This book fills up a significant gap about the information available on the life of the illustrious Buddhist scholar, Hsuan-tsang, who visited India in the seventh century AD. While his experiences and observations from these travels are well documented and easily accessible to the English-speaking world, there is a silence on the years that followed his return to China in AD 645. Works that translated Chinese and Uigur texts on the life of Hsuan-tsang into German and French were in print as early as the 1850s, but have not been available to a wider audience. This book brings together a selection of the available material, freshly translated into English. Devahuti's introduction and summary of life bring out, in sharp focus, the contributions and impact of Hsuan-tsang. This work stands out for its in-depth research and use of original sources. It will be a valuable addition to the existing literature on Hsuan-tsang and Buddhism of the time, and opens new areas for further research and analysis. Printed Pages: 213.
