The Rastafarian movement has been steadily growing throughout the Caribbean over the years.
Rastas believe that Haille Selassie, king of Ethiopia, was an incarnation of the Most High God, JAH.
Other features of the group are a "dreadlock" hairstyle and the smoking of marijuana for ritual , religious purposes
Rastas also believe in a "natural" existence and abstain from eating meat.
As with any sect, people chose what they want to adopt out of it, and so there will be people who claim to be Rasta, but do not conform entirely to all of the above.
The "Back to Eden" idea is very popular worldwide... and likely to become more so... given the stress and strain of modern existence.
