BZC’s Senior Teacher Greg Snyder travelled to India this month for a gathering of the International Network of Engaged Buddhists. They are gathering at the Nagaloka school in Nagpur, to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Dr. B.R. Ambedkar’s conversion, and the birth of India Buddhist movement, widespread among Dalit communities. The anniversary celebration of Dr. Ambedkar’s conversion will be celebrated at Nagpur’s Diksha Bhumi, the conversion ground where he stood to become a Buddhist in October of 1956. This memorial will bring together more than a million Buddhists from Maharastra, other provinces of India and internationally
