Nepalis in the UK are one of Britain’s newest ethnic minority communities. Already highly visible because of the Gurkha connection, in an extraordinarily short time they have made their mark on the British landscape and created 100s of community organizations.
These essays—all products of the Vernacular Religion project (2009–12), part of the AHRC’s Religion and Society programme—attempt to address these questions on the basis of detailed field research. They seek to provide an introduction to the full range of religious arguments and experiences of the UK’s diverse Nepali population.
