Balinese Hinduism Coming of Age Ceremony
Whilst visiting Bali, we are sometimes privileged enough to get invited to religious ceremonies and rituals. One such event we were invited too was this coming of age ceremony in which young boy's must face a demon (in this instance a man in fancy dress with a big stick) to retrieve food and various treats, thus moving one step closer to man-hood.
Bangkim Carving a Happy Buddha
Bangkim working on a 40cm Happy Buddha statue. Statues such as this are renowned for their ability to provide the owner with luck. Simply rubbing their belly once a day and treating the statue with respect is enough to unlock the good fortunes of the Buddha.
