Shango Santeria And The Orisha Of Thunder
By Baba Raul Canizares
31 Page Soft Cover Book
Shango came to America in the hearts of his devotees. They did not choose to make the middle passage. But many of them survived it because they had Shango's example of one who could beat any odds and make any situation advantageous. Shango exemplifies the philisophy of "When life throws lemons at you, make lemonade". His capacity to adapt, to break with old modes, to be individualistic and iconoclastic, makes Shango a perfect divinity for the new world, for all of these are traits that help us survive and thrive. It is in the spitit that I brazenly clain Shango as o ur beloved pradigm. The most populat Orisha in America.
