This title re-evalutes the encounter between Indian Buddhism and Chinese civilization. It argues that although the Chinese were cognizant of the foreign origins of Buddhism, their actual exposure to South Asian clerics and Sanskrit texts was limited throughout medieval times.

An important, provocative, well-researched and eminently readable contribution to our understanding of Chinese Buddhism. Any further discussion of Buddhism's 'sinicization' should now take this book as its starting point, for Sharf has launched a powerful critique of the heretofore dominant way in which such discussions have been framed. - Journal of Religion
