Abstract: In this research article we have focused our attention only to the 3rd Buddhist Council which patronized by Emperor Aśoka. We have not discussed about the previous life of Asoka, his conspiracy to the kingship or war against Kalinga. There is no mention at all either of the thēra Moggaliputata Tissa or of his third council in the Aśokāvadāna. Aśōka’s legend is found in the fifth century chronicles of Sri Lanka, the Dῑpavaṃsa and the Mahāvaṃsa as well as in Buddhagohosa’s commentary on the Vinaya. In addition to this, the commentary on the Mahāvaṃsa, the Thūpavaṃsa and the Bōdhivaṃsa were studied. The discrepancies in Mahāvaṃsa and Divyāvadāna has been discussed here.
