A portion of John Green’s Crash Course video is on Asoka, Hinduism and Buddhism. While a section of the textbook also talks about Asoka and his introduction of religion to India. The reason that Asoka is so famous is that he introduced a religion where it gave not only Asoka but the whole country a new point of view. This move is significant because, in both the video and the text, all they relate to Asoka is the introduction of Buddhism. Asoka’s introduction of Buddhism is so important that John Green spent all his time talking about him and did not even mention the founder of the Mauryan Empire and its heir. In short, the video and the text are connected by Asoka, and the religion he introduced to India.
