Buddhism the one of the most prominent religion of the world has failed in India its birthplace. 1. It has failed to survive as a state religion. 2. It has failed to survive as a way of life and currently India has only 0.5 to 1 % buddhists here. Buddhism was heavily propagated by one of the biggest Emperors of India and of the world Samrat Ashok. But if you see now its presence in India is negligible . Some people say that it was extinguished from India because of Brahmins and Kshatriyas, some say that the Muslim invasion was responsible for it, but it doesn't appear like that because Chinese Buddhists are also turning atheists without any violence. Moreover mere violence can't kick a religion out of the practice, it must have some socio-economical and spiritual factors behind it. Swami Vivekanand said :- There must be some other reasons except violence for this, What you guys say?
