Meanwhile, Chanakya came to know that from some time; Charumitra practiced black magic on Dharma. Susima hated Chanakya as he always favored Ashoka over him while Mahamatya Khalatak was always jealous of him as Bindusara always favored Chanakya over him in the matters related to Magadha. So Helena joined Charumitra; Sushim and Khattak. Siyamak also joined in this mission as he believed that his dear ones Justin and Noor had died due to Chanakya.
They all killed Chanakya who in his last breath tells Ashoka that the only way to serve his motherland is to become the Emperor of Magadha by any means. Thus; Ashoka takes a pledge to punish the culprits and fulfill Chanakya's last wish of becoming the Emperor of Magadha by any means. Meanwhile, to end the tyranny of Keechak, Ashok heads for Takshashila. On the way to Takshashila, Ashoka's ship is attacked by Keechak's men on Susima's request. Ashoka jumps into the sea to save himself and drowns.
Kaurwaki, the princess of Calingh, who was also on her way to Takshashila, saw Ashoka drowning in the sea and saves him. Later on, both fall in love and Kaurwaki takes him to a temple and she ties a sacred thread around his hand, as a symbol of her love for him and her wish to be accepted as his wife, but Ashoka never realizes it. Later-on, Ashoka returns to Patliputra and in the meantime, found out that his own family members were involved in the death of Chanakya. But in the process of making the criminals punished for their sins, tables turned on him making Ashok attack on Bindusara and injuring Susima.
So, in a fit of rage, Bindusara exiled him from Patliputra. For the protection of her son, Dharma went with him along with her newborn Vitta legally named vittashoka and the trio left Patliputra and settled in Ujjain.
That marked the end of the session 10 years later A ruthless Ashoka in the name of Chand along with Dharma and his brother Vit have been settled in Ujjain in the household of the merchant Dhanisharam who resides there with his daughter, Devi. In Kalinga, Kaurwaki's only ambition of life is to meet Ashoka and makes many futile attempts for the same angering Jagannath. Bindusara has grown more cruel and harsh within these years while with the help of black magic, Charumitra had made Susima stronger than ever.
After some days, in a wrestling match, in which Ashoka and Susima are fighting, Dharma comes with Vit and stops the fight. Everyone recognizes them.
Bindusara forgives them and asks them to return to Patliputra. Dharma and Vit return to Patliputra. Ashoka did not follow Bindusara's orders. He roams in a jungle and meets Kaurvaki. In these years, Dharma too has turned clever and bold enough to face internal politics. Ashoka sees Devi and her father being tortured by Nirankush and his men and saves them but fails to capture Nirankush.
Ashoka returns to Patliputra and reveals to Bindusara that slavery was in practice in these 10 years. He also reveals that a man named Kondna is behind this. One night, Siamak secretly goes to meet Kondna. It is revealed that Kondna is none other than Helena. Ashoka sets out to capture Kondna using Nirankush. Ashoka fails to capture Kondna and Nirankush escapes.
However, he got a clue that Kondna is a woman. Ashoka got a clue from Nirankush that the woman's name starts from 'H'. He finds that Kondna is late Helena. Nobody believes it.
Ashoka is sure that Kondna is Helena. He sets out to capture her and bring her in front of everyone.
Ashoka, with Lasandra Helena's enemy , manages to expose Helena and forces Siamak to kill her. Later, the marriage preparations of Ashoka and Kaurwaki begin.
Just then, Dharma and Devi meet an astrologer and he says that this marriage is full of obstacles and many innocent people will be killed in the Kalinga war. Due to fear, Dharma decides that Ashoka should marry Devi, instead of Kaurwaki. Jagannath tells Bindusar that Ashok can marry Kaurwaki only when Bindusar gives the throne of Magadh to him after the marriage.
Bindusar agrees. The chronicle is believed to be compiled from Atthakatha and other sources around the 3rd or 4th century CE. King Dhatusena 4th century had ordered that the Dipavamsa be recited at the Mahinda festival held annually in Anuradhapura. Numismatic research suggests that this symbol was the symbol of king Ashoka, his personal " Mudra ". Building on traditional accounts, early scholars regarded Ashoka as a primarily Buddhist monarch who underwent a conversion to Buddhism and was actively engaged in sponsoring and supporting the Buddhist monastic institution.
Some scholars have tended to question this assessment. Romila Thappar writes about Ashoka that "We need to see him both as a statesman in the context of inheriting and sustaining an empire in a particular historical period, and as a person with a strong commitment to changing society through what might be called the propagation of social ethics.
In his edicts, Ashoka expresses support for all the major religions of his time: Buddhism , Brahmanism , Jainism , and Ajivikaism , and his edicts addressed to the population at large there are some addressed specifically to Buddhists; this is not the case for the other religions generally focus on moral themes members of all the religions would accept.
For example, Amartya Sen writes, "The Indian Emperor Ashoka in the third century BCE presented many political inscriptions in favor of tolerance and individual freedom, both as a part of state policy and in the relation of different people to each other". In one edict he belittles rituals, and he banned Vedic animal sacrifices; these strongly suggest that he at least did not look to the Vedic tradition for guidance.
Furthermore, many edicts are expressed to Buddhists alone; in one, Ashoka declares himself to be an " upasaka ", and in another he demonstrates a close familiarity with Buddhist texts. He erected rock pillars at Buddhist holy sites, but did not do so for the sites of other religions.
He also used the word "dhamma" to refer to qualities of the heart that underlie moral action; this was an exclusively Buddhist use of the word. However, he used the word more in the spirit than as a strict code of conduct. Romila Thappar writes, "His dhamma did not derive from divine inspiration, even if its observance promised heaven. It was more in keeping with the ethic conditioned by the logic of given situations.
His logic of Dhamma was intended to influence the conduct of categories of people, in relation to each other. Especially where they involved unequal relationships. Instead, Ashoka's reason for adopting non-violence appears much more personal.
The Ashokavadana shows that the main source of Ashoka's conversion and the acts of welfare that followed are rooted instead in intense personal anguish at its core, from a wellspring inside himself rather than spurred by a specific event. It thereby illuminates Ashoka as more humanly ambitious and passionate, with both greatness and flaws. This Ashoka is very different from the "shadowy do-gooder" of later Pali chronicles.
All his inscriptions present him as compassionate and loving. In the Kalinga rock edits, he addresses his people as his "children" and mentions that as a father he desires their good.
One also gets some primary information about the Kalinga War and Ashoka's allies plus some useful knowledge on the civil administration. The Ashoka Pillar at Sarnath is the most notable of the relics left by Ashoka. Made of sandstone, this pillar records the visit of the emperor to Sarnath, in the 3rd century BCE.
It has a four-lion capital four lions standing back to back , which was adopted as the emblem of the modern Indian republic. The lion symbolises both Ashoka's imperial rule and the kingship of the Buddha. In translating these monuments, historians learn the bulk of what is assumed to have been true fact of the Mauryan Empire.
It is difficult to determine whether or not some events ever actually happened, but the stone etchings clearly depict how Ashoka wanted to be thought of and remembered. Recently scholarly analysis determined that the three major foci of debate regarding Ashoka involve the nature of the Maurya empire; the extent and impact of Ashoka's pacifism; and what is referred to in the Inscriptions as dhamma or dharma , which connotes goodness, virtue, and charity.
The dhamma of the Edicts has been understood as concurrently a Buddhist lay ethic, a set of politico-moral ideas, a "sort of universal religion", or as an Ashokan innovation. On the other hand, it has also been interpreted as an essentially political ideology that sought to knit together a vast and diverse empire.
Scholars are still attempting to analyse both the expressed and implied political ideas of the Edicts particularly in regard to imperial vision , and make inferences pertaining to how that vision was grappling with problems and political realities of a "virtually subcontinental, and culturally and economically highly variegated, 3rd century BCE Indian empire.
Nonetheless, it remains clear that Ashoka's Inscriptions represent the earliest corpus of royal inscriptions in the Indian subcontinent, and therefore prove to be a very important innovation in royal practices. The identification with Ashoka is confirmed by the similar relief from Kanaganahalli inscribed "Raya Asoka". These legends were found in Buddhist textual sources such as the text of Ashokavadana.
The Ashokavadana is a subset of a larger set of legends in the Divyavadana, though it could have existed independently as well. Following are some of the legends narrated in the Ashokavadana about Ashoka: 1 One of the stories talks about an event that occurred in a past life of Ashoka, when he was a small child named Jaya.
Once when Jaya was playing on the roadside, the Buddha came by. The young child put a handful of earth in the Buddha's begging bowl as his gift to the saint and declared his wish to one day become a great emperor and follower of the Buddha. Ashoka wanted to become king and so he got rid of the heir by tricking him into entering a pit filled with live coals.
He is said to have subjected his ministers to a test of loyalty and then have of them killed for failing it. He is said to have burnt his entire harem to death when certain women insulted him.
He is supposed to have derived sadistic pleasure from watching other people suffer.
