When the seas settle, five men have disappeared—two lascars, two convicts and one of the passengers.

This book fills up a significant gap about the information available on the life of the illustrious Buddhist scholar, Hsuan-tsang, who visited India in the seventh century AD. While his experiences and observations from these travels are well documented and easily accessible to the English-speaking world, there is a silence on the years that followed his return to China in AD 645. Works that translated Chinese and Uigur texts on the life of Hsuan-tsang into German and Fr... View more info
