The Dalit Buddhist movement (dubbed as Navayana by certain Ambedkarites) is a 19th and 20th-century Buddhist revival movement in India. It received its most substantial impetus from B. R. Ambedkar's call for the conversion of Dalits to Buddhism, in 1956, to escape a caste-based society that considered them to be the lowest in the hierarchy. Ambedkar saw Buddhism as a means to end the Indian caste system.

  • The Dalit Buddhist movement (dubbed as Navayana by certain Ambedkarites) is a 19th and 20th-century Buddhist revival movement in India. It received its most substantial impetus from B. R.

  • Le mouvement bouddhiste Dalit (appelé navayâna, ou nouveau véhicule par certains ambedkarites) est un mouvement de renouveau du bouddhisme qui a commencé à la fin du XIXe siècle en Inde. B. R. Ambedkar lui donna une impulsion particulièrement substantielle en appelant à la conversion des dalits (ou ex-intouchables) au bouddhisme, afin qu’ils échappent à une société basée sur les castes, qui les met tout en bas de la hiérarchie.
  • Il movimento buddhista dalit (definito come Navayana da alcuni dei seguaci di B. R. Ambedkar) è un movimento di rinascita buddhista in India datato XIX-XX secolo. Ha ricevuto il suo più consistente impulso proprio dall'operra svolta da Ambedkar col suo appello per la conversione dei dalit al Buddhismo; questo per sfuggire ad una società basata su una forte imposizione castale che li considerava il più basso elemento nella gerarchia della popolazione in generale.
  • 新仏教運動(しんぶっきょううんどう、パーリ語:नवयान Navayāna、英語: Neo-Buddhist movement)は、近代・現代のインドにおいて主に支配的なヒンドゥー教に対抗し、仏教を再興しようとする動きを指す。仏教復興運動、仏教再興運動ともいう。これ以前のインドにおける仏教の推移については、インドの仏教を参照のこと。
