The Spirit of Bongo Tarney departed from his structure on the 26th of March, when he breathe his last breath of Air. His Spirit is now in the atmosphere of spirits, but his remains was returned to Mother Earth on Sunday the 11th of April, at his yard where he lived in Portland Cottage, May Pen, Jamaica.
On Saturday there was a great Nyabinghi Assemble in Tribute to him and they return his remains to the earth, the next day Sunday. His remains was wrapped in the Red, Gold and Green, which is our own liberation Emblem. I was not there but from information I recieved it is more than likely, that Ras Ivi and other Rastafari Iyagels administered, the Iyavine service before his remains was place into the ground.
I have been writing and talking about these matters for a while, that we must be prapare for these situations as Rastafari people, since these situations are bound to be manifested from time to time, as we live from day to day. Life for each of us is just a journey which we must travel, but none of us know, when each of us journey will end. When our work is finished we have to move on.The journey of life continues. Take the best care of yourselves and your people.
Again I send many oceans of blessings and self determination to African people everywhere.
ONE BLACK HEART ONE BLACK LOVE.
Bab Ras Marcus.
