We want to inaugurate the 11th year of the IJTS
publications with the 1st part of the paper by Dr. Peter Flügel (SOAS) "Beyond The Hindu Frontier
Jaina-Vaiṣṇava Syncretism In The Gujarātī Daspora". The article deals with the Akram Vijñān movement and is based on Peter Flügel's intermittent fieldwork between 1997-2004 in Amadāvād/Ahmedabad, London, Mumbaī/Bombay, Surat, and Vaḍodarā/Baroda. The paper also offers original Gujarātī ritual texts. Most of the texts have been published in the pamphlet literature of the Akram Vijñān Mārg.
