The explorative foot journey of Deepak Anand under the Retracing Bodhisattva Xuanzang (RBX) project was undertaken after fresh interpretation of the travel accounts of Master Xuanzang to explore the Sublime Wandering of the Buddha in the Gangetic Plains. Despite numerous difficulties from time to time including the COVID 19, Deepak and the team RBX did not give up and continued this important mission which has yielded some tangible results in shape of some important new discoveries. More than 2400 kms of this on-going explorative foot journey by Deepak Anand has been completed and the documentation carried out by him has resulted in 44 project stories so far.
