Indonesia: Bali 2 - Offering (Ceremonies and Rituals)

Indonesia: Bali 2 - Offering (Ceremonies and Rituals)

Bali is a place where ceremonies and rituals are an integral part of Balinese life, especially those of the Hindu faith, whose temples are found throughout the island; these are people who inspired by all that is creative, beautiful and divine. Host Sian Richards and her guide, Suyadnya, tour the home of the former king of Mengwi. Like most traditional homes here, it has a shrine dedicated to the gods; also its grounds features fierce gargoyles for frightening away evil spirits called Ogo Ogo. She meets Chef Heinz, who will prepare a Balinese specialty, Babi Gulling (suckling pig), for the evening meal. She discovers that Hinduism, Buddhism and Animism merge into a religion that is uniquely Bali and the spirit of devotion is expressed by many of the artisans who carry on local traditions. Sian meets Ida Marka in her woodcutter's shop to try her hand at the art of woodcarving. Because umbrellas are used in a variety of rights, she visits a ceremonial umbrella factory. She learns that dance is one of the most important aspects of Balinese life and her friend Panji explains that dances tell stories from the epic poem Brahmasmi or act out the eternal struggle between good and evil. 07/09DE JSCA 30 min.
