   schema:reviewBody ""'Ten Thousand miles without a cloud' is a Buddhist saying. It means the search for a mind clear of doubts: a perfect title for this book on a journey of discovery and faith." "Sun Shuyun grew up in China during the Cultural Revolution. At school, it was more important to learn the right attitudes than study. But she shared a room, a bed, with her grandmother, hearing her forbidden prayers - for her grandmother remained a Buddhist. By the time Sun Shuyun reached university, she saw the bitter disillusionment of her father and his comrades - communism had not delivered their ideals - and wondered where to turn for hers." "Once outside China, Sun Shuyun discovered the fame of a true Chinese hero. Xuanzang lived in an extraordinary, golden period of Chinese history, and was a man of such qualities that he could restore belief to all of us. So she set out to discover what gave him strength and purpose, and above all to find a faith for herself." "Sun Shuyun retraced Xuanzang's steps from China, on the ancient Silk Road through Central Asia to India and back - the journey he made to find true Buddhism - and in doing so traverses four landscapes - personal, historical, cultural and spiritual, and gives us a vivid insight into China and its people, past and present."--BOOK JACKET." ;
