Online Reference For Body, Mind & Spirit

Term: Orisha

DEFINITION:
Deities of the Yoruba pantheon that are worshiped to this day in the Santería /Ifá/Candomblé religions. The term comes from the union of “Ori,” the Yoruba word for head and consciousness, and “Sha” the Yoruba word for pick or picked, thus giving us “Picked Head” or more appropriately “Select or Selected Head or Consciousness." They personify different forces of nature and are thought to be different manifestations of the Creator/Creatix Spirit known as Olodumare.
