Yemaya, the beloved orisha is seen as the ocean waters and the supernal mother. She is the giver of all life and the sustenance of the world. With her help all things are possible; without her; there is only death and destruction. While Obatal is the seed of life, it is through Yemaya that the seed germinates and manifests in many living things.
Yemaya can be identified with Virgen de Regla
