Rastafarianism and its roots in Hinduism of the Caribbean Indian diaspora
Why does Rastafarianism resemble so much the way of life of a Hindu Sadhu?

“The Indians in Jamaica first arrived as indentured workers. Because how Indians and Afro-Jamaicans they were not isolated from each other. Almost every walk of life were influenced by Indians and therefore came from the Hindus which now pervades Jamaican society. That influence, especially of women, would have resulted in cultural transfer. Even the physical appears of rastas e.g. the locks can be traced back to influence from India.
