A RASTA_LOJ Proposal

for Ethiopian Script & Amharic Literacy!


Rasta_LOJ Working Group(s)

The efforts that LOJ proposal embodies were initiated in 1991 with the revelations Kshate Brhan (Phenomenonof the H.I.M. BIBLE, otherwise known as "The Book of the Seven Seals", the Authorized 1961 Amharic Bible of His Imperial Majesty, Qedamawi HAILE SELLASSIE (I) to Our Bredren, Ras Iadonis Tefferi, aka Hayle-Yesus Sellassie. Refer to: http://oocities.com/yadmim/janhoibibleorder.html. Please also check our Etio-Rasta and Amharasta Cultural Items at: http://oocities.com/yadmim/yadmim.htmlMore "interactive" and basic efforts are "in-progress" as you read this. Order a free! sample copy of our initial "HAHU INNA BINGHI" attempt to combine Rasta "Nyahbinghi" heart-beat with the "chanting of the Hahu's". In subsequent learning CDs and interactive tools we will further seek to bring to light and to the ear the Classical "Amarigna" (Amhara-G'Iz or 'old Amharic') of the Neguse Negestu/Ngushe Negeshu i.e. "the King of Kings". More focus, effort and attention will be given to bringing to light the Mezmure Daweet (Psalms of David) based on H.I.M. BIBLE in plain, Ethiopian Chant and "amharasta-binghi" (rasta churchical) forms so that the once "lost" and NOW FOUND SHEEP - may get to know, live and prosper in their inheritance from the Father and the Son. This, our "mission" is in fulfillment of Zephaniah 3:9-10 and Revelations 5 Verse 5, to name a few.

The major objective of the LOJ proposal working group has been to follow up previous efforts and resolve lingering issues of the Rastafari and Ethiopian diasporas, respectively. We need a Unicode Standard for Ethiopian Script, Ethiopic Education and Etio-Rasta peoples everywhere.
