"Grasping the Root of Divine Power" clarifies the fundamental concepts used in any occult system. The work pulls mainly from West African tradition but, is brought up to date using modern examples and guides for immediate application. The rarely taught nine position OBI divination system is shared and author HRU Assaan-ANU provides an approach of implementing this ancient oracle that will intrigue the novice and advanced student of divination. "Grasping the Root of Divine Power" covers the major Orisha in the West African tradition but, also shows their modern day and cross-geographical/cultural counterparts. After reading this work you'll be able to look at avant-garde figures of notoriety, as well, as your intimate ones and immediately decipher what Orisha or cosmic archetype they spawn from. This only scratches the surface of what is imparted in this potent work.

I am very pleased with the information contained within the pages of this wonderful book. I am also very comfortable with it. I appreciate the way that the author has carefully constructed sentences from highly effective words that are obviously divinely inspired through deep study and meditation. I would highly recommend this work to all who are seeking to not only learn how to be an Afrakan, but who want to understand the commonalities the make up the bridge that connects the human family of this planet. Further, I feel that this is the best introduction of those who are part of the Afrakan Diaspora who’s ancestors blood flows in the streets of this land, into Afrakan Indigenous religions that they have been involuntarily estranged from. It is crafted with the intention of birthing deep appreciation in it’s readers for ALL Indigenous religions of the human family of the planet Earth.

I have a lot of respect for this teacher. He is a level headed, rational, non judgmental, very thought provoking teacher. I’m just surprised that he is not as well known considering how much wisdom he carries and how well he teaches it. I will be buying all of his future books. Chief Yuya covers everything. He doesn’t skip over the uncomfortable topics applied to modern times. His books and YouTube videos are very helpful in understanding why our society is the way it is. The spiritual transformation that is occurring globally. I highly recommend this author.

I really enjoy this groundbreaking book for the reclaimation of Afrikan spirituality. It is a must have for those who are on the path to Orisha, Vodun, Kemetics, Akan, etc.. Although the author does not endorse any particular Afrikan spiritual path, the reader is left with a wealth of information to make a smooth transistion along one’s journey. Hru Yuya T. Assaan-Anu covers Altars, Orisa, OBI Diviniation and so much more for the beginner. He offers tools and theory to equip the reader in establishing communication with protector spirits and purification rituals.

Well written.

Key factors mentioned in this book is not only overstandable to devotees, but also to those who wish to remember, and seek illumination to our legacy that was somewhat watered down by the western world. It just goes to show that no matter what, or where we are on this marketplace our we are United in Conscious Blackness, which is Power!

I have not come across a book of this topic that was clear in its message. I recommend that you buy a hard vs digital copy. You will find yourself referencing back to it in your studies often. The price is very, very reasonable however; the further you get into this book, you will realize that it is a priceless item. Regardless of your level of understanding, this book is great for the beginner or advanced student. Extremely happy with this purchase as it will remain in my library for many years to come.

This book is a great book for beginners in the path of spiritual awakening and mastering the Powers of the Orishas that dwell within us.He gives you a step by step rendering of how to communicate with the spiritual forces of the cosmos by activating your melanin and tapping into the powerful cosmic consciousness of Vodun..This is a must read for those seeking to KNOW the protocols of how to effectively invoke these divine powers..What I like about Yuya is that he focuses more on training his students on how to bend these energy forces verses rushing them into initiations..

A very good fundamental book!

This book, are for those Africans in the diaspora that are in the beginning stages of trying to understand their true divine self in a non-religious sense, but in an African spiritual point of reference. This book focuses on the inner God within you; how we relate to our great ancestors and how to venerate them; and it also contains essential information on the wonderful nature spirits and their purpose in the whole scheme of things. I hope you enjoy it!

Asante Saana!

“Grasping The Root of Divine Power” was much more than I anticipated upon first glance. I have tried several times to create my own spiritual altar and line up spiritually with my own ancestry and Afrikan acestors as a whole; but I hardly knew where to begin. Speaking to other people created more confusion. This book gives the reader both a beginning foundation yet also encourages liberation and following your own path.

Feeling at home

I am on my second reading of this book as I am certain that I will obtain more understanding with subsequent readings. There is so much information giving that it is impossible to fully grasp the deep content. I believe the author to a fantastic teacher and humanitarian and I look forward to finishing and rereading his other book as well. I am a newer learner of Yoruba traditional belief system and still awakening from “zombie” mode, but this has been a wonderful opener and initiation or beginning.

But I love it

I came about Chief Yuya through other media platforms and purchased the book as part of my journey to reconnect with my African heritage. Personally I think what you get from this book will depend on where you are in your journey and where you want to take it. I’m a baby so this has been an enlightening! You probably can read it through very quickly but its a bit of a how to book as well so if you take it seriously it will take a while to work through it. But I love it
