Also, why did Lord Buddha select peripheral region of Varanasi, Sarnath, for delivering his first sermon, particularly when he attained enlightenment in Bodh Gaya? It is on record that he was well conversant with Rajgriha, Pataliputra and other places of Bihar. And since when Saivism became an integral part of the Varanasi culture?

Book Description Aryan Books International, 2009. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. First edition. Varanasi is not only one of the oldest living cities of the world, but is also a model reflecting a comprehensive picture of our rich cultural heritage. The undisrupted occupation of Kashi region since ancient times till this date, played a vital role in the make up of modern Varanasi. The unique qualities of this settlement raise a number of questions, like, how old is Varanasi?

All these questions are deeply rooted in the history of this holy city, which are attempted in this book on account of the archaeological findings. Ancient remains of Varanasi which were unearthed at Kashi-Rajghat about four decades ago, could demonstrate that this holy city was inhabited around ninth century BC, and had attained status of a promising urban center by third century BC Sarnath, the place of the first sermon of Gautam Buddha, retains archaeological remains from the time of the Maurya King Asoka. But, excavations at Aktha reveal that this settlement had greater antiquity than has been obtained at Kashi-Rajghat. It also reveal the factors which helped make up of Sarnath as the first place for preaching the teachings by Lord Buddha. The first colonization of Kashi region, on account of the excavated findings could be pushed back to about four/five hundred years. This bridged the gap between the antiquity ascertained by ancient texts and earlier archaeological records of Varanasi. Besides the Risipattana concept attached with Sarnath in the Buddhist literature is also corroborated by Aktha. CONTENTS: Preface; 1. Theme and Backdrop 2. Interpretative Strategies 3. Recent Excavations in Varanasi 4. The Later Vedic Period 5. The Janapada Period 6. The Maurya-sunga Period 7. The Kushana Period 8. The Late Kushana Period 9.
