Richard Bernstein discussed his book Ultimate Journey: Retracing the Path of an Ancient Buddhist Monk Who Crossed Asia in Search of Enlightenment, published by Knopf. In the book, Mr. Bernstein describes his journey following in the footsteps of Hsuan Tsang, a Chinese Buddhist monk, who in the 7th century made his way from China to India and back in 17 years. According to Mr. Bernstein, Hsuan Tsang’s trip was a remarkable journey because of the importance and impact it had for future generations in China as well as the cultures he encountered. The same journey took Richard Bernstein a couple of months and he discussed the emotions he experienced and what he learned in his meetings with people in the countries he visited. The author ended the event by answering questions from members of the audience. close
