The Rastafari Movement

Parent Category: Religion & Spirituality
The Rastafari movement is a spiritual ideology. Its main origins were in Jamaica and Ethiopia. Rastafari recognizes elements of Christianity and Judaism, although they have their own sets of beliefs as well. The use of marijuana for spiritual reasons is also accepted. Followers of the Rastafari movement often consider their beliefs less of a religion, and more of a way of life.
Even though the Rastafari movement claim that their god named Jahis one, they actually believe he is triune, three in one. They alsobelieve that the Emperor of Ethiopia , Selassie was Jah incarnate.
Rastafari is an Abrahamic belief which developed in Jamaica inthe 1930s, following the coronation of Haile Selassie I as Emperorof Ethiopia in 1930. Its adherents worship him in much the same wayas Jesus in his Second Advent, or as God the Son.

From my knowledge, most Rastafarian people wear their hair in dreadlocks. This is when the hair is knotted and rolled in between thepalms until it creates one long tendril.

Mmmm ... The "think of Haile Selassie as a God" , interpretation ofyour question , is a rather debatable conjecture.

They believe that life should be stress-less and free. They feel that Jah will provide them with everything they need in life. They feel that meat means death and view dreadlocks as a journey and is a spiritual revenge against Babylon.

First off. It is against the rastafarian belief to consume alcohol, take drugs, or insert anything into your body that wasn't made by god. People associate rastafarians with marijuana because of the sterotype given by bob marley and many reggae songs. Secondly rastafarianism is a religion not a type...
They do not base their religion of of herbs and weed. this is a part of it, and is considered the sacred herb put on earth by Jah for use by man. Drinking is majorly against the religion boundries. Also, a chapter a day is the Rasta way (King James Bible).
The rastafarian movement started in the 1930's, and while I haven't been able to find a single name responsible for its creation, Ethiopian emperor Haile Selassie I was prominent as a messianic figure.

From what I have read Rastafarians follow the Old Testament (Book of Genesis) description of how the world was made.
Yes. Rastafarian, Judaism and Christianity are monotheistic religions. They differ only in their religious doctrines and practices.
The God worship by the Rastas, Jewish and Christians differ in their names. The Rastas worship a singular God whom they call 'JAH', the Jewish also worship a singular God whom they call 'YAHWEH' and the Roman Catholic Christians also worship a singular God whom they call 'YAHVE'. Nevertheless, all...
Though there are probably white people in the world who call themselves "Rastafarian", it is EXTREMELY likely that no authentic Rastafarian practitioners would ever accept a white-skinned person as a "true" Rastafarian.

Rastafarian's choose not to cut their hair for they belive that it will weaken them. Also, they belive it's a way to be closer to Jah. Growing dreadlocks is a spiritual journey for Rasta, and they believe that it teaches patience.
They have dreadlocks and wear them in a green red and yellow coloured hat as these are the colour of the rastafarian flag. They are mainly black, and have a sort of jamaican, reggae look.

Anything other than hash.
They don't, they refrain from tobacco and smoke marijuana.
That's a very interesting question. It is actually the official recognized religion in Australia! Anyone who disputes Rasta will be burned on the hemp.
They call Him "Jah". They believe that Jah Is Father, Son (Jesus Christ) Haile Selassie, and the Holy Spirit.

From 1966/67 to 1981. He converted to the Christian Ethiopian Orthodox Church some months before he died by cancer, but some Rastafarian authorities don't accept this fact, which has been confirmed by his sons and his backup singer Judy Mowatt (who converted 15 years later).
