Vegetarianism: The Story So Far

Ashoka: the fourth of a fifteen part monthly radio history of vegetarianism by Ian McDonald. This month: Ashoka Maurya ruled perhaps one human being in three - the biggest empire in the world. After his bloodiest battlefield, only the southern tip of India remained. But instead of conquering it, he turned to Buddhism, created sanctuaries, banned slaughter, proclaimed an empire of compassion and non-violence, and tried to change India forever. Ian McDonald travels to his monuments and inscriptions to discover more. Visit veghist.org for more information. [Repeated Monday 10.30am.]
