BALINESE CULTURE AND TRADITION Workshop

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

One of the foremost attractions of Balinese culture are the Pura (Temples), where some of the most beautiful and sacred Upacara (Ceremonies) occur. The Balinese are happy to share their traditions, culture and ceremonies with visitors from outside their communities. When visiting the Pura or attending ceremonies in Bali, it is customary, however, to follow the local guidelines & traditions.

Usada’s temple etiquette experience will explain those guidelines and the traditions behind them. Beginning with a talk and visual presentation, we’ll highlight proper attire, etiquette, offerings, prayers and the meaning behind them. In this presentation, we will also show slides of some of Bali’s most sacred Pura and clarify the reason for their respective directions and the deities that reside in each.

OUR HOST:

Putu Mahagiri is passionate about maintaining and preserving her Balinese cultural roots. She is Usada’s cultural liaison, born and raised in Peliatan, Bali. Besides, Putu is also committed to help empower women, especially Balinese, by offering sharing circles.
