B.R. Ambedkar (1891-1956), a multidimensional personality, is often hailed as the Chief Architect of the Indian Constitution. But one of the most abiding aspect of his life and career which history will remember is his conversion to Buddhism, leading the largest one-time conversion of a people. Therefore, his contribution to, and interpretation of. Buddhism, and his role in its revitalization and above all his use of Buddhism as an instrument of social change in India are subjects of prime importance and serious study.
