Democracy and Maitri (with translation in Hindi)

by Subhuti

The fourth 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.

Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar gave various definitions of democracy including the attitude of one citizen to another. He identified democracy with fraternity, with maitri. Unless there is maitri in society there cannot be true democracy.

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

This talk is part of the series Beyond Barriers.
