TEMPLE

Last weekend I took the opportunity to see the tempel called Tirta Empul. This is a place where you can purify your soul.

Balinese have been coming to this spot for more than 1000 years just to do the same as we know- to wash the bad energy away. Its still a very popular Tempel for ritual purification.

The water flows direct from the Pakerisan River and its made from stones. Indra, a Hindu god created this magical Temple. You’ll get a sarong to wear, you have to put all of your clothes off. Its very important to follow all of the instructions and rules.

When you get in the water, I felt diffrent. It was a feeling I never had before. I was overhelmed because of this magical moment. In this moment, you will forget the 1000 other persons right behind of you.

The ritual is: to say a prayer before your wash your head 3 times per each waterbubbler. You can also bring offerings and flowers with you. That was what I did.

In the end I felt like I was taking part in something truly special.
