Description About the author Contents
The volume begins with a unique Japanese scroll of Sudhan's pilgrimage in diaphanous colors. Ajanta and Transfandhara and the socalled Padmapani at Ajanta have been newly identified. The four past Buddhas include Bhama Konakamana of Bamiyan as the immediate predecessor of Sakamuni. The dual names of the Guptal emperors, and their trans oceanic trade has been clarified for the first time. The role of Tamil merchants in the construction of Jerusalem in the tenth century BC down to Champa and Jave in the 4th century CE has been narrated. New light is shed on the stupa from Vedic texts. Asoka and Khotan enunciates the global vision of the emperor and clarifies the multiple legends in Tibetan and Chinese sources on the concept of bhumiputra. The Bower manuscript fell down along with a cow in Kucha and heralded Central Asian studies. The cow and manuscript have been clarified as the vaitarani ritual. Two panels from Khotan have been identified.
