    Canang Sari

    Canang Sari

    A small offering of flowers and/or money placed on a tiny square tray woven out of coconut leaf. "Canang" refers to the tray, while "sari" refers to the "essence" of the offering which may be a small amount of money placed on top. Canang sari may be found all over the island, in small house shrines, in village temples, even on the ground! (To step on one unintentionally is not a terrible offense, so don't sweat it.)

    Canang sari is offered every morning by devout Balinese to show gratitude to the creator (Sang Hyang Widi Wasa). Canang sari requires a bit of effort to create, which adds meaning to the sacrifice being made. Balinese always offer Canang sari every day, except when there are some one death around village. The philosophy behind the offering is self sacrifice in that they take time and effort to prepare.
