About Mestre Irineu:
Mestre Raimundo Irineu Serra was born on December 15, 1890 in Saint Vincent Férrer. His parents came from a humble family, descendents of slaves who did cultivation work and lived on the land. Around the age of twenty, Irineu Serra began a journey that would lead him to the city of Rio Branco, Acre, where he eventually founded the path of the Santo Daime in the Amazon forest. Master Irineu conducted rituals, or works, in Rio Branco and by 1930 had a core of people gathered around him, out of which the Santo Daime religion was born. Mestre began receiving hymns and opened the way for the tradition of receiving hymns as practiced within the tradition.
