This issue is focused on Srivijaya. Since much of the history of this ancient maritime kingdom is yet to be uncovered, it has been an object of many ongoing studies. One of the excavations continually undertaken in Palembang — reputed to be one of its ancient capital — brought to view the maitreya reproduced in our cover. Maitreya is another term for bodhisattva.
