Bali prepares for Galungan

Photo credit:

Galungan, the Balinese holiday that occurs every 210 days and lasts for 10 days, is about to begin tomorrow July 6th. Galungan means “When the Dharma is winning”. During this holiday the Balinese gods visit the Earth and leave on Kuningan, the last day of the holiday.

Occurring once in every 210 days in the pawukon (Balinese cycle of days), Galungan marks the beginning of the most important recurring religious ceremony that is celebrated by all Balinese. During the Galungan period the deified ancestors of the family descend to their former homes. They must be suitably entertained and welcomed, and prayers and offerings must be made for them.

A thank you letter

A party organised in Bali Mandira last week ended with a great thank you letter from one of the guests. You can read it above or below:

For whom it may concerns

Thank you for the beautiful food this evening. We have eaten at all the amazing restaurants in Bali and tonight food was up there with the best of them. Especially serving such stunning food in a buffet style you should all be commended.

I own a restaurant in Perth. I have weddings all the time. I can say that everyone was impressed and throughout enjoyed. 

Many thanks to you and your fantastic bar, floor & kitchen staff.

Many thanks and kind regards
