Abstract

Extract:
In Javanese tradition there is a spherical mandala which involves Chandra (Moon), Surya (Sun), Kartika (Star), Bumi (Earth), Geni (Fire), Banyu (Water), Maruto (Wind) and Samudra (the Ocean). The meaning of this mandala, the Hasta Brata, is that we are all monarchs, and have to live according to these eight principles. One cannot be emphasised over another; all need to be blended harmoniously.
