Buddhism originated in about 6th century B.C. and spread to eastern and central parts of India by c.5th-4th century B.C. The epigraphic and literary sources suggest that it reached the North-West by the 3rd century B.C. or at least during the reign of the Mauryan King Asoka (c.273-236 B.C.). The north-western section of the Indian subcontinent was one of the main areas where foreigners felt the impact of Buddhism, and through this region the religion spread to Central Asia and China. A proper knowledge of Buddhism in the North-West is a desideratum. This book is an attempt to fulfill the need.
