Every journey must begin with a first step. Step by step, Maugé successfully takes you through the Yoruba metaphysical and spiritual journey from heaven to earth and return. He skillfully blends the knowledge and practices of the old world with that of the New World, offering explanations that few have offered before. His chapter on Divination can be considered a textbook of classical knowledge by itself.
Ancestor reverence is explained in such a way that the reader will want to communicate with his or her ancestors right away.
The reader meets the Yoruba people and acknowledges their belief system which is based on the belief in a Supreme Being, Olodumare, the creator of heaven (Orun) and earth (Aye’); the belief in a multitude of deities (Orisa); the belief in ancestral spirits (Egungun) and the belief in living in harmony with nature.
His philosophical treatment of the manifold and often misunderstood subject of reincarnation explains the Yoruba perspective of nondestructible energy and life everlasting.
This book is a catechism for the West African belief system, more specifically for the Yoruba.
