Invader Of The World .. Birth Of Thunder
Argayu appeared in the palace of Yemaya , She had become pleasantly surprised since she had not expected his arrival. To add to her surprise she saw a child in his arms , she became petrified with shock; but yet filled with happiness and calmness. Yemaya saw the beauty in this child her son carried on his arms. And so, Argayu placed him in his mothers arms and she could feel the same qualities vibrate from this young child as if they where from her husband Obatala. The words appeared in Yemaya’s head and she answered “Yes, I hear you “! The child was immensely powerful . Only his life would demonstrate all his powers. Yemaya knew this was her favorite child and whoever dared to harm him they would her to answer to . Yemaya understood this Omoquenquere (son) had come to bring justice, and that he would be problematic as well and never lack an enemy. Shango, as his adoptive mother , was ONY ONY ( absolute royalty) He would speak through his eyes and his words would resound the lands, something that would scare all those in the kingdom. Shango’s Birth brought thunder into the kingdom, He also brought prophecy and wars. And his birth also brought the ADE DE KUN (guardian of the crown) that all olosha wear upon their heads . Shango is the greatest warrior ever known on earth . Suddenly,the horror and pain that accompanied the feeling of the loss of Orula washed over Yemaya once more. She remembered the words of her husband Obatala that he would kill any male child she had. Afraid for Shango’s life she begged Laroye to bring her eldest daughter DADA immediately to the palace. Dada heard the urgency in Laroye’s voice and dressed and ran to the palace of her mother surprised by what she saw waiting on her in Yemaya’s arms a child, but not a child- a male child. In haste Yemaya summoned the words she had to say quickly before Obatala grew suspicious of the coming an goings of all the children in the palace , she found the words to say to Dada. “Dada my daughter you are my eldest daughter and I know you will be able to under take this mission . I have chosen you , because I know you will be able to keep my secret!.” Yemaya continued as she placed Shango in Dada’s arms, ” This child you hold is the son of Olodumare, sent to secure justice and make sure we follow his laws, since your father Obatala, is ill and can not continue ruling”. The moment Shango reached her arms Dada became amazed lifted her head to the heavens and proclaimed : KOWO CABIO SILE SHANGO !! ELECUN EYIOKO OSI OSAIN (YOU ARE THE GREATEST SHANGO WHEN YOU SPEAK THE WORLD WILL LISTEN AND OBEY.) Yemaya tells her daughter that she shall be known as the child’s mother and she will come visit everyday and breast feed the child. They would do this as two mothers , then when the time was right they would introduce the child to the kingdom as Olodumare’s child sent to enforce Olodumare’s justice upon the world. Dada could not help but see the handsome beauty this child possessed she had not seen such beauty since Oshun was born in the palace. Upon arriving in her home Dada noticed the child had a Axe and she heard the words form in her head explaining, ” Because of the many challenges he would face throughout his life, some good and some bad, there would be many wars , and he would bring much happiness, and dispense the justice for all “. That day Dada had not known what prophecy this child was to bring to the world .. but he grew each day. And each day he became more and more large and more handsome with each Odun (year) that passed . But yet , things where about to change in the kingdom of Obatala and Yemaya some good and some bad. More so in the moment that HATE was born on earth for the first time , through Shango. **this also explains why the children of Shango should receive DADA sometime in their life for Dada will calm his anxieties to go to war quickly. Shango is the King of dance in the Lucumi traditions , He is the owner of the bata drums ( sacred drums ) as I will explain later on.
