Description

The complete Indonesian Brahmandapurana has been translated into English for the first time in this work. It was rendered into Classical Indonesian language (Kawi) in the tenth Century AD Simple and lucid, it relates the story vividly in limped fluency. The Indonesian Brahmandapurana is not literal Kawi rendering of the Sanskrit text. It is an original text in Kawi, which has taken inspiration from the Sanskrit Brahmandapurana and the Vayupurana. It follows Sanskrit passages. Although it is much shorter, it does not generally speaking, omit, the matter what is essential. The interesting feature of the Indonesian Brahmandapurana is that many slokas, double or single Padas are literally borrowed and interspersed at irregular interval.

The Indonesian Brahmandapurana contains summaries of information on mythology, philosophy, geography, politics, and so on. From the religious point of view, the Brahmandapurana is regarded as a sacred treatise in India as well as in Ancient Indonesia. It has the ancient Vedic tradition which is called the fifth Veda.

This English translation of the Indonesian Brahmandapurana has been done for the first time. Its corresponding Kawi text is given on the opposite pages to enable researchers to understand it, in depth. The present English translation of one of the great Classical Indonesian literary texts would be of great help not only to students of Indology, but also to others interested in the cultural development of Southeast Asia in Ancient times.
