Maitriveer Nagarjuna interviews Bhante about his meetings with Dr. Ambedkar. In this rare and precious footage, Sangharakshita also talks about how he felt compelled to go to Nagpur on the night that Babaseb died, just seven weeks after he’d converted to Buddhism. That night, on the back of a cycle rickshaw, Bhante gave the first of hundreds of talks encouraging Dr. Ambedkar’s loyal followers to keep his legacy alive.
This is a twenty five minute extract from a longer interview that was conducted in...
In the third, but not the final. talk of this series, Suvajra looks at Right Livelihood and Art in the Spiritual Life.
Again, the similarities between Sangharakshita and Dr. Ambedkar’s thinking on these two special contributions to Triratna culture is explored.
This is not the final talk because Suvajra intends to complete the series on October 14th when the Adhisthana community and friends will celebrate the 60th anniversary of Dr. Ambedkar’s conversion to Buddhism.

As the film, part three of my history of Triratna, has several themes of conflict, I wanted to end on some sober reflection, and the author was kind enough to read his poem (or part of).
