Where we raise the kolanut made by MOTHER NATURE (they call God)
They raise the bread made by man.
Then we declare “He who brings kola brings life”
They too declare “This is the bread of life”.
We offer thanks,
They offer thanks.
We offer wine
They offer wine
Then we bless the congregation
They too bless their congregation
We call on our Ndichie and #worthyAncestors; Okeke,Okafọ, Okonkwo, Okorie, Igbokwe, Odenigbo and Igbokenyi, in “the communion of the living and the dead” to partake in our kola,
They too call their #Ndichie, and ancestors; St. Peter, St.Cyprian, St. Caro, St. Mark and Kizito to partake in their rite, in “the communion of the living and the dead”
Then we break and eat the consecrated kolanut,
They too break and eat their consecrated bread.
For this #task we chose our men folk
They too chose their men
A properly consecrated kolanut is the true #HolyCommunion
Yet many of you fail to see that
WE HAVE BEEN HERE BEFORE TIME BEGAN! and they can only walk in our shadows!
They took what is ours and made it look like theirs, yet in their envy they call us EVIL, we who welcomed them into our homes. They #enslaved the #minds of our children and set them against their fathers.
Now our children no longer know who they are; the firstborn creation of Chukwu Okike, a Noble race, Freemen, priests, priestesses, all have lost their place in the light.
We descendants of #Ndigboo-the ancients, we are the light of the world.
I bring good news from our ancestors
Ndi Igbo bu ndi gboo ( The ancient)
THERE IS NO RELIGION HIGHER THAN TRUTH
Very powerful. I love it!
Hello I’m an Igbo diasporan trying to learn about our ancient traditions. Odinala is a very interesting religion to me and a lot of its concepts speak to me. However I’m uncomfortable about how they carry out animal sacrifices. And yes I eat meat but when I watch videos of dibias carrying out the sacrifices it looks very unhygienic. There’s blood and feathers scattered about and all sorts of things. It’s off-putting to say the least. Are there dibias who have other methods of sacrifice? Is it possible to give the gods cleaner sacrifices? And keep the shrines more pleasant. I can’t imagine the gods are pleased with their shrines looking unkept. If odinani is something we want our fellow Igbos to have a better view of, those shrines and methods of performing sacrifices that look like that will do the opposite. For example, in Shintoism and Buddhism, they keep their shrines beautiful. Although I don’t think they perform animal sacrifices. Would be glad to hear your take on this.
I also concur with you, it has to be pleasant for it to be welcomed by the people. That is the main reason people disassociate themselves from it because of the way it looks. Let it be modernized then I bet you people will follow

Let it be modernized then I bet you people will follow. And if we can have service on Sunday at the village square where we teach the words of ancestors it will encourage the people more to have kin interest in our religion. So many people are suffering because of thier disconnection with thier ancestors
I have seen the light!
Good to know we have been here before time began. Anyi bidoro ke mgbe nyiwa chineke utoto
