The first evidence of the religion spreading outside India coincides with Ashoka's rule as he sent emissaries to Sri Lanka and an area called Suvarnabhumi, which could be in modern Myanmar or Thailand. Ashoka's son, monk Mahinda, converted King Devanampiya Tissa and other nobility in modern day Sri Lanka to Buddhism.
