Yemojá Cover 3


On the Orishas’ Roads and Pathways: Yemojá, Mother of the World
By Obá Miguel W. Ramos, Ilarí Obá, PhD.

The third book in the On the Orishas’ Roads and Pathways series is now available. This book focuses on Yemojá, the orisha that rules over the world’s waters since before the arrival of orishas and humans to Ayé. As one of the primordial deities of the Yoruba-Lukumí pantheon, Yemojá plays a vital position in the cosmos. She nurtures humanity and succors those who seek her help. In addition, Yemojá fights injustice and protects her devotees from the negative forces of the universe. As the epitome of womanhood, Yemojá is a staunch defender of women, fiercely confronting the abuse of mothers, women, and children. If the first two volumes in this series have received great praise from the Orisha community and academics alike, this next tome will live up to the reputation of the previous ones, surely becoming another valuable contribution to the literature on Orisha religion.
