International Conference on ‘Buddhist monasteries in South Asia and China’ organised by SBAA (Society for Buddhist Arts and Archaeology)
November, 2015, New Delhi, India
Buddhism began to spread to neighbouring countries during the reign of Mauryan King Asoka in the third century BCE. There existed two missions in opposite directions. Theravad sutras written in Pali language spread southward to Sri Lanka, Thailand, Burma and Indonesia. Mahayan sutras spread northward to Central Asia, China, Korea and Japan; these Sanskrit scriptures were first translated into Central Asian languages and then into Chinese. The Chinese Tripitaka is the most complete collection of extant Buddhist scriptures; its influence reached beyond China to Korea and Japan. During the seventh century Buddhism spread from India to Tibet. As sutras were systematically translated into local language, Tibetan Buddhism came into being gradually.
Relics of Buddhism of different stages have been found in China in the shape of monasteries, stupas, Buddha images and ritual implements which present a good combination of Chinese and western elements. Buddhist sculptures are in the form of grottos carvings, painted clay figures etc.
