"Kanishka's military conquests spread the Buddhist doctrine eastward across India, and Buddhism continued to flourish nearly everywhere in the Indian subcontinent for several centuries. Then Hinduism reasserted itself, and Buddha came to be regarded as just another incarnation of the Hindu god Vishnu. Buddhsim in the subcontinent after the yar 1000 became a kind of specialized Hindu sect. Its disappearance was hastened by the Muslim invasions; in the twelfth century the few remaining monasteries were pillaged and the great libraries of Buddhist thought were burned. "
