Borobudur Temple – Java

Embodying the Path of the Bodhisattva: Borobudur Temple

These images were photographed at the Borobudur Temple in Java, Indonesia.  Borobudur was built in the 9th Century and under ash for over 1000 years following the eruption of a volcano.  It was rediscovered in the early 1800’s and renovated in 1983.

It is the largest Buddhist temple in the world.  The journey through Borobudur follows a path around the monument and ascends to the top through symbolic levels of the world of desire; the world of compassion; and the world of formlessness.
