Greetings Brothers And Sisters

I Am From India and i wanted to know if i could be a Rastaman

I Follow Ital Diet Very Very Strictly
I Follow All The Principels Of Rastafari i only do not have Dread Locks and i do not smoke weed

Do I Need To Have Dreadlocks to be Rastafarian ?
Do I Have To Smoke Weed to To Be Rastafarian?

India was oppressed by White People as well the British Controlled Our Country for 200 Years

The British Called Us Indians Brown Dogs
Recently i faced Racism when i traveled to the Gulf for a vacation
A White man i think european called Me A Brown Chocolate
It was shocking to me because it was the first time i faced such a thing and i faced racism for the first time by a white man who must be just living there for work i was in shock i did not tell him anything I Just Walked Away looked up and said Jah Forgive that man.

Bless up

India blessed with a plethora of indigenous cultures and forms of spirituality. Now you are no longer oppressed by the British, and you know who your are as a people / your identity. Why, if i may ask, now choose an African culture and identity in Rastafari for your liberation?

Do what the I feel is right for the I

My Brother Garveys Africra

I Choose An African Culture And Identity Such as Rastafari because i Am Very Attached to Africa i feel a strong connection to Ethopia as well and i love the principels of Rastafari i also feel more comfortable with a Spiritual Movement Such as Rastafari also because many of its followers are of Colour Just Like How i am coloured.My Brother you are blessed with everything in Africa i hope that one day i can Visit Africa and admire all Of Africas Beauty And i would Love To Visit Ethopia as That Is Zion.

My Brother Can You Please Tell Me If I Can Be A Rastafarian Or Not ?
Do I Have To Grow Dreadlocks And Smoke Weed To Be Rastafari ?

The two things you mention do not make anyone a Rasta or not a Rasta.

What's interesting is the idea that 'identity' is something which can be chosen

Il let others give their thoughts.....

theres only a thin line between you identity and your persona.

the term person describes a mask to me. a result of all the social roles you HAVE to play in society. but your identity is what you have left when all the immitations and pleasing behaviours aren't used.

i think every one is a little afraid of his own identity. that's why i don't believe in original sin the way the church does. we all have to experience things and learn from it because we have to find it out on our own to follow our very own interests. during my life there were phases when i thought an aweful lot about everything i'd say and that i want to leave people with a certain impression of me or i just wanted to be like someone whos performance i've watched.

but once we are brave enough to reveal our true self you will get true responses and find the way you wanted to go from the start.
