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’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
