Description:
On the Trail of Buddha—A Journey to the East is a unique sojourn in search of the spiritual, philosophical, and cultural linkages that bind India to the East Asian civilisations. From the wandering monks of Asia to the temples and monasteries they visited; from the statues and frescoes in grottoes to those in the museums; from the diverse ethnicities of the people to their common gods and goddesses—the book explores the ‘ancient India’, beautifully preserved in the traditions, art, and architecture of China, as also in Mongolia, Korea and Japan, to where it spread from China.
It discovers the unity in diversity of cultures connected by two thousand miles of the Silk Road and separated by two thousand years of history. It has taken the author nine years to come out with this work.

Early Praise:

‘The present book is an endeavour to discover the richness and vastness, the depth and breadth of the spiritual, philosophical, and cultural linkages that bind the Indian civilization to much of East Asia – the Chinese, Japanese, Korean and Mongolian civilizations. From the wandering monks of Asia, to the temples and monasteries they frequented, from the statues and frescoes in grottoes and temples to those in museums, from the Emperors who embraced Buddhism to the relics of Buddha spread far and wide, from the diverse ethnicities of the people to their common Gods and Goddesses, the book covers it all…’Garhwal Post
