This classic work is the biography of Hiuen-Tsiang whose record of sixteen years of travel spent in India is a priceless one, and through it we are able to reconstruct the world and ways of Buddhist India of the centuries that have passed.
This volume is intended to supplement the "History of the Travels of Hiuen-Tsiang" (Si-Yu-Ki) already published in two volumes and entitled 'Buddhist Records of the Western World'. The original from which the translation is made is styled "History of the Master of the Law of the three Pitakas of the Great Loving Kindness Temple". It was written, probably in five chapters, in the first instance by Hwui-li, one of Hiuen-Tsiang's disciples, and afterwards enlarged and completed in ten chapters by Yen-thsong, another of his followers.
Begins with the (birth of Hiuen-Tsiany) in Kow-shi, and ends with the account of his arrival at Kau-Chang.
Commencing with O-ki-ni, and ending with Kie-jo-kio-she (Kanavi)
Asangha's ascent to heaven
