In the first, titled ‘The Dhamma Revolution East and West: East’, Subhuti outlines the Triratna Buddhist Community's connection with the Dhamma revolution in India. This comes mainly through Sangharakshita’s contact with the great Dr Ambedkar. In the talk Subhuti tells the story of Dr Ambedkar and inspires the audience with a sense of the potential for the Dhamma to influence society.
In the second, ‘The Dhamma Revolution East and West: West’, Subhuti presents the possibility of the Dhamma influencing and transforming Western Society. The key to this, he says, is our personal and collective conviction that the Dhamma isn't a set of 'nice' ideas but a description of the nature of reality.
There’s a third episode also on-line, of questions and answers following up the two talks - but we’ll leave you to find it!
