Storyboard Text

  • Early Life
  • Hello! I am Ashoka!
  • While he Ruled
  • I have been at war so much! But at least I expanded my rule!
  • While He Ruled
  • Ashoka was first introduced to the world in 304 BC. His full name was Devanampriya Priyadarshi Samrat Ashoka. The one who created Mauryan Dynasty,Chandragupta Maurya, was his grandfather. His parents were Bindusara and Maharni Dharma who were emperors at the time.
  • Greatest Achievements
  • My other creations are still there too!
  • Ashoka was ascended to the throne in 272 BC but finally became king in 269 BC. During the first eight years of him being king he was constantly at war. He expanded his rule across the Indian subcontinent, including Iran, Afghanistan, Bangladesh,and Burmese!
  • Greatest Achivements
  • One of Ashoka's major battles was the one against Kalinga which killed over 100,000 soldiers and civillians and over 150,000 people deported. After that war he couldn't stand how many people were killed and injured so he promised to never fight again and develope off of a non-violence religion. So he started practicing Buddhism and made it the state religion!
  • What Can We Learn?
  • Ashoka is believed to have built 84,000 stupas to pit the memories of Buddha and they also served as places for meditation. These were built across south Asia and central Asia for all Buddhist monks. Also the Lion Capital and the Ashoka column that he oversaw are still in its original place today.
  • Ashoka's 'Ashoka Chakra' or 'the wheel of righteousness' that had a lot of memories of the Mauryan Emperor on it was adopted by the Indian flag. He also made the pillar edicts or Ashokstambha, measuring 40 to 50 ft. high, and are in all places bordering the Mauryan empire. It reached as far as Nepal, Pakistan, and Afghanistan. Only ten of them are still standing today.
  • If you want to see an awesome sight there are my ten pillars!!
  • There is also my wheel it was adopted by the Indian flag!
  • Ashoka once said," He who does reverence to his own sect, while disparaging the sects of others with intent to enhance the glory of his own sect, by such conduct inflicts the severest injury on his own sect." One thing I can learn from this quote is that I should always be fair to others, even if it makes me look bad. it is not okay to make others look bad just to make ourselves look good.
