Who is Tiembla Tierra in Palo Mayombe? Deity of great wisdom

Who is Tiembla Tierra

In the Rule of Palo Mayombe, Earth Trembles is distinguished as the king of the world (mpgungo) since it is who governs the Universe and everything that sits on it.

  • It personifies the mentality and wisdom that an individual can have.

Within the currents of the Bantu culture is the Palo Mayombe, whose foundations come from the African continent. 

Earth trembles is one of the spiritual entities that is an essential part of religious rituals, which is given the task of creating the Universe as part of the 16 kings of the world.

It is traditionally known as Pandilanga or Mama Kengue, relating it to paternal energies, with the physiognomy of a grandfather full of knowledge and skills who is always protecting his children and for this, his figure stands out within the Palo Mayombe ceremonies.

I sing to Earth Trembling to request his presence.

Offerings to the African deity:

The nganguleros place the offerings to Tiembla Tierra at the foot of the sacred ceiba tree.

It is said that without Mama Fumbe-Ceiba there is no nganga, the significant ceiba is the throne and the house of Tiemblatierra.

Sacred Earthquake Ceremony:

There are many rituals that are performed within the Palo Mayombe ceremonies, which are secret and of great significance for the mayomberos.

In this sacred religion, you do not work only to harm as many say, you also work with your deity to:

  • Clear up thoughts,
  • Achieve mental stability,
  • free people from justice,
  • ensure health and well-being.

Earthquake ceremonies are always held on the mountain.aña Under the supervising eye of the Tata or Father Ngnanga, their sacred rituals can only be known by those who belong to the munanzo (house of the religious cult of Palo Mayombe).

Let us always remember: There are no bad religions, but there are bad religious!

Who is Tiembla Tierra in Santeria?

King Earthquake is given the same value and distinction as to the Orisha Obbatalá within the Osha-Ifá Rule.

Obatalá is considered the orisha father of the universe, provider of wisdom and humility, a wise old man who advises men on earth to follow the good path.

In the Yoruba pantheon he possesses great power, even over the other Orisha and before the court of Olofi and Olodumare.
