Om Swastiastu Samua!

Today's photographic treat from Bali features a troupe of beautiful young Balinese girls performing traditional dance in Jimbaron, Bali.

Beautiful young girls perform traditional Balinese dance in Jimbaron, BaliI appologize for the graininess of the image as I had to take it with my iPhone and it was fairly dark. Nevertheless, I had to share the expression on the adorable girl's face toward the back as she looked over to us.

This shot was taken while on our Bali Art and Culture Tour. We will be leading more traditional art and culture tours in the future and we will be staying at this increadible new Eco-Resort. Check them out. The facilities feature a state of the art spa, a huge open air yoga studio, and they serve organic healthy and delicious food that they grow in thier own organic permaculture garden. We can't wait!


Bali Photo of the Day ~ Tirta Empul and The Sacred Springs of Tempak Siring

Salamat Pagi Samua! (Good Morning Everyone)

Today we bring you a photograph from Tempak Siring Temple. Tempak Siring is home to the most holy natural spring in Bali called Pura Titra Empul. Pictured are a local group of Balinese Hindus giving offerings to the sacred springs. After the prayers are completed they will ceremoniously bathe in each of the spouts (except one that remains for the deceased).

Our recent Art and Culture Tour paid a visit to Tirta Empul for a very special private cleansing ceremony. It was very moving and brought several of us to tears. More on the ceremony and Tempak Siring coming soon in a blog post. More photos from Pura Tirta Empul and the sacred springs can be seen here.

Bali Photo of the Day ~ A Woman brings her Offering to Temple

Todays Bali Photo takes us to a small village in central Bali called Keliki.

Keliki Village is well known for its painting style which depicts Balinese village life in the 1930's. The works are full of small details and the works are often miniature. A detailed painting can take over a year to create and may contain thousands of people in everyday activities such as going to temple much like this woman is doing here. Other depictions may include cremation ceremonies, cockfights, preparing of offerings, dance performances, etc.

Offerings for the Temple Odelon

This kind woman worked for a couple days with her family to create a beautiful offering that she is taking to the local temple for the annual Odelon Ceremony. A Temple's Odelon is the anniversary of the temple and occurs every 210 days as that is the lenght of the Balinese calendar.


Bali Photo of the Day ~ Young Girl at Beach Ceremony

Om Swasti Astu samua,

Bali Beach Sunset Ceremony

Today's Bali photo of the day is from an elaborate beach ceremony in the seaside village of Jimbaron. Our Bali Culture Tour got extrememly lucky on this day as we headed to Jimbaron for our farewell seafood feast complete with lobster, fresh fish, huge shrimp, fresh veggies, coconuts and more. I would love to say that we planned the tour on this evening because we knew the huge celebration would be going on, but as with many cultural events in Bali, they just seem to appear out of nowhere. Thousands of people decended on the beach to either witness or partake in an evening ceremony.

It was a beautiful site as hundreds of Balinese dressed in fine temple gear gathered together just before sunset.
