Asoka the Great: Positive Theocracies Part 1(B)
August 30, 2010
Continued from Part A
The first of two films about religious leaders who have had a positive impact on the lives of their subjects, asking what made them so different from the myriad of psychotics that ruled in the name of faith.
Part A: looks briefly at Asoka (or Ahoska) and provides a beginners guide to the Buddha and Buddhism. I apologise for my cold mauling the Sanskrit language.
Part B: looks more at Asoka, his edicts and the kind of ruler he was.
