Read 22 Vows administered by Dr BabaSaheb Ambedkar in Hindi.

“I have never claimed to be a universal leader of suffering humanity. The problem of the untouchables is quite enough for my slender strength. I do not say that other causes are not equally noble. But knowing that life is short, one can only serve one cause and I have never aspired to do more than serve the Untouchables.”

Read -  Transcript of Dr Ambedkar’s 1953 Interview with BBC - When Dr Ambedkar Said Democracy Won’t Work in India

“The basis of my politics lies in the proposition that the Untouchables are not a sub-division or sub-section of Hindus, and that they are a separate and distinct element in the national life of India.”

“My social philosophy may be said to be enshrined in three words: liberty, equality and fraternity. My philosophy has roots in religion and not in political science. I have derived them from the teachings of my master, the Buddha.”

“I also take refuge in the words of the Buddha to be your own guide. Take refuge in your own reason. Do not listen to the advice of others. Do not succumb to others. Be truthful and take refuge in the truth. Never surrender to anything. If you keep in mind this message of Lord Buddha at this juncture, I am sure, your decision will not be wrong. “

“With great Difficulty, I have brought this CARAVAN where it is seen today.Let the CARAVAN march ON and further ON despite the hurdles, pitfalls and difficulties that may come in its way. If my people, my lieutenants are not able to take the CARAVAN ahead, they should leave it where it is seen today, but in no circumstances they should allow the CARAVAN to go back.”

    What can a ‘sincere’ Dalit do? « Dr B R Ambedkar Books

    […] You have been stripped off your true history, your culture, and everything. So, what are you afraid of? Dalits weren’t Hindus or Dalits didn’t use to go to temples. Our festivals, our Gods, our eating habits, our lifestyle and each and everything were different. Who stripped you of all these? Do you have to visit temples to get all these back? I seriously doubt that. How many of us seriously follow the 22 vows administered by Dr. Ambedkar? I feel ashamed when I see many of my Buddhist friends from Maharashtra visiting the Shirdi Sai temple. Whenever I visit my friends’ homes, no doubt I always see Dr. Ambedkar’s pictures there but along with that I always find some idol or picture of one of the 33 crore fake Gods. And I could never understand why they are not able to come out of slavery or why they could never change their mindset even after 55 years of conversion. Stop visiting temples– why don’t Dalits understand that money donated by you at temples is used against you?And follow the 22 vows administered by Dr. Ambedkar. […]

    It is very good attempt to produce site regarding Dr.B.R. Ambedkar. If every moolniwasi get read Baba Saheb’s Lit. and follow his 22 Vows then it will not take much time to change the social system of present India. We can established the social system based on “SAMTA,SWETANTRTA,BANDHUTWA and NYAY”.i.e. Phule Ambedkari Samaj.

    I don’t know who r u? But I really want to say thanks to u for ur special work of society.
    This is first time I am seeing this easy method of knowing Dr.Babasaheb Ambedkar and their dream. This credit goes to u because despite of having all the facilities many people don’t do the work of society which ur doing.
    And it will be useful to all the E-users to know the real history of India, which has been conceal by some people.Here, I would like to make one request to u that if u can comment on Arun shories book ” worshiping of false God” then tat will be great help to me and to other users as well.
    what can I say about 22 vows which has been given by Babasaheb at Nagpur becoz I also don’t fallow all those vows.But I had tried to fulfill all but I could follow some of them. But soon I will be 100% follower and that is confidence.However, your work is great and I will be happy if I could do something for society and it will be my pleasure if I get chance to work with you.

    wish you all the best
