There are a few things to question here. To take a few:
-As it's been said, Empress Menen.
-He was told to keep the meeting a secret.
-Didn't he say that the Emperor deliberatly was trying to fool his people by the 1975-story.
-What murderer is he talking about. The man in the LN didn't shoot nobody, at least not there.
-the LN story again, have anyone heard of that event before. If not, very strange. Why not use a valid story instead, as if there is a shortage of HIM wonders, over a farytale.
-One common reason to lie is to cover up another lie and when most men lie, why wouldn't the yogi.
-Didn't he imply that the Emperor had good sleep because of him. Promoting his yogatecnic. Yoga is a nice tool but also commercial buissness. Millions of dollars to be made.
-And also, "pierced through his heart". On top of all other things that is just to much for I.
With this said I do not say he didn't meet HIM but it is very questionable and also with this said, I have not said HIM did not praise yoga or eastern science because HIM did in fact, at least that's how I read HIM speech to Rahdakrishnan:
"Were the thoughts of Plato and Socrates, the beliefs of Christianity and Judaism not harmonized with Hindu philosophy; were Yoga and its various stages not exposed to Western thought; had Western religion and philosophy not been exposed to the philosophy and religion of the East through Your Excellency's persistent endeavour, how much the poorer would human thought have been!" Haile Selassie I, Oct 13, 1965
I might have a too suspicios eye here but I came across this clip when a "Rasta" posted this video on a reggaeboard with the title, "Wasn't this what we Rastas always said" and I find that to be untrue. Rastafari know Rastafari lives but I have never heard of HIM meeting with this yogi until now and all details in the clip are not what "Rasta have always said".
To sum up, the meeting could be true, with some faults in the story but it can also be a lie. So it's up for speculation and to me the yogis meeting with Selassie I is totally inrelevant for I faith in HIM and I don't want to carry a speculative story or even less a lie to promote his Majesty being alive or Mighty or Worthy or Rightous or whatever. I and I know Jah Rastafari is all these things without these "proofs" so the video is not for I and I so I and I should not promote it. That's my 2 cents.
Jah Lives and reigns in all hearts
