Canang & Mbanten
Sometimes I feel Bali is not like Bali anymore. In a sense that you could meet lots of people, mostly white people, from all over the world that in some place you'll see less locals. This place has become a hot spot for international citizen to meet and interact. In the same time though, Baliness still hold on to their culture and religion. Despite the life style that are more modern and jointed with western style at some point, when it comes to their gods and tradition, Baliness people are as obedience as ones you could imagine.
Since they're a kid, children in Bali from Hindu family are taught how to mbanten. A procession to pray and present canang (the gift to Gods, consist of flowers and some other things) to the Gods. You can find lots of canang on the streets whenever you're in Bali, on the beach, under a big tree, in the car, in front of the gate of houses, in front of every door of a store, everywhere. Baliness believe in the spirits all around them and by giving them the gift to feed them, they believe the spirits will help them back as well.
