Also known as
Bahlindjo is the resident spirit of the Ogun River in what is now Nigeria. He once shared this river with Yemaya, who is now associated with the sea, but the two remain closely associated. Bahlindjo is a spirit of fertility and healing.
Bahlindjo may or may not be an aspect of Ogun, but he has largely been absorbed by that dynamic orisha in his path as Ogun Balendjo. Bahlindjo may or may not be an independent spirit.
