How did Buddhism spread outside of India?

As with many world religions, it was the followers who helped to spread the faith, after the founder was dead. While there were individual examples of missionaries (usually Buddhist monks) going outside of India to teach in Buddhism's formative years, the most important period for the spread of Buddhism began around the year 272, after an influential Indian king named Ashoka adopted Buddhism. Ashoka contributed greatly to the growth of Buddhism within India; but he also contributed to its growth outside of India by sending missionaries to other centers of population along the Silk Road, where they shared Buddhist teachings and established centers of worship. Buddhist monks taught about the religion in China, Japan, Thailand, and throughout Asia; further, the words of the Buddha were translated into the local languages, making it easier for people in different countries to learn what Buddhism was about.
