                      Offerings are the most important means of maintaining good relations with the invisible powers who together with human beings inhabit the island of Bali and who guard the sources of life. An Offering is foremost a gift. What presented to the deities it expresses the gratitude and thanks of the Balinese for the fertility of the earth, for everything that makes life on this planet possible. When offered to the demons it prevents them from disturbing the harmony of the universe.
