MUST SEE TO BELIEVE ... MUST BELIEVE TO KNOW
And Yes, His Majesty is Eternal ... Sellassie I dwells within I n I n I ... but his physical body was not eternal, so I say "His Majesty KNEW who He was" when He was trodding this Earth in His physical body.
"At His Majesty's request, I translated (and annotated) this work into English...
In the twenty three years, since Haile Sellassie's removal from power, an entire generation of Ethiopians, both inside and outside the country, has grown up without much knowledge, if any, of the last reigning King. That generation, and even their elders, should be reminded of the rich and proud legacy of Ethiopia's progress under Haile Sellassie. Whatever problems may have occured during those fifty eight years of rule, they will yet be remembered and assessed by future historians against the background of the calamities that were to follow.
I am gratified that this new edition of My Life and Ethiopia's Progress should see the light of day thanks to the endeavors of a Rastafarian establishment representing people who have done much to keep Haile Sellassie's memory alive and have also so devotedly looked after his grandson."
