Eshu is the Lord of the Crossroads, which means it is his job to offer us choices. Each time we come to a forked road in our path, it is Eshu who is giving us that choice. By propitiating him before we choose which way to continue, we may be assured a better future. Eshu is considered the god of fate and as such can be said to be the most important orisha.
