The Ambedkar Society was established in April 2015 to promote the work and teachings of Dr. B. R. Ambedkar, India’s most famous Minister of Law. Now located in Central Massachusetts, the Ambedkar Society promotes the practice of Ambedkar’s Navayana, engaged secular Buddhism. The Ambedkar Society continues the publication of engagedbuddhism.net.
