History and Religious Significance
Rasta is a doorway, it encourages you to look at yourself as a part of the world and a part of nature. The internet will tell you that 'Rastafarians' believe that Haile Selassie I is God (Ras Tafari is the emperors name) but if you take the plunge remember that no matter how much someone tells you it's about reading the bible everyday and following rules it is actually the internal reflection that is the point. We as a people are part of nature, natty men and women.
This is what I have taken from Rastafari, no doubt people won't agree but that's what reasoning is for, reasoning is another key component of Rasta! Meditation and Reasoning are the best ways to learn about Rastafari!!!
