Hiouen-Thsang In India
Hiouen-Thsang In India
Description
Back of the Book:

Hiouen-Thsang, the famous Chinese pilgrim travelled in India before the advent of the Islamic rulers. Those were the days when the country was exclusively Brahmanist and Buddhist. This volume, an extract from the author's larger work, Buddhism in India, deals in particular with the memoirs or Hiouen-Thsang. It gives a picture of the condition of Buddhism in India in the middle of the seventh century, and concludes with a summary of Indian Buddhism. This valuable document is a must read for students of religious history.

Buddhist scholar J. Barthelemy Saint-Hilaire has authored a number of widely read works on Buddhism. His Buddhism in India and The Buddha and His Religion are considered to be pioneering comprehensive works on the subject.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...

Je vis à La Martinique dans les Caraïbes. J'ai bien reçu votre envoi 'The ten great cosmic Powers' et Je vous remercie pour la qualité de votre service. Ce livre est une clé pour l’accès à la Connaissance de certains aspects de la Mère. A bientôt

Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,
Prof Madhulika, USA
