This was Ifa's message for Orunmila
When going to attain the four daughters of Oosa...
- Holy Odu IworiOtura
In this Odu, Ifa explains how Orunmila was able to attain the four daughters of Oosanla whose names are: Oni, Ola, Otunla and Ireni. Orunmila then gave Oni (today) to Obatala, he took Ola (the next day) for himself, he gave Otunla (the day after) to Ogun, and he gave Ireni to Sango. After this, the remaining Irunmole from the 801 then chose one of the four days as the day that they would be propitiated. The day that each Irunmole chose would be known as the day of that Irunmole. For example, Ose Oosa (Obatala’s day) was also adopted by Ogiyan, Iko and Losootoro. Ose Ifa (Orunmila’s day) was also adopted by Osun, Osanyin, Obaluaye among others. Ose Ogun (Ogun’s day) was adopted by Ija, Osoosi, Orisa-Oko and Erinle among others. Ose Jakuta (Sango’s day) was adopted by Alafere and Oramfe. There is no day that Ori and Esu Odara cannot be propitiated. Any day chosen for the two Irunmole is appropriate for them, although typically, Esu Odara is propitiated along with Orunmila.
