Fruit Bearing Trees and Sin Removal

Share it Please

The day of th full moon in Bali is caled "Purnama" and is a very special day. In addition to the every-day dozens of blessings and offerings that families get to perform to maintain the balance of spiritual energies in the Universe, extra full moon day offerings are placed on the ground at the home entrance

The village temple also receives a tower of fruit, flowers and other items and some kind of festivities ke place.

Purnama is the day to plant an apple tree, if you were ever going to plant one, or any fruit bearing tree for that matter because the fullness of the moon is certain to assure successful harvest.

And if you've been sinning recently, a bath in perfumed water (frangipani petals to be exact) under the light of the full moon wll wash your transgressions away. Sounds kinda sinfully nice all by itself.

Seeing Good At Work
I have been through the book three times over three years, and am starting it again. This is not because the material in the book is not working, but because it is working so well! The weekly lessons keep me on track and focused on what is actually true and important, and help me experience more good in every area of my life. LS
