Gypsy Education in Hungary in Crisis

Posted by Sadayasihi to Triratna News on Wed, 18 Jul, 2018 - 14:47

Hungarian gypsies, known as the Roma community, have a deep connection with the Dalits of India. Both communities are segregated, unable to get access to education or employment, and are treated like lesser humans.  Just like the Indian Dharma Revolution gave a voice to the Dalits and inspired a mass human rights movement, the Hungarian branch of the Triratna Community has developed the ‘Jai Bhim Network’.  The Dr Ambedkar High School in Miskolc, Northern Hungary, is run by the...

Subhuti, a longstanding champion of Doctor Ambedkar as an exemplar of democratic principles for the whole world, gives us a...

'Angry Buddha' coming soon

Posted by Munisha to Triratna News on Thu, 16 Jun, 2016 - 23:36

As we move toward the 60th anniversary of Dr Ambedkar’s conversion, we hear news of a documentary film about the curious and inspiring story of the Hungarian gypsies who were inspired to start Dr Ambedkar High School, to help young Roma/gypsies to a better life.

Due for international launch and screenings later this year, ‘Angry Buddha’ is the work of Austrian filmmaker Stefan Ludwig. Giving a picture of life in a Hungarian gypsy community, it tells the story of Janós...

#EthicalChristmas: Jai Bhim International - A Fire And A Tsunami

#EthicalChristmas: Jai Bhim International - A Fire And A Tsunami

Posted by Dayamudra to Buddhist Centre Features on Sat, 29 Nov, 2014 - 14:2610 years ago on Christmas day my house burned down, while I was on a Buddhist meditation retreat in the Santa Cruz mountains. Across the world, the same week, a tsunami destroyed villages on the coast of Chennai, southeast India, leaving whole communities homeless, jobless, displaced. Back in San Francisco, lying on Amy and Megan’s couch, feeling sorry for myself on New Year’s eve, faces of newly-orphaned children flickered across a tiny screen. That night I felt grateful for warm...

#EthicalChristmas - What Is Jai Bhim?

Posted by Dayamudra to Buddhist Centre Features on Fri, 28 Nov, 2014 - 16:32Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar might be the most famous Indian you’ve never heard of. Yet if you go into any village, any town, any city, anywhere in India, you will see statues, paintings, and shrines devoted to him. Did you know that there are more statues in his image than of anyone else in the country? You will hear people every day, if you listen carefully, greeting one another with “Jai Bhim”. “Long live Dr. Ambedkar and his comitment...

#EthicalChristmas: Money, Ethics, and Dharma Practice - A New Campaign on The Buddhist Centre Online

Posted by Candradasa to Buddhist Centre Features on Wed, 8 Oct, 2014 - 17:00A couple of months ago I was sitting in a room at Adhisthana, listening to my friend Mokshini speak very movingly about some quite profound shifts in her own sense of Dharma practice. She talked about having newly considered in her own life the sorts of issues raised by Triratna’s participation in Buddhist Action Month every year: environmental concerns, economic questions, all manner of socially engaged topics relevant to anyone looking to explore the...
