Hindu Purification Ceremony at Holy Waterfall:
Armed with beautiful and natural scenery, hidden secret spot in the jungles, this hidden temple remains ancient and the most magical and sacred place on the whole island. The powerful energy what was cultivating here for centuries, makes this place very special and unique. While winding descent down the staircase, you feel it’s supreme tranquil and peaceful atmosphere. Passing through the upper temple, it is hard to miss incredible stone carvings covered with a green moss and sprinkled by the drops of water. This memorable and profound ceremony starts with a praying’s and offerings at the middle shrines, like a gentle reminder that we have to be thankful for this beautiful world we live in and for this place to giving us a chance of a lifetime experience that will stay with you forever. Approaching closer to the main area of a temple, body starts to shimmer a little bit as the energy of the source is so powerful that you feel it in a distance. Wearing traditional sarongs, we enter the crystal clear water pond to stand under the waterfall and purify our soul, our mind and clear our negative energies and thoughts. The water is rushing on the shoulders and the head, at the same time you start to feel extremely light and absolutely pure. You are just standing there embracing every moment.
After the holy shower, we enter the main temple for the offerings and blessings from the priest for a good fortune and prosperity. Complete relaxation and still mind, reminds within your body and soul long time after the ceremony.
The Holy Springs: Bali’s Sacred Pool for Purification
For over a thousand years, Balinese Hindu worshipers have been drawn to Holy Water Temple. In early morning, when the first prayers are done by the local priests, we will marvel the beauty and enchanting magical atmosphere of Tirta Empul Temple. Approaching closely to the entrance temple, first offerings are performed to ask the place for permission and giving us the blessings to continue with a purification ceremony. Holding small hand-made flower offerings, we are praying for today’s gracefulness and allowing this space to purify our body and soul.
Moving slowly to the main courtyard, you can notice aged Banyan-trees, like real guardians who are keeping this place so quiet and holy. Passing through smoothly carved statues of Gods and Goddesses, we enter a main bathing area, with 30 holy springs separated into two sacred pools. Few more minutes, to devote for prying and blessings and now we are standing and waiting to dip our heads under the water spouts. As the Holy Water is pouring down on the head, ask to release a negative energy, fears and hurts or anything else what are blocking from moving forward. Behind the purification pools is the place for our final step. Last praying at Hindu shrines for today and blessed and purified we are ready to come back home.
You can not find a better location to treat your body & mind like the heart of Bali. Deep in the mountainous centre of Bali, among jungles and lush rice paddies, there is a small town considered to be the Indonesian island's spiritual and cultural capital.
