Erich  Follath - Siddhartha's Final Secret


A fascinating journey through the past and present of Buddhism

He was an explorer, scientist, adventurer – and a deeply religious wayfarer searching for enlightenment. In the year 629 A.D. and against the will of the Chinese emperor, monk Xuanzang travelled through deserts and over mountain passes along the Silk Road to India on his search for testimonies of the religious founder Siddhartha Gautama. Seventeen years and many dramatic experiences later, he returned home in triumph. His spiritual search made him into a legend. Bestselling author Erich Follath has traced Xuanzang's life and adventures – and spent a year following in his footsteps.

Siddhartha's Final Secret can be equally read as a gripping historical biography, as an introduction to Buddhism and as an analysis of China and India as modern-day world powers.
