Logun Ede

topic posted Wed, June 30, 2010 - 2:08 AM by  Dominic
Does anyone know anything about this Orisha? A friend of mine received as a gift something from a friend whom they claimed was an Orisha, called Logun Ede. I have heard the name before but for the life of me, can't remember anything about them?

Thanks in advance,

    hello Dominic, Logun Ede is the son of Oshun Iponda and Inle he is considered the "price of the Orishas" the most fearsome warrior yet the most delicate. I think he is an awesome Orisha and I'm very proud to have him also. I received him about a year ago and Im very proud about having him living in my home, he continues to amaze me. Maferefun Ologun Ede!

      Asiel, Dominic,

      I'm from Candomble, initiated to Osala (Obatala). Logum Ede is a very common orisha in my tradition - common as in well known and worshipped all over Brazil. In Candombe we don't say that he is "the price of the Orishas" but we say that he is the prince of the Efon Nation - with Oshun being the queen. This reference is more of a "he's a little prince" notion then "oh...the crown prince"...he is quite a capricious orisha - vain, somewhat aloof, narcisistic, a pretty boy who love all nice things in this world.

      People who have Logum Ede as their main Orisha (yes, we do crown this Orisha in Candomble. He has 3 roads or qualities in our tradition) are usually pretty much the same way - little narcissistic, vain and arrogant princes! At their worse, they can be the perfect archetypes of very pretty but also arrogant, superficial and unapproachable gay boys (not man, boys). Baby preacocks who love to show off their tail feathers.

      I have never heard of Logum being the most fearsome warrior - and to be honest, I could never see him that way. Logun Ede, and people from Logun Ede, have a way with life where they don't really fight fearsome but try and achieve their goals by being charming, cunning and maybe even manipulative. They try and achieve their goals by using their looks and by glamouring people.

      I have not heard about Logum being Ologun (or Oloogun, owner of medicine) but I believe this to be true, knowing that his father is Inle Ibualama, an orisha of medicine.

      More then anything else, Logun Ede is an orisha of wealth, opportunity and survival (lucky escapes)…All this being said, Logun Ede can be a good and loyal friend, who will shower those he loves with riches, joy and excitement. He is a young orisha and the things he brings into people’s lives are the things younger people enjoy most.

      I hope this is helpful.

    Loggun Ede is the son of Oshun and Ochosi...he can be received as a gift for is not uncommon for children of Oshun to receive Loggun Ede as well as the orisha from her pantheon.

      Logun Ede does not exist in Santeria/Lucumi, he is known as Laro instead. He is not a warrior, but a fisherman and wise man. He is considered to be an orisha of great knowledge, especially that of working with the sweet waters of the world to bring riches and wealth, to punish ,to cure and cast disease, etc.
