Dr Ambedkar - Dhamma Revolution

by Padmavajra (2001)

Another tribute by Padmavajra to the life and work of the great Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar, who dedicated his life to the welfare of his people. Dr. Ambedkar embraced the Buddha's Dhamma as an integral part of his efforts to emancipate the Dalit (ex-Untouchable) community from the shackles of caste oppression. His efforts are increasingly celebrated both in the West and in India, where his inspiration continues to encourage people to take up the Buddha's teachings as part of a new life aimed squarely at freedom.
