About Eshu


Esu is the Divine Messenger between God and Man.   Esu sits at the Crossroad.

Esu is the Orisa that offers choices and posibility..

Esu is the gatekeeper, the guardian of the door.

Esu safeguards the principle of freewill.

Esu is the keeper of Ase.

Esu is called the divine trickster that lures man’s emotions creating variety which spices life.

Esu brings out the fool in man.  Esu brings out the symbolic child in man.  Esu’s mischief serves to wake a person up and teach them a lesson.

Esu represents the balance of nature.  Day and night, white and black, construction and destruction.  Esu is an old man and a child.   Absolute balance of nature.

Esu has a voracious appetite.  Esu has a constant drive and is always ready (erect penis).

Esu counterbalances aspects of our reality.  Esu is the patron of the “underworld” and their way of survival.

Esu—The means justify the end!

Esu must always be appeased first.

Ase O!
