Borobudur ( budhis mystery in stone )

Borobudur ( Budhis Mystery in Stone )

Firstly, we must compare Borobudur to a Mandala, that is, a geometrical diagram to assist meditation. Secondly, Borobudur is a magic model of the universe, conceived for the spiritual exercise of the monks.

Borobudur is the answer Buddhism – at a point in its history halfway between the appearance of its founder The Great Buddha Sakyamuni (Siddharta Gautama) and our time – gave to the ever-lasting enigma, that is, the relation of the unreal and illusive world in which mankind opereates and the ultimate reality behind it all. It is an answer of human religious feeling or spiritual feeling – the Union World of forms and Reality or Man and God.

The theatre of the relation between Man and God or forms and Reality expressed in Borobudur’s beautiful existence. Borobudur shows the three spheres of cosmos, that is, sphere of desire, sphere of form and sphere of formless (Kamadhatu, Rupadhatu, and Arupadhatu).

The basic section shows the law of cause and effect (Karma) from the Teaching of Buddha. The sight of the misery of this world will condition the mind of pilgrim to be prepared for the idea of liberation from the world. Evil actions will bring the suffering and good actions will bring the conditions to comprehend a more higher teaching.

The second section explaines the practice of the self-deliverence of Buddha Sakyamuni. We must release ourselves from the suffering but we cannot stop the suffering itself.

The following section teach us how we can learn from the footsteps of Boddhisattvas who offer themselves for the happiness of all beings. The boddhisattvas have succeeded in getting rid of all the attachment and attain the state of spiritual liberation for the happines of all living beings.

The final section is the greatness of all the Dhyani-Buddhas (Meditative Buddhas) with a primary highest Buddha called Adhi-Buddha.

Observing these facts, we can say that Borobudur Temple is a perfect masterpiece viewed both esthetic and religious settings, explaining the holy teaching of the Great Buddha Sakyamuni (Siddharta gautama), namely; Karmavibbhanga teaching, Lalitavistara which guides pilgrim to get rid of the sufferings, Jatakamala, Avadana, Gandavyuha and Bhadrachari or Maha Samantha Bhadracarita Pranidanangatha teachings which explain how the pilgrim must learn and follow all Boddhisattvas’ holy actions for the happines of all living beings. Finally, the pilgrim will encounter the Union World of Human and God, and attain the world of Absoluteness, Oneness, and the Ultimate Reality or also called Nirwana.
