Posted by vajratara on Thu, 22 Nov, 2018 - 11:47

We have a new Mitra study module on Dr Ambedkar! Check it out in Year 3, Module 8

About half the total Triratna Buddhist Community (friends and mitras) and a third of the Triratna Buddhist Order is in India. There is much that is shared throughout the whole Movement, including our basic teachings and practices, but one noticeable difference is the emphasis on Dr Ambedkar. At every class and on every retreat in India you will find on the...

THE BIG GIVE CHRISTMAS CHALLENGE

This year, India Dhamma Trust is applying to take part in the BigGive’s Christmas Challenge  https://www.thebiggive.org.uk/christmas-challenge/

Dhamma Revolution Retreat at Adhisthana 17-19 November

Posted by vajratara on Tue, 1 Aug, 2017 - 11:22

‘After my contact with Dr Ambedkar and his followers I became much more aware of the social dimension of Buddhism and, in fact, the social dimension of life itself’

Dr Ambedkar is, in Sangharakshita’s terminology, one of the greatest Buddhists of the 20th century and a profound influence on Sangharakshita’s life and thought. Deeply committed to the uplift of the most marginalised communities in India, Dr Ambedkar saw the Dhamma as a means of individual and social transformation. This...

An opportunity to join India Dhamma Trust

We have a new opportunity to support Dhamma work in India by joining the India Dhamma Trust team as a trustee treasurer. A third of our Order and roughly half of the Movement is in India with a fraction of the resources we have in the UK.  There are an estimated 10 million people who have embraced Buddhism, but who need guidance from a committed Sangha on how to deepen their practice.  Would you like to make a significant...

Dr Ambedkar and Buddhism - Conference in West London - Sunday May 7th 2017

Posted by Dhammavijaya on Thu, 26 Jan, 2017 - 11:33

This conference will explore why Dr Ambedkar embraced Buddhism and why he encouraged his followers to do the same. We will look at how Buddhism is practised in India now, and how it has changed the lives of many of its followers. We will ask how Dr Ambedkar’s understanding of Buddhism can influence Buddhist practice all over the world, and we will examine what the future holds for Buddhism in India.

As followers of Dr Ambedkar living in Europe, your attendance, input,...
