An exhilarating, spiritually edifying and deeply moving story of one of India's greatest emperors, Ashoka the Great compellingly re-creates the life and times of the great dynasty of the Mauryas with a remarkable authenticity.

Ashoka The Great presents an extraordinary account of the legendary Indian emperor's incredible yet controversial life. This fictional biography delves into Ashoka's quests and moral dilemmas and looks at him not just as a great king, but a spiritual seeker. Originally published in Dutch as a trilogy in separate volumes, it was written between 1937 and 1947 by Dutch scholar Wytze Keuning in Groningen in the Netherlands and has now been brought together and presented in this single volume for the first time. Keuning perfectly fuses facts and thoughts, Mauryan customs and mores, life and reflection on the meaning of life as seen through the vision of Ashoka's gurus and the history of personal influences upon Ashoka that marked his rule and legacy. This and more makes it a rare and distinguished book.
