Tri Hita Karana is a traditional philosophy for life on the island of Bali. The literal translation is roughly the “three causes of well-being” or “three reasons for prosperity.”

The three causes referred to in the principle are:

  • Harmony with nature or environment
  • Harmony with God

It is derived from the Balinese spiritualism and beliefs, which promotes harmony among fellow human beings through communal cooperation and promoting compassion; harmony towards God, manifested in numerous rituals and offerings to appease deities and harmony with their environment, which strife to conserve the nature and promote the sustainability and balance of the environment. Tri Hita Karana is credited for the island’s prosperity as a whole, its relatively stable record of development, environmental practices, and the overall quality of life for its residents.

One thought on “Bali Sacred by Tradition

  1. Thank you for following my blog. Your land is very beautiful. The philosophy of harmony between the people, God and the land is very appealing but the path you are taking to God misses the mark. I have great news for you! You don’t have to make daily ritual sacrifices to appease gods. There is only One God, and Creator of all that exists and He paid the sin price for us all by sending His one and only Son, Jesus to die in our place. For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God
    But the GIFT of God is eternal life though Jesus Christ our Lord. It was the law that put us to death but Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law being made a curse for us. For it is written cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree. God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son that whoever believes in Him might be saved. Isn’t that the best news you have ever heard?! But it gets better! If you accept Jesus into your heart He baptizes you with His Holy Spirit. God adopts you into His family and gives you His genetic code so His says you can come boldly before the throne of God and ask Him anything. He says call unto Me and I will show you great and MIGHTY things.

    I am so glad I can share this amazing and great news. Only One God and only One mediator between God and man, His Son Jesus Christ Who ever lives to make intercession for you. He Is YOUR Great High Priest. He loves YOU! He delights in YOU! He is calling YOU to live forever as God’s child! No more need to appease! God paid your way to Him once and for all. Jesus said I am THE WAY, THE TRUTH and THE LIFE. No one comes to the Father except by me. Any other effort to appease God misses the mark. Chose life!

    God bless you!
