Chandragupta Maurya Retold from the Mudra Manjusha
Chandragupta Maurya Retold from the Mudra Manjusha
Description
Nearly 2,300 years ago, Chandragupta brought about the political unification of North India and established an empire which successfully resisted the Macedonian invasion. His empire extended up to Mysore (present day Karnataka) in the South and up to the borders of Persia (present day Iran) in the North-West.

There are various legends about the early career of Chandragupta, and it is difficult to distinguish fact from fantasy in the stories woven around his romantic life. But one thing is certain. He was the first emperor of India, as no other king before him had built an empire as vast as his.

Vishakhadatta's famous play on Chandragupta –Mudrarakshasa was written in the ninth century AD. This was followed nearly seven hundred years later by two Sanskrit works -Mudra Rakshasa Katha by Mahadeva Tirtha of Tanjore and Mudra Rakshasa Katha Sara by Ravikartana of Kerala which serve as introductions to the earlier play.

Kempu Narayana, a scholar at the court of Krishnaraja Wadeyar III of Mysore, made a study of these works on Chandragupta and wrote Mudra Manjusha in Kannada in 1823. Our Amar Chitra Katha is based on this pioneering work in Kannada prose.

That our story on Chandragupta should be based on a Kannada work is only befitting, for Chandragupta, though born in the North, spent his last days at Shravanabelagola in Karnataka.

Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
