The Odù Ifá Sacred Scripture have 256 Odù. Each Odù originally had 800 poems, making a total of 256 x 800 = 204,800 poems. With every knowledgeable diviner that becomes an ancestor, a few poems are lost. Only about 10 percent of the poems are left.
We have the world's largest collection of Ifá poems and are working to transcribe, translate and preserve them in multimedia formats. In addition, we perpetually collect bona fide poems from knowledgeable communities of diviners around the world.
Supporting the IFÁ.fm Odù Ifá Preservation Program will make it possible for us to reach our goal of collecting, transcribing, translating and preserving all the extant Ifá poems.
