ASOKAS AS A PREACHER

Asoka was convinced. He at once bowed low in token of his submission. He felt elevated and light. The rumblings of his mind were subdued then miraculously. That celestial symphony filled his whole-being, and as a result of which, all the weight of anguish sitting tight on his heart, since the Kalinga War, vanished. Soon and silent. His 'soka' was dissolved and 'ananda' overflowed mysteriously. He was soka in Kalinga, and Asoka in Pataliputra once again. Thanks to the divine healing touch of Upagupta that made him appear like a Messiah entering into the promised land.

Asoka was changed and emerged as an enlightened God-man ready to save life, than to take one. He was indeed Asoka, literally i.e., man minus sorrow. Forthwith, he pronounced his faith in Buddhism. To celebrate this momentous transformation, he declared to the whole world, that he would not seek any conquest, any further, by war, or violence - he eschewed military glory. He determined to create, finest kind of righteous empire not over 'palm and pine', but over the minds and hearts of people across the seas and up above the skies.
