Sangha Night: The Life of Dr Ambedkar

Tuesday 21st Sep 2021 - 7.15pm to 9.15pm

Buddhism Radically Changing Society - The Life of Dr Ambedkar

Dr Ambedkar is becoming increasingly well known outside of India because of his work to transform Indian society and uplift the most marginalised. He did this through political, legal and economic means, including drafting the Indian constitution after Indian independence. The Indian constitution is based on the values of ‘liberty, equality and fraternity’, values Dr Ambedkar said he derived not from the French Revolution, but from ‘my master the Buddha’.

What is also of significance to Buddhists is that as a man with a real feel for the spiritual life, he provides an inspiring example of someone who believed that Buddhism itself can provide a positive force for good in society.

As we begin this series we'll be hearing from Samudraghosha as he draws out the significance of Dr Ambedkar's life.
