Central Institute of Higher Tibetan Studies, Sarnath Varanasi 1990. 1000 copies only.
Afghanistan, comprising a part of Gandhara in ancient India and Eastern Iran, was once a land of Buddhism. The large number of Buddhist stupas and monasteries which one finds today scattered all over the country are reminiscent of ancient glory of Buddhism. These are now laid bare by the recent archaeological explorations by the foreign scholars.
Professor C.S. Upasak, formerly Director of the Nava Nalanda Mahavihara, Nalanda, with a substantive grant of Fellowship offered by the Indian Council of Historical Research toured various Buddhist ancient sites in different structures. The Afghanistan tour greatly inspired Professor Upasak and he made an exploratory survey of these ancient Buddhist sites. He also collected lot of evidence from Buddhist literature canonical and post-canonical to make his study wider and more realistic. Further he has made use of studies made by French and German missions. The result of author's exploratory studies "Historical of Buddhism in Afghanistan". This is perhaps the first systematic work on the history of Buddhism in Afghanistan which was once a very influential region in the Central Asia in the oast with which the ancient Tibet had very close socio-cultural interaction.
