Description

About the Book :

Yuan Chwang or Hiuen Tsiang, the famous Chinese traveller, commands such a high seat of eminence that he is styled as one of the three mirrors that reflect Indian Buddhism in the country of his birth. To us in India too, he is no ordinary mirror, for had it not been for the records which he so diligently maintained of his visit to India during AD 629 to 645, a good part of our past, of our history, that too of one of the golden periods of this land, would have been lost in the limbo of oblivion. To Yuan Chwang goes the gratitude of all Indians as well as Indian historians. The work in which the details of Yuan Chwangs travels in India and other countries is recorded is called Hsi-yu-shi in the original Chinese. Thomas Watters who was a distinguished Chinese scholar had spent several years in studying and researching into his great work, and here in one volume are presented the results of his study, as edited by T.W. Rhys Davids and S.W. Bushell. The work also carries as an appendix the graphic itinerary in two maps followed by Yuan Chwang, arranged for the readers by Vincent A. Smith. This work which was published in two volumes in 1904-05 by the Royal Asiatic Society, London and was for long out-of-print is now made available in a single, handy volume. We are grateful to the Royal Asiatic Society, London, who have made this possible, by their generous permission for reprinting the work.

 

About the Author:

On Yuan Chwang’s Travels in India is a posthumous work of Thomas Watters. Thomas Watters was quite well-versed in Chinese Buddhist literature. He perhaps knew more about Chinese Buddhist literature than any other European scholar during his times. He also had a fair knowledge of Pali and Sanskrit. The translation of the travels by Samuel Beal contained many mistakes. On Yuan Chwang’s Travels in India is the correct presentation of the present Pekinese pronunciation by the author. In this Mr Watters discusses and identifies all the Sanskrit names of places, etc., transliterated in the original Chinese text, and adds an elaborate index of the persons mentioned in the course of the travels.

Thomas Watters had rare qualities of mind and earned the admiration of those most qualified to judge during his lifetime.
