Through the Eyes of Researcher: Buddhism in Bali

Here is an interesting writing on Buddhism in Bali by venerable S. Dhammika. It is interesting to see the point of view of a Buddhist Monk form outside Bali on Buddhism in Bali.

Eating Bantal as Chewing Bubble Gum

When you are in Bali, Bantal is a snack that worth for a try. Its delicious taste will joggle your tongue and coddle your teeth when you feel its smooth texture in you mouth and taste the delicious flavor on your tongue. And you will be surprised by the taste of the center of Bantal. What is in the center of it? Banana will welcome your tongue and give you the sweet taste of it. But sometimes, Bantal is not only has banana in it. It may be filled by uci, or rice bean, and it will look like constricted muscle

The Origin of Balinese opera
Sep 12, 2007

In 1825, I Dewa Agung Gede Kusamba of Klungkung, the highest in the rank of Balinese princes, died at the end of a fifty-year reign. His cremation ceremony was said to be one of the most magnificent in Balinese history. Lower ranked monarchs from all other Balinese kingdoms attended the ceremonies and contributed generously to the rites. Although the King had quarreled incessantly with his nominally subordinate neighbors, the King of Badung and Gianyar, they nevertheless dispatched court Gambuh dancers and musicians to participate in the ceremony. The combined group created a special new performance for the cremation.

Guest Comments

“The beach at Tanjung Benoa is not so overcrowded like other touristy areas on this beautiful island. The people are very kind and friendly; they have found a way to lead a balanced way of life. At The Bali Khama you can also feel this contentment as a foreigner as you relax and hear the sounds of tranquility. The staff will comply with all of your wishes. Just take a two hour journey of indulgence with a massage at the mahAlaya Spa. Dinner by the beach or an exotic BBQ is the perfect way to end the day. Have a look at the villas and make your choice. They are stylish instead of flamboyant, but still luxurious with an expressive design. A lovely ambience has been created by using exclusive materials. The Bali Khama is a paradise!” ~ Mr. Wolf-Elard Tewaag

“To be really honest my hotel stay at The Bali Khama was great. I received excellent service at the front office and in general all of the hotel staff was very friendly. My room was beautiful, the swimming pool and view was excellent and I thought it was a great place to stay.” ~ Mr/s. Ramesh V Badarajah
