Description
About the Book

Becoming an emperor is not easy especially when there are enemies every where and no one you can trust

India , third century BC. A land ruled by powerful dynasties, each fighting for supremacy over the other, unaware that a conqueror from Greece has arrived at the country’s doorstep in a bid to establish his dominion over the entire known world .

In the east, the Magadhan empire is ruled by the Nanadas , a clan driven by a limitless hunger for power and given to violence and abuse . from the embers of their lust and avarice a boy is born - a boy named Moriya , raised by a tribe of peacock - tamers and oblivious of the legacy that is rightfully his … until the day he is sought out by chanakaya , while a wily political strategist looking for vengeance against the ruthless rulers of Magadha . under the training and tutelage and of his shrewd adviser , the tentative young man , now christened Chandragupta , makes his way across the vast plains of bharatvarsha to meet the famed invader Alexander and build and army of his own. But being a warrior prince, he finds, comes at a heavy price - of trust and loyalty and perhaps even his life.

This is the story of a youth who must battle supreme odds - both within and without to fulfil destiny a s one of the greatest emperors the world has ever known . this is the story of Chandragupta Maura.

Testimonials
I received my Manjushri statue today and I can't put in words how delighted I am with it! Thank you very much. It didn't take very long to get here (the UK) - I wasn't expecting it for a few more weeks. Your support team is very good at providing customer service, too. I must conclude that you have an excellent company.
Mark, UK.
A very comprehensive site for a company with a good reputation.
Robert, UK

I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
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 !
Steven, USA
Great Website! fast, easy and interesting!
