Product Description

The Holy Ajísíxwé - New Yorùbá-English Edition with commentary on key verses!


Re-introducing the sacred Ajísíxwé (pronounced "ah gee see way"). Now, for the first time in our current historical experience, post slavery and returning to our Mawufenu (Afrikan) traditions, some of the higher and more concrete sacred traditions found within African Vodun are being revealed for those Mawufenumeto (Afrikans) of good character, who wish to live original authentic Vodun versus practicing any of the corrupted and watered down traditions that are currently being passed along. These teachings were primarily passed along by ancient sages and elevated individuals whose names have been lost to time. The structure of Ajísíxwé differs from Kpoli Fa (Odu Ifa) in that it is primarily of a prose element. This is because these teachings were passed from person to person or person to groups. In many cases, there were groups of teachers instructing individuals and groups at one time.

Ajísíxwé is a profound testament to the eternal Vodun teachings. Ajísíxwé is concerned with teaching the primary nature of reality viewing Segbo (Creator) as the very Primal Fabric of the universe. The word Ajísíxwé itself means "upright, to be upright, to be righteous". In this, Ajísíxwé teaches that the most profound and powerful ways to be within Ajísíxwé is to constantly observe the rock of Vodún called the Nunywetonbu, or Triple Overstanding. The Triple Overstanding teaches us how to integrate the true knowledge of the Creator, the deities, the Elevated blood Ancestors and the eternal divine law into a comprehensive and peaceful way of life. Ajísíxwé teaches us that the one is dependent on the other if you seek to live an integrated life.

Ajísíxwé teaches against corruption and ego. This text represents some of our most ancient teachings (some of its content dating to over 4366 years ago) and stands as a testament speaking volumes in opposition to the current confusion that has been put forth as African Vodun.

An example of the teachings of the Ajísíxwé found in this sacred work states:

"Many are engaged in countless clever tricks, but none of these will go along with them to bring any good in the end. So how does one become truthful? And how can the Yɛdódè (net/veil of illusion) be torn away? It is spoken that you will submit to and merge with the acɛ́ of Gla Sɛ́gbó (the Creator's will, command), and walk in the Way of the Ancestral Will..."


"The true Vodúnvi do not simply follow empty rituals. The Vodúnvi are firmly bound to the duty of Vodún. Such is in the Name of the Immaculate Sɛ́gbó. One who lives the Triple Overstanding comes to know such a state of mind. The alitlélétɔ (one who travels the straight path) find and reveal the Door of Kɔvɔnu. The alitlélétɔ uplift, redeem and develop their family and relations. The alitlélétɔ are saved, and carried across the forest of tribulation by that which upholds the Hwlεngãn. The alitlélétɔ do not wander around begging. Such is in the Names of the Immaculate Kúlítɔ́, Sɛ́gbó and the hùn (deities)."

Of profound note is that the Ajisixwe was recorded by an ancient Gbe-speaking people, but in their language and the language we know today as Yorùbá; calling into question some of the standard history that we have been taught concerning both of these ancient people. This mystery has not been quite solved. This new edition is composed of that Yorùbá dialect with English translations of each verse. Now one can enjoy the choice of being able to chant this sacred text in its original language.

  1. Understanding the essence 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Feb 2021

    Avalu! the Holy Ajisixwe. A gift. The Holy Ajisixwe helps over- stand the esoteric meaning of Vodun.

  2. Sacred Scence Knowledge 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Apr 2020

    This book is by far, the only book I know of, that teaches our way of life system, in a succinct, logical, scientific manner, without corruption as perpetuated by yovo.

  3. a lot of work here 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Jun 2018

    I am picking up on a lot of Yoruba here. I now have a Yoruba teacher and he confirms this Yoruba. However, I shared some of this with him and he shared with his grandfather. He states that his grandfather says that much of the Yoruba is of an ancient nature used only by certain Babalawos and lineages. He says that it is a kind of esoteric Yoruba. This is not a bad thing. This tells me something about the author, especially since the author is African American. This tells me he is well studied. I am inspired by his scholarship.

    The teachings found in this book are one of a kind. They are a bit different from the Odus. I was initiated to Yemonja and Ogun 4 years ago and have studied the Odus. That's how I know there is a difference. That being said, this book is revealing a lot of other ancient teachings that maybe the elders in Benin or Nigeria can expound upon that we do not find in the Odu books. It shows also the Yoruba-Fon ties in our tradition and it makes me rethink how old their connections really are. This deserves more research.

  4. The addition of Yoruba is what we needed 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Feb 2018

    After seeing so much fake ATR (African Traditional Religion) stuff on the net I was a bit hesitant to start back purchasing books on ATR. I took the chance, for some reason, with this book after going over a bit of the blog on this site. The author seemed more authentic and seemed to be talking about the actual culture and I wanted a "holy" book in English and our language. This book does not disappoint and is real. The Yoruba is correct. I am taking a "second level" rigorous Yoruba course and even showed it to my Yoruba teacher who was fascinated to learn that an African-American had written this. I am thankful to have this and plan on learning more from Kilombo Restoration and Healing.

  5. Different and deep 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Nov 2017

    I like the language in here.

  6. true to heart 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Nov 2016

    This works speak of the ancient spiritual concepts in authenticity. It dispels the ideology that Voudoun is all about sacrifices and lore. It speaks to the true spirituality of an Afrukan people. No spookism here...of you want to experience the spirituality of ancient Afruka this is a great way to start. It's refreshing to see such principles spoken of through an Afruka perspective outside of the Kemetic tradition also.

  7. inside loom 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Nov 2016

    The material and information is profound and strikes a mighty blow against the presumed spookism in Voudoun culture. Concepts like "Grace" and the "Triple Overstanding" (known in Christianity as the Trinity )appear in this text of... dispelling the myth that these concepts were born in the Christian tradition. The text flows easy although there is a great deal of information to meditate over. I recommend this book for anyone who wishes to understand the depth of Afrukans Spiritual Science without the hocus pocus of certain traditionz

  8. Farewell to the confusion 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Aug 2015

    As I am sure this one of a few to come, this book bids us farewell to confusing and conflicting teachings in Vodún. So all I can say is that the holy teachings have arrived.

  9. Masterful and Rich 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Aug 2015

    This text is very rich and of a superb theological status. I think it should be studied even in theology schools or religin classes as a comparative text. The stricture is not easily comprehended if you are expecting your norm. For instance, many sacred texts can be picked up anywhere in the chapter and the text would read fairly coherent. With this one you may have to back up several paragraphs if you tried to do the same thing. It definitely flows but you cannot just randomly pick areas to read. I am glad to see that our blessed ones thought in such a complex nature.

  10. Good eye opener 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Aug 2015

    I pray that I am not stepping on any toes but I would first say that I love this book. Secondly, what is being said in this book seems to almost totally contradict what I have seen being done in Vodoun and other African religions. I have been doing a lot of searching and I have run into a lot of priests and teachers. Much of the character often runs along the same line. I observe but I don't speak on it. But I will say it is pretty bad stuff. These ancient Vodoun teachings contradict this bad behavior. The words found in this book teach us to be Elevated and above corruption. It teaches against tricks and lying and using titles to make gain. I am very grateful for this book because it confirms what I have known deep inside all along - what most of these people are talking about in Vodoun are complete lies.

    I take this book, well its content, as a standard by which to measure the realness of Vodoun priests and other practitioners. Thank YOU!!!!!

  11. Wonderful Teachings 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Aug 2015

    This is a truly spiritual work. I have been studying African traditions and this work is on a par with some of the highest teachings of any religion of the world baring none. The work seems to be greatly concerned with how we view God and how we deal with spirituality but it is an ancient text at the same time. I also have seen (I have not finished the last quarter) that it teaches a lot on breaking free of frivolous thoughts and actions. This work is filled with Proverbs, quotes, teachings and lessons. Deep down I always wondered where were teachings like this in our traditions and now I see this in a monumental form in this book Ajisixwe.

    I want to also add that I am quite impressed and pleased with the service I have received from the Kilombo people. It is kind of rare these days.
