    Early Buddhism in the Licchavi era The earliest historical records of the central Himalayan region—more than two hundred Sanskrit inscriptions made by kings of a ruling dynasty who referred to themselves by the name Licchavi—are found in the Nepal valley beginning in C.E. The Nepalese sculptures in the collection of The Metropolitan Museum of Art were created primarily by the Newars, one of Nepal’s many ethnic groups, in the Kathmandu valley, an area encompassing about square miles in central Nepal. Predominantly Buddhist, Newari artists became renowned throughout Asia for the high quality of their work.

According to inscriptions of the Licchavi dynasty, the Buddhist ruler Vrsadeva (fl. CE) founded a monastery at Svayambhu. Most Licchavi foundations have disappeared, but a few, such as the Gum monastery near Sankhu, have survived. Theravada Buddhism has experienced a powerful and far-reaching revival in modern Nepal, especially among the Newar Buddhist laity, many of whom are reorganizing their lives according to its precepts, practices and ideals.

This book documents these far-reaching social and personal transformations and. A Portrait of Buddhism in Licchavi. Nepal-Charles M. Novak. The most noted characteristic of Buddhadharma as practiced by the Newars of Kathmandu Valley is that it has to a large extent preserved those forms of later Indian Buddhism known as Mahayana and Vajrayana in.

Foreword The Licchavi people appear as if from nowhere. Their origins are obscure and their history at most times is equally so. They appeared an the scene in what is now north Bihar at the time of the Buddha, and for a while played a significant part in the politics of eastern India until they were conquered by the expand-ing kingdom of agadha.

To trace the history of Buddhist art in Nepal in Pre-Licchavi period (before C.E.) is quite a difficult task due to lack of documentary evidence.

The history of Nepali art is documented only after C.E., the date of a stone inscription at Changu Narayana. However, the Licchavi period ( C.E.) is said to be the golden age of Nepali art. In traditional Nepalese Buddhism, there are nine special texts which are called the "Nine Dharma Jewels" (Navagrantha), and these are considered the nine books of Buddhism par excellence: Aṣṭasāhasrikā Prajñāpāramitā Sūtra Gaṇḍavyūha Sūtra Ten Stages Sutra Samādhirāja Sūtra Laṅkāvatāra Sūtra Lotus.

Among the curious puzzles of early Nepalese sculpture and architecture are the empty niches of the lovely Licchavi stone caityas that dot the Kathmandu valley. These elegant caityas are fully decorated, often with exquisitely detailed carvings, but the niches where one might suppose the figures of the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas would normally reside, are vacant.

He describes and demonstrates their various types and site plans with the aid of his own state-of-the-art systematic line drawings.
