The 16th century Tibetan Buddhist author Taranatha states that Chanakyaone of Bindusara's "great lords", destroyed the nobles and kings of 16 towns and made him master of all the territory between the western and the eastern sea Arabian Sea and the Bay of Bengal.
According to some historians, this implies conquest of Deccan by Bindusara, while others believe that this only refers to suppression of revolts. Besides, Ashoka's inscriptions found in southern India do not mention anything about Bindusara's conquest of Deccan southern India.
Based on this, Sen concludes that Bindusara did not extend the Mauryan empire, but managed to retain the territories he inherited from Chandragupta. Krishna Reddy, on the other hand, argues that Ashoka's inscriptions would have boasted about his conquest of southern India, had he captured Deccan.
Reddy, therefore, believes that the Mauryan empire extended up to Mysore during Bindusara's reign. According to him, the southernmost kingdoms were not a part of the Mauryan empire, but probably acknowledged its suzerainty. His theory is based on the fact that the ancient Tamil literature alludes to Vamba Moriyar Mauryan conquestalthough it does not provide any details about the Mauryan expeditions.
The Emperor refused to provide any weapons or chariots for Ashoka's expedition.
The devatas deities then miraculously brought him soldiers and weapons. When his army reached Takshashila, the residents of the city approached him. They told him that they only opposed Bindusara's oppressive ministers; they had no problem with the Emperor or the prince.
Ashoka then entered the city without opposition, and the devatas declared that he would rule the entire earth one day. Shortly before Bindusara's death, there was a second revolt in Takshashila. This time, Sushima was sent to quell the rebellion, but he failed in the task. It mentions a legend about Chanakya's death: Chanakya asked the emperor to appoint a man named Subandhu as one of his ministers.
However, Subandhu wanted to become a higher minister and grew jealous of Chanakya. So, he told Bindusara that Chanakya had cut open the belly of his mother. After confirming the story with the nurses, Bindusara started hating Chanakya.
As a result, Chanakya, who was already a very old man by this time, retired and decided to starve himself to death. Meanwhile, Bindusara came to know about the detailed circumstances of his birth, and implored Chanakya to resume his ministerial duties.
When Chanakya refused to oblige, the Emperor ordered Subandhu to pacify him. Subandhu, while pretending to appease Chanakya, burned him to death. Shortly after this, Subandhu himself had to retire and become a monk due to Chanakya's curse.
It names two officials — Khallataka and Radhagupta — who helped his son Ashoka became the emperor after his death. Bindusara requested Antiochus to send him sweet winedried figs and a sophist. This king is usually identified as Bindusara. The Buddhist texts Samantapasadika and Mahavamsa suggest that Bindusara followed Brahmanismcalling him a "Brahmana bhatto" "votary of the Brahmanas".
However, they are silent on Bindusara's faith, and there is no evidence to show that Bindusara was a Jain. Bindusara asked him to assess the ability of the princes to be the next emperor, as the two watched the princes play.
Pingalavatsa recognized Ashoka as the most suitable prince, but did not give a definitive answer to the Emperor, since Ashoka was not Bindusara's favourite son.
He, however, told Queen Subhadrangi of Ashoka's future greatness.You need to redo your grammar classes before preaching to others. You clearly have no command over the language. You need to have a word with yourself before you start questioning someone whose mother tongue is English.
