    You alluded to jah Rastafar I being a replacement for Hindu gods.

    Okay, that has nothing to do
    With your original statement.

    You said Jah is not a Hindu word.
    Of course it isn't. Please bold
    Where someone said that it is.

    I never said they did I said your quote alluded that it was. Your quote clearly says jah rastfari comes from Hinduism.

    The Mansingh studies have enumerated Howell's innumerable borrowings
    from the Indians --- his name Gangunguru Maragh
    (from gyan, knowledge; guna, virtue; guru, teacher; and Maharadj,
    King); his prayers' use of Hindi words; his concept of a 🤬 -King;
    the sacramental use of 🤬 , meditation, vegetarian cooking and
    spices, and even the holy salutation --- 'Jah! Rastafari!
    '

    One can hear the loud chants of Jai Bhagwan, Jai Rama, Jai
    Krishna, or Jai Kali (victory to 🤬 /Rama/Krishna/Kali) at any
    private or community Hindu Pooja or prayer meeting...As Ras
    Tafari gained the status of African Lord Rama/Krishna during
    the 1940s, phonetic usage of the word Jai was continued. But
    Rama, Krishna and Kali were replaced by Ras Tafari. Searching
    the Old Testament...the Rastas found the word Jah, which is
    phonetically similar to the Hindi word Jai.

    Howell not only borrowed some exotic words and rituals
    from the Indians to feed the fancies of an illiterate audience, he also
    adopted a way of thinking. Indian thought --- karma and rebirth---
    provided him with a system that resolved the western dichotomy of
    heaven and hell, Jesus and Satan, black and white, spirit and flesh.



    I've bolded ^^ where you misread..

    Jah is not hindi jah is from the bible.


    What you (supposedly) read says that Jah is phonetically similar to a Hindi word,
    Not that it is a Hindi word.
    And it says that the word Jah is from the Old Testament.
    So it's clear to me that you misread and thought that it said
    Jah is a Hindi word. It didn't

    "And even the holy salutation -- jah! Rastafari"

    If you read the second paragraph,
    It explains that the "Jah! Rastafari" salutation
    Derives from Jai Bhagwan/Rama/Krishna/Kali chants,
    Not that Jah itself is a Hindu word
    Or that "Jah Rastafari" itself is the Hindu chant.
    It even says Jah comes from the Old Testament. I don't see
    How you could misunderstand that.

    It says when Ras Tafari "gained the status" of 🤬 King,
    usage of Jai (Hindi, translation Victory) was continued
    As "Jai! Ras Tafari", i.e. "Victory! Ras Tafari!"..
    Jah replaced Jai and became "Jah! Rastafari", i.e. "🤬 Ras Tafari"

    This idiot doesn't understand how saying jah rastafari comes from jai bhagwan alludes to one taking from the other.

    I'm not arguing against that. I acknowledge that it is an example
    Of Hinduism's influence on Rastafari.

    However, that doesn't "allude" to Jah being a Hindi word,
    As you previously said. Again, nowhere does anybody say that Jah
    Is a Hindi word.

    Yeah it does because when you allude to something you suggest something without directly saying it.

    Yeah but in this case, that isn't what happened.
    It explicitly says Jah comes from the Old Testament,
    Not the Hindi language.

    Just that "Jah" replaced the Hindi word "Jai" in
    The Ras Tafari chant, which was influenced
    By the Hindu chants to Bhagwan, etc.

    Troll level one thousand.

    Jah came from the o.t yet Rastafarians replaced jai with jah.
