The Rastafari movement or Rasta as some call it, is a religious movement that arose in the 1930s in Jamaica.  Members of the Rastafari movement are known as Rastas, or Rastafari. Rastafari is not a highly organized religion; it is more of a movement and an ideology. Many Rastas say that it is not a “religion” at all, but a “Way of Life”.
