Kavya Style!

The earliest specimen of Kavya style is found in?

The soonest example of the kavya style is found in the Junagadh engraving of Rudradaman in Kathiawar in about advertisement 150. From that point onwards, engravings started to be made in pure Sanskrit, in spite of the fact that the utilization of Prakrit in creating inscriptions proceeded till the fourth century and even later.

It gives the idea that a portion of the considerable inventive writers, for example, Ashvaghosha appreciated the patronage of the Kushans. Ashvaghosha composed the Buddhcharita, which is a life story of the Buddha, and furthermore formed Saundarananda, a fine case of Sanskrit kavya.

The development of Mahayana Buddhism prompted the arrangement of various avadanas (life history and lessons). A large portion of these writings was formed in what is currently known as Buddhist Hybrid Sanskrit with the sole goal of conveying the lessons of Mahayana Buddhism to the general population. Cases of critical books of this sort were Mahavastu and Divyavadana.
