Anything about Bali from its golden age, from art, customs, rituals, and many more. I mostly share textual perspectives;n what has been written down on traditional manuscripts.

FROM THE BLOG
Tantra, Mantra, and Yantra in Balinese Tradition: The discussion of Tantra, Mantra, and Yantra in Balinese Yogic tradition leads to the discussion of the mystical values of human beings. In Balinese Tantra and Yoga tradition, humans are viewed as a living mantra, a living manuscript, and a living yantra. Although the phrase Tantra, Mantra, and Yantra is not widely used in Balinese Tradition, its essence is the very soul of Balinese spiritual tradition.
Sarasvati and Sarasvati Day Balinese treatises on sacred days and related rituals in that day are entitled Sundarigama. In that manuscript, it is said that
Ongkāra (Sanskrit: Oṁkāra) is the essence of Balinese spiritual tradition. Ongkāra has always been an inseparable part of the socio-cultural and literary tradition in Bali.
