Ndiigbo, déémé dèèmè nu-o!
bu umu Chineke kere eke;
Anyi ga na-enye Ya ekene.
Ekene diri aha Ya-o!

Odinani maka iwenite odinala anyi

Odinani, the Igbo traditional religion is a philosophy that has stood the test of time. To understand the basis for Igbo philosophy, we must understand first the Igbo concept of the Cosmos, a logical concept that makes few pretensions about the great unknown. This concept has survived the introduction of Middle Eastern religious beliefs and modern science. The Igbo belief is therefore both metaphysical and scientific as well as sacred and socio-environmental.
Odinani is anchored on the sanctity of Ani, the Earth Deity, a creation of Chineke [EDAY*]
