Kanjeng Raden Ayu Mahindrani Kooswidyanthi Paramasi is the Princess of Java, Indonesia, who is known for her love for music and is also an avid pianist and a composer.
The Princess of Java went through a Sudhi Wadani Ritual on July 17, 2017, in the Pura Luhur Catur Kanda Pat Sari of Bali. This ritual can be described as an initiation into Hinduism, one of the major minority religions which are seeing a major boost as many are returning to its fold, attracted by its philosophy.
Sudhi Wadani ritual of the Princess was led by a Hindu priest, Ida Sari Galuh Wiku Sri Bhagawan Putra Natha Nawa Wangsa Pemayun, who hails from Bali.
It began with the purification ritual, followed by the priest chanting the second stanza of the Puja Tri Sandya (Narayana mantra), and the third, and also the last one being, the chanting of the Gayatri Mantram. After the ritual, the Princess of Java, Kanjeng Mahendrani, officially became a Hindu on July 17, 2017.
The Princess has also vowed that she will build a pasraman (ashram) in Bali which will boast of a blend of Javanese, Bali, and Nusantara culture.
