The Edicts of Asoka
The Edicts of Asoka
Description
About the Book:

Asoka's edicts engraved on pillars, rock surfaces and tablets have been found in almost every region of India except the far south, and as far west as Kandahar in present day Afghanistan. These edicts are autobiographical and are primary authority in describing Asoka's life. Time has been required to ascertain the true meaning of the epigraphic records but the difficulties have now been solved for the most part although some still remain and we are able to obtain a fairly complete notion of Asoka's positive teachings and the gradual development of ideas which his great political power enabled him to impose upon a large section of the mankind.

The importance of these edicts also lies in the history of Indian art, in the fact that, the monolithic pillars bearing these edicts have survived the ravages of time in widely separated parts of the subcontinent and the animals which form the crowing feature of these columns comprise the first important group of Indian stone sculptures.

Testimonials
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
