I have had this Rastafarian religion, and Rastafarianism website for over a year now. Can you believe its been that long. So I figured to make things run a little smoother, and give you a wider selection of information to read, I should put all of whats available on the front page, and not only that, provide a forum for you to ask question and find information and find other Rastas to get to know.
Rastafari religion??? Maybe not so much
Many people are unaware, that The Rastafari religion, is actually not a religion! Rastafari is a spirituality, or a “spiritual mindset.” We have no strict prayer times, or churches that we must attend. Each Rasta does what he or she feels is right from the heart. We are a loving people who try to follow the ways of “the Most High” (Jah Rastafari) And we do this willingly in our daily life. This is why Rastafari is known as a “way of life!” Not a religion.

Rastafarianism and why there is no “ism”
Many people call our spirituality “Rastafarianism” but a Rasta man or Rasta woman will tell you there is no “ism” in Rastafari, we just are who we are, and again this is not a religion. I have never heard a Jamaican person refer to my spiritual beliefs as “Rastafarianism“, which indicates to me that this was made up by someone who has no knowledge of Rastafari. We are Rastas, and our beliefs and way of life is called “Rastafari” no “ism” please.
5 Interesting Facts about Rastafari
What is a Rasta man?
Rastafarian Beliefs come from our hearts
Rastafarian beliefs are not something every rasta looked up in a book and made conscious decision to follow. Want to know the really cool thing about Rastafari beliefs. Every rasta pretty much has the same beliefs, like I said not educated on the subject. But, yet somehow we all believe the same thing. You could even find this out by meeting one Rasta, and asking him or her a question, and meet another rasta, and find that 9/10 you will get the same answer. Isnt that cool. All our beliefs are from what we feel inside, spiritually.
Rastafarians and love…
dating a jamaican rastaman, learn how to here! Most Rastafarians are single! unfortunately this is true. Why? you may be wondering to your self. The reason is most of us prefer to date someone who is “Rasta” just like our selves. These spiritual beliefs tend to be rare. Therefore most of us are single. Many Rastafari men will date a woman who is not Rastafari and then later ask the woman to “convert” to his spiritual beliefs. Is this fair? I am not the one to judge. But I know this happens a lot. Me on the other hand I refuse to do that. If the guy was not embracing Rastafari before I met him, then I am not interested. If he does it just because I want him to, then that would mean it’s not coming from the heart. Is it really meaningful then? Read about how to convert and become Rastafari here.

“Rastaman vibration” what is the Rastaman vibration?
The Rastaman vibration is something only a true Rastaman or true Rastawoman can feel. Well, that is not entirely true. We can feel it…and through or feelings, or words, or creations, we cause others to feel it. The rastaman vibration is something very special, spiritual, loving, beautiful and special. Its sort of like feeling amazing…and full of love. that is why Bob Marley wrote so many songs about love, and good positive vibes, because he wrote his songs from his own personal “rasta man vibration!” Jah Rastafari!
The Rastafari movement and what it means…
The Rastafari movement, I believe was a back to africa movement, that never happened. It was started by Marcus Garvey, who wanted Africans to reclaim their roots culture and land. Marcus Garvey was also a Jamaican, and also seen as a prophet to many Rastafarians. He once made a play in which he stated “look to africa, for the coming of a black king!” Then there was Emperor Hallie Selassie of Ethiopia. Right now for me I am not on a Rastafari movement, but I do seek to create awareness. So people can know the truth and have the right to make choices based on all information, instead of just “some” information.
“Rastafari jah” what does it mean?
When a Rasta man or Rasta woman says “Jah Rastafari” we are paying respect to the Most High. Because we know the Most High created everything. So, we must give our thanks and praises. Most Rasta pay respect to Emperor Hallie Selassie I the first. Rastafari Jah! You see…and just for the fact of that. I give thanks and praise. Jah Rastafari!!!!
bob Marley and his Rastafari songs of togetherness and love
Bob Marley is an example of what it means to be a true Rasta man. He wore dreadlocks and he free formed them. The work he did, was all about Rastafari love and togetherness. He encourage people of color to unite. He sang songs of universal and Romantic love. Rastafari is about love, it’s about freedom, it’s about the almighty Rastafari Jah. Rastafari has always been and will always be. Just like mr Bob Marley him self.
Dreadlocks and Rastafari sexiness
I believe Dreadlocks are a huge part of Rastafari sexiness. I was afraid that once I showed my locks people were going to look at me weird. In actuality, since I started showing my dreadlocks out in public, I feel more beautiful and more accepted by others. Bob Marley was a beautiful man, but his dreadlocks made him that much more appealing I am sure. When I see a man with locks, I definitely check him out.

why does jamaica make so many rasta man?
What is it about the island of Jamaica giving birth to so many Rasta man? Hmmm I don’t know the answer, but I feel it has something to do with the deep Christian faith among the people of this great island, and the reggae music. Bob Marley who was a super star rasta reggae singer, was born and raised in Jamaica, and never left. I am very proud of my Jamaican roots. Living in Jamaica is very inspirational on many levels, and Jah is one of the biggest influences over the people. I give thanks.
