The Guptas Return to Hinduism
Under the rule of Guptan kings, the people of India returned to their Hindu roots. Hindu became the religion of the state in the Gupta Empire, and leaders encouraged the people to follow the teachings in the sacred writings, especially the Upanishads.
Guptan Kings lowered taxes and encouraged freedom and personal development. As a result, the Guptan Empire became the center of arts, learning, science and technology, astronomy and math for the region.
