The Temple of Borobudur is a huge pyramid with a central stupa, which is built on a square base with 123 meters length of each side. It was built between between 750-850 AD and consists of nine floors. At the time of the discovery of the temple in 1814, the entire building was covered with soil and vegetation.

The question may be asked whether or in how far the form of the temple was supposed to reflect the shape of the nearby volcanoes.

Merapi Vulkan 2007
Eruption of Merapi volcano in 2007. The volcano appears to occupy a major energetical center in the landscape. At least this is what the astrogeographical position of the crater in the combination of the two major centralist zodiac signs Taurus and Leo (morphogenetic field level 3) suggest.

The structure is located only 30 km south of a chain of volcanoes including the Merapi strato-volcano, one of the most dangerous active volcanoes worldwide. The Merapi volcano appears to occupy a major energetical center in the landscape. At least this is what the astrogeographical position of the crater in the combination of the two major centralist zodiac signs Taurus and Leo (morphogenetic field level 3) suggest.

The temple played an important role as a site of worship dedicated to the “soothing” of the volcanoes and as a kind of a guardian temple.

Astrogeographical position of the Temple of Borobudur for morhogenetic field level 3 (surrounding area) which describes the energetical topics, function and atmosphere of the temple: The temple is located in the mystic, spiritual water sign Pisces which because of its significance for the place of Buddha’s enlightenment at Bodh Gaya can be considered as one of the most basic and most important astrogeographic aspects for Buddhist temples. Anyway Pisces as the sign of the unconscious, invisible, transcendental is the most important  indicator for places of the communion, contact and communication with the spheres and beings of the divine and the spiritual plane in general.

The second resonance coordinate is located in highly alert, dynamic, masculine fire sign Aries the sign of action, ignition, speed, warfare, unicellular beings and an indicator for the role of a temple as a site of worship before going to war. Aries stands for the phallic principle embodied by a stupa as well as for the one-dimensionality of the temple, which has been created as one piece without any side-buildings. This element of form hints at an interesting feature of Aries, which as the first sign and structural element in the systemical zodiac stands for a stage in the development of existence and of life where organisms are unicellular. For Aries as the sign of unicellular structures compare my blog: Aries as the Sign of Unicellular Structures.
