1. The Satras (monasteries) are Vaishnavite religious institutions of Assam. These institutions played crucial roles in the propagation of Vaishnavism in this State. The Aonihati Satra, Kamalabari Satra and Garmur Satra of Majuli are famous and popular among the Vaishnavas of Assam.
2. Two groups of villagers of Barpamua had migrated from the village to form two small villages. One is about two kilometers from Barpamua and now having a separate identity in all activities from the original village. Therefore the household of that village is not included here. Another group has settled down near Jengraimukh Bazar and all village activities are performed according to what was done in the old village, so they are included in this study.
3. The Gaon Panchayats (Pub Jonai G.P., Dehmaji G.P. and Jengrai G.P.) records of 1975 have been  found wrong in course of my field work. The household and population data given here are  collected by household schedules and participant observation. The total household and the   total population figures supplied by the Gaon Panchayats of the respective villages have  therefore been not given here.
