Dhammacharini Vajratara argues that Dr Ambedkar is not just relevant for India or for the oppressed, but essential for modern Buddhism all over the world, challenging us to move beyond a comfortable Buddhism that fits neatly into modern consumer society.

The talk was given at a retreat at Rivendell for young people comparing the teachings of Dr Ambedkar and Sangharakshita. Those on the retreat were asked to read Buddha and the Future of His Religion and Blueprint for a New world in preparation.

Singhamanas gave the next talk.
