Synopsis

The world has been struck by multiple natural disasters (earthquakes, landslides, volcanic eruptions, tsunamis), causing great suffering for the common people. Various corrupt officials are taking advantage of the situation, and things are getting worse. Arjuna, the princely hero from the Pandhawa family, has vowed to do something to help. He hears of a gift of inspired leadership the gods are planning to hand down to a worthy mortal-the legendary King Rama's philosophy of leadership from generations past. As the antagonist family of Kurawa brothers also struggles for possession of the god's boon the story unfolds, including numerous secondary plots about characters from the Ramayana (Wibisana, Kumbakarna, Dasamuka) who have yet to have peace in eternity, and are still working out their destiny. Finally, Arjuna meets with an ascetic up in the mountains, and receives the philosophy of inspired leadership which will lead to a more peaceful future.

This book contains the original Javanese transcipts of Purbo Asmoro's three live performances of Makutharamain classical, contemporary-interpretive, and condensed styles.
