I saw “Mama Chola Devotees” on my page here. I’m just going to speak something about this. Sure, you can be a “devotee” but remember, Mama Chola is NOT a goddess. Neither are any of the Kimpungulu (plural) (mpungo – singular). In Palo, the Kimpungulu are NOT worshipped. Nothing is worshipped. There is a belief in God, known as Nsambi. But he is also NOT worshipped.
So, sure, be a devotee. Just don’t be surprised if Mama Chola (or whatever mpungo) does not listen to you. They have certain invocations that are used to call upon them. They are NOT in books.
