White lie a la Balinese

To shed a better light on the topic of ‘white lie’, let us check first what Oxford Advance Learners Dictionary has to say on ‘lie’ and ‘white lie.’ In the context of untruthfulness, as a noun, the word ‘lie’ can be defined as ‘a statement made by somebody knowing that it is not true’ and as a verb, it is defined as ‘to say or write something that you know is not true. For the word ‘white lie,’ this dictionary defines it as ‘a harmless or small lie, especially one that you tell to avoid hurting somebody.’

Art and Religion

In Bali, dances, dances dramas and music are almost as indispensable part of a sacrificial ritual as the offering itself. Like an extravagantly supplemented canang offering, they are offered to the gods at home and temple festivals. Like incense, music rises to heaven as a vehicle for the uranian powers to come down to man.

Tips for Temple Visitor
July 05, 2007

If you plan to visit many temples or attend temple anniversary frequently, it will be better for you to bring your own sash or shawl and a sarong (if you have any, if not, you can buy it as soon as you step your foot on Bali's soil, buy it in traditional market or Sukawati art market, much cheaper there, don't forget to haggle). It worth all single rupiah you pay for, rather that rent a sarong or sash outside the temple.
