6. TirthikaTirthika is a general term referring to adherents of non-Buddhist philosophies and religions. Whereas a Buddhist takes refuge in the Three Jewels and treads the middle way between extremes, a Tirthika does not. According to the Asoka Avadhana, the Tithikas that were jealous of Asoka's preaching of Buddhism gathered together and said to each other, "Should this king Asoka continue a worshiper of Budda, all other persons encouraged by him would likewise become followers of Buddha.
