Bali My Love

Written by Gede Prama

Not a few of the world leaders who called Bali as a heritage of world peace. The beautiful island is the last paradise to maintain the world peace. In connection to this, it is worth reflecting on the symbol of Udayana University as the oldest University in Bali. In the perspective of Buddhism, this symbol is similar to turning the wheel of Dharma.

The traces of the meaning is that we must continue to spread the holy teachings. Never use holy teachings to hurt others. Use this sacred teachings to find beautiful symphonies inside your soul. While remembering, he/she who found their inner symphony is also beautifying the earth.

In the perspective of Hinduism, this symbol resembles Chakra. The guiding message is take a good care of the Chakras inside of your body. Seeing the signs where the corona virus attacks are most massive, it occurs in places where the negative news are also very massive. This is a sign that you need to keep a good care of your throat chakra in particular. At least by not adding to the long list of verbal violence that has been long existed.

Because the heart chakra is very close to the hara point (the central point inside), keep your heart chakra as beautiful as possible. The best possible thing to do is by helping a lot of people. If you can not help, please do not hurt. While keep in mind, behind the island of Bali there is an old forest in Peru (based on geographical location). There was found a very old message that said: “There is no coincidence, only guidance”.

Guided by this light of understanding, always remember this cosmic message. The scariest terrorist bombing occurred 11-9-2001 in the US, which was followed by a lot of violence. In the following year, 12-10-2002 (all numbers plus by 1), a terrorist bomb exploded in Bali. Followed by non-violence (ahimsa). A US woman was even written a beautiful conclusion: “Delicious food found in Italy, beautiful prayers heard in India, beautiful love found in the island of Bali”

About the author

Gede Prama

Gede Prama started his spiritual journey through a dialogue with his symbolic Guru in a village at the north of Bali. The journey is then being enriched with his experiences of studying abroad, his meetings with the world greatest spiritual Gurus: His Holiness Dalai Lama, The Venerable Thich Nhat Hanh, as well as Professor Karen Armstrong; and also being deepened by his intense meditation practices.

Despite the fact that he was once a CEO of a large corporation with thousand of employees, and was traveling abroad frequently for the purpose of teaching, yet, being deeply moved by the Bali bombing incident in 2002, he then decided to leave everything and went back to his home island.
He has never leave Bali for the past few years. In fact, he rarely leaves the silence of the forest where he lives, except for the purpose of teaching at the sacred sites within Bali.
