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
