What you'll do

*****I have paused this experience presently, however I would be delighted to bless you online, through Zoom on AirBnB online experience platform. Balinese Water Blessing Ritual *****

www.airbnb.com/experiences/1675929.

This will be one of the most magical spiritual experiences you will have when visiting Bali.

I will greet you with a smile at 6am.

On our drive we will have a discussion about the ancient Balinese Hindu Culture, I love answering questions and sharing my knowledge.

I will explain the rituals that will take place when we arrive at the beautiful Village where the Holy Spring Water Temple is situated.

We will give gratitude for entering this sacred space. I will guide you through our ancient Hindu prayer process before entering the temple. I study ancient Balinese Hindu text, which includes Sanskrit and understand the complicated processes.

My intention is to share our mystical culture in a fun way, to give you behind the scenes moments to fully immerse in the process with local Balinese visitors.

We will bathe with the locals under the Holy Springs & hear the fascinating stories in mystical surroundings.

The cool water has healing properties, after bathing in the Holy Springs you are guaranteed to feel rejuvenated and fresh.

For some this can even be a spiritual awakening or healing experience.
Other things to note

My name is Made and I am Balinese.

I have been in tourism almost as long as I have been speaking.

My first job was in the Sangeh Monkey Forest playing Bali traditional music with an instrument called the Gambalan when I was only 6 years old.

I have been lucky to meet friends from all over the world who have helped me learn the English and Japanese language, which I speak well.

I love Bali and enjoy sharing our Balinese Hindu Culture.

I love Soccer and support our team Bali United. I look forward to welcoming you on our special Holy Purification Tour soon.

Ive done tons of Airbnb experiences. This was My favorite day in Bali. Made greeted me with such kindness and enthusiasm I knew I picked the right experience. You are doing yourself a disservice if you miss out on this one. I was feeling laden with some heavy news back home and after praying with Made, cleansing In the holy pools, witnessing picturesque rice fields and a coffee plantation I had this deep sense of calm wash over me. Made brings the perfect blend of knowledge, kindness, and good humor to his introduction to Bali’s spiritual center. I feel lighter somehow in ways I can’t explain. This experience meets you in many ways. Do this one for both cleansing and enjoyment. You won’t be disappointed.

If you want something out of the ordinary with a true Balinese feeling pick this experience with Made. He is genuine and knowledgeable. I could never have done this on my own and it would have been a real shame to have missed it. I have been traveling in Southeast Asia for 2-1/2 months and this is at the top of my list of the life changing experiences I have had! Thank you so much Made!

Wat een fantastische ervaring! Mocht je twijfelen aan de prijs -> niet doen. Dit is het volledig waard! Made was keurig op tijd en was vanaf het eerste moment heel vriendelijk. Hij had een tas met serong en handdoek voor mij bij zich evenals een flesje water. Vanwege het vroege tijdstip was het heerlijk rustig op de weg en waren wij rond 06.45 uur als allereerste bezoekers bij Pura Tirta Empul. Made had op al mijn vragen een antwoord en vertelde zelf veel. Zo leer je echt de Balinese cultuur kennen. Hij legt alles rustig stap voor stap uit en neemt je volledig mee in het ritueel. Ik voelde mij zo één met de cultuur en als herboren kwam ik uit de holy water tempel. Groot pluspunt is ook nog eens dat Made fantastische en veel foto’s neemt. In mijn serene toestand vertrokken wij rustig naar de koffieplantage en als afsluiter de bekende rijst plantages. Als solo (female) traveler kan ik deze ervaring tevens zeer aanbevelen. Ik voelde mij op mijn gemak, veilig en heb prachtige foto’s aan deze mooie ervaring overgehouden. Dikke 10+!

MADE was one of the most amazing tour guides I could have been so lucky to meet. So much of our day was filled with confirmations that we were meant to meet. He was kind, informative, patient, intuitive and very generous. He really makes sure you get a peaceful a serene experience by arriving early. We were some of the first people on location so it felt more intimate and personal with me and my purpose in being there. It was amazing! I left with so many smiles and soooo many great photos! MADE is a great photographer! He knows exactly how to capture the moment. I highly recommend!

Made is a wonderful man and this experience was truly incredible. Probaly the most special thing I did in Bali and there were so many special things! Made made sure we were there before everyone else so you can really engage and feel the energy of the place. I was able to go through the entire ritual with just Made and myself being the only people there, it was truly such a sacred experience and one that I will hold dear to my heart forever.
