In October 2016, young Triratna Buddhists from around the world gathered in India to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the first mass conversions of Dalits (ex-Untouchable Indians) to Buddhism to escape the horrors of the Hindu caste system, inspired by their great leader Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar.

Come with us to the place of that great historical event - the Diksha Bhumi! Rise Up! Reach Out!
