DOI : 10.3406/asie.1999.1157 This is an English version of a paper read (in French) at the international conference "La Sérinde terre d'échanges, art, religion, commerce, du premier au dixième siècle," organized by École du Louvre, Bibliothèque nationale de France, Musée Guimet, CNRS and École Pratique des Hautes Études, Paris, February 13- 15, 1996.
Buddhism arose in northeast India in the sixth century b.c.After that Buddhism crossed the Indian borders and the domain of Buddha preachers stretched to Kashmir and Qandehar and Kabul from the Indian northwestern borders. In a book written by Alexander Polyhistor 80 or 60 years before the birth of Christ he speaks about Buddhism, its relation with Iran and specially Balkh and gives detailed account about Shamans in Balkh. In the same manner that the Iranian scholars contributed greatly to the propagation of Islam after its birth, many centuries before Islam they propagated Buddhism in the eastern part of the Persian empire and wrote many books about it.Later on the religion spread to the Jeyhoon Sea and greater Khorassan and Balkh and Bukhara and eventually to the Persian empire. What we can gather from Chinese textbooks proves that the propagation of Buddhism in that country 67 years before the birth of Christ was due to the exertions of Parsi missionaries and monks.as the result of the teaching of the historical Buddha Śākyamuni, who died about 483 b.c.During the years after his death his followers were active in establishing the canonical scriptures and the religious rules for daily life among Buddhist communities.
