how did kalinga war change the life of ashoka

 Many people including saints, monks etc died during Kalinga war and others lost their loved ones. Ashoka was sad for killing many innocent people that so he became a Buddist and thus, his life changed. 

  • 3

Ashoka invaded Kalinga in 261 B.C. In Kalinga War, 100,000 people died, 150,000 were wounded and made prisoners of war. 

The sight of such a carnage and massacre of human lives, and the sufferings of the wounded made a deep impression on Ashoka's mind. The unhappiness of the women and the children made him very sad and unhappy. He vowed never to make a war again. He decided to devote his life to the spread of Dharma. Dharmavijaya, and not Digvijaya (victory in all directions), became the goal of Ashoka's life. He was the first emperor in the history of the world to give up war after victory. Thus, the Kalinga War became a turning point in Ashoka's life.

Hope you get the answer.

Annexation of kalinga state was obvious. Which was only state left to subsume into Magadha empire. Other economic reasons like access to ports and south India convinced Ashoka to initiate war againt Kalinga state. Whether, war against Kalinga was not easy as might have been thought. Massive causalities from both sides according to Buddist sourses. At visit to Battle ground, Ashoka deeply influenced by death of lakhs of soldiers. As we know, Ashoka gave up his policy of conquest through war and adopted policy of conquest through Dhamma But, according to some historians, No region left to annex into Magadhan empire except far south which was already under indirect control of Magadha. To strengthen administration & maintain law & order, Ashoka formulated spiritual cum political policy influenced mainly by Buddhist philosophy. It is wrong to say he became Buddhist monk as many history books claim. He maintained huge army, surrounded by queens and coercive messages followed by spiritual is indicating against his drastic transform to pacifist as commonly understood. By doing this, he successfully governed his vast empire stratched from Himalayas in north to river Kaveri in south and Persia in west to Kamroop in east. Kalinga war transformed not only life of Ashoka but also each & every people under his control. You can see the rutine life of king Ashoka by his only one portrait at Buddhist stupa, Kanganahalli, Andhra Pradesh.

Ashoka was sad for killing many innocent people that so he became a Buddist and thus, his life changed. Ashoka invaded Kalinga in 261 B.C. In Kalinga War, 100,000 people died, 150,000 were wounded and made prisoners of war. Thus, the Kalinga War became a turning point in Ashoka's life. Hope  you get the answer. Edict 13 on the Edicts of Ashoka Rock Inscriptions reflect the great remorse the king felt after observing the destruction of Kalinga: The lethal war with Kalinga transformed the vengeful Emperor Ashoka into a stable and peaceful emperor, and he became a patron of Buddhism. The war caused great suffering to the brahmana priests and Buddhist monks, and this in turn brought upon Ashoka much grief and remorse. He therefore abandoned the policy of physical occupation in favour of one of cultural conquest.Ashoka promoted Buddhist expansion by sending monks to surrounding territories to share the teachings of the Buddha. Ashoka fought a war to conquer Kalinga. ... He decided to give up fighting wars after the victory over Kalinga, because he was horrified by the violence and bloodshed in that. He is the only king in the history of the world who gave up conquest after winning a war. A wave of conversion began, and Buddhism spread not only through India, but also internationally.  Some scholars believe that many Buddhist practices were simply absorbed into the tolerant Hindu faith.
