Book Description
In the seventh century AD, the Chinese monk Xuanzang set off on an epic journey to India to study Buddhist philosphy from the Indian masters. Travelling along the Silk Road. Through the desolate wastes of the Gobi desert and the icy passes of Central Asia, braving brigands and blizzards, Xuanzang finally reached India, where his spiritual quest took him to Buddist holy places and monasteries throughout the subcontinent By the time he returned to China eighteen years later, carrying with him nearly 600 scriptures which he translated from Sansdrit into Chinese, Xuanzang had covered an astonishing 10,000 miles. He also left a detailed record of his journey, which remains a valuable source of historical information on the regions he traversed.
