Today, my morning offering at the river. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Many ceremonies are private, solitary communion with Spirit.⠀ Some, on a day like today, are filled with personal meaning but offered also, as a vehicle of inspiration. ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Then my friend Suzi in VT sent me a post from OnBeing in which I read these words from Padraig O Tuama:⠀ “Prayer is rhythm. Prayer is comfort. Prayer is disappointment. Prayer is words and shape and art around desperation and delight and disappointment and desire.”⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So I pray. I read poems at the river. The trees, the morning light, a dragonfly lands on my heart. ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ From David Whyte:⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “...That radiance⠀ you have always⠀ carried with you⠀ as you walk⠀ both alone⠀ and completely ⠀ accompanied ⠀ in friendship ⠀ by every corner⠀ of the world⠀ crying⠀ Allelujah.”⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Happy Birthday World.⠀ May this day begin a new cycle of healing⠀ and growth and adventure. May your⠀ prayers find flame. May your radiance alight.⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ XoS⠀ #dailypractice#dailycreativepractice#journal#dailywriting#powderkegwriters#backyardartcamp#womenwriters#womenwritersofinstagram#iwwg#fullmoon#inspiration#inspire#writing#manymoons#writingprompts#journaling#prayer#canagsari#offerings⠀ #onbeing#davidwhyte
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
