In balinese hinduism people try to maintain a balance between the the gods and the demons. It’s all about harmony in life, and to behave well to get a good reincarnation. To achieve that, you have to pray several times a day, and satisfy both the gods and the demons.
Every day on Bali the women pray and make offerings. They are so graceful in their sincerity. With their elegant hand movements they send the smoke from incense sticks to the gods. The offerings on the ground are for the demons, and those on the altars are for the gods.
