Awakening Chakra Spirit
Start your holistic journey with a chakra meditation early in the morning, to open your chakra, followed by a purification led by a pemangku or Balinese priest. This process is called melukat, a purification ritual where water becomes the main medium to cleanse the physical, emotional and spiritual state of a person. As an essential part of Awakening Chakra Spirit, melukat helps to heal blocked energies and realign the seven major chakras. As the final step, coconut is served to freshen up the body and purge toxins from the inside.

The Balinese script, natively known as Aksara Bali is an abugida used on the island of Bali, most commonly for writing the Austronesian Balinese language and the liturgical language Sanskrit. The script is a descendant of the Brahmi script and has many similarities with the modern script of South and Southeast Asia. Aksara Bali, along with Aksara Jawa, is considered the most elaborate and ornate of all the Brahmic scripts of Southeast Asia. This script has a significant prevalence in many of the island’s traditional ceremonies and is strongly associated with the Hindu religion. Today it is mainly used for copying lontar or palm leaf manuscripts containing religious texts.

Unlike bullfights in Spain, Bali has cocks fighting. If you see a gathering of a large group of males in Bali, there is a good chance that one is being held. The cocks are prepared by their owners for the fight. When the battle starts, they are put face to face with their temperamental character, and they are allowed to start the fight with their “cocky behaviour”. The battle is only over when the blood of one of the cocks has flowed down the street. However, the question is, does the flowing blood of the cock represent a hobby that has gotten out of hand and involves gambling, or is it a religious cleansing tradition?
