Dr Bhimrao Ambedkar (1891–1956) worked to transform Indian society and uplift the most marginalised, in particular the Dalits, a community of which he himself was part. Throughout his extraordinary life, he did this by political, legal and economic means, including drafting the Indian constitution after Indian independence. India is where one third of the worldwide Triratna Buddhist Order and half of the world’s Mitras live and Dr Ambedkar is a huge inspiration among them.
And he has a lot to teach us in 21st Century Birmingham!
Dr Ambedkar believed that Buddhism itself can provide a positive force for good in society. He drew out the social message of Buddhism, its potential to help relieve inequality, greed, hatred and ignorance in all its forms, both in the individual and in society. Studying Dr Ambedkar helps us broaden our understanding of Buddhism to include its impact on societies all over the world.
