I AM afraid I am a little too fond of running down kings and princes. I see little in their kind to admire or do reverence to. But we are now coming to a man who, in spite of being a king and emperor, was great and worthy of admiration. He was Ashoka, the grandson of Chandragupta Maurya. Speaking of him in his Outline of History, H. G. Wells (some...

Asoka (Sanskrit: Asoka, 'sorrowless'), son of Bindusara and grandson of,. Candragupta Maurya, assumed the imperial throne about 270 B.C. His own edicts form the oldest Indian inscriptions hitherto deciphered. The few scattered details of his life preserved in semi-legendary form arc hardly worth collecting as a narrative. Asoka is supposed to have...

The Antiquity of writing in India and the Origin of the oldest Indian Alphabet. The tradition of both the orthodox and the heterodox sects of India ascribes the invention of writing, or at least of the chief script, to the creator Brabmā, and thereby claims it as a national invention of the remotest antiquity. The former view is found in the Nārad...

Professor K. R. Norman evaluated " While re-reading recently a book on Buddhism by an eminent Buddhist scholar, I noticed the following statement: "This notion of establishing the sasana or Buddhism in a particular country or a place was perhaps first conceived by Asoka himself. He was the first king to adopt Buddhism as a state religion, and to...

I. The Rummindei inscription The text of the Rummindei inscription, styled at first " the Asoka edict of Padaria," appears to have been first published by Professor Buhler, in the Anzeiger for the 7th January, 1897, of the Philosophical and Historical Section of the Imperial Academy of Sciences, Vienna.

A number of chronological and historical problems are connected, directly or indirectly, with our inscriptions and their author.

The Buddhism of King Asoka is presented here in conjunction with Early Buddhism, since Asoka’s ideas are closer to Early Buddhism than to Nikaya Buddhism. The dates of King Asoka’s reign, usually given as 268-232 b.c.e., are based on Rock Edict XIII, which listed the names of five kings to the west of India to whom King Asoka sent missionaries to s...

It seems entirely appropriate that the man who introduced modern archaeological methods to India should have had the same name as the first British Orientalist, John Marshall - and that the man who appointed him, Lord Curzon, should have been almost alone among British proconsuls in India in sharing Warren Hastings's fascination for Indian culture...

' Buddhism endorses a spirit of toleration and co- operation with the natural world.It does so because this traditional mode of behavior is given a specific sense by the tradition,and in the final analysis does not come into conflict with the ultimate goal,which is transcedence of the conditioned world.'
