In Rastafari there is no “Rasta Bible” However, This book is a compilation of some of my most cherished bible scripture, relevant to Rastafari and heartfelt by me as an Empress. I share them with you in the hopes that you too may experience the wisdom of Rastafari and feel the love and might of Jah in your soul.
This book is for those who seek Rastafari spiritual understanding and wisdom, and this book is also for those who know that the bible must contain some text that can provide one with spiritual training of the mind that will mold one to become wise and draw closer to Jah.

I too am mortal like everyone else, a descendant of the first man formed from the earth. I was modeled in flesh inside a mother’s womb,
2 where, for ten months, in blood I acquired substance — the result of virile seed and pleasure, sleep’s companion.
3 I too, when I was born, drew in the common air, I fell on the same ground that bears us all, and crying was the first sound I made, like everyone else.
4 I was nurtured in swaddling clothes, with every care.
5 No king has known any other beginning of existence;
6 for there is only one way into life, and one way out of it.
If you are in a spiritual battle,
and need some guidance I highly recommend this book.
8 I esteemed her more than scepters and thrones; compared with her, I held riches as nothing.
9 I reckoned no precious stone to be her equal, for compared with her, all gold is a pinch of sand, and beside her, silver ranks as mud.
10 I loved her more than health or beauty, preferred her to the light, since her radiance never sleeps.
11 In her company all good things came to me, and at her hands incalculable wealth.
12 All these delighted me, since Wisdom brings them, though I did not then realize that she was their mother.
13 What I learned diligently, I shall pass on liberally, I shall not conceal how rich she is.
14 For she is to human beings an inexhaustible treasure, and those who acquire this win Jah’s friendship, commended to him by the gifts of instruction.
16 for we are in his hand, yes, ourselves and our sayings, and all intellectual and all practical knowledge.
17 He it was who gave me sure knowledge of what exists, to understand the structure of the world and the action of the elements,
18 the beginning, end and middle of the times, the alternation of the solstices and the succession of the seasons,
19 the cycles of the year and the position of the stars,
20 the natures of animals and the instincts of wild beasts, the powers of spirits and human mental processes, the varieties of plants and the medical properties of roots.
21 And now I understand everything, hidden or visible, for Wisdom, the designer of all things, has instructed me.
22 For within her is a spirit intelligent, holy, unique, manifold, subtle, mobile, incisive, unsullied, lucid, invulnerable, benevolent, shrewd,
23 irresistible, beneficent, friendly to human beings, steadfast, dependable, unperturbed, almighty, all-surveying, penetrating all intelligent, pure and most subtle spirits.
24 For Wisdom is quicker to move than any motion; she is so pure, she pervades and permeates all things.
25 She is a breath of the power of Jah, pure emanation of the glory of the Almighty; so nothing impure can find its way into her.
26 For she is a reflection of the eternal light, untarnished mirror of Jah’s active power, and image of his goodness.
27 Although she is alone, she can do everything; herself unchanging, she renews the world, and, generation after generation, passing into holy souls, she makes them into Jah’s friends and prophets;
28 for Jah loves only those who dwell with Wisdom.
29 She is indeed more splendid than the sun, she outshines all the constellations; compared with light, she takes first place,

How to make the pastry
You will need…
4 cups of all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon ground turmeric
1 teaspoon of salt
1 cup vegetable shortening or lard, at room temperature (look for non-hydrogenated shortening)
How to Make the Filling
You will need…
3 scallions, including green tops
2 scotch bonnet chilies
1 ½ pounds ground beef or chuck
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 ½ cups fine bread crumbs
¾ teaspoon ground thyme
¾ teaspoon ground turmeric
salt and freshly ground pepper
1 cup water
Make the outer crust
In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, turmeric, and salt.
Stir with a whisk to blend.
Cut in the shortening with a pastry blender or 2 dinner knives until the dough has the consistency of cornmeal.
Gradually add just enough cold water to hold the dough together, mixing it in with a fork.
Take care not to overwork your dough; it should just come together.
Form the dough into a disk and wrap it in the plastic wrap.
Refrigerate the dough while you make the filling, or for as long as overnight.
If chilled overnight, remove from the refrigerator 15 minutes before rolling out
How to make the filling
Cut up the onions, scallions, and chilies
Add to the beef and mix well.
In a Dutch oven or large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat, then cook the meat mixture, stirring frequently, until lightly browned, about 10 minutes.
Stir in the bread crumbs, seasonings, and water.
Cover and simmer for 20 – 30 minutes, or until thickened; the mixture should be just wet, not runny or dry. Remove from the heat and let cool while you roll out the dough.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Combine the filling and Pastry
Divide the dough into 24 even sized pieces.
On a lightly floured surface, roll out each piece of dough to a thickness of about ⅜ of an inch. a little thicker than pie dough
and cut into a round shape using a can, glass, or cup about 4 inches across.
Place the rounds on the ungreased baking sheets Cover the rounds you are not working on with a damp cloth.
Spoon filling onto a round to cover half of the pastry, leaving a ¼ inch border.
Fold the other half over and seal the edges by crimping with a fork,. Bake the patties for 30 – 35 minutes, or until golden. Serve hot!
Enjoy. Jah Bless.

For those of you who don’t know Ital means (Vegetarian) or non meat meal. Mostly Rastafari people use the word Ital to describe non meat vegetarian cooking. I thought it would be fun to post a simple recipe for an “Ital” Jamaican meal. You can add meat or fish to it if you like.
How to make Jamaican Style Rice and Peas (the easy way)
- No Jamaican meal is complete without “rice and peas.” When I make rice and peas – I cheat. I don’t like laborious cooking. It wears me out.
- Go to the Caribbean or Asian market and buy (“Mr. Goudas”) Red Kidney beans in the can.
- Go home and cook some white rice, just the way you like it.
- Dump the kidney beans (comes already cooked in the can) into the white rice. Voila! You have Jamaican style Rice and Peas!
Jamaican Style Green Banana
If you want to even pretend to be Jamaican, you have to know how to cook up some Green banana!
- Go to your local market and buy some green bananas.
- Go home and slice the bananas in 2 width wise
- Then make a slit only skin deep length wise on both halves (this will cause the bananas to be able to breathe as you boil them)
- Throw them into some boiling water
- Boil until you can poke your bananas through the skin easily
- I find I boil mine for about 30 minutes for them to get very tender
- when ready take them out, let them cool, mash them up and put some butter on them. (Great for kids, tastes like mashed potatoes)
Jamaican Style Boiled Cabbage
- Finely dice some cabbage,
- boil it just a little about 10 minutes
- Drain off the water
- fry the cabbage in some oil with some salt pepper and some onion and garlic
- Add Carrots or Green peppers if you like, for color and texture.
I highly recommend you try all three together to get the Jamaican food experience. But add some meat or some fish if you prefer. Thanks for reading my beauties. Jah Bless.
