In today’s FBA Dharmabyte Lokamitra speaks to the Triratna Buddhist Order in Bodh Gaya on the history of the modern Buddhist movement in India. In “The Growth and Potential of Buddhism in India” he draws parallels between Dr. Ambedkar’s and Sangharakshita’s approach to the Dharma, particularly their common emphasis on social change.
This excerpt is from the 2009 International Convention where Lokamitra addresses the stunning rebirth and growth of Buddhism in India, the positive work undertaken by the TBMSG and FWBO in the region, and the potential for Buddhists in India to have an impact on the future of their country and the rest of the world.
