Aguiri encuto Enganga Muluguanga embonda ensara engando dianquisi Malongo.

Listen to the words of a Palo Monte’s Elder High Priest about the procedure to create a Bantu fetish for healing. Enganga es medicina, Enganga is medicine. For what, whom and how, you will see. Only if it is needed to be.

Todo nace del Espitu. Everything is born from Spirit. Ensambia ensucururí¹ Sambia Entoto.
Dios se revela, Dios del cielo y Dios de la tierra. Sambia enguatuca. Dios quiere. God wants.

Y nostros lo hacemos. And we do it.
Tata ensara malongo.
Con el favor de Dios. With God’s Blessings.
For this reason a real Engangulero knows so much about God and rarely speaks of brujeria.
La creacion, the genesis, contains a í±oca, a snake, which lies at the bottom of some cauldrons. But why? Porque Dios wanted us to fill a pot with dirts and stinky rotten stuff and pretend it is real and powerful?
Si, that’s a preconcept. I assume you can get it.
