Retracing Bodhisattva Xuanzang
A Foot Journey to Explore the Sublime Wanderings of the Buddha


Project Overview

Retracing Bodhisattva Xuanzang: A Foot Journey to Explore the Sublime Wanderings of the Buddha is the first of its kind documentary series being made in India. The “Sublime Wanderings” (footsteps) of the Buddha in the Indo-Gangetic Plains, which he made to teach the Dhamma (Dharma), are very sacred. Millions of people come and pay homage at the holy sites connected with life of the Buddha, but his Sublime Wanderings is still a lesser known subject.

From March 2020 we are starting our historical mission of a social impact campaign through this unique documentary series, having a two dimensional approach of facilitating the revitalisation of the Buddhacārikā (sacred footsteps of the Buddha) and highlighting the invaluable contribution of Master Xuanzang in preserving this sacred Geography and History for posterity. But for Xuanzang’s travel accounts, the World would have never known about the Eight Great Places and other sacred places associated with the Buddha.

Deepak Anand, an explorer is on a mission to create awareness about the footsteps of the Buddha by walking the journey of nearly 2000 kms undertaken by Bodhisattva Xuanzang in the Indo-Gangetic Plains 14 Centuries ago. The foot journey of Deepak is from Adi Badri (part of ancient Kingdom of Kuru) to Nalanda (final destination of Xuanzang in India).

On this foot journey, Deepak will stitch the stories about the ancient kingdoms where the Blessed One walked and taught the Dhamma. The unique effort is being visually documented by us for the benefit of entire world. Join us and support us in this Dharma work and in making Bodhisattva Xuanzang a household name for his most valuable contributions that are by and large unknown to the World.

With our faith and confidence in the Buddha, Dhamma and Sangha, we decided to bank on the new and ongoing concept of Crowd funding for this important project, so that the like-minded people get opportunity in collecting funds for this unique effort and earn merit.
