A Journey To A Holly Temple
Ceremonies are becoming very important aspects to do for Balinese Hindu in Indonesia and this such traditions make Bali as a unique and charming in every way. The Hindu ceremonies themselves are quite complicated. Tirtayatra is derived from the Sanskrit, Tirta and Yatra
Tirta means spring, river, water purity, toya or holy water whhile the Yatra means travel. Tirtayatra is a sacred journey to get or obtain the holy water. According to Hindu tradition, a visit to a holy place is not only a physical act but it also implies mental and moral discipline. Pilgrimage to sacred places is accepted as a desirable practice to earn religious merit (Phala) within a life lived according to ‘dharma’. It is one of the ways towards self‐realisation and bliss.
My Hotel Bali will do Tirta Yatra ceremony that will be held next Saturday 16 April 2016 at Pulaki Temple, Kerta Kawat Temple, Pemuteran Temple and Melanting Temple in Singaraja.
