Introduction to Dr Ambedkar (with translation in Marathi)

by (2017)

Vajratara interviews some of our Indian Sangha about Dr Ambedkar: his life and main teachings. The panel are Ratnasila and Jnanasuri who are Public Preceptors, Ratnakumar and Vidyavardhini who work for the young people's project in India, and Bharati who was on the Dharma Life Course at Adhisthana at the time. The highlight is Jnanasuri talking about her first hand experience of Ambedkar embracing Buddhism along with 400,000 followers in 1956. She was 13 at the time! This was recorded on a retreat at Adhisthana introducing Dr Ambedkar.
