The Nyahbinghi Man
The Nyahbinghi Man must abide by the laws
of His Imperial Majesty.
It is also the sole duty of every Nyahbinghi
Man to uphold the livity of Emperor Haile Selassie I. Thus,
every Nyahbinghi Man must see to it that love and harmony
be maintained at every Nyahbinghi gathering including House
During I-semble, the Nyahbinghi
man is permitted to administrate around the altar or to prophecy
before the congregation on His Imperial Majesty Emperor Haile
Selassie I, black history and other aspects of Rastafari Ivine
livety. Nyahbinghi man must be skilled on the drums. He should
be attired in modest and proper apparel and must uncover his
head during an I-semble.
The Binghi man is expected
to give his strength towards administering the Theocratic
Government of Emperor Haile Selassie I. He may contribute
in the governmental admininstration whereever he is capable
of giving strength as seen fit by the House. He should also
strive to improve his livity and skills/education so that
he may be of greater strength to the administration of the
Theocracy of Emperor Haile Selassie I.
He should abide with one queen as perfect
example set by His Imperial Majesty, Emperor Haile Selassie
I. He must be loyal to his queen at all times. If there is
a misunderstanding between him and his queen, the matter should
be brought before the Priest or the Council of Elders who
will deal with the matter privately and constructively.
It is the duty of every Nyahbinghi Man to
properly maintain his children and raise them in the order
of righteousness. It is wrong for a Nyahbinghi man to trim
and comb his children. This is an abomination.
The Nyahbinghi man must abstain from whoredom,
adultery, fornication and all sinful acts that are an abomination
to the Most High. He should keep his temple clean, refraining
from use of flesh, drugs, alcohol and all harmful articles
of food that are forbidden. The Nyahbinghi man is nonviolent,
non-abusive and non- partisan. He must also be free from all
criminal or corrupted activities as a true son of JAH Rastafari.
