Les travaux épigraphiques et archéologiques concernant le Champa ancien ont mis en avant, depuis longtemps, l’importance du bouddhisme dans le courant des 8e-10e siècles. Les textes conservés permettent de se faire une certaine idée de la forme du Mahâyâna pratiqué par les Cham à cette époque. Mais les témoignages archéologiques se font davantage l’écho du contexte culturel large et varié dans lequel s’inscrit ce mouvement bien original qui participe tant du monde indien

Venus: Death of a Planet
"From the fires of a sun's birth... twin planets emerged. Venus... and Earth. Two roads diverged in our young solar system. Nature draped one world in the greens and blues of life.

While enveloping the other in acid clouds... high heat... and volcanic flows. Why did Venus take such a disastrous turn?"

NOTE: There is very brief (a second), frontal female nudity of the antique sculpture of Venus. Narrated with English captions. Excellent computer animation.(22:09)
