Rastafari is the worship of a singular God called Jah, originating from an increased consciousness and awareness of Africa and its political situation. The Rastafari spiritual and political movement originated in 1930’s Jamaica, weaved tightly around
African pride and culture.
Jamaican Rastafari, a minority belief system sometimes classified as Ethiopian Orthodox Christianity, is derived from wider Jamaican Christian culture, and based on teachings found in the Bible, especially the Book of Revelation.
Because it is not a centrally organized religion, there is no way of knowing how many followers of the Rastafari faith exist, but over one million worldwide adherents are estimated.
