This Candi Mendut is a reflection of the sublime and stupendous Indrajala of the Javanese people when they attained unprecedented heights of power, when literary genius blossomed in their language of Javenese, when they enriched their lovely island with monumental structures that evoke wonder after twelve centuries, even in their ruined state. Mark Long has endeavored to interpret on these celestial jewels, which reflects the many-splendored mind of the Indonesian people in their unique vision of compassion (maitri of Maitreya) in the virtue of creative action. This work by Mark Long continues his creative dimension of understanding the Candis of Indonesia as cosmic symbols of sovereignty that encode astronomical perceptions of the auspicious. In his study of the Borobudur, alongwith Caesar Voute, he blazed a new trail of infquiry, and found long-sought answers for resolving some doubts. Mark Long's present work on Candi Mendut is yet another milestone that deserves serious attention as it provides materials required for conducting a detailed study of the Mendut temple, as well as a number of points in need of futher investigation. This is a book that will provoke and inspire scholars to rethink many issues.;
