Executive Team
Shanti Swaroop Bauddh
Founder & Organizer

A renowned Ambedkarite scholar and preacher of Buddhism in India, he was christened Shanti Swaroop by Babasaheb Dr. Ambedkar himself. His venerable grandfather, Ch. Devidas Maurya, was one of Babasaheb's closest allies. His father, Late Lala Hari Chand Maurya, was instrumental in establishing the Samta Sainik Dal, founded by Baba Saheb, in Delhi state. His father had the honour of being the first vice-president of the Delhi State of The Buddhist Society of India (Regd.) founded by Babasaheb. His father is also credited with installing the first statue of Babasaheb, after his demise, at Ambedkar Bhavan in New Delhi. His father led the Delhi Republican Party as its president (1963-1967). So to say, Shanti Swaroop picked up the Ambedkarite movement and the auspicious Buddhist way of life as a legacy. His interest in art (painting) as a child culminated into his worldwide eminence as a celebrated artist. When, driven by his passion for social service and propagation of Buddhism, he resigned as a gazetted public post, his dexterity with brush came to his aid and he not only supported his faimily but also promoted the religious activities in all earnest. Taking the cue from his long practical experience in life, Shanti Swaroop Bauddh chose for his goal in publication of Ambedkarite-Buddhist literature in popular interest. He enjoys a unique record of having brought out over 800 books of various sizes in Hindi, English and other Indian and foreign languages as well. Besides these original and translated works, he has printed beautifully illustrated calendars and posters. His contribution to Ambedkarite-Buddhist literature as a publisher, illustrator and, of course, writer stands beyond measure. For last 35 years, he has shown his mettle as the editor of the Dhamma Darpan, a Hindi magazine devoted to righteousness, social and cultural upliftment of his people. He has travelled to a number of countries in Europe and Asia. An impressive orator, he served The Buddhist Society of India (Regd.), Delhi State, as its President for 10 years and is, presently, its National Organizor. His devotion and dedication to the Ambedkarite-Buddhist Mission and his diligent perseverence have made Samyak Prakashan the greatest and largest in the realm of the Ambedkarite Publications.
