Annotation: The author reconsiders some well-known facts about Dark Ages and offers a consistent picture of the events in the history of Eurasia. According to the received picture, the Buddhist"s role in the events of The Migration Period (German loanword Vlkerwanderung) was underestimated.

Emperor of the Maurya dynasty Ashoka the Great, who ruled almost all of the Indian subcontinent from  268 to 232 BC,[1] established the relationship between Buddhism and the state.

According to the Mahavamsa,[2] in the 17th year of his reign, at the end of the Third Buddhist Council, Ashoka sent Buddhist missionaries to nine parts of the world (eight parts of Southern Asia, and the “Country of the Yonas[3]”) to promote Buddhism.

From the 2nd century AD, onwards — since the reign of Kanishka the Great, an emperor of the Kushan dynasty, state ideology based on Buddhist doctrines has dominated in Central Asia.

Andrey Zelinsky: “Having received initiation from the Kashmiri[4] teacher Sudarshana, Kanishka did not cease to be an Emperor, a despot and a conqueror, but became a defender of Buddhists. Buddhism, without ceasing to be a doctrine of mercy, acquired the features of a militant Church”.

Until the end of the 3rd century, the multi-million Kushan Empire of Buddhists flourished, and Buddha"s teachings were spread by kushans all over the world.

Boris Stavisky: “A Chinese spy in Indochina, describing the political situation in the twenties of the 3rd century, noted that the whole world is divided into three parts, subordinated to the three "Sons of Heaven" (emperors): Chinese, Roman and Kushan… At this time, Buddhism was widely spread from India, its homeland, to the countries of Southeast Asia, Central Asia and the Far East.

It was in the Kushan period that Great Silk Road — the first transcontinental route in the history of our planet was laid. It stretched from the Han Empire, through the lands of the Kushan and Parthian kingdoms, to the Roman Mediterranean…


At that time, contacts were also established between Central Asia, the tribes of the Urals and near the Urals and the population of the Northern Black Sea region”.

image A map of India showing the extent of the Kushan Empire during the reign of Kanishka. Most historians consider the empire to have variously extended as far east as the middle Ganges plain, to Varanasi on the confluence of the Ganges and the Jumna, or probably even Pataliputra

Thus the teaching of Buddha enjoyed unlimited support of one of the three world powers of the Ancient World for several centuries.

Pent Nurmekund: “The spread of Buddhism in China continued unabated throughout the Kushan era. In the history of China it corresponds to the periods of the Late Han (to 221) and Six Dynasties (from 222 to 589).

Translation of the Buddhist Canon from Sanskrit into Chinese has put forward the need for transliteration of untranslatable terms.


The idea of phonetic writing arose in this connection for the first time in the history of the Chinese language and writing”.

In the first centuries of the new era, a special silk market was in Rome.


A pound of silk was worth a pound of gold,[6] the body shone through the silk robes.[7]


Women in ancient Rome loved to buy silk.

Yevgeny Lubo-Lesnichenko: “Countless caravans brought silk to West from far Serika”.


Smooth silk fabric sericae were made in Xiy (literally the “Western border”, — area of Gansu and Shanxi).

The production of such silk quantities and the creation of great monuments certainly attracted thousands of people familiar with the teachings of the Buddha.

Steel, praised by Pliny, was produced in the middle part of Yenisei River basin, where archaeologists have unearthed traces of a large mining and metallurgical industry, called the Tagar[9] culture.

Archaeologists distinguish two types of bronze products made by Kushan metallurgists: Tagar, associated with the continuity of the inventory of the previous period, and the Huns, widespread at this time throughout the belt of the Asian steppes — except for the Middle Yenisei in Transbaikalia, Mongolia and Ordos (Compare to Latin Ordo).

But simultaneously out of the blue in Eastern Europe appeared millions of Slavs who had steel tools: axes, hoes, cleavers and sickles.

Buddhists cut down and then burned virgin forests (taiga) under the arable land for those who followed them.

It was hard work. Then they sowed the cleared areas with millet, peas and hemp.


Only by the 7th century Kushan (Russian “” [kushak]) metallurgists established iron production in the new West lands. However, it was of poor quality for a long time. The weapons were still delivered from the East.

The outflow of population from the Kushan Empire went not only to Eastern Europe.

Oleg Gutsulyak: “Indian lands southeast of Kandahar are called Kambodia or Yona-Kamboja. G. Bongard-Levin and G. Ilyin deduced this name from the Greek-Aramaic version of the name Kandahar (given, according to Al-Biruni, by the natives of Gandhara). Kambodia migrated South to Gujarat, South India and Sri Lanka, and later also to Bengal and Cambodia (Khmer: Kampuchea)”.[10]

Resettlement continued for several hundred years up to the 5th century.

However, Cambodia was unable to accommodate all internally displaced persons. The uninhabited lands of Eastern Europe accepted them.

For example, due to the Cold War the world with the word “Kalashnikov” () spread into almost all world languages.

The Slavs’s resettlement and the war against Europe in the fifth century led by the Huns of Attila is no exception.

The Huns were a military Alliance of men who came from Central Asia in the 3rd–5th centuries.

There is important common Slavic word that reminds of Buddha — Bhaga-[Bog] (“Donator, God”, in Modern English: Bog, Big, Boss, Box etc.), which was among the titles attributed to Ashoka, Kanishka and Buddhas.

image The Romans regarded the Greeks as natural slaves (bondman, bondservant, servant). Only Roman citizens were allowed to wear togas

This word remains in the languages of Slavs to refer to the Lord-Creator.[11]

The first Gothic historian Jordan in his 6th century"s work “De origine actibusque Getarum” (“The Origin and Deeds of the Getae/Goths”) reports about the Slavic Boz"s (Rex Antorum[12]) murder by the Goths in 375:

image Icon of Slav"s Boz (Boos). Look to the Gldenstdt J. A. Reisen durch Russland und im Caucasischen Gebrge. St. Petersburg, 1787–1791

“He [Vithimiris-Vinitharius][13] rivalled the valor of his grandfather Vultuulf, although he had not the good fortune of Hermanaric. But disliking to remain under the rule of the Huns, he withdrew a little from them and strove to show his courage by moving his forces against the country of the Antes. When he attacked them, he was beaten in the first encounter. Thereafter he did valiantly and, as a terrible example, crucified their king, named Boz, together with his sons and seventy nobles, and left their bodies hanging there to double the fear of those who had surrendered” (translation by Charles C. Mierow).[14]

image Antes (modern reconsruction)

Boz (Bog) was the Buddha to whom the Slavs still attribute the creation of their language.

image Goths

In his work “Die Goten: Sprache und Kultur”, Piergiuseppe Scardigli shows that in Europe in those days the word “Goth” (Russian[gad]) was not a designation of a tribe, but of heroes, condottieri, and mercenaries.

image Mounted warriors of the Greuthungi and Alans

The Slavs fought together Attila"s mercenary soldiers and used to call them “([nemtsi], from “” — dumb, speechless).


This was because the mercenaries came from different tribes and did not speak Slavic languages.


The “Nemtsi” became the progenitors of the modern speakers of Germanic languages.

Following the works of G. Vernadsky, P. Scardigli made a conclusion that the penetration of Buddhists in Dacia (Romania) happened at the end of the 2nd century, and not at the beginning of the 3rd century.

The basis for the conclusion — the inscription found in the Buddhist crypt near Pune mid-2nd century.


The inscription also mentions Gata, perhaps in reference to Goths.

One of the main concepts of Buddha"s doctrine —The Kalachakra(Sanskrit: कालचक्र, “Wheel of Time”) — is described in Lamaism and Tibetan Buddhism.

image The Celtic cross is featuring a nimbus or ring that emerged in Ireland and Britain in the Early Middle Ages

The memory of the spread of Kalachakra"s concept is evident in the languages of the people who participated in Attila’s wars.


The idea of Kalachakra was preserved in the words, [kalach, kalash])[15],[kalka] ([kalit’], “heating”), and[karachun].[16]

image High Cross in Llanynys, North Wales

Karachun — is a common Turkic word understood as kara (“black”) + chun (“soul or ghost”) — black (dark) spirit.


Hungarian (Finno-Ugric language) Karcsony — “Yuletide”, “Christmas”.

In Buddhist fairy tales, Attila is remembered as Achala. Acala or Achala (Sanskrit: अचल, "The Immovable"), also known as Acalanātha (अचलनाथ, "Immovable Lord") or Āryācalanātha (आर्याचलनाथ, "Noble Immovable Lord"), is a wrathful deity and dharmapala (protector of the Dharma) prominent in Vajrayana Buddhism and East Asian Buddhism. Originally a minor deity described as a messenger or acolyte of the buddha Vairocana, Acala later rose to prominence as an object of veneration in his own right as a remover of obstacles and destroyer of evil. He also came to be interpreted as the wrathful manifestation of either Vairocana, the buddha Akṣobhya, or the bodhisattva Majuśrī. In later texts, he is also called Caṇḍaroṣaṇa (ण्डरोषण​, "Violent Wrathful One") or Caṇḍamahāroṣaṇa (चण्डमहारोषण​, "Violent One of Great Wrath"), the names by which he is more commonly known in countries like Nepal and Tibet. In East Asian esoteric Buddhism, Acala is classed among the wisdom kings (vidyārāja) and is preeminent among the Five Wisdom Kings of the Womb Realm. Accordingly, he occupies an important hierarchical position in the Mandala of the Two Realms. In China, he is known as Budong Mingwang (不動明王, "Immovable Wisdom King", the Chinese translation of Sanskrit Acala Vidyārāja), while in Japan, he is called Fudō Myōō, the on"yomi reading of his Chinese name. Acala (as Fudō) is one of the especially important and well-known divinities in Japanese Buddhism, being especially venerated in the Shingon, Tendai, Zen, and Nichiren sects, as well as in Shugendō.

After the killing of Boz (Buddha) with his angels-disciples and archangels-teachers in 375 by the Goths, there was no one left to explain the complex concept of Kalachakra in Europe.

Nemtsi, in particular Goths, from the army of Attila in their own way comprehended Kalachakra and enriched a number of Slavic languages with its new meaning — heart.


In Deutsch (Germanic language) “Heart” is Herz, in Spanish (Romanic language) — Corazn, in Russian (Slavic language) — C [Serdče].

In 1992 Francis Fukuyama called the events, that followed, “End of history”.


However, the analogy with the events of The Migration Period (German loanword Vlkerwanderung) gives reason to discuss the next “Wheel of Time” instead of the “End of history”.


Before the murder of Bog (Buddha) in 375 the Slavs were Buddhists. After this event, began the division of the Slavs.
