Product Description

ajo-inu-thumb-212x320.jpg

 

Ajo Inu; The Inner Journey Beyond the Quest is about taking a serious immersion into the esoteric nature of Danxome West African Vodun. After the Quest (Iwakiri) comes the Journey (ajo), and those that are listening to the call of their ancestors know that this obligation cannot be ignored. In this, one must be properly prepared for the action invoked by the ancestors that should follow the call. The information contained in Ajo Inu, fully equips the seeker to overstand the concepts behind the deeper levels of West African Vodun thought. In Ajo Inu, we delve into ancient sacred geometry from the Vodun perspective, the functonal relevance of the four sacred ages of the world, the esoteric question of objective reality, the great se (soul) and empirical approaches, removing the veil of spiritual delusion and weightiness, the descent of the Creator into humans and their spiritual duty based thereupon, Vodun metaphysics and how that applies to our lives, and much more. 142 pages. "6" x "9" inch pages.

  1. Very on point 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Oct 2014

    This book has left an indelible mark and sets the standard very high for metaphysical African teachings


  2. great book 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Sep 2014

    I came into this thinking it would be a great read. It is much beyond that. This is a whole school of African spirirual knowledge. It is quite more esoteric than I thought and the information is beyond useful. The delivery is awesome.


  3. Don't Let the Yoruba Name Fool You...Deeper than that 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Dec 2013

    This book has a Yoruba name but refreshingly speaks a lot on Vodun...more than I have seen other places. For that reason I would suggest the author change the name to reflect this as many like myself are truly searching out Vodun. People need to know that you are one of the few writers that can write on that tradition without compromising the integrity of it.

    All in all this books makes you not only think deeper but makes you go to work.Excellent book


  4. Profound!!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Nov 2013

    I have to keep rereading this book. The book seems to predict a lot of things. The parts about Vodun and the in-depth knowledge of how Vodun expresses certain worldviews is amazing


  5. Provides clarity yet depth 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Nov 2013

    This book is very deep but not too deep where it reads all academic. For this I give it many thumbs up. I pay particular attention to the concept of the sacred geometry from the African perspective. I have never seen such a thing before in relation to West African traditions. I have seen it with Kemet. The thing is that the author obvious knows his culture because it does not look like he copied Kemet at all on the sacred geometry subject.

    Fascinated!


  6. A very powerful treatise indeed 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Nov 2013

    This book left me wanting more but in a good way. The writer's understanding of esoteric spirituality is astounding. Bravo and highly recommended


  7. Astounding and different 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Apr 2013

    Without being new age this book takes ancient African tradition into the new age. powerful sections on number symbolism and various West African Vodun expressions truly took me on a journey within my mind. I am a psychologist who loves my African heritagr. I am currently contemplating ways to incorporate concepts in this book in assessment and teaching. Thanks for tgis work Ayinon Axosu Agbovi I.


  8. totally recommend 5 Star Review

     Culture and the Power Factor  

    Realizing quite rightly that an ethnic group or nation is ultimately judged not by might alone, but also by its culture, the Afrikan thinking of herself domestically as an American, has set out to be all things but Afrikan.  Identifying culturally and spiritually with the descendents of her Ancestors' oppressors they set out to try to absorb Western forms of ethos.  What happens more often than not is that this assimilating seeking Afrikan becomes absorbed instead of doing the absorbing.  What she has not understood is that culture cannot be put on from the outside. A certain artificial grace may be experienced by such means, but only at the cost of strangling the creative impulses of her being.  This is too big a price to pay, and the ethnic group that pays it will never be a truly influential and respected people. Cultural norms that are not naturally experienced from within cannot be personal realities in the truest sense.  What I mean is that here by within is a cultural ethos (or what Mama Marimba Ani refers to in her book Yurugu as asili) that is descended through bloodlines and reenacted at all levels of the descendents' lives.  The clothing of oneself in the cultural suit of another is a process of your unconscious being invaded by a reality not native to your own inner process.  Thus, the hopping around of the Afrikan to all of these traditions not native to his own inner process, a process descended from his own Ancestors, is truly an act of a subtle insanity.  Now I know that many of you may object to such language, but what other truth is there to it.  Whenever you do not accept self then there is a problem.  Call it insanity, instability, a complex, a syndrome, or what have you there is still a great problem.   Education is a part of culture, and culture is a toll for making sufferance natural and cooperative.  The extent that your culture can be successful depends on its authenticity and its ability to adapt.  Culture deals with a common Ancestry, a common heritage; a common destiny.  Culture also helps to deal with change in one's environment wherever the adherents to the culture may find themselves in time and space.  Culture makes life's events intelligible and significant.  Every event of some large significance takes place within the setting of some culture and derives its significance from that culture.  Religiously speaking, biblical, Quranic, etc. allegories and myths have their roots within the culture that first expressed them.  Alert!  These have no real roots within the Afrikan reality!


  9. Amazing depth 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Mar 2013

    This book has me intrigued from the beginning. It leads one down the path of a deep but comprehensive descent into true African cosmology. It is hard to dwcribe the uniqueness of this book as it does not only deal with the religious aspect of African tradition but also it covers psychology and political views and their relation. The esoteric Vodun nature of this book blew me away and I have not seen this anywhere else in any other Afriican spirituality book. Ase!


  10. A Reading of Love 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Mar 2013

    Ajo Inu: The Inner Journey Beyond the Quest does exactly what its title says. It takes one on the inner journey of self discovery. I like the fact that vodun is touched on and dealt with in a way that it is not comprimised or exploited. It gives us a true Vodun worldview and how it applies to us. This book has made it official: I am 100% in love with and dedicated to my African self and traditions.


  11. Powerful and Useful 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Feb 2013

    This book is very professionally written book indeed. I am an avid reader and mostly I read straight through books but this book has me going back over certain parts often. For me this is a good thing because this means it has my attention. The part about sacred geometry and Afrikan sacred number symbolism and how it relates to life is very profound. The book causes me to be deeply meditative and I am now rethinking my approach to spirit. My interest in Vodun is very high now.
