In Trinidad, Osun is associated with the color pink. Oriki Osun teach us how Osun is synonymous with patience and attention to detail.
She is the one who removes every bone from her children’s food. She is a master braider, whose precision beautifies and adorns heads.
When we speak of Osun, we are talking about the highest standards of excellence. She is synonymous with precision.
Consequently, when the babalawo concludes his ritual, he will turn his attention to Osun to verify that things have been done to satisfaction.
When Osun approves of your work, you can be confident that you have achieved high quality. When she disapproves, you know that it is in your best interest to improve.
As the Cubans say, It is preferable to begin one thousand times than to finish one time poorly. Coincidentally, Osun is the patron of Cuba!
