Dr Ambedkar’s Approach to Buddhism

Towards A Socio-Cultural and Democratic Revolution

Summary of the Book

This book, probably for the first time, considers how Dr Ambedkar’s historic conversion to Buddhism in 1956, in Nagpur, with lacs of his followers, was a step towards carrying out a socio-cultural and democratic revolution in India.  

Dr. Ambedkar held that a religious or cultural revolution always precedes a political revolution. According to the author, India’s resolution to establish a new social order based on the principles of Liberty, Equality, Fraternity and Justice as enshrined in her constitution, is a peaceful democratic revolution.
Viewed in this context, the author argues that, by bringing back Buddhism to its place of origin,

Dr. Ambedkar sought to provide the cultural foundation to India’s post-Independence socio political revolution.
