We recently ran a retreat at Adhisthana with a team of Indian Order Members introducing Ambedkar. Vajratara interviewed our fine panel of Indian Sangha - the highlight of which is Jnanasuri recounting her experiences of Ambedkar embracing Buddhism with 400,000 followers in 1956. She was there aged 13! Later in the retreat we recited the Refuges and Precepts after Jnanasuri, who had recited them after Dr Ambedkar himself. It was a very moving moment.
