Mutwa, Vusamazulu Credo - On the Trinity
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
Vusamazulu Credo Mutwa – Zulu Shaman [Dreams, Prophecies and Mysteries]
…......a family of :
- God the Father, known by my people, the Zulus as Unkunkulu, which means the 'Greatest of the Great Ones' ;
- and the Great Mother, known by the Zulus as Nomkumbulwana which means 'the Flower of the Many Fields, the Lady of Many Plowshares';
- and God the Son, known by the Zulus as Umvelinangey, which means 'the First born of the Almighty'.
And the idea of a trinity of a Godhead, is universal, not only throughout Africa but also throughout many countries of the world. You most commonly find a father, a mother and child trinity, but sometimes with some tribes such as Nigerian tribes you find a trinity of three main gods or three female gods.
