Groups In The West
One small country in the Americas that does have a
large Hindu population is Trinidad. I visited the Island in 1996 and
saw its Hindu culture, including its several wonderful temples. It
is much like being in India. Even Hindu Gods like Shiva and Hanuman
have taken their abode there.
Later I came in contact with
the Trinidad Mahasabha that has produced several good writers on
Hinduism that write regular articles on topical matters. They asked
me never to forget the overseas Hindus in the Caribbean, so I must
mention them here as well. There is another large Hindu pocket in
Guyana. The Caribbean Hindus show how Hinduism can be adopted to
another continent and its landscape. Certainly Hindus have not been
properly considerate of their overseas members, which makes them
prey to conversion efforts.
