Buddhism is one of the major religions in India. It is a very peaceful religion and many across the world follow it. Although Gautama Buddha founded Buddhism, it gained immense popularity when King Ashoka embraced it after the bloody Kalinga war. He took a vow never to harm any living being again, and worked towards spreading the religion throughout the region during his time. Buddhism thus spread to the neighboring countries of India such as Sri Lanka, China, and Tibet.
