Sample text

Lf these various suppositions would prove to be correct, I would like to consider next, whether the old Javanese notice of the beginning of the 18th century, which mentions the "mountain" Barabu<;lur 20'), is not closer to truth and to tradition than might be thought at first sight. lt might contain a remnant of the original meaning of the name, rather than an allusion to a ruin buried by volcanic ashes. lf the name does actually mean "hill-monastery", the indication by means of redi (mountain) may quite well be a repetition of the word bugur, of which the meaning had by that time become vague.

Other indications, like leaving intact short notes for the sculptor, or leaving some reliefs unfinished, do not count, of course, as they might be explained by assuming that the construction of the foot was an urgent matter and that it took place while the other work was still in progress. Finally I must point out that specialists have assured me that the covering construction is far from sufficient for its assumed purpose and that therefore the builders not only would have made mistakes in their calculations for the monument itself but also for the provisional measures.

D. ur, mentioned here for the firsttime in a contemporary record]. <;li Barabu<;lur as a stüpa, opinions differ as to the true meaning of such a structure on Java. As far as India is concerned, it is easily understood that great structures in stüpa-form were erected over the remains of the Buddha or of his disciples, but this is hardly to be expected for Java. Moreover, the time of the foundation between 750 and 850 provides food for thought 22). Buddha-relics will have been unobtainable by this time and we have no reason either to expect the embellishment of an ancient stüpa built over genuine relics.
