Buddhacharita is an epic poem in the Sanskrit mahakavya style on the life of Gautama Buddha. Asvaghosa was an Indian philosopher-poet, born in Saketa in northern India to a Brahmin family. He is believed to have been the first Sanskrit dramatist, and is considered the greatest Indian poet prior to Kalidasa. He was the most famous in a group of Buddhist court writers, whose epics rivaled the contemporary Ramayana.
