We think of it as a place Of dissolving old issues to make way for new beginnings.
As we moved from the middle courtyard to the inner courtyard we each began reciting our personal mantras (affirmations) and continued to do so through the prayed ritual.
Holy water and rice, flowers and incense, all part of the formula of Balinese worship. The locals respect our sincere interest in their faith.
I notice a chance in demeanor in the guides when they realize we are actually going to pray at the temple. Their Namastes change in some subtle way and their welcome increases.
