Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Prajna is the Sanskrit word for radiant wisdom, and yatra is the word for pilgrimage or spiritual journey. This visually stunning documentary is a cinematic pilgrimage exploring the lost civilization of Angkor in Cambodia, including the largest temple in the world, the magnificent Angkor Wat. The journey continues to sacred sites of the natural world, Hindu Bali, jungles of Java, and discovering Buddhist Borobudur. A John Bush film.

Review

This second title in the Sacred Journey series travels to Cambodia, Bali, and Java to explore Buddhist and Hindu sacred sites. In Cambodia, cameras pan the intricately carved walls of the ancient temples of Angkor, Orange-robed monks and white-clad nuns visit the temple and engage in moving religious services, while native dancers celebrate the holy site. In Bali, film crews go to a Hindu cave temple, while in Java, filmmakers study the mammoth Borobudur Buddhist Temple. Beautifully shot footage, Sharon Stone s melodious narration, and background chanting imbue this soothing, meditative program. --Booklist

Prajna Earth is a serene cinematic pilgrimage pervaded by a quiet energy. The gentle rhythm of overland travel is replicated in the deliberately languorous pace, which allows you to be both steeped in the richness of the landscape and to absorb the significance of the symbolism. --Tim McHenry, Rubin Museum of Art, New York

This second documentary in the Journey into Buddhism series, sandwiched in between the 2001 "Dharma River" and the 2006 "Vajra Sky Over Tibet," explores the meeting points of Buddhist and Hindu traditions in Cambodia's lost Angkor civilization, including the Angkor Wat--the largest temple in the world. The journey takes us through Hindu Bali and then to observe Java's jungle trance dancers. In Java, now a Moslem country, there's the awesome sight of the gigantic seven level mandala of Buddhist Borobudur. The colorful visual spectacle is narrated by Sharon Stone and directed by documentarian John Bush. The chanting hymns by David Hykes is intoxicating. For a stunningly beautiful visual trip into exotic and lush Buddhist and Hindu locations, this film is unparalleled. --Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews

Review from "Spirituality & Practice" Dec 2012

Prajna Earth: Journey into Sacred Nature is the second in a trilogy of films by John Bush on the spiritual riches of certain special places that have drawn pilgrims and devotees to them. Prajna is a Sanskrit term that means radiant wisdom. We've reviewed two other films in the Yatra Trilogy: Dharma River and Vajra Sky Over Tibet. With narration by Sharon Stone, writer and director Bush takes us on a journey to Cambodia, Bali, and Java where Buddhism embraced Hinduism resulting in a deep and pervasive love and respect for nature.

You will be enchanted by the beauty of the art, the architecture, and the rituals and ceremonies performed by ordinary people. In Bali, there is no word for "art" yet everyone has a part to play in festivals, dance performances, and dramas. Creativity abounds everywhere and as a result both the inward and the external beauty of the people are revealed.

From a tour of Cambodia's Anglor Wat -- the largest temple in the world -- to the dancers in Bali working wonders with their hands, Bush captures it all with stunning photography and a Harmonic Chant score by David Hykes.

Well done film. I have been to many of these places. I am glad Stone is funding worth while docu's as this. However, think ofr the acculturated religion to create these shrines! Think these places were shambala? Anchor 1100 years ago had 1 million people! I have meditated at Korat-Pemai, and Auyatawa, in Thailand on Anchor ruins. And Anchor sites. Sems to me Engaged Buddhism is needed for Western archetypes, not traditional foreign forms. Technique of meditation, pranayam, and refuge is the deal! Does one need mantra, yantra, saddana, puja, or Mudra for refuge?
