Bali, the Islands of Blessings and Offerings

Bali is an island of blessings.  The name Bali is related to the word "Wali" which means offering, and offerings are the heart of the local Hindu faith.

The Heart of Hindu Culture

The majority of the population on Bali practices Hinduism.  Temple ceremonies are an important part of the Balinese Hindu culture and every temple ceremony includes blessings and offerings.  They are colorful, beautiful, and spiritually significant.  I would love to show you the wonderful spirituality of our culture and serve as your guide and driver around Bali.

Decorated for Blessings

Temple ceremonies are scheduled based on the Balinese lunar calendar, recurring every six months or 210 days.  During temple ceremonies, the shrines and the buildings are decorated, and the people visiting the temple dress in traditional clothing.  Visitors are welcomed, and are expected to observe appropriate temple dress.  I can help you have a meaningful visit.
