To schedule all the ceremonies, the Balinese people follow two separate and different calendars: Saka, a lunar calendar broken down into 12 months of 30 days each, and Pawukon, a calendar with only 30 weeks. 🌺🌺🌺 Saka was borrowed from ancient India, and takes its year zero (and its name) from the defeat of the Saka by the Indian Satavahana king Gautamiputra Satakarni in 78 A.D. Thus 2018 in our Gregorian calendar will be actually 1940 according to the Saka calendar. Because the ordinary Saka year is only 360 days long, an additional leap-month is added every 30 months to keep Saka synchronized with the solar year. 📅📅📅 The Balinese holiday Nyepi is the new year in the Saka calendar and will happen on 17th of March this year. Throughout the year, celebrations and offerings are scheduled according to the full moon and the new moon. For example, temple anniversaries (odalan) are always celebrated on a full moon. 🎊🎊🎊 The Saka calendar also lays out auspicious months for particular activities like weddings (schedule yours on the fourth or the tenth month of the Saka calendar – to do otherwise is to court disaster) ☀️☀️☀️ Hope you like our stories, so don't forget to press ❤️!

Did you know, that the number of temples on Bali is more then 20,000!! And this does not include the small shrines in every family compound, or the shrines put at crossroads all around Bali (the Balinese believe that demons congregate at crossroads, and must be appeased) 🌸🌸🌸 Every village in Bali has not just one, but three temples: 🔸Pura Puseh, dedicated to Lord Brahma who created the world: set on the highest spot of the village (swah), facing the mountains. 🔸Pura Desa, dedicated to Lord Wisnu, who maintains the world: set at the village center, the pura desa helps regulate the village's activities. As a sign of its importance in village-wide matters, the pura desa traditionally also holds the bale agung, a pavilion where villagers can meet and decide matters as a community. 🔸Pura Dalem, dedicated to Lord Siwa, the destroyer: the temple of death, the pura dalem is set at the lowest part of the village, often facing the sea, where demons reside (bhur). As the area of the village closest to bhur, the dead are often buried here as well. ⭐⭐⭐ Note how the temples are arranged in the three-tiered universe of swah, bwah and bhur prescribed by Agama Hindu Dharma. The Mother Temple of Pura Besakih is superior to them all, located on one of Bali's highest elevations. During important feast days, hikers climbing Gunung Agung are not permitted to ascend higher than Besakih, as nobody's head must be above the temple. ✨✨✨ Ph @alexpreview ☀️☀️☀️ Hope you like our stories, so don't forget to press ❤️!

Balinese gods and spirits do not exist in some ambiguous vacuum - the Balinese believe that they occupy the top rung in a three-tiered universe, as proposed by the ancient Hindu/Buddhist concept of trailokya. ✨✨✨ In Balinese triloka (as the concept is known on the island): ☀️Spirits and gods live in swah, the upper world. ☀️Flesh-and-blood people live in bwah, the middle world. ☀️Demons live in bhur, the lower world. 🌟🌟🌟 The holiest religious sites are built in places corresponding to swah, like mountains or hills. It's no coincidence that the holiest temple on the island, Pura Besakih, is located on the slopes of Bali's highest peak, and indeed the direction of Gunung Agung serves as a geographical marker for holiness in Balinese culture. 💛💛💛 Villages tend to have three temples, which follow the placement of swah, bwah, and bhur - for instance, the cemetery is placed next to the pura dalem, the temple of death, which is located at the lowest point of the village, corresponding to bhur. ❤️❤️❤️ Balinese carry over this up-down spiritual geography to their attitudes toward the human body. The head corresponds to swah, which is why it's considered extremely bad manners to touch anybody's head in Bali. The feet, similarly, correspond to bhur, which is why it's just as offensive to touch people with your feet in Bali 💫💫💫 Hope you like our stories, so don't forget to press ❤️!

Crusin’ through the rice fields of Ubud, Bali. We spent our Xmas Holiday here a few weeks ago and it feels like ages ago now! We were reminded of this as we are in the midst of a crazy snowstorm here in Japan, where we currently are. Will be excited to get the photos up from here soon but in the meantime those Bali views weren’t bad either! #whereveryouland

Did you know, that national motto of Indonesia, “Bhinneka Tunggal Ika”, means “One is many, many is one.” It was inspired by an Indonesian Hindu scripture, Sutasoma Kakavin. ❤️❤️❤️ And that's defilingly true, don't you think so? When you are alone, you are weak. But when you are with friends - you are the power! ⚡⚡⚡ Hope you like our stories, so don't forget to press ❤️!
