AbstractPrior to 1500 C.E., the map of the presence of Buddhism covers a wide area of Eastern Eurasia. This mapping has been given the name, “Great Circle of Buddhism”. One method of study is to identify infor- mation relating to the “rim” of this “Circle” as well as to the “core”. Im- portant events in the history of the tradition took place at the “rim” as trade and cultural issues flowed in both directions along it. Using geo-reg- istration software for the data, it is possible to document the trading and sailing circuits that were to be found in a complex pattern that had both local as well as international structures. This approach allows for a study of the dynamics of the religion’s dissemination even when textual histo- ries do not exist.
