Secret Heart of Asia: Buddha on the Silk Road follows the route taken by 7th century monk Xuan Yang as he traced the teachings of the Buddha along the Silk Road. Referred to as the Marco Polo of the Orient, Xuan Yang's adventure still evokes stories from villagers who live along the route he traveled. From Xian in China to Bodhgaya in India, where Buddha was said to have achieved enlightenment, this video takes the viewer on this historically rich journey.
