  1. life as a rasta womanJah Rastafari way of lifeJah Way of Life is called “Rastafari.” It was called “The Nazarite Vow,” in biblical times” To live as Rasta is easy. Read my books. Rasta Way of life, Life as a Rasta Woman to learn more. Basically you will eat “clean foods” also known as Ital food, lock your hair, and treat people with The same respect you desire. Fair enough, right?
  2. Jah say, be loving towards your brother – Love your neighbour and other nation people as if they are your brother and sisters. They are your siblings under the name of Jah Rastafari. This is one of the 10 Commandments. The most important one,” answered Jesus, “is this: ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.”
  3. rasta_meditation_han_cover_for_kindleJah reminds us to  Keep his Sabbath – This is the part most people fail to understand. The Sabbath is a Day just for Jah. One should Honour it and keep it holy. Jah will reward you I promise. You will only know this after you do it consistently. EVERY time after I keep the Sabbath, something good happens in my life, without fail. In my book on Rasta meditation, I talk about the forgotten “spiritual side” of Rastafari.
  4. To not worship, nor keep any “other Gods” – Jah does not like when his children believe in other Gods, or keep other beliefs, or have idols in their home, or in their way of life. Do not do this.The bible says he will let go and turn us over to our own devices, if and when we do this.
  5. Rasta_Way_of_Life_Cover_for_KindleMake Jah Rastafari #1 in your life in all things each Day. – Make Jah number one. Read your bible, give him thanks for all the things that make you happy, every day. Give thanks for all the things you know you could not live without, like fresh air, food, nature, family etc. Jah loves to be number one, he will take care of you, if you show him that you place him, and acknowledge him as “number 1” in all Things. Some examples praying over your food to Jah, asking him to bless the food before you eat it. When you enter your home, give him thanks, when you wake up in the morning, give him thanks again. Learn how to live with Jah in your life, read Rastafari meditation handbook. These suggestions are simple,  but Jah loves the Honour so much, he will acknowledge and honour you back.

Introduction

 

Every Rastaman was given life to walk the face of the earth as a “messenger of Jah.” He knows that in the physical he has been ordained to live as a humble spiritual King.  For this reason all Rasta man know, there are many things in this life he must refrain from partaking in.

Rasta Kings are Chosen at Conception

A Rasta man is “chosen at conception” to keep his mind, spirit and body clean to ensure, upon his transition, he may be deemed, clean, holy and  acceptable to enter Mount Zion.

This book was created for men who know that they too are Kings, and know that a true King has a special and unique, way of thinking, living and being. May Jah bless you on the journey, as you live the way of life as a Rastafari King.

Blessed Love. King Selassie I.

 

Rasta King Way of Life:

5 Things Rasta men teach their Rasta Children

  1. Rasta King teach his children to love &  Fear Jah – Rasta King’s children learn very young, that there is a consequence for every action. That there is one who sees and knows all things good and bad. His name is Jah, the almighty creator.
  2. Rasta King Teach his “Rasta Love” – Rasta children are taught that other nations are their brothers and sisters under Jah. With them we must share, be respectful, and live harmoniously, even if culture or skin color is different. This is how we as Rastafari share “Rasta Love.”
  1. Rasta King Teach his children to Study black leaders – As soon as Rasta children are old enough to read on their own, they are taught to study the lives of black leaders. Such studies teach Rasta children about, equality, helps to build strength, perseverance, character, and wisdom, as their personalities are molding. Rasta children will learn to see themselves as “here to make a difference”  rather than here to be “self indulgent, in Babylon”.
  2. Rasta King Teach His children to be Proud of their Roots & Culture – Rasta Children learn that their heritage is a gift. One of which they should be proud and that Black slavery was an “interruption” in African history, not African history itself. All Rasta children regardless of their ethnicity learn about African Roots Culture and History.
  3. Rasta King Teach his children to be Patient kind and humble  – Patience comes from fearing jah, and reading his words. Rasta King teach his children to be humble, not arrogant before Jah, and to take an interest in the holy bible.
  4. Rasta King teach their Children to be Respectful – Rasta Children are taught to be Respectful to the elderly and the weak/meek. Rasta King teach his children that, in this way Rasta children are blessed in this life, and save up rewards with the Most High Jah, by these actions.
  5. Rasta King Teach his children to Say “no” to Babylon… – Babylon offers everything. To be a true King or Rasta Queen one must be speculative. Rasta King teach his Children that, not everything is for Royalty, but that all is for the heathen. Lust, lies, whoredom, self hate, wickedness etc. Rasta children must pause, and think, before saying “yes” to all things.
  6. Rasta King Teach his children to Read the King James Version Bible daily: Rasta King knows that one can acquire, wisdom, and knowledge, from reading the King James version bible. A Rasta King encourages his Rasta child to start reading the King James Version bible between age  10-13 on his/her own. Before, then he himself will read the bible to his child explaining the verses and text in a simplistic manner as he reads. Rasta King knows he is raising an Empress or King, and that requires time effort and love.

Haile Selassie: New way of life speech in full

King Selassie I - Rastafari

way of life. We search for a way of life in which all men will be treated as responsible human beings, able to participate fully in the political affairs of their government; a way of life in which ignorance and poverty, if not abolished, are at least the exception and are actively combatted; a way of life in which the blessings and benefits of the modern world can be enjoyed by all without the total sacrifice of all that was good and beneficial in the old Ethiopia. We are from and of the people, and our desires derive from and are theirs.

Can this be achieved from one dusk to the next dawn, by the waving of a magic wand, by slogans or by Imperial declaration? Can this be imposed on our people, or be achieved solely by legislation? We believe not. All that we can do is provide a means for the development of procedures which, if all goes well, will enable an increasing measure and degree of what we seek for our nation to be accomplished. Those who will honestly and objectively view the past history of this nation cannot but be impressed by what has already been realised during their lifetime, as well as be awed by the magnitude of the problems which still remain.

Annually, on this day, we renew our vow to labour, without thought of self, for so long as Almighty God shall spare us, in the service of our people and our nation, in seeking the solutions to these problems. We call upon each of you and upon each Ethiopian to do likewise……

Above all, Ethiopia is dedicated to the principle of the equality of all men, irrespective of differences of race, colour or creed.
As we do not practice or permit discrimination within our nation, so we oppose it wherever it is found.
As we guarantee to each the right to worship as he chooses, so we denounce the policy which sets man against man on issues of religion.

As we extend the hand of universal brotherhood to all, without regard to race or colour, so we condemn any social or political order which distinguishes among God’s children on this most specious of grounds.

Rastafarian Religion:10 Facts & Beliefs

Rasta Religion –  18 Jah Prayers White Rastafari

Some  Rasta Stereotypes – Jah Rastafari Morning Prayer

  1. 51fQ7SPHsSL._SX311_BO1,204,203,200_The God of Rastafari – The “God” of Jah Rastafari is “King Selassie I of Ethiopia, crowned King of Ethiopia November 2nd 1930. Some people wonder why we praise King Selassie I if he is dead. To Rasta King Selassie I never dies. Give thanks and praises to the Most High.
  2. The Colors of Rastafari – The official colors of Rastafari are Red Yellow and Green. The same colors that are on the Ethiopian flag. Sometimes we include white or black.
  3. Who was the first Rasta? – This is a tough Question to answer. If you ask me personally now that I have thought about it…all the main men in the bible. Samson, Solomon, Samuel, Ezra…King David…Jesus Christ….apart from them you have Leonard Howell. Google him.
  4. Biblical Royal lineage of King Selassie I – King Menelik, the child of Queen of 250px-Ras_Mäkonnen_(Wäldä-Mika'él)_(1852-1906)Sheba and King Solomon was King Selassie I uncle. Royal blood line from the lineage of King David and the Tribe of Judah. (left is a photo of King Selassie I father, Ras Makonnen.)
  5. King and Queen of Ethiopia – I am told first time in History a King and Queen were crowned (King of Ethiopia and Queen of Ethiopia) at the Same time. In Rastafari Culture there is no such thing as a woman beneath her man. If a Rasta woman is submissive to her Kingman, it is because it is written on her heart, not because Rastafari calls for her to do that.
  6. King Selassie I birthday celebrated – King Selassie I Date of birth is July 23 1892 and is celebrated by Rasta every year as “Earth Strong.”
  7. Groundation Day – King Selassie I visited Jamaica on April 21nd 1966. That day is know celebrated by Rastafari people worldwide as “Groundation Day.”
  8. Dreadlocks – Hair worn in Dreadlocks of Rasta Represent, Dedication to Jah, King 1-sexy-black-man-dreadlocksSelassie I, a symbolic crown, a natural way of life. No fuss, no vanity. “Yahweh spoke to Moses and said, ‘Speak to the Israelites and say:  If a man or a woman wishes to make a vow, the Nazirite vow, to vow himself to Yahweh, he will abstain from wine and fermented liquor, he will not drink vinegar derived from one or the other, he will not drink grape juice or eat grapes, be they fresh or dried.  For the duration of his vow he will eat nothing that comes from the vine, not even juice of unripe grapes or skins of grapes.  As long as he is bond by his vow, no razor will touch his head; until the time for which he has vowed himself to Yahweh, he will not go near a corpse, he will not make himself unclean for his fathjah rastafari beleifser or his mother, or his brother or his sister, should they die, since on his head he carries his vow to his God.  Throughout the whole of his vow he is a person consecrated to Yahweh.”Numbers 6:1- 8
  9. Freedom of Self – Rasta believe every man should be allowed to live his life as he chooses. For more Rastafari Beliefs and Principles read the book on amazon.com
  10. Rastafari is not a Religion – Rasta says Rastafari is not a Religion. Rasta say Rastafari is a way of life. Pure and simple. There are no Rastafari practices which one must do. More Rastafari Religion Facts to teach your child Here.

Although she was well into her seventies, the Empress Mother Eleni stepped in to act as her step-great-grandson’s regent until 1516, when he came of age. During this time, she was aware that the neighboring Muslim states were benefitting from the assistance of other, larger Muslim countries like the Ottoman Empire. Eleni sought to neutralize this advantage by dispatching the Armenian Mateus to Portugal to ask for assistance. However, the Portuguese response did not arrive in Ethiopia until much later, when an embassy led by Dom Rodrigo de Lima arrived at Massawa on April 9, 1520. Transversing the Ethiopian highlands, they did not reach Dawit’s camp until October 19 of that year. Francisco Álvares provides us a description of the Emperor:

His appearance: “In age, complexion, and stature, he is a young man, not very black. His complexion might be chestnut or bay, not very dark in colour; he is very much a man of breeding, of middling stature; they said that he was twenty-three years of age, and he looks like that, his face is round, the eyes large, the nose high in the middle, and his beard is beginning to grow. In presence and state he fully looks like the great lord that he is.”
