CONCERNING THE SANCTIFICATION OF CHILDREN
After a period of three months the Nyahbinghi son is able to attend his first issemble to be offered up to the Most High JAH Rastafari. The Nyahbinghi daughter is brought in during or after the first four months of infancy.
Both Mother and child should attend the issemble as at this time parents vow to grow their children in the Order of JAH Rastafari.
The Nyahbinghi Priests as well as the congregation offer prayers and chants for the eternal guidance of the children and at this time ”JAH Mother and Father” are chosen to help along with the upbringing of the children.
If, after the sanctification of such children, parents should cut their locks then they would have broken the Oath of Sanctification and shall answer to the Most High.
Rastafari sons and daughters must not grow their children as non-Rastafarians as they will be held guilty of such wrong doing. If after 18 years or when the child leaves the family home, he/she departs from this covenant, then the judgement will not rest with the parents but upon his or her won shoulders.
