About the Book :
The book Buddhism in India as Described by the Chinese Pilgrims incorporates an exhaustive study of the lives and the works of Chinese pilgrims and their connection with the growth of Buddhism in India, during fifth to seventh centuries AD. The book has been divided into four sections in order to present a handy description of the different aspects of Buddhism as noted by the Chinese pilgrims during those centuries. In his endeavour to make the work more descriptive the author has made use of the records compiled by Thomas Watters, J. Takakusu, Samuel Beal, H.A. Gibbs, James Legge etc.
