Dr. Ambedkar’s book “Buddha and His Dhamma” created world record!


A book in English on the Buddha’s life by Dr B R Ambedkar, which was translated into Hindi and etched into a stainless steel tome weighing a whopping 2,000 kg, was on Wednesday inaugurated at a public event at the GIC ground in Agra.

The 24-page book has the whole text of the 400-page ‘Buddha and His Dhamma’ and a huge crowd of 35,000 people came at the inauguration, which was done during an event called ‘Dhamma Kaarvan’.

Each of the book’s pages is 9.2 feet high, 5.5 feet wide and 2 inches thick and about 100kgs in weight. Not surprisingly, its makers have applied to the Guinness World Records as the ‘world’s heaviest book’.

Over two lakh words of the book, translated in Hindi by Siddharth Swaroop Buddh, have been engraved on steel. The makers claim that no book has been made of steel so far which is not fixed at one place and can be transported anywhere.
