Fa Hsien, with a surname Kung before taking the tonsure, was from Hsiang-yu, Shan-hsi Province, At the age of three, he was enrolled in Buddhism. At 12, he became a monk. At the time, he found the Buddhist doctrines available were not sufficient. Then he decided to set out a tour to seek more Buddhist classics. He travelled westward passing through some 30 countries with much ado. Finally at the age of 65, he arrived in India where he learned the Sanskrit and searched for Buddhist classics. When he returned home at 78, he began to translate Buddhist classics into chinese totally over 300 rolls, He also wrote "Anecdote on the Country of Buddhism".
