Reprint; originally pub. as Abingdon Dictionary of Living Religions, 1981; pg. 19. "As noted, the Ajivikas remained active and visible after the death of Maskarin Gosala [ca. 485 B.C.]. Epigraphic evidence and imperial donations of cave-monasteries to the Ajivikas indicate numerical and geographical expansion in the period of the Mauryan Dynasty (third century A.D.). Thereafter, however, the Ajivikas apparently became steadily less in number and influence in Northern India, dying out by the Gupta era (fourth century A.D.). "

Reprint; originally pub. as Abingdon Dictionary of Living Religions, 1981; pg. 19. "...in Northern India, dying out by the Gupta era (fourth century A.D.). In the South [of India], in eastern Mysore and the Tamil country, the Ajivikas remained active for another millennium... the Dravidian Ajivikas began to develop ideas that may have led to their assimilation into other movements, or they may have simply fallen into such disfavor that the movement eventually disintegrated. In any case, by the end of the fourteenth century A.D., they had passed from the scene. "
Ajivikas world - - - - -500 B.C.E. Occhiogrosso, Peter. The Joy of Sects: A Spirited Guide to the World's Religious Traditions. New York: Doubleday (1996); pg. 48-49. "The Ajivikas have disappeared along with their sacred texts... they were founded by Makkhali Gosala during the same period that Jainism and Buddhism developed (6th-5th centuries BC) and that they were fatalists who believed they were at the mercy of a cosmic power they called niyati. Liberation came only after a preset number of reincarnations, the last of which was as a monk of their ascetical order. Perhaps because of this fatalistic philosophy, it has been suggested, the Ajivikas simply depressed themselves out of existence. "
