At first he ruled like his grandfather, Chandragupta Maurya, using warfare and violence. However, after a battle, he felt sorrow over the murder and suffering that war gives, and therefore decides to rule his empire through peace and non-violence. He converted to Buddhism and encouraged many people to do the same by spreading Buddhist ideas in pillars throughout the many roads he built.

I hope that this helps you...
