All around Bali is the tradition of offerings called “canang” (pronounce “chanang”). Every day, in every place, private, public or professional, Balinese are used to dispose these small square baskets made from cut coconut leaves, filled with flowers accompanied by an assortment of gifts for the Gods and crowned by a single stick of incense. The “canang” has a strong meaning in Balinese beliefs: it is not only a gift of gratitude to the Gods but also a kind of self sacrifice, part-meditation and part-escape from the buzz of everyday life.
