Furthermore, as a pioneer in the development of spiritual tourism, InJourney will continue to ensure the readiness of infrastructure and other supporting facilities to welcome thousands of Buddhists and enthusiastic visitors.

“Active collaboration with the Central Government, Local Government, religious organizations and communities has been the main focus in ensuring the continuity of the event, which is expected to also have a positive impact on the local economy,” Maya said.

“Through a diverse and innovative range of activities, we hope to inspire visitors who attend to feel the depth of spiritual and cultural meaning contained behind the majesty of Borobudur Temple,” Febrina said.

IDM and Walubi jointly organized various supporting events such as Bakti Sosial (Free Medicine), Nyingma Monlam Indonesia, Larung Pelita Purnama Sidhi Festival, Merti Karuna Bumi Festival, Borobudur World Peace & Prosperity Event, Bhumi Mandala Festival, Padmastana Cultural March from Mendut Temple to Borobudur Temple and Mindful Walking Meditation which is to feel the sacredness of Borobudur Temple through pradaxina and meditation.
