Description
 
The origin and spread of Buddhism has been a landmark in the history of Greater India (Maha Bharata or Brhattara Bharata) the boundaries of which covered a large part of Asia. As stated earlier, Shakyamuni, the Buddha, was the inheritor of an ancient, rich and varied cultural tradition of a very high order and he formulated and established a new culture out of it which was theoretically enlightening and practically redeeming from the labyrinth of suffering, imperfection, impermanence and other vicissitudes of life. He reconstructed an old path, as the Samyutta Nikaya puts it, a middle path which avoided all extremes. In his ideas, doctrines, and practices the proto-Vedic view of Reality and way of life blossomed forth in a fresh and invigorating form which attracted the elite and the masses alike.
