classic story

studying Madhyamaka texts such as the works of Nagarjuna. thumb 250px The Big Wild Goose Pagoda Day of Xī'ān, China (Image:Great Goose Pagoda Day 2005.jpg) The classic story of the ''Journey to the West'' was based on real events. In real life, Xuanzang (born c. 602 - 664) was a monk at Jingtu Temple in late-Sui Dynasty and early-Tang Dynasty Chang'an. Motivated by the poor quality of Chinese translations of Buddhist scripture at the time, Xuanzang left Chang'an in 629, despite the border being closed at the time due to war with the Göktürks. Helped by sympathetic Buddhists, he travelled via Gansu and Qinghai to Kumul (Kumul (city)) (Hami), thence following the Tian Shan mountains to Turpan. He then crossed what are today Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, and Afghanistan, into Gandhara, reaching India in 630. Xuanzang travelled throughout the Indian subcontinent for the next thirteen years, visiting important Buddhist pilgrimage sites and studying at the ancient university at Nalanda. The key oasis towns, watered by rainfall from the mountains, were Kashgar, Marin (Marin (China)), Niya (Niya (Tarim Basin)), Yarkand (Yarkent County), and Khotan (Hotan) (Hetian) to the south, Kuqa and Turpan in the north, and Loulan and Dunhuang in the east. Now many, such as Marin and Gaochang, are ruined cities in sparsely inhabited areas in the Xinjiang Autonomous Region (Xinjiang) of the People's Republic of China. Wikipedia:Turpan Commons:Turpan
