Structure of the World Compared to a Bubble

coverStructure of the World Compared to a Bubble, by Anne Waldman, from Penguin Books, ISBN 0143034200. The Stupa of Borobudur in Java is one of the architectural wonders of the world. Designed as both a mandala and a "holy book" that can be read by Buddhist pilgrims, it has inspired world-renowned poet Anne Waldman to create this unique work - at once a walking meditation, a "cultural intervention," a "recovery" of a sacred site, and a reflection on our busy "monkey brains," with a poet's sense of invocation and incantation and an engaged political and cultural awareness.
