Origin of the Rastafari Movement ..

in #reggaesteemlast year (edited)

Good afternoon appreciated Reggaestemers happy Sunday here in Venezuela enjoying a slightly rainy and pleasant climate today I am inspired to write about the Rastrafari philosophy since this goes beyond a fashion driven by the reagge music, whose main exponent was Bob Marley, the Rastafarianism It is a cult tradition with well-defined beliefs.

Buenas tardes apreciados Reggaestemers feliz domingo aqui en venezuela disfrutando de un clima un poco lluvioso y agradable hoy me inspira escribir sobre la filosofía Rastrafari ya que esta va mas alla de una moda impulsada por el reagge music, cuyo principal exponente fue Bob Marley, el rastafarismo es toda una tradición de culto con creencias bien definidas.

His Father knew that the situation in his country deserved many changes, therefore, he tried to educate his son as an object of change in his country and that it was he who prevented them from falling under oppression before the imperialist powers.

Su Padre , sabía que la situación de su país merecía muchos cambios, por ello, procuró educar a su hijo como un objeto de cambio de su país y que fuera él quien evitara que cayeran bajo opresion ante las potencias imperialistas.

This man was cultivated in many areas including the religious, he had the full conviction that the spiritual aspect and the material aspect that both go hand in hand must be developed together.

este hombre se culturizo en muchas areas incluyendo la religiosa, tenia la plena conviccion de que se debe desarrollar juntos el aspecto espiritual y el aspecto material que ambos van de la mano..

Tafari was crowned emperor under the denomination of Haile Selassie I. When Italy invaded Ethiopia in 1935. He stood in front of the resistance against the invaders, due to the constant conflicts in 1936 he was forced to disappear and has been in exile for a weather

Tafari se coronó emperador bajo la denominación de Haile Selassie I. Cuando Italia invadió Etiopía en 1935. se situó al frente de la resistencia contra los invasores, debido a los constantes conflictos en 1936 se vio obligado a desaparecer y ha estar en el exilio por un tiempo.

Haile regained the throne in 1941, when British troops with the help of the Ethiopian resistance took Addis Ababa (the capital of Ethiopia). His government continued until 1974, at which time the lack and lack of political evolution would result in a coup d'etat. Haile Selassie would be arrested at his own home until his death was announced in 1975. The causes have not yet been clarified. although Selassie was really just a devout Christian. For the Rasta movement this man is the Messiah for them and still lives
His remains since 2000 rest in the Trinity Cathedral of Addis.

Haile recuperó el trono en 1941, cuando tropas Británicas con la ayuda de la resistencia etíope tomaron Addis Abeba( la capital de Etiopía). Su gobierno continuó hasta 1974, momento en el que las carencias y la falta de evolucion politica traeria como consecuencia un golpe de estado . Haile Selassie pasaría a ser arrestado en su propio domicilio hasta que en 1975 se anunciara su muerte. Las causas aún no sido aclaradas. aunque Selassie en realidad solo fuera un cristiano devoto. Para el movimiento Rasta este hombre es el Mesias para ellos y aun vive
sus restos desde el año 2000 descansan en la Catedral de la Trinidad de Addis.

Rasta culture has the belief that Jah is the abbreviated form of the name of God Yahweh in the Hebrew scriptures, according to his theory God has had three incarnations: Melchizedek, Jesus Christ, and finally Haile Selassie I being considered his savior.

la cultura rastas tiene la creencia de que Jah, es la forma abreviada del nombre de Dios Yahveh en las escrituras hebreas, segun su teoria Dios ha tenido tres encarnaciones: Melquisedec, Jesucristo, y finalmente Haile Selassie I siendo considerado este su salvador.

All this theory starts from a prophecy made by: Marcus Garvey that expresses the following:
"Look at Africa, where a black king will be crowned, because the day of liberation is approaching."
This is the prophecy that started it all

Garvey was a Jamaican activist who fought for political and social change on the island that had long been involved in slavery.

Toda esta teoria parte de una profecia realizada por: Marcus Garvey que expresa lo siguiente:
"Miren a África, donde se coronará un rey negro, porque el día de la liberación se acerca".
Esta es la profecía que lo empezó todo

Garvey era un activista jamaicano que luchó por el cambio político y social en la isla que habia sido envuelta durante mucho tiempo por la esclavitud..

It is not entirely clear if the "black king" Garvey was referring to was a real person. or maybe it was a symbolic figure.

But when news of the coronation of Haile Selassie in 1930 in Jamaica spread, many of Garvey's followers made an association that seemed logical to them.

Ras Tafari was the king, so liberation day was near. This meant that they should prepare for an exodus to Africa.

No está totalmente claro si el "rey negro" al que se refería Garvey era una persona real. o tal vez fuera una figura simbólica.

Pero cuando corrio la noticia de la coronación de Haile Selassie en 1930 en Jamaica, muchos de los seguidores de Garvey hicieron una asociación que a ellos les parecía lógica.

Ras Tafari era el rey, así que el día de la liberación estaba cerca. Esto significaba que ellos debían prepararse para un éxodo a África.

On April 21, 1966, 36 years after his coronation, he visited Jamaica, noting that the enthusiasm of the Rastafarians was still intact, as he finally knows the Rastafari Movement. At the time of his arrival he was received as a god.
At that time there was a new generation of Rastafarians, many of whom still retained the idea of ​​that exodus to Africa.

Selassie felt overwhelmed by the euphoric reception, and did nothing to disperse beliefs about his divine status.

At this time, Garvey had already died, and his criticisms of Selassie for leaving the country in times of war had been forgotten in Jamaica.
Among the crowd that showed up to honor their redeemer was the wife of a 21-year-old Jamaican musician, who had just formed a band called The Wailers.
His name was Robert Nesta Marley.

el 21 de abril de 1966, 36 años después de su coronación,visita Jamaica notando que el entusiasmo de los rastafaris seguía intacto.es asi como conoce por fin el Movimiento Rastafari. En el momento de su arribo fue recibido como un dios.
Había ya por aquel entonces una nueva generación de rastafaris, muchos de los cuales todavía conservaban la idea de ese éxodo hacia África.

Selassie se sintió abrumado por el eufórico recibimiento, y no hizo nada para dispersar las creencias sobre su estatus divino.

En este momento, Garvey ya había muerto, y sus críticas a Selassie por salir del país en tiempos de guerra se habían olvidado en Jamaica.
Entre la multitud que se presentó a honrar a su redentor estaba la esposa de un músico jamaicano de 21 años, que acababa de formar una banda llamada The Wailers.
Su nombre era Robert Nesta Marley.

Bob Marley was considered the most influential rastafarian in history.
He never identified himself as a prophet, although his songs had this tone his followers treated him as a leader although he never proclaimed himself as such.
Black youth began to imitate Marley. They wore their hair and used what they called and wore clothes in the colors of the Ethiopian flag: green, yellow, red, and usually some black.

many began to be attracted to a different theology that incorporated a criticism or political protest.

Bob Marley fue considerado el rastafari más influyente de la historia.
Él nunca se identifico asi mismo como profeta, aunque sus canciones tenían este tono sus seguidores lo trataron como lider aunque el nunca se proclamo como tal.
la juventud de raza negra comenzo a imitar a Marley llevaban el pelo como el y vestían ropa con colores de la bandera etíope: verde, amarillo, rojo, y usualmente algo de negro.

muchos se comenzaron a verse atraídos por una teología diferente que incorporaba una crítica o protesta política.

In conclusion the rastrafari movement is based on a diversity of Beliefs and strengthened in many
ideological and philosophical currents.
A noteworthy fact that I could notice is that all this belief originates from a prophecy that is fulfilled in a certain way, there is a vision that freedom is near because Selassie is their savior, and that they could thus get out of poverty and emigrate to Africa, in fact, Selassie donated 200 hectares of land to members of the Rastafarian movement and settlers from Jamaica and other parts of the Caribbean so they could settle in Africa. The community still exists today.
When Tafari dies, he creates great shock in his tribe so to speak, and many interpretations arose as a result, Selassie's bodily death was only a sign that Jah was not only a human being, but also a spirit.

Well Dear friends until a new opportunity ..

En conclusion el movimiento rastrafari esta basado en una diversidad de Creencias y fortalecido en muchas
corrientes ideologias y filosoficas.
un hecho resaltante que pude notar es que toda esta creencia se origina por una profecia que de cierta manera se cumple, se tiene la vision de que la libertad esta cerca porque Selassie es su salvador , y que asi podrian salir de la pobreza y emigrar a Africa, de hecho Selassie donó 200 hectáreas de tierra a miembros del movimiento rastafari y colonos de Jamaica y otras partes del Caribe para que pudieran establecerse en África. La comunidad todavía existe hoy en día.
Cuando Tafari fallece crea gran conmocion en su tribu por asi decirlo y surgieron muchas interpretaciones a raiz de ello, la muerte corporal de Selassie era solo una señal de que Jah no era solo un ser humano, sino también un espíritu.

Bueno Queridos amigos hasta una nueva oportunidad..

Good that you mentioned this:
"...At this time, Garvey had already died, and his criticisms of Selassie for leaving the country in times of war had been forgotten in Jamaica.."
And this is probably it:
"It is not entirely clear if the "black king" Garvey was referring to was a real person. or maybe it was a symbolic figure."
Garvey called Selassie " a cowardish lion" for fleeing to London! in the war against Italy...King of all Kings???
Ras Tafari means Natural Man... i love to live like that, but prophecies
that can not be questioned are always a trap.... like most religions...
Bless up
Greetings

What a cool and informative post, @mariluna! Many thanks for sharing.

I'll give you a little suggestion, so you can make your posts look visually better:

  • If you add "---" in a single line, separated by two blank lines, it will create a nice separator like this:

If you separate the English and Spanish paragraphs like that, it will be much easier for your readers to absorb the information. Here's another one:
