Purnama and Tilem

“Full moon” and “new moon” days are special ones for Balinese people.
The philosophy of the lunar cycle (Purnama and Tilem) taught men that life is always filled with light and dark, good and bad, black and white, life and death, and two other things that will always be opposed or called Rwa Bhineda. Two opposite things will always come to men by turns. We should not be exaggerated when getting happiness. And conversely, do not overdo it when experiencing suffering. Because life will always be like that, there will always happiness and sadness.
(Inspired by Ubud – summer 2012)
