    LibraryThing Review Right after John Mason comes Baba Ifa Karade. This book takes the inclusive energy of Ifa to a new level by offering simple, comparative excerpts from religious texts from differing religions, even a list of chakras and their Yoruba counterparts. Interesting and mind/heart opening.
