Nearly 90 percent of Indonesians identify as Muslim, but on the island of Bali, Hinduism is most common. Women place canang sari, or small gifts including flowers and incense, in front of their shop or home as daily offerings for the Hindu gods.
CANANG SARI #TheCanangSariSeries. Walking around Ubud, I noticed that theseoogled Changa and found out that’s actually a drug :/..... sooo a little more research I found the correct name -Canang Sari, and they are laid out everywhere. They are laid out as a practice of the #Hindu religion, and every morning they’re placed outside and around temples (which are literally everywhere) as an offering to the Hindu gods (and demons). They’re also just beautiful to photograph and are handmade every morning
Making and giving of "Canang Sari" is a form of selfless act; a kind of self-sacrifice. . Some weirdos in the background too 😜 . November 2017 // Bali 🇮🇩
Canang Sari is one of the daily offerings made by Balinese Hindus to thank the Sang Hyang Widhi Wasa in praise and prayer. This offering will be seen in the temples, on small shrines in houses, on transportation and on the ground or as a part of a larger offering. Each flower's color and position represents four of their gods: Iswara, Brahma, Mahdeva and Vishnu.
The Balinese Hindus believe Canag Sari is form of thanks for the peace given to the world. The philosophy behind the offering is self-sacrifice in that they take time and effort to prepare. #MorePeace#CanagSari#ConnectTheCulture
