About the Video: This year we commemorate Dr Ambedkar’s 125th birth anniversay as well as 60 years since he converted to Buddhism along with 500,000 of his followers; thus liberating them from the oppression of the Hindu caste system. His vision for the potential of Buddhism as creating a pure land, is not just for India, but has an important message for Buddhists worldwide. Produced by the India Dhamma Trust, ‘Celebrating Dr B.R. Ambedkar’ is a 15 minute video in which Dhammachari Subhuti, who spends several months per year teaching in India, offers four main reasons why we might remember and honour this great man.
