Celebrating 125th Birthday of Dr Ambedkar

by Vajratara (2016)

Who are the great world reformers? Vajratara presents the life and work of Dr Ambedkar, who transformed the lives of his followers in India who were oppressed by the caste system. He thought that the Buddhism had a part to play in social transformation, that transforming mind is transforming society. With this in mind, he embraced Buddhism in 1956, bringing millions of people with him. These conversions formed the basis of the vibrant and inspiring Triratna community in India. Vajratara gives a flavour of this community and the work of the India Dhamma Trust who supports Dhamma work in India, transforming hearts and minds and annihilating caste at its root.
