    Two thousand three hundred years ago, the great king, Ashoka, united most of the Indian subcontinent and embraced the ethics of Buddha Shakyamuni in order to pacify both himself and his empire. Ashoka left his decrees in the form of inscriptions in granite slabs and pillars all over the empire that have survived to the present day. In one of them he wrote: “The king honors both the ascetics and the householders of all religions and he honors them with gifts and honors of various kinds. But the King does not value gifts and honors as much as he values this: that there should be growth in the essentials of all religions.

The king desires that all should be well-learned in the good doctrines of other religions.” Read more...
