Great Rulers of India
Great Rulers of India
Description
Back of The Book

In this Pancharatna volume we have included Chandragupta Maurya, the dynasty, and Ashoka, his grandson, who at the zenith of his conquest saw the futility of violence and had the courage to renounce it. Of Ashoka, H.G. Wells writes in his book, 'Short History of the world: such was Ashoka, the greatest of kings. He was far in advance of his age.

The Gupta age is considered to be the golden age of India. To Samudra Gupta goes the credit of spreading the Gupta empire.

The forth book in the volume is on the life of Emperor Harsha, who is remembered till this day as a great ruler, not only because he was a brave military leader, but also because he was of noble impulses. This based on Harshacharita by Banabhatta and the account given by the Chinese traveller, Hiuen-Tsang.

The fifth book is on the life of Krishnadeva Raya, the greatest emperor of Vijayanagara, Domingos Paes, the Portuguese traveller, described the capital city as 'the best provided city in the world'. Of Krishnadeva Raya, he wrote, 'He is the most perfect king that would be, cheerful of disposition and very merry.'

Testimonials

I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
