Detlef Kantowsky`s Buddhisten in Indien heute (1999) brought to a German audience new material, including many photographs and documents, on six facets of Buddhists` life in India today. This English translation by Hans-Georg Tuersting will bring Kantowsky`s innovative study to an even wider audience. He has examined the literature on the New Buddhists, converts in the wake of Dr. B.R. Ambedkar`s conversion to Buddhism in 1956, and also studied the All India Bhikkhu Sangha, the organization of monks chiefly from that conversion. The efforts of the Sangha as documented in their conferences are new material in the literature on the Ambedkar movement. He has allowed Eleanor Zelliot to add her comments, sometimes contradictory, in a chapter at the end of the volume to which he replies in a Postcript. The result is a stimulating account of a living religion.
