India and China may see each other as rivals now, but over a thousand years ago, a tradition of exchange of ideas flourished between them
As India and China rattle sabres across the Line of Actual Control in Ladakh and other parts of the Himalayan border, what’s forgotten is the long history of exchange of ideas between the two nations. Between roughly the third and ninth centuries AD, the two cultural behemoths of Asia had developed an intense fascination for each other through Buddhism. It’s a hidden history of sorts but given that the contact continues to influence living traditions, it’s a history that’s hidden in plain sight.
