Greetings

The fist to fist is not just a Rasta way of greeting! :D. most west indian people greet people with this gesture,

For InI it is a way of saying respect


blessed

Clear up confusion?

Greetings in the Name of H.I.M Jah RasTafari.
Just a few Rasta Greetings

RASTAFARI= The most forthright acknowledgsment/greeting by RasTafari expressed on meeting and departure
BLESSED/BLESSINGS=[Baraka] same meaning
Greetings= Same meaning
Guidance=Departing  with  wishes for RasTafari.Blessed Guidance
Hail/Haile=Acknowledging some one in the Name of RasTafari
HAILE I=A forthright RasTafari  acknowledgement or Greeting
IRIE/IRIE I= Uplifting one's spirit on meeting and departing also means "nice"

InI hope this is useful
Love and Raspect

Many of the rasta that I associate with usually put their right hand across their chest and make a slight bow of the head when greeting and leaving each other.
