Abstract: India is a birthplace of Buddhism. It started with the
attainment of enlightenment by the Buddha and his pivotal decision to
share this knowledge of enlightenment with the society at large. Across
the span of centuries, Buddhism got divided into many sects and
developed various traditions. Thereafter, Buddhism disappeared from
India in 13th Century and remained hidden in the teachings of great
saint poets like Kabir, Tukaram and Ravidas. Later Indians started
discovering Buddhism in the middle of 19th century. The social message
of the Buddha was relevant in the context of Indian society which was
divided into castes and it was a major barrier to realise justice in
India. Many archeologists, scholars, writers, social reformers, Buddhist
leaders have contributed to revive Buddhism in India.
This talk will give a brief history of the resurgence of Buddhism in
India till the middle of 20th century. It will also highlight the nature
of revival of Buddhism in the north and south India.
