Focusing on Complete Sacrificial Ceremonies: A Review 15 décembre 2013
Par David Brown - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
The list of works in English on "Santeria" (alt. Lukumi Religion) has become extensive. Newcomers value careful introductions, yet the majority of works published have given us introductions. The historiography is reasonably rich and the offerings reasonably accessible via Amazon and libraries. The writer has provided a number of clearly written, though controversial, prior books on Santeria. Arguably, now, priests and lay-people hunger for depth, nuance, and development of theme. Hence, "Sacrificial Ceremonies" and "A Complete Guide to the Rituals and Practices" in the title and subtitle quickly drew my attention.

Systematic treatments of this particular subject are few; what exists is dispersed among numerous hard-to-find "treatises" of the Lukumi religion, most of which are in difficult Cuban Spanish, which few can read at all; moreover these authors intentionally withhold crucial information to guard their knowledge base and exclude others.

In the book at hand, the terms "ceremonies," "rituals," and "practices" denote the actual doing of sacrifices, plural. And "complete," if it were possible at all to provide an exhaustive treatment of the religion's vast sacrificial technologies, raises the expectation, at minimum, of thoroughness. The author devotes twenty four pages of this 242 page book to sacrificial ceremonies/rituals/practices, following a brief discussion of sacrificial "preparations" (Chapters Six and Seven) Chapters One and Two discuss cosmology and divination; Chapters Three and Four deal with Santeria's history and "globalization"; Chapter Five discusses the famous Santeria (Lukumi) animal sacrifice Supreme Court triumph of 1993. And the final Chapter Eight provides mythological stories (Pataki) on the theme of sacrifice. The two chapters devoted to practice are admirably detailed and systematic, though narrowly confined to a single paradigm.

It might be inappropriate to critique a work for what it does not do, rather than praise it for what it does. However, a number of other authors have already outlined the same basic paradigm in Spanish and English (e.g., M. Ramos and J. Mason). A cursory review of the more esoteric treatises (not to mention, the ceremonies themselves, in which we all participate) and of which the writer is certainly aware) indicates that sacrifices significantly differ with respect to the kinds of offerings, deities, pertinent ecologies (e.g., inside, outside--road, forest, ocean, river, hill, tree, etc.) and other variables, though the basic paradigm is observed--though significant variation exists. For example, who should use only their hands and who a knife? What offerings require the hands or the knife? How do you give a conejo to one deity, an ayapa to another, an eure to yet another, an igbin, ekute, aya, or agbani, eran...? How many of each offering; what colors should they be; in what sequence should they come? When should the ceremonies take place in the sacred room and when in a joro-joro in the forest? How do the particulars of the preparation for these acts change depending upon the deity? When do a coconut, thunderstone, bamboo knife, a golpe, and/or a romper enter as additional sacrifical tools? What are the implications for the ritual sequence for dos patas or cuatro patas? If it is the latter, what is the crucial relationship of "sacrifice" to the "acheses" taken out, and how are the different classes of transformed offerings and bodily reconstructions (not to mention the prayers and dances that accompany them) presented and represented to the deities? If you're concentrating on the Dead or upon Yemaya, how should the particular litany of the names of the deceased differ in the moyuba prayer?

In short, a thorough guide (covers the principal bases) would help me and many others a lot. An exhaustive guide (perfectly "complete") would probably exhaust anyone's patience. For many reasons, I cannot claim to have mastered any of the questions just alluded to. As an author, I am guilty of writing long and wide-ranging books, which do not cover what some readers would like to have in their hand. Hence, I do not expect the author of "Sacrificial Ceremonies" to do it all. However, someone with his experience in writing for lay and priestly constituencies, as well as whose author's persona has always attempted to project great expertise, should attempt to focus more intensively on the topic at hand. It appears that the knife is not only too short, but also requires significant sharpening.

This book is full of flawed history and is not a complete guide to the rituals and practices 23 mars 2014
Par Temujin Ekunfeo - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
As I read "Sacrificial Ceremonies of Santeria A complete Guide to the Rituals and Practices," a lot of the information a struck me as being of dubious origin and therefore questionable accuracy. Such as the story of how the Atlantic slave trade began which tells of Oyo priest exchanging the symbols of their Orisa the dilogun (cowry shells) for gold and the conversation between Yemonja and Oshun about going to Cuba because there people were being stolen and taken there. Or this statement made on page 77 "Harold Courlander an influential African American Scholar traveled to Cuba in 1941." The fact of the matter is Harold Courlander's parents were both of European Jewish origin.

I am compelled to say that the author of "Sacrificial Ceremonies of Santeria A complete Guide to the Rituals and Practices," was overly ambitious and not well prepared to undertake this project. The author wrote in the acknowledgements, "I felt severely under-qualified to complete the book. " I agree with his self-assessment, as there are serious hole in his historical and ritual research.
When I read the Bibliography and I saw "Ekunfeo, Obalorun Temujin "When was Aborisha, Orisha Worship, First Practiced by African Americans in the United States?"
I wondered why the names of Christopher Oliana, Obailumi Ala Aganju (who became my teacher in 1969 and made me a priest in 1978) and Walter Eugene King, Oba Efuntola Oseijeman Adelabu Adefunmi I Olo Obatala (whom I came to know in 1969 and who founded Oyotunji Village in Sheldon SC.) had been omitted from the history of the religion in the US. I also wondered why, if there were "25 Santeros and Babalawo in the NYC area in 1955," the first four "Americans" to become Orisa priests Christopher Oliana, and Walter Eugene King, Asuncion "Sunta" Serrano Mercedes Noble all HAD to go to Cuba to become Orisa priests; Asuncion "Sunta" Serrano in 1958 and Christopher Oliana and Walter Eugene King 1959 and Mercedes Noble, Oban Yoko go Cuba in1962. I knew "Sunta" but not her history 1999.
With community 25 priests in the NYC area in 1955" why was the first Orisa priesthood initiation in the US not done there until 1963 when Lenore Dome made Marjorie Baynes Quinones Sango Gunmi an Orisa priest.

Juan Matienzo and Bishop Pedro Augustin Morell de Santa Cruz are written as though they had worked together in Cuba. Matienzo worked in Peru in the 1500s; Bishop Pedro Augustin Morell de Santa worked in Cuba in the 1500.

IThe sacrifice section is full of flawed and or missing information. In short this is not a complete guide to the rituals and practices and of no use to any Olorisa wishing to learn and it is of no use to any Olorisa wishing to learn.

Sincerely Temujin Ekunfeo, Obalorun Ala Aganju initiated to the priesthood of the Orisa Aganju in 1978.

Deeply Insightful 13 septembre 2012
Par Vonnie Faroqui - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Skilled as an orator, writer and priest, Ócha'ni Lele brings a deep love and understanding for Santeria to his readers. The excellent writing and composition style of Sacrificial Ceremonies of Santeria lends itself to an ease of understanding and imparts a depth of knowledge that is invaluable to those who are seeking growth in the religion. The sacred stories come alive, while annotations broaden without becoming dry and academic in tone. With so many seekers and so few available teachers, Sacrificial Ceremonies of Santeria is by far the most in-depth and skilled presentation of the sacred rituals and practices available. Anyone interested in the religious history and traditions purely from an academic standpoint will be pleased at the level of attention given to cross referencing information with the diloggun, patakis, and other scholastic records.
As the daughter of a fundamentalist minister, I was vastly intrigued and greatly impressed by the incredible dedication author Ocha'ni Lele gave in presenting the sacred rituals in Sacrificial Ceremonies of Santeria. I found this book to be deeply enriching. As one who was raised in a religion which no longer participates in ritual blood sacrifices, outside of symbolic practices, I found it enlightening to be presented with a living example of ancient sacrificial rites. In learning about the sacred rituals and practices of Santeria, I found a new level of understanding for the value and significance of blood ritual. I think this book would serve serious students of Christianity well in understanding the impact ritual sacrifice and the cessation of such practices has had on the development of their own religion and culture. I am sure each reader will be impacted differently, based on their personal level of understanding and spiritual inclinations; however, there is great room for growth and healthy discussion to be enjoyed through broadening one's perspective.
Alive with rich imagery, sacred storytelling, and detailed analysis, there is no better transmittal or loving record of this vital information available to friends and family of the Orishas, than that which is being transmitted through their vessel, Ócha'ni Lele, in Sacrificial Ceremonies of Santeria: A Complete Guide to the Rituals and Practices.

Insightful, honest 23 septembre 2012
Par Anna Finale - Publié sur

This book provides true insight into a religion that has been kept secret for many years. It eloquently, honestly and lovingly explains the sacrifices and ceremonies that form the foundation of Yoruba belief systems. In doing so, light is shed on a beautiful, real religion that serves to further the human race; a religion that has been grossly misunderstood due mainly to the fact that the public at large was not privy to its foundations and belief systems.

I highly recommend this book, not only to those that know little of Yoruba beliefs, but also to practioners. Education is power!

Thank you, Ochani Lele!!

Perfection ... 28 avril 2013

Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
All of Ocha Ni lele's books, have help illuminate my path, as a Priest of the Religion ... His books take us, to the core, of our oral tradition and make it understandable ... I often wonder about why rituals, ceremonies etc are done a certain way ... Elders, don't always have the answers, but his books do ... Something as simple as what the meaning of our singing while pouring honey over the Orisha's and what the actually words mean ... To providing extensive detailed history on the Diaspora are invaluable resources ... I highly recommend all his tomes ...
