The Bhagavad Gita was written about 500 years before Yshua the Nazarene...I do believe it to be a contemporary of Shakyamani Buddha.
Honestly I feel more Rasta should read up on Eastern philosophy...they might gain a deeper overstanding of JAH manifesting in different times and planes of existence throughout the universe.
