What is the symbol of the Rastafari religion?

What is the symbol of the Rastafari religion? by Yuajah Wolks

Answer by Yuajah Wolks:

This is a great question and I am happy to answer it. The 2 “symbols” of the Rastafari Livity and Movement is…

  1. The Lion of Judah: A lion holding or carry a golden scepter with the Ethiopian flag of Red Yellow and Green, hanging off of it.
  1. The Jewish Star of David: The Star of David representing the Kings of Judah, from biblical times, including King Selassie I.
  1. Sometimes we Rasta and manufacturing companies like to combine the star of David and the Lion of Judah. Its a very common symbol on Rastafari clothing.
  2. “Rasta Prayers: Rasta Prayers and Healing Scripture” in the introduction of this book…I explain the purpose of both these symbols.
    Blessed Love. King Selassie I.

DEDICATION

To those who seek Jah, for they know the way of life of truth, is amongst us.

Rastafari.

Why a Rasta Bible?      

As I read certain parts of the holy bible, I and I feel “high. You too may experience the meditation of Rastafari when you read these bible scripture.

This book is for those who yearn to know and feel what Rastafari know and feel. Jah love, Jah Guidance, Jah presence is real wisdom. Read his words; allow your mind to be renewed by them. Re-read them 2x daily, feel your spirit begin to become clean.

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 have compiled for you my favorite bible scripture. They are full of Rastafari Wisdom and Overstanding. Read them and feel the meditation take shape in your spirit.

Blessed Love.

Introduction

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.

 

 

7 And so I prayed, and understanding was given me; I entreated, and the spirit of Wisdom came to me.

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.

15 May Jah grant me to speak as he would wish and conceive thoughts worthy of the gifts I have received, since he is both guide to Wisdom and director of sages;

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,

30 for light must yield to night, but against Wisdom evil cannot prevail.

Blessings of Wisdom

18 My child, from your youth choose discipline,

and when you have gray hair you will still find wisdom.

19 Come to her like one who plows and sows,

and wait for her good harvest.

For when you cultivate her you will toil but little,

and soon you will eat of her produce.

20 She seems very harsh to the undisciplined;

fools cannot remain with her.

21 She will be like a heavy stone to test them,

and they will not delay in casting her aside.

22 For wisdom is like her name;

she is not readily perceived by many.

23 Listen, my child, and accept my judgment;

do not reject my counsel.

24 Put your feet into her fetters,

and your neck into her collar.

25 Bend your shoulders and carry her,

and do not fret under her bonds.

26 Come to her with all your soul,

and keep her ways with all your might.

27 Search out and seek, and she will become known to you;

and when you get hold of her, do not let her go.

28 For at last you will find the rest she gives,

and she will be changed into joy for you.

29 Then her fetters will become for you a strong defense,

and her collar a glorious robe.

30 Her yoke[c] is a golden ornament,

and her bonds a purple cord.

31 You will wear her like a glorious robe,

and put her on like a splendid crown.[d]

32 If you are willing, my child, you can be disciplined,

and if you apply yourself you will become clever.

33 If you love to listen you will gain knowledge,

and if you pay attention you will become wise.

34 Stand in the company of the elders.

Who is wise? Attach yourself to such a one.

35 Be ready to listen to every godly discourse,

and let no wise proverbs escape you.

36 If you see an intelligent person, rise early to visit him;

let your foot wear out his doorstep.

37 Reflect on the statutes of the Lord,

and meditate at all times on his commandments.

It is he who will give insight to[e] your mind,

and your desire for wisdom will be granted.

Sirach – King James Version Bible.

 

What is Rastafari?

Rastafari is a daily celebration of African Roots and Culture. The purpose of Rastafari is to guide one to live clean and pure that a person may be deemed “fit” (by Jah) to Enter Holy Mount Zion.

What is a Rasta?

A Rasta is someone who adheres to the Rastafari Livity (way of life). Rasta are “called” to carry “the light” of Jah Rastafari, and to deliver “the message” of this way of life to others. By this we can see that to embrace the Rastafari way of life is a responsibility and commitment of the heart.

Beliefs of Rasta about God?

Rasta know that God is Jah. that Jah is an “African” Spirit. That he is very loving, forgiving and very powerful. Rasta “know”that Jah created heaven and earth, the first man and woman, Adam and Eve, and he parted the Red Sea for the Israelites. “Jah” is the God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob spoken about in the scriptures of the Christian Bible. Jah “Raised up” King Selassie I as his Elect, to protect the Garden of Eden.

What is The Rastafari Livity?

The Rastafari Livity is a Celebration of African Roots and Culture that honors Jah. Rasta live life daily in all things they do to honor and show love for Jah, Jah Elect and Jah Creations. From the food that is cooked (Ital) clean and natural, to the way we wear our hair (in dreadlocks)fuss and vanity free, to the colors that we wear (Red Yellow and Green). Rastafari Livity is a commitment of love and honour to and for Jah, the Almighty Creator of all living things all the days of our life.

The Spiritual Duty of Rasta

  1. To love – As Rasta it is our Job to show love. Rasta does not reject love in any form. If someone asks us to do them a favor, we do it…to show even more love. If someone wants to give a Rasta a hug we do not refuse it. Some more ways Rasta show love is by being there for our friends and families, and Spending time in and surrounded by nature, to show Jah, the creator we love and appreciate the land he has given us. As Rasta showing love is one of the ways how we honour Jah.
  2. To Liv Free – To live Free as Rasta is very important. Rasta believes life should have no restrictions. As long as a person is not “hurting life” or “taking life”, one should live as one chooses. “Freedom” in life is the basis for being one with Jah. Freedom to love and honour Jah, Freedom to Roam, freedom to spend our spiritual time  as we choose… Just how Jah, the creator, intended!
  3. To be a “Servant” of Jah – To fulfill the duty of Rasta as Jah servant is very simple.Iit means helping and loving other people. As Rasta we see ourselves as “extensions” of Jah helping hand, heres on earth. Rasta allows Jah to “use us” as his instruments, to provide help, hope assistance whenever the opportunity presents itself. Rasta always say “yes” to opening the door for others, to carrying a grocery bag, to lending money to those who ask. It is the duty of Rasta to Serve Jah by serving his creations (others)
  4. To Enter Holy Mount Zion – The Purpose of the Rastafari Livity is to provide a guide for those who desire to enter Zion (heaven). Zion is where Jah, the Most High roams. There is only love, peace, light, freedom, wholeness, and Jah “light” in Zion. Only those with clean loving, Hearts can enter Zion. It is our Duty as Rasta, to follow Rastafari way of life, as our Guide.. so that our soul may enter Holy Mount Zion.
