内容概要

In the year 721, a young Buddhist monk named Hyecho set out from the kingdom of Silla on the Korean peninsula, on what would become one of the most extraordinary journeys in the history of Buddhism. Sailing first to China, Hyecho continued to what is today Vietnam, Indonesia, Myanmar, India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Iran, before taking the Silk Road back to China, where he would end his days on the sacred mountain of Wutaishan. This lecture will describe what Hyecho encountered in his travels and how his journey might provide new ways to understand the Buddhist tradition.
