The book provides an engaging record of the author's reactions to the cultures and artworks he encountered during his travels, and presents experimental theories about Buddhist art that many authorities of today have found to be remarkably prescient. It also casts important new light on the author's other works, highlighting in particular the affinities of his thinking with that of the religious and philosophical traditions of Asia.
