I was fortunate enough to go to Bali a few years ago and these images remind me of how life on this Indonesian island still maintains its dignity and compassion. Prabhakar portrays a timelessness in the culture of this little country that has a similar size population to that of Wales, a culture that communicates through music and dance.
Bali has a Hindu minority that is nevertheless visible and integrated into the consciousness of the people. Shrines are everywhere and burning incense and rice offerings are familiar aspects of day to day life. From this devotional grounding has developed a rich culture.
Music is central to Sri Chinmoy, who visited a few times, and I am sure that this trip brought back a lot of memories for his students who have returned to Bali and which remains a natural environment conducive to connecting with the deeper rhythms that move in and through us on our journey. Thanks for the photos.
