About The Book

Ashoka, popularly known as Ashoka the Great, was an emperor of the Mauryan Dynasty who ruled almost all of the Indian subcontinent. One of India`s greatest emperors, Ashoka reigned over most of present-day India, after a number of military conquests. His empire stretched from present-day Pakistan and Afghanistan in the west, to the present-day Bangladesh and the state of Assam in the east, and as far south as northern Kerala and Andhra. He conquered the kingdom of kalinga, which no one in his dynasty had conquered. He embraced Buddhism. He was later dedicated to the propagation of Buddhism, across Asia and established monuments, marketing several significant sites in the life of Gautama Buddha. Ashoka was a devotee of ahimsa (nonviolence), love, truth, tolerance and vegetarianism. Ashoka is remembered in history as a philanthropic administrator.
