Viradhamma will also be speaking on Wednesday Sangha Night Oct 14, here in San Francisco: "Listening to the Wisdom of Dr. Ambedkar." 7pm to 9pm.
Dr. Ambedkar quotes:
A just society is that society in which ascending sense of reverence and descending sense of contempt is dissolved into the creation of a compassionate society
Equality may be a fiction but nonetheless one must accept it as a governing principle.
So long as you do not achieve social liberty, whatever freedom is provided by the law is of no avail to you.
