Putu Fadjar Arcana

Have you ever heard trees-trees sad? A queen fig tree (Ficus albipilaMiq) which grows quite far from the pedestrian path at Bogor Botanical Gardens shed tears when his body was slashed. On its beautiful stem are written human names, such as Adnan, DR, Dul, Dongkal, and Fikri. On another part of the piping stem there is the name Robi (heart mark) Regita. Right above the writing there is a symbol in the form of a house visible from the front. Further up, there is also a faint incision of the word Divine.

For some reason, our friends Diah, Thomas, and Ari, who happen to be practitioners and consultants of spiritual psychology, scheduled a visit to the Bogor Botanical Gardens from the beginning. Thomas, in fact, is known as a practitioner of Sukyo Mahikari, a discipline that uses divine light within oneself to revitalize spirit, mind, and body, and nurture the soul. Its practitioners believe that light represents divine wisdom, love, and will.
