Product Details

Praise

“Intrepid traveler, chronicler of Indian Buddhism, consummate scholar, translator extraordinaire, and inspiration for Journey to the West, Xuanzang may be the most famous figure in the history of Buddhism after the Buddha himself. If you don’t believe it, read this book, where Benjamin Brose recounts Xuanzang’s extraordinary life and offers finely crafted translations from his inspiring works and from works inspired by him.”—Donald S. Lopez Jr., author of Gendun Chopel: Tibet’s Modern Visionary

“[An] excellent addition to the Lives of the Masters Series . . . Brose’s smart volume is a compact yet comprehensive introduction to Xuanzang.”—Publishers Weekly

“Brose’s book joins a distinguished lineage of studies about China’s most famous pilgrim-monk. However, its nuance and depth of thought give it a strong edge over many introductory books to Xuanzang. This is the strength of the ‘Lives of the Masters’ series: it re-introduces familiar names in an updated light, allowing us to revisit these great women and men, while being able to enjoy a different conversation with them.”—Buddhistdoor Global

“Brose paints a vivid portrait of Xuanzang.”—Buddhadharma
