The Pledge For Bali

With the cessation of worldwide travel, now is the time to reimagine the future of Bali, an island whose culture and environment have been under tremendous strain from mass tourism. With your Pledge and that of thousands of others, we hope to strengthen Balinese traditions and protect its beauty for locals, visitors, and all future generations.

 

The Pledge is inspired by the ancient Balinese philosophy of Tri Hita Karana whereby each person seeks to live in harmony with their Spirituality, Environment and Community. This philosophy is rooted in the belief that by striving to make tangible, positive impacts in all three components of Tri Hita Karana, we achieve a sense of wellness, harmony, and peace. 
 



Tri Hita Karana - Three Ways to Wellness

Be The COMMUNITY You Want To Have

Essentially, we are emotional and social creatures. I cannot thrive if others are not thriving too, so FOR ME TO BE WELL, WE ALL NEED TO BE WELL.  In supporting one another, we are supporting the world. We need harmonious relationships. We want to give. We are one.

Stay Close to NATURE

I am one with Mother Nature. The air we breathe, the water we drink, and the food we savour are the keys to our future. With my choices and activities I will do my part to respect the nature of Bali. If we continue to over-exploit nature without giving back, all life will be harmed.  We are nature, we are our environment.

Honor the SPIRIT OF BALI 

I am part of the Universe and respect the harmony and balance between myself and all that is. Traditional Balinese spiritual practices respect this harmony and balance. No matter what my own faith is, I  will honor Balinese traditions and practice living in harmony and balance. We celebrate unity in diversity.

I am in Bali because I want to be well.

To be well I pledge to:

Protect Bali's natural resources and environment.

Be in harmony with my local community.

Respect the cultural and spiritual essence of Bali.

To be well, we all need to be well.

We are one.
