one bra told me once. i think it was bro jahphet anbassa natty I.
he told bout that mistake, when someone didn't translate it correctly or sthg like this.



so what bout that teferi-thing ?

why do lots of people say "tafari" when they mean "creatah", due it is "teferi" that means "creatah". is it a translation mistake or what ? if "tafari" isn't what some think, what is HIS name then ?
is his name still ras tAfAri, or is it ras tEfEri ?

I call HIM RasTafarI, but I know that some call HIM Teferi.

The most important thing is who you are referring to when you call the name, and how you see RasTafarI.

Sistren,

Bless. It is Ark I, not Ark 1.

I name means that RasTafarI people are the Ark. So I and I hold the commandments within. And Jah is over and within I and I.

if I wanna talk about selassie I, do I (have to ?)say "ras tAfAri" or "ras tEfEri" ?
and why ?

I think it's up to I how to call HIM (tafari or teferi), isn't it ?
what does the I say bout that, Ark I and Bra Jahphet Anbassah Natty I ?

what does your name mean Ark I ? I once heard of that, that the people who hold the commandments are the Ark of Jah RasTafarI.
is this right ?

so if I want to say Ras "creatah", I have to say TeferI. and if I want to say Ras "to be feared", I have to say TafarI. right ? or wrong ?



what about this passage in the bible:

"I am the Alpha and the Omega, says god, the lord, who is and who was and who comes, the HEAD over the whole CREATION"

(dunno if head is the right word, but it says that he is the "lord/duke/head" -> the Most High)

Ras -> Head
TeferI -> Creation/Creator

So Selassie's real name is Ras TeferI, and this means that he is the head/duke/most-high (ras) over/above the Creation (teferI).
but how come them say tAfAri (with the letter "a")?
i dunno why but that confuses I........

so if them say "Ras TafarI means Head over the Creation" this is wrong, isn't it ?






{ is it "OVER the creation" or "ABOVE the creation" ? }

No need to be sorry Ras Gyal, it is not a big deal. I was just showing the I about I name.

Yes I , Bredda Alex that is the meaning of I name. Just as the Ark of the covenant holds the commandments within and the spirit of Jah within and above. This is how I sight RasTafarI people.

The One to be feared is the Creator. So to I the two names refer to the same. I don't know for sure which name is Haile Selassie I's name. I think it is TafarI, but some say TeferI.

I have seen writing from an Ethiopian with the name Teferi, that refers to Selassie I as TafarI. And I have also seen other writing by Ethiopians that refer to different people, some with the name Teferi. But when they mention Haile Selassie I, they say TafarI.
