Take Part in a Collective Island Prayer

It’s no secret that Bali, and the world have been off kilter since the pandemic began. With everything seemingly out of balance, a group of Balinese high priests have come together to form the 108 Bajra and to hold an event on January 2nd, 2022 called Bali Poleng. The aim of #balipoleng is to unite all people and religions to uplift the spiritual atmosphere of the Island.

It’s no secret that Bali, and the world have been off kilter since the pandemic began. With everything seemingly out of balance, a group of Balinese high priests have come together to form the 108 Bajra and to hold an event on January 2nd, 2022 called Bali Poleng. The aim of #balipoleng is to unite all people and religions to uplift the spiritual atmosphere of the Island.

Bali poleng Bajra

Bali has been known internationally as a spiritual destination. The committee of 108 Bajra believe that the Island can lead the way in inspiring spiritual action across the world. They also believe Bali needs to be bought back into balance, and that as a collective across the Island (and even across the world) that #balipoleng can help to do this.

Poleng refers to poleng cloth you often see wrapped around temples. It is black, white
& grey checkers. It is a representation of how two opposites (black & white), must coexist for there to be balance (grey).

On January 2nd the committee is asking everyone across the island (or indeed wherever you are in the world) to wear something Poleng (it could be a scarf, shawl, sash, sarong etc). Secondly at 6pm Bali time they are asking everyone to join in beating a Kulkul (a Balinese wooden or bamboo bell) for a total of 10 minutes. The idea is that right across the Island (and hopefully other parts of the world) the sound & vibration of the collective beating of the Kulkuls will help to bring our beautiful island back into balance.

It doesn’t matter where you are in Bali or in the world, or what religion you are. This is an open invitation to take part in an event designed to create unity and balance. If you are in Bali you can buy Poleng fabric & a Kulkul easily and inexpensively, simply ask some of your local friends and they will point you in the right direction. If you are not in Bali but wish to take part you can bang on a drum or something else wooden from 6pm Bali time for 10 minutes on January 2nd, 2022.

Whether you are at home, in a restaurant, in a temple, with friends, at school or anywhere,
you can participate in this Island wide event.
