Ashoka The Great (Rupa Charitavali Series)
Ashoka The Great (Rupa Charitavali Series)
Description
From the Jacket

Over two thousand years ago, an Indian monarch spoke of the duties of a king. He saw himself as the father of his people, working ceaselessly for their welfare. Then at a time when conquerors were admired, he gave up war and chose the path of peace. There have been few monarchs in the world like Ashoka,the Mauryan king who rules over India's first empire. After a devastating war, he became a Buddhist and spread the words of the Buddha across the land. Then he carved his thoughts on rocks and pillars for posterity. Ashoka's wise and compassionate voice speaks to us across the centuries and his words are relevant even today.

This is the story of Ashoka, man of peace and one of the greatest kings India has ever seen.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
