VOODOU MYTHOLOGY

The Voodoo Spirits of Haiti & the Caribbean

BONDYE

Caribbean Supreme God

Also known as BON-DIEU, BONDJE, DJO

Very senior Voudou Top God

He appears very aloof. Don’t bother to knock — just go away.

Being a mix of badly and vaguely taught Christianity, mixed with African mythology, Voodou is almost a monotheistic religion by the back door.

Thus BONDYE is the Voodou monoGod equivalent of JEHOVAH. But the polytheistic side comes with the LOA, giving plenty of lesser deity spirits to worship. BONDYE does actually seem quite aloof (no doubt because of his African origins) while the LOA flit in and out of everyday life.

BONDYE is generally referred to as male although, like most monoGods, it’s really down to his own personal preference. Is he married to Mother Goddess GRAN-MET or is he really her?
