Ashoka The Great – The Mighty Warring Emperor who Transformed into a Messenger of Peace, Non – Violence and Love
Ashoka The Great – The Mighty Warring Emperor who Transformed into a Messenger of Peace, Non – Violence and Love
Description
Preface

Emperor Ashoka’s life makes an amazing tale of how a power hungry and blood thirsty warrior king could undergo a change of heart and transform into an apostle of peace, love and non – violence.

It is an example of the incredible capacity of the human mind to learn lessons from the experience and reform itself in the positive direction. Today a man might be shedding blood for his own pleasure and tomorrow the same man can have his own heart bleeding for others. After all the human civilization itself is the prize of the victory over the animal instincts.

The ultimate message is that the yearning for love, compassion, mercy and peace is the qualifying mark for a creature to be passed as a human is merely a beast in man’s clothing. That is why all the saints and angels stand for the above values.

The life of Ashoka is an inspiration for all to muster courage to learn lesson from the experience of life honestly and allow the heart to change if it so desires for the good and the noble values. We hope that this book may help the positives in you prevail over the negatives.
