The Buddha and His Dhamma was B.R. Ambedkar's last work. Published posthumously, it presented a radical reorientation of Buddhist thought and literature, aptly called navayana . . It deals with Ambedkar's 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 religion's 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 Ambedkar's interpretation of the Buddha's dhamma
by focusing on the accuracy of his citations and providing missing
sources. They also discuss Ambedkar's modification of source materials.
The introduction contextualizes the scholarly work related to the text.
