Offerings

One beautiful trait of the Balinese is to prepare little offerings to their ancestors and gods. These are made up fresh daily and left everywhere, on the streets and sidewalks, in the family temples and to the protector spirits at every front door. Many offerings are crushed rather quickly by vehicles or feet; no matter – it is believed that the spirit takes up the essence of the gift the instant that it is presented.
