Description

Buddhism in its institutional form followed a pattern of integration, organization and the spread of influence in concurrence to the early history of ancient societies across the sub-continent. The entire process can be unified into a singular metaphor of the wheel of Dharma that the Buddha had turned during his first sermon at the Deer Park in Sarnath. The Integration of various cultures can be seen as spokes of the wheel held by the organization of early Buddhist Sangha, the swivel. The growth of trade and polity that increased patronage could be seen as the motion of the wheel, which slowed down by the growth of local cults, when Buddhism slowly dissipated to isolation and eventual abandonment.
