Chapter Summary

This index contains a list of places relevant to the spread of Buddhism and the factors such as geographical, social, political, economic, philosophical, religious, and even linguistic environments played a major role in the journey. The entries are arranged in alphabetical order. Esoteric Buddhism promoted itself as a prime protector of the state, and as an excellent curator of physical health. Still, in India, it could not stop the gradual shift of the traditional supporters of Buddhism to Hinduism, a shift that dried out the financial resources of the monasteries, and undermined their existence.

Keywords: Buddhism; linguistic environments
