Clear evidence of implementation of Tri Hita Karana in Bali

Tri Hita Karana concept

Tri Hita Karana is the basic concept of life in Bali, to always be happy and harmonious life on earth. Because human can not live alone in this world, not only among human beings, as well as to other living creatures. Animals and plants are part of human life on this earth. Therefore, Hindus in Bali using the concept of Tri Hita Karana in order to stay happy in this life.

Application of the concept of Tri Hita Karana in Bali is very clearly visible in everyday life. Not only in religious activities, as well as in social life, and also to the animals and plants that always apply harmony together. Tri Hita Karana concept consists of three parts, that is relationship between human and God, human relationship with human, and human relationship with nature.

Human relationship with God has been evidenced by the temple as a place of prayer to pray to God. In every village, there are at least two temples as a place to pray. Each village with two temples that have meaning and different functions. Pray by using the offerings as a form of human devotion to God for the life that has been given.

Human relationships with other humans is evidenced by the organization of traditional customs. For example Subak, Village People, Tempek, Banjar. Every person shall become a member in an indigenous organization in a village. If joining a customs organization, then any activity within a household can be either mutual help fellow members. For example, in the cremation ceremony, cremation ceremony performed together in an indigenous organization. This relationship should be maintained properly.

Human relationship with the universe and its contents, ie animals and plants, as well as to the earth as a human habitation, should be preserved and cherished. Implementation of humans in maintaining good relations with the universe and its contents can be seen from the ceremony to plant, to animal ceremonies, and ceremonies for the earth. In Bali ceremony for animals and plants is common. It was a tradition that is still maintained properly. By performing the ceremony to animals and plants, humans unconsciously will have a high affection for nature.

However, the impact of globalization and the development, impact on the reduction of human consciousness to love this nature. Animals hunted to extinction, the plant is cut down completely, and the earth polluted by toxic waste, so the natural balance becomes disturbed.

Through the concept of Tri Hita Karana, humans must develop a sense of the love of all that is associated with this life. In order for the world in which we live has always been a comfortable place to live. No more need to search for new planets for a place to live. Because human life is a real place on earth. Hopefully the concept of Tri Hita Karana has always been a role model in life on this earth.
