Greetings + love Bro Mars
In the abode of JAH are many houses..
The I is not the first one to use this word NazIr as an identification of the Iself in RasTafarI.
The word Nazir means a separated one, yes I think monk is a good modern word to describe it. The Nazarite vow specifically is designed to create NazIr, and you probably already know that RasTafarI usually integrate some or all of these old testament commandments from the Nazarite vow, such as abstaining from wine and not cutting hair. So to I there is a clear Innection between NazIr Livity and RastafarI Livity. To call the Iself and the group who adhere to the livity of separation from babylon "NazIr" is an accurate statement.
Mars the I wasnt on the site yet at this time, but there was an Idren who came here regularly for a while, Ras NazIr. The I can look up his reasonings, he has a lot of Iducation to share... Wonder where he went... Ras Nazir we miss the I!
Keep up the search and passion for more purity in the I livity.. This path of purification will always lead the I in the right way.
JAH Love All
