What is Diloggun?
The Oracle of Dilóggun is a very old divination method used by the Yoruban people to communicate with the Orishas using the shells. These shells have one of their sides open, and after you threw their sides has a specific combination that has its own meaning. We can talk to all Orishas with this method, but usually the one speaking is Eleguá and for him we use 21 shells. These shells are called Merindilóggun, but only 16 are thrown, these are the ones called Dilóggun. The ones that we don’t use are the witnesses, we call these Adeles.
