Hiouen-Thsang In India
Hiouen-Thsang In India
Description
Back of the Book:

Hiouen-Thsang, the famous Chinese pilgrim travelled in India before the advent of the Islamic rulers. Those were the days when the country was exclusively Brahmanist and Buddhist. This volume, an extract from the author's larger work, Buddhism in India, deals in particular with the memoirs or Hiouen-Thsang. It gives a picture of the condition of Buddhism in India in the middle of the seventh century, and concludes with a summary of Indian Buddhism. This valuable document is a must read for students of religious history.

Buddhist scholar J. Barthelemy Saint-Hilaire has authored a number of widely read works on Buddhism. His Buddhism in India and The Buddha and His Religion are considered to be pioneering comprehensive works on the subject.

I received my Manjushri statue today and I can't put in words how delighted I am with it! Thank you very much. It didn't take very long to get here (the UK) - I wasn't expecting it for a few more weeks. Your support team is very good at providing customer service, too. I must conclude that you have an excellent company.
