Below this post are three accounts written in the course of my last month's travels in India, covering the new wave of conversions to Buddhism among followers of Dr Ambedkar.
These were written as part of a blog dedicated specifically to that trip at http://ambedkar2006.blogspot.com. Now I've left India I've decided to use this site as my personal blog, and I've copied the posts that fit in best with what I am intending here. I travel a fair bit, usually encountering sights and sounds of Buddhism in the modern world. I'm intending to offer accounts of that here as well as reflections 'views and, hopefully the occasional 'insight'. Hence 'Dharma Sights'.
Right now I am in Portugal to do a week's teaching. I'll write soon about that.
