About the Book:

The Chinese Buddhist Pilgrims visited India during the early centuries of the Christian era. The Buddhist literature of China contains the records of their travels, the authenticity of which is vouchsafed by the fact that they embody the testimony of independent eye-witnessess as to the facts related in them.<-p>

The records are very interesting as they refer to the geography, history, manners and religion of the people of the countries West of China, of India in particular, visted by the pilgrims.<-p>

The reader who looks into the pages of this book will find ample material for study on some important questions; the different manners and customs of separate people, the various products of the different soils and the diverse class divisions of the society; when Buddhism flourished and when Buddhism declined as also how the devoted pilgrims encountered the perils of travel in foreign and distant lands and endured sufferings by desert, mountain and sea.<-p>

Si-Yu-Ki, by Samuel Beal
