I have recently discovered Bob Marley. I am interested in Rastafarian beliefs. Would any one here happen to know about it or even practice them? I have read a little bit about it and i think its really interesting. just curious if any one knows anything about it.

This might help. I don't really practice or subscribe to all the beliefs but I think it's a beautiful religion.

Christopher,

I know next to nothing about it, but it's always good to find out about how another religion works and what its members believe. I think that helps us to be more understanding of beliefs and ideas that we ourselves don't hold.

Much love,
Larry

I shot the sheriff, but I did not shoot the deputy!

I like the idea of Jah manifesting in the triumphs over the challenges people face. I guess I also like the spirituality of ganja, but that's just me. \:\)

At the time that my avatar photo was taken I was a daily pot smoker, drinker, and hard drug user. The photo is from 30 years ago. I quit smoking the ganja in 1991, the crack in 1999.

Plus I once saw Toots and the Maytals get booed off of the stage in an 80,000 seat venue two songs after the crowd had enjoyed their song "Legalize It" in 1975. Imagine that happening?

They probably still have to see their therapists!!!
