no, one doesn't need to take the Nazarite vow to become Rasta. one should think deeply about it before you take the vow because it takes a lot of discipline and commitment. first get an overstanding of the Bible by reading it once a day (if you can fit it in your schedule) cover to cover then once you overstand the scriptures you may be ready to take the vow. but you don't have to take it at all if you don't want to.
I haven't taken it yet but maybe some day in the future I'll consider it.
hope that helped..

oh yea, what do you mean by option 1 option 2 option 3 ?
bless.

when i post a poll it says i have to fill out at least two options before i post it and then it give me a space where i have to fill in answer or else i cant post.  .  .   im not sure if that helped you but thank you very much for your explaination on the vow because i tried to take it and i was not thinking about the commitment it takes and i rushed into it and failed.  .  .   it truely takes commitment to fullfill it and i must give it though before i truelly overstand the vow and what it is to be rasta

I am wondering now if since I dont need to fullfill the vow (although i plan on doing so when i have a better overstanding) to become rasta how is that you become rasta I have read some other posts saying you must begin by researching into it and i have but there is still much more to learn.  .  .   however I am just wondering because I know for Catholics they are baptised into thier faith and I was wondering is there some Baptising or something for the Rasta Movment because i dont feel trully part of it for some reason by just saying oh today is the day that I have become Rasta.   Hopefully some one has some advice because I feel lost and I really do want to become apart of the Rasta Movement because it brings such happiness to me and during a bad day I think about it and it really makes the day much brighter.

sorry bro i don't know much about the polls because i have never had one before..


that is alot like me when i first started to get into rasta. you cant just go and wake up one day and be rasta. it took me about a year before I felt that i could call my self a Ras. just talk to some of us on here, don't be afraid to ask any questions. i learned so fast just by talking to people on here. books can teach you some basics about RasTafari but they don't really go that deep. alot of the answers come from the heart. you know?

hope that helped.

oh yea and click on the Rasta chat section and look for "rasta school"
it has TUNS of very good info.
bless up.

Ites Up One Love.
Iman actually don't know any ras (man and woman) who has taken the nazirite/nazarite vow. To take the vow, one must talk to a rabbi, or a priest. It is a RELIGIOUS vow - even though many in here does not like the word religion. The most ras Iman know, are like pseudo-nazirites, who live out some parts of the vow, but not it all. Iman have no problem with that, as long as they don't call them self "nazirite" - because every part of the vow, is making I&I purer and cleaner. And also - Iman nah sight, how one cannot live up the 613 (jewish) laws and still call himself a nazirite. The nazirite-vow is a jewish vow, and is a part of the 613 laws. In the ancient days, if we read the scriptures, there were pretty many nazirites in the tribes of Israel.

So just relax, study your law - cannot be nazirite and still eat pork, lie and cheat on your wife.

Iman hope the I - you - overstand I advice and read the scriptures carefully.

Blessings & Ites

I ELIJAH I

Dealing with Rasta Irit and Dealing with Rasta livity is not the same thing as being Rasta. One must undergo a complete transfiguration to literally be Rasta. Now alot of ones who deal with Rasta livity and Irit are on their way to becoming Rasta. But only few of dem actually are in a permenant sense.  And without this proper perspective so that you not claiming to "be rasta" after the first step when you still have 10,000 miles to trod is what keep the fold genuine and the crown shining.

I believe-

What I have discerned from my reading of scripture-

Is that to be a Nazarite, to dedicate oneself to Yah in a personal inward way as well as by displaying the outward physical signs, is a personal choice between a person and God.

It may be that in the Old Testament the vow was to be administered by a Rabbi...I don't remember an example that shows that and I do not have my scripture with me-

But the purpose of Jesus, the Heavenly Divine Son, is that we no longer have need, real or legislated, of a human intercessor.

If you choose to make a vow make it.

But if you make a vow to God keep it!

How? Well I tink first u haffi trus JAH guidance and trod wit courage. JAH guide people with signs and the bible and ting. I and I must trus we own intuition, Irit, and heart as well seen? And complete transiguration is when those things and your will become JAH mind/irit/heart and will.
Have you ever heard that JAH is a Fiyah? Transfiguration is when we give ourselves totally to that Fiyah and are consumed and so become the Fiyah, Only when you jump from the building do you realize you can fly.  (don't jump from a building people)
