Inspired by Ambedkar - Sangharakshitas Perspective

by Vajratara (2015)

Vajratara presents the work of Dr Ambedkar from a new angle - looking at how he inspired Sangharakshitas life and work. There is an alchemy that happens when the inspiration of the Buddha, Dr Ambedkar and Sangharakshita come together. Dr Ambedkar showed how change can be achieved by spiritual means. He demonstrated how the Dharma can be force for the transformation of society, inspiring Sangharakshitas own Dharma Revolution in the West. More than his work, his energy and strong feeling, and the emotions of his followers, closely matched Sangharakshitas own feelings for the Dharma. This furthered Sangharakshitas understanding that Buddhists are united by Going for Refuge, not lifestyle.
