Balinese Offering Workshop

 

Canang sari is one of the daily offerings made by Balinese Hindus to thank the Sang Hyang Widhi Wasa (God) in praise and prayer. Canang sari will be seen in the Balinese temples (pura), on small shrines in houses, and on the ground or as a part of a larger offering. 

The phrase canang sari is derived from the Balinese words sari (essence) and canang (a small palm-leaf basket as the tray). Canang itself consists of two syllables - ca (beautiful) and nang (purpose). 

Canang sari is offered every day to Sang Hyang Widhi Wasa (God) as a form of thanks for the peace given to the world; it is the simplest daily household offering. The philosophy behind the offering is self-sacrifice in that they take time and effort to prepare. Canang sari is not offered when there is a death in the community or family.
