    After the Kalinga war

    Ashoka embraced Buddhism after the Kalinga war. Emperor Ashoka was the first ruler in ancient India who embraced Buddhism. Ashoka was full remorse for the terrible loss of human lives in the Kalinga War. He found solace in the doctrine of non-violence of Buddhism.
    After the battle of Kalinga Ashoka went to a tour of the city. Ashoka could see nothing except burnt housed and scattered dead body. This is the first time in Ashoka life, when he realized the consequence of wars and battles.
