State of Buddhism and Jainism(in Hindi)
She seems to be talking about a certain group i.e Mahayana Buddhism(Gautam Buddha). Mahayana Buddhism did not existed.They did not belief in idol worship. On other hand Hinayana came a long way as Gupta Period patronised the fact, that Nalanda University was built and idol worships of Lord Buddha came into force and was in its peak. So in this case its'a part of Buddhism (Mahayana) which lost its existent especially in Gangetic plains. It was from Kushans onwards Mahayana Buddhism was losing its existence and in Gupta Empire it was gone. Hope this answers your query.
