Hindu Oasis
by sudipta sarkar on Jul 01, 2009 11:17 AM  | Hide replies

Bali is a Hindu Majority Island in a Muslim majority Indonesia. Hindus constitute almost 90% of Bali's population. Bali is a like Hindu Oasis in the Far East. Bali offers everything - beautiful and spectacular Islands,beaches, cool hilly areas , volcanic mountains numerous mystical ancient Hindu shrines, Balinese architecture, performing arts and lovely people who practice Hindu Dharma. The Besaki Temple(which we call as Basuki, the serpent of Lord Vishnu)is the Mother Temple in Bali. A complex which has massive and ornate group of rock temples and a Shiva Temple complex, Brahma and Vishnu Temple complex. Some really beautiful Hindu shrines in the backdrop of nature are the Ulun Danu temple near the lake Batur, Tanah Lot on the Bali sea coast and the Ulun Danu Cliff temple. The best places to be in Bali are the cute and green ecolodges in the interiors of the Island adjacent to ethnic Hindu Balinese villages. Avoid Kuta and Sanur beach areas as they are heavily commercialised and the negative impacts of mass tourism will be visible.

Evil is in the eye of the person who sees things diferently, if your eye is good you will see good things and if your eye and heart is evil you will see every thing evil.

Hey, you got it all wrong. There is a hierachy of Gods. The series is infinite. You are god to bacteria, chicken, goats.

Not many Indians opt for Bali as a holiday destination though it is fast picking up. I went for my honeymoon to Bali in May and it was simply amazing. The photographs are nice and brought back memories of my wonderful trip.

God is here

on 13.6.09 ,Myself and my son went to a unique place some 210 km from Ahmedabad called Devi Mogra temple .Legends says that panvas along woth Kunti used to stay this place for 2 years and before actual temple there is another temple where Panvas took rest for a while .
Mata kunti used to workship one deity given by local tribal people some 5500 years ago and I was surprised to see the diety still exist and tribal populations from Maharastra,Madyapradesh ,Gujarat come in large no particularly on sunday .We too faced tremendous trouble to get in .Tibals offer here large no of hen,goat and farm products .

Our route was

1. By bus Ahmedabad to dediapara via Rajpipla --210 km --5 hours journey in which some 30 km magnificient ghat road journey comparable to himalayas roads

2. We stayed at Dediapara in Bharat Sevasshram Guest House .Swamiji of the Ashram has done tremendous job by giving shelter to some 70 tribal students with fooding lodging .This ashram is wonderfull place to stay .we stayed for saturday night and had very good foods supplied by the Ashram .The ashram itself a scenic beuty amidst backdrop of hills
3. Sunday morning we ventured out for 22 km ghat road journey (I have never seen such ghat roads with too much high and low roads with sharp bend .

We were there in Devi Mogra temple ,the only temple in India called Kunti Temple as well .
You must visit this place once
