1 The Buddha and His Dhamma: A Critical Edition

B.R. Ambedkar; Aakash Singh Rathore and Ajay Verma (edited, introduced, and annotated)

Oxford University Press, New Delhi, India, 2011, 0198068670 / 9780198068679, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 
The Buddha and His Dhamma was B.R. Ambedkarís last work. Published posthumously, it presented a radical reorientation of Buddhist thought and literature, aptly called navayana. . It deals with Ambedkarís conceptualization of Buddhism and the possibilities it offered for liberation and upliftment of the Dalits. It presents his reflections on the life of the Buddha, his teachings, and the spread of Buddhism by interweaving anecdotes with detailed analyses of the religionís basic tenets. The author also includes important elements of the Buddhist canon and tradition to make the teachings more accessible. In the first critical and annotated edition of this work, the editors address the on-going debate on Ambedkarís interpretation of the Buddhaís dhamma by focusing on the accuracy of his citations and providing missing sources. They also discuss Ambedkarís modification of source materials. The introduction contextualizes the scholarly work related to the text. Printed Pages: 356. 036479
