Description of Olorun:

Olorun is the second manifestation of Olodumare, coming of the Yoruba Òlórúnm, Owner of the Orún (sky). Olorun is the one that is in direct bonding with the men.

Through sun, believers worship Olorun in the ñangareo, making account that in earth is going to occur an itá or when an Iyawó is born. He is the owner of the life, giving energy, sustenance in the terrestrial life, owner of the colors, the light, the air, the vigor and of the effort.

It is always by day ornight although we do not see it. To greet Olorun one stands in front of the sun with the arms extended and the palms open. It is not received as an Orisha.
