Siddharta's last secret

by Erich Follath


He was an explorer, scientist, adventurer and a deeply religious traveler in search of enlightenment. Against the will of the Chinese emperor, the monk Xuanzang traveled through deserts and over mountain passes on the Silk Road to India in 629 in search of evidence of the religious founder Siddharta Gautama. Seventeen years and many dramatic experiences later, he returned home in triumph, his spiritual quest making him a legend. Bestselling author Erich Follath spent a year following his trail and traces the life and adventures of Xuanzang. "Siddhartha's Last Secret" can be read as an exciting historical biography, as an introduction to Buddhism and as a geopolitical analysis of today's world powers China and India.
