LANGUAGE OF ONE P. X: RASTAFARI: THE GLOBAL FRONT







"NO MAN IS AN ISLAND"-




DENNIS EMMANUEL BROWN









"The Rastafari movement is a monotheistic, Abrahamic, new religious movement that arose in a Christian culture in Jamaica in the 1930s.[1][2] Its adherents, who worship Haile Selassie I of Ethiopia, former Emperor of Ethiopia (1930–1936 and 1941–1974), as the Second Advent, are known as Rastafarians, or Rastas. The movement is sometimes referred to as "Rastafarianism", but this term is considered derogatory and offensive by some Rastas, who dislike being labelled as an "ism".[3]

"The name Rastafari is taken from Ras Tafari, the pre-regnal title of Haile Selassie I, composed of Amharic Ras (literally "Head," an Ethiopian title equivalent to Duke), and Haile Selassie's pre-regnal given name, Tafari. Rastafari are generally distinguished for asserting the doctrine that Haile Selassie I, the former, and final, Emperor of Ethiopia, is another incarnation of the Christian God, called Jah.[5] They see Haile Selassie I as Jah or Jah Rastafari, who is the second coming of Jesus Christ onto the Earth" -

The vibration of the rastafari movement is globally known. Thursday gives a brief insight beyond the common themes of cannabis, and universal rythyms of reggae (regal music); The honorable Robert Nesta Marley O.M communicated unity, love and peace in prophetic resonance. As an international third world artist, in his own lifetime he was involved in the religious, but mystic practice and idealogies of the rastafari movement. In my early years of study, i found most of the masses had little knowledge of the deep origins of ras tafari mokennen, the religious aspect (mansions of rastafari, boboshanti, nyabinghi and twelve tribes) and the movement of rastafari, aside from what's communicated through the culture:

-A culture globally known and celebrated, is also considered a language of one. We close june with a exclusive interview of lauryn hill through NPR.org's Zoe Chase, on the lauryn hill past, present and the future moves of the modern day's leading voices.
