ganjah

is Sanskrit gaNa + jah

gaNa means host

 
Consider Christianity's symbolic communion, known as the "Host":
 
"Sacramental bread (Hostia),
sometimes called the body of Christ, altar bread,
the host,
the Lamb or simply Communion bread,
is the bread which is used in the Christian ritual of the Eucharist."
 
This Host is not the body and blood of Jesus.
"the sacramental bread symbolizes the Resurrected Christ"
 
 
 

Rasta / jah people commune via jahshuah's (jesus') yoke;

the host of jah:

Ganjah

(Ganja)

the gaNa (host) of jah.

Ganjah.
 
Overstand:  The host of jah is the perfume of jah which assembles (gathers) the body of followers (family) of jah who are called jah's flock.
 
Wanna see it in the bible?
 
And ye my flock,
the flock of my pasture,
are men, and I am your God,
saith jah.
(Ezekiel 34:31)
 
In which pasture does the body of jah flock?
Psalm 80:1-4 - Jah People Version
1
To the chief musician; The flower (Cannabis) of assemblage who's psalm gathers the family by expanding perception.  The hand (Cannabis; Isaiah 66:14) which governs Israel guides each individual from within, reflexively (via meditation; internal guidance) thus leading the flock with a sigh (inhale-exhale) to dwell between the cherubims (enter communion) in order to shine. [JPV]
2
Before Ephraim and Benjamin and Manasseh stir up thy strength, and come and save us.
3
Turn us back, Jah, before your face that we may shine and be saved. [JPV]
4
Jah, god of the host (Cannabis) who's smoke is the prayer of the people. [JPV]
The pasture who's flower expands perception via it's smoke; the specific, literal prayer of jah people is specifically and precicely where we flock.
 
Ganjah is the Host of jah which is grown in the pasture of jah by and for the flock of jah.
 
 
Ganja is prayer and communion???  How does that work?
 
Real, real simple man... just like this:
 
Folks of all types gather together to enjoy a communal smoke... greeting... parting... beginning... ending... initiating whatever... and then proceed with their activities.  Having been lead first with a sigh - a Ganjah sigh - as the biblical psalm articulates they are now peaceful and shining.  The flock has just prayed (offered Ganjah) together, perhaps with intention, and with zero need for any perceived religious trappings other than a communal pipe (chalice).  Now, with expanded perception each individual is guided from within and they relate with one another in new ways.  They tend to stop competing and start cooperating.  They discuss anything and everything... deeply... passionately.  They agree and debate and eat snacks instead of each other.  They find solutions from within and actually live in peace.
 
That's how it works.
 
 
If Ganjah is the Host of jah, then what is the Eucharist?
 
The literal Eucharist is the Host of jah.  Eucharist is eu + charis, meaning good grace.  Charis is the New Testament Greek word translated "grace" of God.  It is cognate (equivalent meaning) to Sanskrit charas which is Cannabis resin.  Cannabis is and inspires good grace, just like in the example above.  Cannabis is the good grace ("eucharist") of jah.
 
 
 
And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.  (John 8:32, KJV)
 
 
Gather in the pasture, Ganjah family...  Be a good host.  Love one another and live in peace.
