ORUNLA: Patron Saint of the Babalawo, the highest Priests of Santeria.
Orunla, or Orunmila, is the wise Orisha of Divination and Human Destiny.
Orunla was present at the creation of humanity and the forging of souls. Thus Orunla has the knowledge of the ultimate destiny of each soul, which is an important facet of Santeria practice. Working toward one’s destiny is to promote harmony. To move contrary to it creates discord, so believers look for insight as to their destiny and what they might currently be doing that runs contrary to that.
The table of Ifa, the most complex of divination methods used by trained Santeria priests represents him.
