This talk was offered by Greg Snyder after his trip to India, on October 2016, for a gathering of the International Network of Engaged Buddhists in celebration the 60th anniversary of Dr. B.R. Ambedkar’s conversion, and the birth of India Buddhist movement, widespread among Dalit communities.

During the conference, engaged Buddhists from traditional and western backgrounds reflected on aspects of Buddhism from their own social experience: dharma as empowerment; breaking down barriers between people; the implications of dharma for governance and civil society.

Greg’s written reflections on the conference are available here:
