    Aboru, Aboye Baba:

    Are you familiar with any case in which the is ‘born initiated into IFA by GOD???’ And, if so, what is the process then — regular study, practice, apprenticeship, and work with the community?

    Modupe and Odabo!

      No. Remember, communal transference of ase via initiation followed by disciplined study of ese ifa, and related sciences makes a Babalawo. A person may be born with being a Babalawo the purpose of their incarnation, but all rituals and training must be adhered to.

      If your life depended on a surgical procedure, would you have the educated, trained, and practiced surgeon performed the surgery or the person or the person who was borne to be a surgeon, yet lacked the proper education, training, and practice?
