For Ritual. For Balinese Beliefs. For Offering

Life is an offering

Dear Guests, when you visit the island of Bali,Although they are generally found in sacred places, like temples and household shrines, you will see many offerings everywhere from the beaches, shops, entrances to residences. The little pallets of offerings in Bali take so many different forms and would be one of the first things you feel in love with wandering the streets of Bali. These little tributes could be as simple as a small and fragrant frangipani adorning each and every step leading into a housing compound. Or more elaborate to guard the house’s doorway and appease the gods represented by statues throughout the house.

Offerings are actual representations of deities who are invisible to us. Their composition, the colours of their ingredients, and their cardinal location symbolize the presence of the gods. According to the Balinese beliefs, the offerings are represented gods in form, colour and essence.

Yoga is a form of meditation, peace and harmony, the purification of the physical body, leading into the purification of the mind. It can be used as a form of alternative medicine and as low-impact physical exercise. Yoga morning classes in Bali Mandira are held by the new rice paddies area, under a Balinese traditional structure “Joglos” , where you can hear the melodious rhythm from the singing birds and be impressed by the surrounding tropical natural views.
