Front Cover
Gyan Books, 2002 - Buddhism - 284 pages
The present work is based on interdisciplinary approach for identifying the content and nature of the modernisation process occurred in Buddhism. The study rightly identifies the features of post-modernisation in the understanding of Ambedkar and Dalai Lama about Buddhism. The study touched the fringes of post-modern understanding of Buddhism, i.e., Dalit Buddhism or Adi Buddhism. The present study mainly deals with the contribution of Ambedkar and Dalai Lama XIV to modernize the Buddhist tradition.

DR. VASANT MHASKE: Well researched book. Dr. Ambedkar's contribution to revival of Buddhism is much more than stated & can not be compared with Dalai Lama,who did contribute towards modernising Buddhism.The main difference between the two has been understated.Dr.Ambedkar's Revival & modernisation of Buddhism is more of a social phenomenon,which would prove revolutionary whereas Dalai Lama's approach is still individualistic.
