To extend the boundaries of his empire waged Asoka one of the bloodiest wars India has ever seen with the neighbouring kingdom of Kalinga, leaving it ravaged and devastated. Confronted by the Asoka was overcome by remorse. He renounced the path of war and dedicated his life to spreading the light of Budddhism across the world.
