were maintained with Later Kusanas, Sakas and with Ceylon. This foreign relation involved (i) atmanivedanam- their own persons for service to the emperor, (ii) kanyopdyanaddna (gifts of maidens) and (iii) Garutmad-anka-sva-visaya-bhukti-Msana-ydcana (applications for charters bearing the Garuda seal for the enjoyment of their own territories).
The account implies Treaties of Alliance and Service. According to the Chinese author, Wang Hiuen-tse, the king of Ceylon Sri Meghavarna had sent two Buddhist monks to Bodh-Gaya, but the pilgrims had to face great inconvenience as there was no suitable accommodation. To remove this difficulty the king of Ceylon sent an embassy with presents to Samudragupta asking for his permission to build at Bodh Gaya
a monastery for the Ceylonese pilgrims. The permission was also granted instantly.
