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.'

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
