Odu Ifa Prayer

K’a ma fi kanju j’aiye.
K’a ma fi wara wara n’okun oro.
Ohun a ba if s’agba,
K’a ma if se’binu.
Bi a ba de’bi t’o tutu,
K’a simi simi,
K’a wo’waju ojo lo titi;
K’a tun bo wa r’ehìn oran wo;
Nitori ati sun ara eni ni.

Let us not engage the world hurriedly.
Let us not grasp at the rope of wealth impatiently.
That which should be treated with mature judgment,
Let us not deal with in a state of anger.
When we arrive at a cool place,
Let us rest fully;
Let us give continuous attention to the future;
and let us give deep consideration to the consequences of things.
And this because of our (eventual) passing.
