BOOM! Our nomadic wanderings here in Southeast Asia next take us to Prambanan Temple on the island of Java in Indonesia. This is the oldest Hindu temple complex in Indonesia–built in the eighth and ninth centuries, c.e. The entire complex was found in total ruins some time in the eighteenth century by Sir Thomas Raffles and his team of explorers. Since then the tall towers that you see above have been entirely rebuilt by piecing together stones that were strewn about all over the site. Work continues even today to refurbish and rebuild whatever they can here. . .the job is huge as there are nearly 300 other smaller surrounding structures that are simply piles of random stones awaiting cataloguing and assembly. . .I am sure that lack of funds and some lack of interest on the part of local and national authorities here stand in the way of any quick resolution to the situation. Nevertheless, this is a gorgeous and important site to visit while tooling around on the island of Java, and we are honored to have the opportunity to feel the good vibes that exist in every stone here. . .we hope that you can feel them, too.
I send you magical vibes from Prambanan. . .feel them. . .they will help you live well today and every day.
