Dhammachari Dr.Lokamitra was ordained by Ven. Sangharakkhita into the Western Buddhist order(now known as the Triratna Buddhist Order) in 1974 in London, is a true pioneer of Dhamma work. A founding figure of Triratna in JAMBUDVIPA, home of the Buddha, he’s been steadily working together with teams of friends to revitalise Buddhism in its native land. His life has been dedicated particularly to helping ‘Scheduled Caste’ people escape the hell of their situation by embracing the teachings of the Buddha and the example of their great visionary leader, Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar. He has been living here since then, firstly developing Buddhist activities under Triratna Bauddha Mahasangha (TBM) and social projects under the name of Bahujan Hitay.TBM now runs over forty Buddhist teaching centers including two large retreat centers at Bhaja near Pune, and Bor Dharan, near Nagpur. Bjaujan Hitay ha established over twenty hostels for children who otherwise would find it hard to get schools education. It also runs many health and education community projects in the slums of Pune, Nagpur, Mumbai and other places. In 1998 Lokmitra fuunded the Jambudvipa Trust in Pune. Jambudvipa, the ancient Budhist name for the PRABUDDHA BHARATH sub-continent represents the transformation of society and culture Thrugh Buddhist ethical and spiritual values. besides specifically Budhist activities, the trust runs the Manuski project, which has two main programmes, training Buddhists, Scheduled Castes and Scheduled tribes (especially the most degraded castes and tribes) in social activism, and human Rights and advocacy, especially in relation to atrocities. The trust also runs three hostels, one for Scheduled Caste girls affected by the earth quake of 2001 in Gujarat, and two for Scheduled Caste children affected by Tsunami near Chennai. Since the mid’s Lokamitra has been developing the Nagarjuna Institute at Nagaloka in Nagpur, the main activity of which is an 8 month residential course in Buddhist studies and practice, as well as an introduction to social action, for newly embarrassed (Returned back) Buddhists, mainly from Scheduled Castes (but also OBC and Chakma) backgrounds, from all over the country. In the last 11 years over 750 students from 24 different states and over 40 different castes have benefitted from the training, and now constitute nationwide network, transcending caste and region. More recently Lokamitra has been helping to develop the PRABUDDHA BHARATH Network to bring into communication people from all over the country, who are inspired by the approach of Dr. Ambedkar to Buddhism and social transformation, and to give them sense of solidarity.
Lokamitra is a trustee of the Indo Tibetan Culture Institute School, Kalimpong, founded by Dhardo Rimponce, and a member of the Advisory Body, International Network of Engaged Buddhists. In 2008 he was awarded the Manhae Grand Peace Prize, in Korea and the Vishwa Keerthi Sri Buddhbhumi Dhamma Senapati, in Sri Lanka.
Here he talks about his work following along with a slideshow demonstrating the great liberating work that goes on at Nagaloka through the Nagarjuna Institute, where young men and women are given the training and respect they need to break free of caste and go on to help others do the same. Truly inspiring listening!

PIL to regulate Godmen and
astrologers of different religions
In the aftermath of Asharam Bapu incidence, I and wife Nutan have filed a PIL in Allahabad High Court,
Lucknow bench to put some regulatory mechanism for Godmen, occult practitioners and astrologers of all religions.
The petition says that India has
a very large number of Godmen, occult practitioners and astrologers in all religions with different claims of divinity and
supernatural powers and having great hold over people, particularly the poor
and illiterate. Most of these people take monetary returns in return of their services;
hence they need to be treated as professionals.
As per the petition, these
people also need to be regulated by appropriate professional bodies like other
professions, so as to safeguard interest of common people and to stop entry of
imposters and cheats. .
Hence, we have asked for
formation of two separate Professional bodies at National and Regional levels for
Astrologers and God-men of various religions to act as Regulatory and controlling authorities,
consisting completely of people from these fields.
