Chandragupta Maurya is an important king in the history of ancient India. Before Chandragupta took over the throne, Alexander invaded the northwestern Indian subcontinent, and left further propaganda in 324 BCE because of a rebellion in his army, leading to areas of the Indian subcontinent ruled by Indo-Greek and local rulers. The inheritance was directly handled by Chandragupta. Chandragupta, along with his mentor Chanakya (also known as Kautilya and Vishnu Gupta, who was also the prime minister of Barley Chandra Gupta), created a new empire, implemented the principles of the Rajyachakra, built a large army and The boundaries of the empire continued to expand.

Chandragupta Maurya's Life

Chandragupta Maurya was the son of the king of the small republic of Nepal, a valley in the ancient region of ancient India after his father was killed and took over his kingdom, his mother had moved with him to the Patli son, where he met Chanakya. According to the evidence of medieval records, Maurya originated from Suryavanshi Mandhata. Maurya Kshatriyas have been called in Buddhist literature. The Mahavansh states that Chandragupta was born of Comori (Maurya) that. In divyavadaan, Bindusara calls himself the idol-worshiper Kshatriya.
Emperor Ashoka also describes himself as a Kshatriya. North India was divided into eight small kingdoms from Mahaparinibban Sutta in the 5th century BC. The ruler of the Moriya Pippalivan is a caste system of the democratic system. Pippilivan BC In the sixth century, it was called from Rummindei in the Terai of Nepal to the Kasaya region of modern Deoria district. Due to the expansion of the Magadha Empire, their independent status soon ended. It was for this reason that Chandragupta was reared in contact with the peasants, shepherds, and lubricants. According to tradition, he was very sharp in childhood and ruled over them as an emperor of young boys. On one such occasion, Chanakya's eyesight fell on him, and consequently, Chandragupta went to Taxila where he was given a royal education. According to the Greek historian Justin, Sandrocattus (Chandragupta) was an ordinary man.

Chandragupta Maurya in the Battleground

At the time of Alexander's invasion, almost all of North India was ruled by Dhanananda. The Nanda emperors were unpleasant in public due to their low origin and autocracy. Chanakya and Chandragupta decided to exorcise the Nanda dynasty by resorting to the dissatisfaction prevailing in the kingdom. For his purpose, Chanakya and Chandragupta managed a huge Vijayavahini. In Brahmin texts, Nandamulan is credited to Chanakya.

According to Justin, Chandragupta was a bandit and after successful small and big attacks, he decided to build an empire. It has been said in the Arthashastra that recruitment of soldiers should be done from the categories of thieves, mlecchas, Atal Vikas and weapons. It is known from Mudrarakshas that Chandragupta made a treaty with King Parvatak of the Himalayan region. Chandragupta's army must have been Shaka, Yavan, Kirat, Kamboj, Parsik, and Vahlik. According to Plutarch, Sandrocottus conquered the whole of India by a huge corps of 6,00,000 soldiers. India was under the authority of Chandragupta by Justin's opinion.

Chandragupta first established his position in Punjab. His freedom war against the wilderness probably started shortly after Alexander's death. According to Justin, after Alexander's death, India broke the bondage of slavery under the leadership of Sandrocottus and killed the Yavan governors. Chandragupta campaigned against the Yavanas around 323 BC. They would have started in the beginning, but they had complete success in this campaign in 317 BC. Or it would have been found thereafter, because in the same year the ruler of West Punjab, Kshatrap Eudemus, left India with his armies. Nothing can be said in detail about Chandragupta's Yavanayudha. With this success, he got the provinces of Punjab and Sindh.
Chandragupta Maurya probably had an important war with Dhanananda. It is clear in the circles of Justin and Plutarch that at the time of Alexander's India campaign Chandragupta provoked him to wage war against the Nandas, but the behavior of Kishore Chandragupta enraged Yavanvijeta. Indian literary traditions suggest that Nandaraja was extremely intolerant towards Chandragupta and Chanakya. A mention of the Mahavansh Tika suggests that Chandragupta initially invaded the central part of the Nandasamrajya, but he soon realized his error and new invasions began from the frontier regions. He eventually surrounded Pataliputra and killed Dhanananda.

Subsequently, it appears that Chandragupta expanded his empire to the south as well. The ancient Tamil writer named Mamulanar has referred to the Mauryan invasions up to the Podiyil hills of the Tinneveli district. This is confirmed by other ancient Tamil writers and texts. The aggressive army consisted of warrior Koshar people. The aggressors came from Konkan via the Ellilamalai hills to Kongu (Coimbatore) district and from here to the Podiyil hills. Unfortunately in the above mentions, the name of the hero of this Mauryavahini is not obtained. However, the prediction of the first Mauryan emperor Chandragupta from 'Vumba Moriyar' seems more consistent.

The last battle of Chadrangupta was with Alexander's ex-commander and his contemporary Syrian Greek Emperor Seleucus. The mention of the Greek historian Justin proves that after Alexander's death, Seleucus inherited the eastern part of his master's vast empire. Seleucus proceeded to complete Alexander's Indian conquest, but India's political situation had changed by now. Almost the entire region was led by a powerful ruler. Seleucus 305 BC Appeared almost along the banks of the Indus. Greek authors do not describe this war in detail.

But it seems that Seleucus, the face of Chandragupta's power, had to bow down. As a result, Seleucus made a treaty by giving Chandragupta a Yavanakumari in marriage and the provinces of Aria (Herat), Arachosia (Kandahar), Paropanisadai (Kabul) and Gedrosiyya (Balochistan). In return, Chandragupta presented 500 elephants to Seleucus. The above-mentioned provinces under the rule of Chandragupta Maurya and his successors have been proved by Ashoka's bilingual article from Kandahar. In order to provide stability to the friendship relationship thus established, Seleucus sent an envoy named Megasthenes to the court of Chandragupta. This account is proof that Chandragupta would have been able to expand the empire through almost complete royalty wars.

Inscription (Shravanabelagola) depicting the arrival of the last Shrutakevali Bhadrabahu Swami and Emperor Chandragupta.

According to inscriptions found from Shravanabelagola, Chandragupta became a Jain-saint in his last days. Chandra-Gupta became the last crown-holder, followed by no other crown-ruler (ruler), Digambar-muni. Therefore, Chandra-Gupta has an important place in Jainism. Swami went to Shravanabelagol with Bhadrabahu. While there, he sacrificed his body by fasting. The hill on which they lived in Shravanabelagol is named Chandragiri and there is also a temple named 'Chandraguptabasti' built there.
