In 1936, Doctor B.R. Ambedkar was invited by the Jat Pat Todak Mandal of Lahore, an anti-caste Hindu reformist group based in Lahore, to deliver a speech during its annual conference.

The realization and visualization of the one and only ‘Brahma’ in everything and everywhere is, as Bhagavad Gita tells us, the step toward attaining ‘moksha’ or complete spiritual liberation.
