Abstract

The rock edicts of king Aśoka (third century bc) show that he had already paved the way for the expansion of Buddhism outside India. Subsequently Buddhist missionaries took Buddhism to Central Asia, China, Korea, Japan and Tibet in the North, and to Burma, Ceylon, Thailand, Cambodia and other countries in the South. This helped in spreading Indian culture to these countries.
