Learn Languages

“Difference in language often creates misunderstanding, and can seriously affect the responsibilities that are being bestowed on you. Lack of knowledge of the national language will be a barrier for the education we have in mind for you. In addition to your national language, it is necessary for you to acquire knowledge of a foreign language, for in this way you will not only acquire the basic education, but also will be able to attain the University standard. It is imperative that you encourage your children in the acquisition of education. It is exceedingly difficult for you to fulfill your duties as members of Parliament through interpreters. We have opened the door to education, and it is your duty to use that education. If, through idleness, you do not avail yourselves of this opportunity, you will have condemned yourselves to ignorance.”

–  H.I.M. Haile Selassie I – Ogaden Speech, August 25 1956

The Foundation that Cannot Be Removed

Who is Rasta, it is evidently and without discussion established by that same name we bear, being full of history and meditation in itself. People who shall identify themselves with such a precious Name, without honoring the contents and meanings of it, shall be deemed as foolish minds of contradiction.
If Tafari Haile Selassie is not the actual HEAD (Ras) of your life, stop dealing with I&I faith trying to replace the foundation that cannot be removed, as it is written:
“According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon. For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.”
(I Corinthians 3, 10-11)
If you want to be a Rastaman, humbly and naturally, then you will confess that Tafari is your Head (Ras). Therefore, study His Word and Work to righteously ovastand His I-deas as the same ideas of your own Head, fulfilling the Scripture:
“For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? but we have the mind of Christ.” (I Corinthians 2, 16)
If you call yourself with His Name and you ignore His own teachings, you should be ashamed, as He Himself has said about Christ:
“how much should we be ashamed to call ourselves Christian people, and yet not to follow His footsteps ?”
(Message to the American People, 25th December 1937)

Rasta Burden is the Heaviest

Every man thinketh
his burden is the heaviest (heaviest).
Every man thinketh
his burden is the heaviest (heaviest).
Ya still mean it: Who feels it knows it, Lord;
Berhane Selassie, “Running Away”.
“Each generation thinks that the situation it faces is the most serious one, the most difficult among those which were faced by generations of the past. However this may be true today, I believe, when we say the task of this generation is burdensome, we mean it.”
Qedamawi Haile Selassie, Selected Speeches p. 153

Haile Selassie I - Testimonies

Uk Evening Express, 17th of January 1941

“HAILE SELASSIE – PROPHET

It was a lovely night, the skies were blue and the moon shone with rare brilliance. I had the unique honour of listening to the Emperor Haile Selassie in his modestly furnished reception room in the ancient city of Bath.

How prophetic of the Black Emperor that he should choose Bath for his residence in Britain – a city made famous by the Romans for their baths.

It was in June of the last year, before Benito Mussolini, the destroyer of Abyssinia’s freedom, declared war on Britain.

The world knew nothing about the plans and intentions of the Emperor when he told me that:

‘The hour of my country’s liberation is coming and you will see me soon leaving this country.

Don’t think that I was wasting my time here pushing my bicycle on the streets of Bath all these days. My faithful rasses all over the country were carefully knitting a net of revolutionary activity, keeping the people informed about my doings here and their duty to their motherland.

I have received definitive news from Ras Kassa that my people are awaiting my arrival in the country with expectancy.

I will not rest until the last Italian is driven away from my country. I live and I die for the liberation of Ethiopia. I am confident that in less than a year I will ride on my snow-white charger at the head of my people and enter Addis Ababa.’ “

Indro Montanelli – Italian Journalist and Fascist Soldier – 1982

Interview with Enzo Biagi, taken from “1935 e dintorni”, E.Biagi, Mondadori 1982.

I feel a great admiration for the negus, a real man without doubts, and the abyssinians were very lovable people, they had never been our enemies, even during the conflict, everywhere we were welcomed with feasts“. (…)

I remember Haile Selassie as a man full of dignity, I knew him when I returned there: suspicious, smart, very shrewd, surely a head fitting for his country, that never accepted our offers. As you know, we wanted to give him a huge appanage, to make him king of Rhodes or one island in the Aegean Sea, that was surely easier than going to London in exile, poor, for he didn’t own exported money. Instead, he was able to keep his rank, his style, and above all he had this high merit: once returned in Addis Abeba, he started to protect the Italian people, he never felt any rancour.

No More Naked

The Word made flesh to be abused as a Lamb. A completely naked body rested upon the cross, five nails carved it down, thousands of enemies hit His Flesh, publically exposed.

Behold the beauty and corporal integrity of the King Haile Selassie I, covered with long sleeves. Who had the privilege to see His holy body unveiled ? He is completely free and dignified, and nobody can touch Him disrespectfully, as Resurrected Christ.

I&I walk inna new glorious joy, and we see no more wounds on Jah Face.
