The Prambanam Temple and Javanese Hinduism
Cosmic Harmony (26 minutes; dvd; English)
Director: Fred Wibowo
This documentary is representation of our modern world where technologies and industries create greatness and arrogant monuments which at the same time also bring distances with our daily lives. Technologies and industries tend to endanger harmony and make our lives unpleasant because of the waste pollution from industries and technologies.
Our ancestors in the past have actually created greatness through Prambanan Temple in harmony with nature, cosmic harmony- a harmony between the creator and creatures. The description of living harmony can be learned through the 135 reliefs of Kalpataru trees at the Prambanan Temple area.
This documentary has been created to understand and explore the role of spirituality of religion in this modern world

Speaker:  Dr. Himanshu Prabha Ray, historian and former Chairperson of National Monuments Authority, Professor, Centre for Historical Studies (CHS), Jawaharlal Nehru University
