Along with Commentary on the Waterways by Li Daoyuan, A Record of Buddhist Monasteries in Luo-yang by Yang Xuanzhi, a Chinese writer and translator of Mahayana Buddhist texts into the Chinese language, has been acclaimed as a prose classic of the Northern Wei Dynasty. Adopting the attitude of a historian, Yang provided complete, detailed and accurate records of Buddhist temples distribution in Luo-yang, as well as major monasteries history, architecture and relevant Buddhist activities. Owing to its description of the popularity of Buddhism in Luo-yang, the book, as well became an important Buddhist classic. His book also contains the first known account of the Buddhist monk Bodhidharma, founder of Zen, whom he met in Luoyang around 520. He describes him as a man of Central Asian origin, who claims to be 150 years old and to have traveled extensively throughout Buddhist lands. In addition, from palace coups to the life of ordinary people, it presents a panorama of the capital city including its government setup and social economy. What's more, Yang used the past to criticize the present, with narration interspersed with bits of comments, highlighting the book's role as "a mirror for government".

What's presented here is a bilingual English-Chinese edition. Professor Cao Hong of Nanjing University translates the ancient Chinese prose into contemporary Chinese, while Wang Yitong translates it into English.

内容简介

《洛阳伽蓝记》,向来与《水经注》一起被人们誉为中国北朝散文著作的双璧。作者杨衒之以史家的徵实态度,对北魏洛阳全城寺宇的地理分布、各城区主要寺宇的由来、建制及相关佛教活动等方面,有条不紊地加以记录,是一部重要的佛教史籍。另一方面,作者的笔触上及宫廷政变,下至里巷俗谚,对政府设施、经济景观、社会心理等作了合景式的反映,不仅体现出“博物洽闻”的史才,而且在记事中时寓褒贬之意、悲悯之怀,更颇具历史鉴戒之用。

本书为中英文对照读本,英译者为著名的华裔学者王伊同先生,中文今译者为南京大学教授曹虹女士。
