  Offerings
by balisunshine
 
 

Fire, water, and flowers
are all basic ingredients of the offerings.
Additional items, such as animals,
are given according to one?s
profession, wealth and season.

Only the finest ingredients
and ritually cleansed before are offered.

Because spirits dominate
everything that Balinese do,
they are constantly offering fruit and flowers
to appease the angry deities.

If the Balinese were to be put in
our western world of thinking,
they would most probably be thought of
as paranoiac beings with neurotic disorders.

But luckily?they are in Bali,
where believing and faith is
a part of every day life.

Namaste
