Although I’ve only been working with King Paimon for a short time, I’ve worked with Orisha Inle and received Him more than 10 years ago. As I read everything I could about King Paimon, I noticed some similarities between Him and Inle, here’s what I found:
King Paimon is said to have a ‘feminine’ face, yet is masculine in nature. Orisha Inle also is known to have a ‘feminine’ face, but is masculine in nature.
King Paimon is known to be a King of great wealth and who can bestow wealth. Orisha Inle is the Orisha who has great wealth and will give His children wealth.
King Paimon possesses great wisdom and is symbolized by serpents. Orisha Inle is known as the DIVINE PHYSICIAN of the Orishas and He is also symbolized by serpents, specifically the medical symbol with the entwined snakes.
Both King Paimon and Orisha Inle love and take offerings of fine food, elegant sweets and fine wines and both love offerings that are presented beautifully with the very best china and table arrangements. Both King Paimon and Orisha Inle like for their children and devotees to be well-dressed and clean when evoking and working with them.
I’m sure there are more similarities that I haven’t listed here, but I think it’s amazing what I’ve connected between these two amazing Divinities. Inle is my father in Ocha, and I don’t think it was by accident that I felt a connect with King Paimon from the moment I heard about Him.
