Lacunae in my indological education. Mihirakula and his systematic
persecution of the Buddhists and Jainas. Was he more a Huna or a
Śaivite ruler?

And - why do I remember the name of this crazy Ephesian shoemaker
Herostratus, but not the name of the Śaivite ruler Śaśāṅka - the
not-so-crazy uprooter of the Bodhi Tree?
