"Xuan Zang" Reaction & Review
[01:17:01]  August 25th, 2022

In this Special Episode of Edward Reib's "Buddhist Books" Podcast, we'll be joining 7th-century CE Buddhist scholar-monk Xuan Zang on his epic journey from China to India where he studies at Nalanda University in Rajgir, collects over 657 Indian texts, and brings them back with him to China to translate.

"Xuan Zang" is a historical movie produced in 2016. In the introduction to this episode, Edward will review and generally describe the movie, spoiler-free, and try to convince you not to watch this episode but, rather, to go watch the movie. Then, in the second part of this episode, he'll watch and react to highlights of the movie.
