Guided by a Balinese spiritualism researcher, we explore a jungle temple, an ancient meeting point for priests crafting the year’s calendar. The personal experience unfolds with insights into connecting with the divine. Moving to Tirtha Mengening, a sacred but seldom-visited temple, a Balinese priest conducts a purification ritual, followed by a dip in Holy Spring-fed pools.

    To begin our journey, we will visit Taman Ayun, a temple that holds royal significance and is located in Mengwi.

It originates from the island of Java and has been utilized for centuries by both humble villagers and the “Keraton” royal family, contributing to its widespread use across Indonesia. To conclude the day, we will gather at Tanah Lot, the most photographed temple in Bali, to witness the mesmerizing sunset over the west coast of the island.

  • Day 6: Southern Beach | Meditation - Yoga Dasa Aksara

    Bali is renowned for its rich culture and natural beauty. A spiritual experience in Bali is a unique and unforgettable journey that will leave a lasting impact. During your holiday, we will introduce you to a Guru who has possessed his extraordinary abilities since birth and has dedicated his life to the practice of healing and meditation. He imparts a universal method to provide you with a profound experience of our religion.

    The term “Dasa Aksara” comprises two Balinese words – “Dasa,” which signifies ten powers, and “Aksara,” which means “Holy Hurup, Holy Symbol, Sacred Key to the universe.” Therefore, Dasa Aksara represents “spiritually guided life force energy.”

    A Dasa Aksara treatment feels like a radiant, comforting energy that flows through and around you. It treats the entire person, addressing the body, emotions, mind, and spirit, leading to numerous beneficial effects, including relaxation and a sense of peace, security, and overall well-being. Many have reported experiencing miraculous results. This treatment harnesses the innate power of the fundamental characters that already exist within every human being.

    The healing session includes the following:

    1. Analysis based on your birthdate, physical condition, and a personal interview.
    2. A “Melukat” water bath ritual, which incorporates the use of various flower colours, serving to purify your energy field.
    3. Meditation for self-healing, gaining clarity in life, nurturing personal growth, deepening your spiritual path, and the practice of “Rajah.” This involves inscribing the Dasa Aksara (Ten holy letters) on your body. These ten letters act as a kind of password, connecting you to the universe.
