In 1947, we had become free from the British rule but, freedom from
Aryan rule (the rule of Brahmanism) is yet to be achieved.
The Vedic religion (a religion that was thrust upon the people of
Bharat by the migrant Aryans) believes in class classification of the
people according to their Guna. But, in due course of time, it got
crystallized into a rigid Caste System, based on the principle of graded
inequality, which virtually made the people of the lowest rung of the
society into social slaves depriving them of all human rights. The so-
called Vedic society, whose core philosophy was Brahmanism, slowly
degenerated into a society devoid of morals. Exploitation of lower
classes by the higher classes was the order of the day. They were
denied access to the so-called religious texts, prevented from seeking
salvation, prohibited entry into the temples of Gods and Goddesses
and made them live in social Ghettos. In that situation, the Buddha
was born to save the suffering humanity. He raised the banner of
revolt against Brahmanism, the foundation of Hinduism.
Nowadays, it is dinned into our ears day in and day out that
Hinduism is not a religion; but, it is a way of life. Thereby, a smoke-
screen is created to mislead and misguide the gullible people. How
does the above-mentioned way of life benefit the lower and suffering
classes? Surely and undoubtedly, it strives for the exclusive benefit of
the higher classes and makes the lower classes to lead a life of servitude
in perpetuity. Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar's advice to reform Hinduism
was not heeded. He therefore crossed over to Buddhism - a native
Dhamma. Two things happened on the day of conversion - firstly, he
was no more a Hindu; and secondly, he felt that he was reborn as a
Buddhist - a man liberated from the shackles of Hinduism and escaped
from its cruelties.
This book contains a brief Biography of the Buddha, the Savior
of the Suffering Humanity, whom Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar had
considered him as his religious Guru. Along with the Biography of
the Buddha, profiles of some Prominent Indian Buddhist Monks in
the lifetime of the Buddha and during the later periods are included in
this book. The profiles of the famous three Chinese Buddhist Pilgrims
are also given along with the profile of His Holiness 14th Dalai Lama.
Banta Chandawimala of Singapore had created a blog named
Kalyanamitra Dhamma Sabha on September 12, 2010 in which he
has published some Buddhist paintings relating to the life of the Buddha.
