Why Dr Ambedkar Chose Buddhism (with translation in Hindi)

by Achala

The talk starts with an explanation of why Dr Ambedkar believed religion is important, both for the individual and for society. It then outlines how Buddhism is a reasonable religion, based on the principle of kindness. It is a religion that leads those who practice it towards Buddhahood. Adopting Buddhism is meaningless unless we actively practice it. This includes give up old ways of thinking, and not regarding Buddhism as just another caste label.
