Critical Dharma for Thinking Minds

Buddhism and Social Justice

Can Buddhism change society? Celebrating the 64th Dhammachakra Pravartan Day, the Conversion of Dr. B. R. Ambedkar- October 14th 2020. 

(Editor: On September 20, 2020, I became a Mitra of the Triratna Buddhist Community because I wanted to formalize my commitment to the legacy of Dr. B. R. Ambedkar, and the Triratna Community in India. I call what I practice Indian Buddhism, ancient and modern.)

The evening is in celebration of the pioneering jurist, economist, politician and social reformer, Dr. B. R. Ambedkar, who inspired the Dalit Buddhist movement in India and helped liberate thousands from an oppressive system. Join us online at: londonbuddhistcentreonline.com

Can Buddhism change society? We’ll spend the evening exploring that question, hearing from four ordained Buddhists on what they understand social justice to mean. In a symposium of short talks, speakers will draw on the social and political revolution of the Indian Dalit Buddhist movement and why it is so relevant to us, here in the West. We’d love for you to join in the conversation.
