Si-Yu-Ki or the Buddhist Records of the Western World: trans. From the Chinese of Hiuen Tsiang AD 629, 2 vols. (bd in 1)
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8121507413 / 9788121507417; Reprint; Hardcover; New; New; 
Among the various travelogues, Hiuen Tsiang's Si-yu-ki or Records of the Western World, is regarded to be the most valuable source-book for the study of ancient Indian history. Si-yu-ki is not merely a travel-diary recording Hiuen Tsing's visit to various places in India and the places en route, but is also an account of the conditions of India during the seventh century. This journey was undertaken by Hiuen Tsiang primarily with a view to visiting the Buddhist places of pilgrimage and to seek answers to the questions agitating his mind. He was inspired in this by the recollection of similar journeys undertaken centuries ago by his predecessors, Fa-hien, Sung Yun and many others. Born at Loyang in the year 600, Hiuen Tsiang set out on this journey to the regions west of China and to India at the age of twentynine (629) from Chang' an in West China. Travelling by the northern route which took him to Turfan, Kara Shahr, Lake Issyk Kul, Tashkent, Samarkand, Balkh and Bamiyan, he arrived in the Kingdom of Gandhara towards the end of the year 630. There-from he proceeded to India and practically traversed the entire country going as far south as Kanchi and Nasik, Valabhi and Multan in the west. During his sojourn he spent nearly eight years, from 635 to 643, in Harsha's dominions and stayed for about fifteen months at Nalanda, learning the Yogachara doctrine which he afterwards enunciated in a book on his return to his country. Early in 645 he reached China, returning by the southern route passing through Kashgar, Yarkand, Khotan and Lop-nor. On his return to China, where he was received with great honour and bestowed the title Master of the Law, he took to the work of compiling an account of his travels. In the present volume, Samuel Beal has included, for the sake to completeness, Travels of Fa-hian or Fo-Kwo-ki. The Hwei-Sang and the preface to the Si-Yu-Ki by Chang Yueh.

Si-Yu-Ki: Buddhist Records of the Western World
Low Price Publications/D.K. Publishers Distributors Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2008; 8175364378 / 9788175364370; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Chinese Buddhist Pilgrims visited India during the early centuries of the Christian era. The Buddhist literature of China contains the records of their travels, the authenticity of which is vouchsafed by the fact that they embody the testimony of independent eye-witnessess as to the facts related in them.The records are very interesting as they refer to the geography, history, manners and religion of the people of the countries West of China, of India in particular, visted by the pilgrims.The reader who looks into the pages of this book will find ample material for study on some important questions; the different manners and customs of separate people, the various products of the different soils and the diverse class divisions of the society; when Buddhism flourished and when Buddhism declined as also how the devoted pilgrims encountered the perils of travel in foreign and distant lands and endured sufferings by desert, mountain and sea.

12 Samuel Beal
The Life of Hiuen-Tsiang: Shaman Hwui-Li with an introduction containing an account of the works of I-Tsing
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8121503329 / 9788121503327; Reprint; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Life of Hiuen-Tsiang by Shaman Hwui Li is a companion volume to the Si-Yu-Ki or the Buddhist Records of the Western World of Hiuen-Tsiang. It is an indispensable source-book for the scholars interested in the history of ancient India in general and Buddhism in particular. The Life of Hiuen-Tsiang contains a biographical account of his life by his disciple Hwui Li. It elucidates the details relating to the events in the life of the great scholar, saint and pilgrim-traveller. The life is divided into five Books and covers the entire life-span of Hiuen-Tsiang, beginning with his birth till his death in the year 664. The description of the eventful life of his master which was as much occupied by travels as by an almost unbelievably gigantic task of translating a large number of original Buddhist works from Sanskrit into Chinese, is marked by reverential attitude and makes a fascinating reading. But more than that, it is a compendium of information on contemporary China, India and those remote parts of Central Asia which the great pilgrim traversed during his journey to India. Samuel Beal's translation of the Life from original Chinese is an authentic rendering with copious notes on controversial matters. It also contains an account of the works of I-Tsing who also journeyed into India in the footsteps of Hiuen-Tsiang. Besides a Preface by L.Crammer Byung, the present edition also contains a detailed Introduction by Samuel Beal wherein various controversial matters including those pertaining to the indentification of names and places have been discussed.

Travels of Fah-Hian and Sung-Yun: Buddhist Pilgrims from China to India (AD 400 and AD 518)
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2016; 8121512654 / 9788121512657; Reprint; Hardcover; New; New; 
The present work contains two translations from the Chineseó (1) The Travels of Fah-Hian and (2) The Mission of Sung-Yun; both Buddhist pilgrims from China to India. This translation was published at a time when little was known in Europe of Chinese-Buddhist literature. Fah-Hianís account of travels in India and Ceylon from AD 399 to 414 is one of the most important sources of reconstructing the life and condition of the times. Though brief, his account depicts general characteristics and tenderness of Gupta Imperial administration. It is a source-book for the study of Ancient India and Buddhism in India.
