Because not all of us need biblical reference to Sight Truth. Because a wise one transcends the tenets of blind faith towards a path of in-light-nment of Iniversal Truths.
RASTA FARI” is known loooong before Judeo-Christianity when BLACK ANU people of Nile Civilizations whose School of On (ANNU) taught the “PATH OF THE ATEN,” and graduated a “SUN PEOPLE”
Kemet/Kush and Rastafari goes hand and hand. The name Rastafari was taken from the school of Annu in Kemet. Rastau(which was it's Kemetic spelling) meant knowledge of the known universe.
Ras” means “Head” and “Tafari” means “creator”. This head creator was know in Kemet(ancient Egypt) as Ptah, who synonymous with Ausar(Asr-Osiris), The “Risen soul”, or awakened one. Ptah was known as the father of the Gods, the “head creator”. In the Egyptian Book of coming forth, Ausar is known as “King of Kings, Lord of Lords, lord of RastAU”.
You see in ancient Kemet men were known as SAKURA (MEANING SONS OF GOD). Did not Christ say he was the son of God?
While some may suggest that the kushite/Kemetic word "Rasta(u)" has no connection to Haile Selassie, I would humbly say that they are undeniable.
Do we not all agree and even chant that Rasta has been here "from the time the foundations of Creation were laid"?. This would naturally and logically be before the birth of HIM and/or His coronation. So when InI bring forth ancient texts that speak of not only the literal WORD "Rasta" but also the esoteric, cosmological principles and vibrations found therein, it should be overstood as such.
