí or consciousness. 
This belief leads to the idea it is possible to communicate with Forces in Nature called Òrisà.
One form of communication is through altered states of consciousness commonly refered to as possession.
The other is to communicate with Nature through the use of divination.
In traditional Yorùbá culture divination is the manipulation of either seeds or shells to create numberical patterns these patterns refer to specific verses of oral scripture.
These verses are a way of preserving the wisdom of the ancestors.
Traditional Yorùbá culture has four main systems of divination that are interrelated and inter connected.
The first is obi obata, which essentially is used to give yes no answers to direct questions.
The second system is bàsed on the use of sixteen principles that traditional Yorùbá culture considers the foundation of Creation.
This system is called Mérìndínlógún from the elision mérìn meaning four, dín meaning subtract from, and lógún meaning twenty.
In the Yorùbá system of counting Mérìndínlógún is the word for sixteen.

  •     This book is just right for people studying the African religion of Ifa as it is practiced in Nigeria AND who are currently working with elders to deepen their knowledge. This is not a book you can pick up and will teach you merindilogun, but it is not designed for that purpose. If a person is working in dedicated study with an elder this book with be a rich and concise supplement to your studies.
  •     Siempre mas de lo mismo del autor, le recomiendo al autor que cuando aprenda a escribir un ebook, lo publique, de lo contrario que no escriba tanta porquería. Pâra nada lo recomiendo.
  •     The book was not what I expected.Plus too expensive.
  •     I found this dilligun book not helpful -- except in some areas -- it was okay -- but, could have been more indepth.
  •     Very good information and logically placed within the book. I enjoy reading items from this author.
  •     NOT SO GREAT IN SHOWING HOW TO CAST, MEANING OF THE NUMBERS, AND TOO MUCH PROVERBS OR POEMS THAT ARE REAL HARD TO UNDERSTAND WHAT THE BOOK IS SAYING, I DID NOT LIKE IT THAT MUCH
