In Bali about 80% of the population belong to Hinduism. Festivity or everyday life – on Bali religion is a formative force. Somewhere a festival is held on Bali every day, in order to preserve the harmony between man and the cosmos. Bali is Hinduism with thousands of temples, cultish dances, magnificent rites of rice cultivation and a fascinating death cult. Dances are still performed to win the good or ward off evil spirits. One pays homage to ancestors and is dedicating a ceremony to the gods.

Every day offering are made of rice, flowers and incense sticks. The Balinese put them to important places to express their gratitude for food, water, shelter, fire and defense against and appeasement of the demons, in honor to the spirits and Gods. The smoke of the incense stick serves as “transportation” for the essence of the offerings.
