International Order Convention 2009 - Lokamitra

by Lokamitra

Lokamitra speaks at the 2009 International Order Convention in Bodh Gaya on the history of the modern Buddhist movement in India and the founding of the TBMSG. He draws parallels between Dr. Ambedkar's and Sangharakshita's approach to the Dharma, particularly their common emphasis on social change.

He addresses the stunning rebirth and growth of Buddhism in India, the positive work undertaken by the TBMSG and FWBO in the region, and the potential for Buddhists in India to have an impact on the future of their country and the rest of the world.

Recorded 2009 at Bodh Gaya, India. Includes translations.
