Lokamitra on the Nagaloka Institute, India

By sanghadhara on Tue, 18 Oct, 2016 - 14:20

Lokamitra has spent most of his adult life working in India to support the Dalit Buddhist community in their struggle against Hindu caste prejudice and its regard of them as literally “untouchable”. Inspired by the life and work of the great Dalit leader, India’s first Justice Minister Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar,  the Nagaloka Institute provides an invaluable chance to thousands of young Dalits, educating them in how Buddhism can help support their democratic rights to liberty, equality, and fraternity.

Interviewing Lokamitra and Subhuti in India

By Candradasa on Thu, 11 Apr, 2013 - 20:24“Why do you want to interview them together?” a few people asked me in India. Something to do with wanting to hold up the best exemplars in our community. Not perfect people, not “famous” people, just Dharma farers who have given their lives to working for the benefit of others. Also, they were there! And I was there. And I might never get the chance again…

India Boo No. 6 - Lokamitra on the future in India

By Candradasa on Wed, 20 Feb, 2013 - 18:22
A very special extended edition of the podcast with Lokamitra, one of the first generation of Order members and founder of so much of the Triratna Movement in India. A chance then, on a day of explorations around leadership and the future, to turn our attention to India. Any conversation with Lokamitra tends to the fascinating and this is no exception. Much to ponder, and a chance to celebrate a complex, generous man whose work has benefitted so...
