The Religious Life of the Gorkhalis of Myanmar

Gorkhalis (people of Nepali origins, mostly Hindus and Mahayani Buddhists) have lived in Myanmar since the late 1800s. They came with the British Army and fought through the World Wars, then stayed on in the aftermath. This essay explores some of the recent conflict created by newly converted Hinayana Buddhists who are trying to convert faith-based communities to their own religious ideology.
