Democracy and the Law of Karma (with translation in Hindi)

by Subhuti (2014)

The second in a series of talks by Subhuti entitled Beyond Barriers.

The National Network of Buddhist Youth Convention 2014 was held at the Hsuan Tsang Retreat Centre in Bordharan, Maharashtra, India from 26th - 31st December. Subhuti led with this series of five talks given to over 650 young people.

To create a true democracy on the basis of the Buddha Dharma we have to overcome social divisions, groups, caste. Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar chose Buddhism as the best means by which to overcome caste and help human beings realise their full potential. He said that there is no freedom unless the mind is trained for freedom. To create democracy we need an understanding of the law of karma.

The talks are given in English and translated into Hindi by Bharati Shetty.

This talk is part of the series Beyond Barriers.
