Dear All,
Namo Buddhay and Jai Bheem!

2010.04.05. Categorized: Uncategorized   

I hope you all are doing good. We all are celebrating 119th Birth Anniversary of Boddhisatva Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar (Bheem Jayanti) and most of us are busy in planning/arrangements of this Great Day.
We all are aware that, we already have less Festival in a year. People are getting attracted by Hindu Festival or some other special days and still celebrating Hindu festival(i.e. Diwali, Holi, Garbha, Rakshabandhan, Mahashivratri etc.).

Rashtriya Pariwarik Dhamma Sangoshti (RPDS) are telling to people about, what are our Festivals? what is our Culture? Dos’/don’ts for Festival? etc etc through workshop, since more than two decades.

What we can do on Bheem Jayanti/Buddha Jayanti (Vesak Poornima)?

1.) On Jayanti Day, we must involve in public program at Buddha Vihar till noon only(try to avoid Public program in evening, we have other days for it).

2.) On this evening/night, we should fill our Home with Candle, Lighting and Should play the Buddha-Bheem Songs.

3.) We should prepare sweets/namkins/snacks during a day time (or 1 day before) and in evening we should invite the nearest and dearest people for snacks. Don’t Forget to invite to our Non-Buddhist Friends on this days. Let them know that Today is our Festival.

4.) We should NOT schedule any program in Evening, publicly. (If we see, on EID evening Muslim brothers are always in Home n not in Madarsa/masjid, on Diwali Hindus are in Home and not in Mandir, on X’mas Christians brothers are in Home and not in Church)

5.) We should do shopping prior to 14th April Day.

6.) We should clean/paint/decorate the house prior.

7.) Rangoli should be design infront of House/Buddha Vihar/Public place like Buddhas/Babasahebs statue Premises.

8.) Those who are away from Home should reach to their home town to celebrate the festival with their family.

9.) Those who don’t have holiday they MUST apply for Holiday on 14th day and Celebrate it.

10.) We should wear new Cloths (white in morning) on that day.

11.) We should NOT arrange any personal program like Engagement, Marriage Ceremony, Inauguration of Home/Shop etc or not even Paritran PaaTh.

12.) Panchasheel Flag and Panchasheel Toran should be hang on House/Lane/Buddha Vihar/Public place like Buddhas/Babasahebs Statue premises.

13.) Daan/Donation should be given for program @ Vihar/Bhikkhu Sangha. And Donate books to children.

I know most of us are following the same, requesting to those who are not. If we start follow it, our neighbors will also start doing it.

Jai Bhim is a cheerful greeting. Ten million Indians greet each other in this manner. They're the Dalits who are a proud community. They inherited an extremely difficult life. Their parents and grandparents and untold generations before them were outcasts in society. Even today they still encounter prejudice and experience helplessness.
For more than a millenium their ancestors lived as outcasts. People had a horror of touching them. Others even avoided being in their proximity as their shadow was considered polluting. If they went to school they were seated separately, If they were able to obtain work they did the dirtiest and lowest paid jobs.

With their greeting of Jai Bhim they remind each other of their own successful revolution in 1956 for their human rights. Their cause is sacred. It inspires us here in Hungary, as we also face segregation and prejudice today. We would like to know discrimination is a thing of the past.
The dalit's story is like a fairy tale.

Our Inspiration 3rd Part

Our Inspiration (3rd Part)
Once upon a time, a hundred years ago, there lived a seventeen year old untouchable boy in a big family, His name was Bhim. He was the youngest child among 14 siblings. He surpassed all of them because of his brilliant mind. A wealthy maharaj acknowledged his poverty and bestowed a scholarship on him. Bhim was aware that Indian schools were being discriminatory and practiced segregation. Therefore, he tried his fortune in London and New York where he achieved university degrees. He received the title Dr. Ambedkar when he returned home to serve his people as a barrister.

Nevertheless, he was considered as an untouchable in accordance with the holy books of the Hindu religion. Therefore, he convened with his friends and publicly burned Manu's Laws, the Hindu holy script which bids the Hindu to hold the Untouchable in disdain. He became a human right fighter and his authority was constantly growing throughout the whole country. When India gained independence in 1947 he was nominated as law minister. He was entrusted with drafting the Constitution for the country. He wrote in it that discrimination is forbidden.

Our Inspiration 5th Part

Our Inspiration (5th Part)
In his old age the Dalit people addressed him with veneration as Dr. Babasaheb. He and his laws, however respected they were, he still stared frustratedly at the discrimination existing all over the country. He decided then to show the people a spiritual alternative. As our judgment is determined by our faith, he took an oath: "I was born a Hindu Untouchable. It was beyond my power to prevent that but I declare that it is within my power to refuse to live under ignoble and humiliating conditions. I solemnly assure you that I will not die a Hindu". He abjured hindu religion that had brought so much suffering and humiliation to the Untouchable people (today's Dalits).

Our Inspiration 6th Part

Our Inspiration (6th Part)
He studied thoroughly all the faiths of the world. He was seeking a religion which fitted together with reason, with modern science, and which declared liberty, fraternity and equality amongst people. He decided to follow the path of the Indian prince who lived 2500 years ago: he would be a follower of the Buddha. This was a decision of profound importance for the Dalits because the Buddha is venerated thoughout the world, and India is entitled to take pride in her great son. Dr. Ambedkar showed his astuteness: all of us can choose the way to be respected, we can change our fate for the better. Hundreds of thousands followed Ambedkar to the magnificent ceremony in Nagpur in October 1956. This was the rebirth of Buddhism in India. Babasaheb died six weeks later.

Our Inspiration 7th Part

Our Inspiration (7th Part)
Those who at that time embraced a new world view with him, they are today grandfathers and grandmothers. Their grandchildren are as numerous as the whole population of Hungary. They follow Ambedkar's example: they face even the biggest difficulties in all things - to study and to exercise their human rights.
