(2/1/2014)

Ethnic Chinese Indonesians in Bali began flocking to Chinese Temples across Bali on Friday, January 31, 2014 to mark the beginning of the multi-day celebration of Imlek 2565 – the lunar New Year.

Devotees brought traditional Chinese offerings, including flowers and incense.

Recitative prayers were chanted to welcome the coming “Year of the Horse” in the hopes of bringing prosperity to both the prayer-giver and the community as a whole.

The State News Agency Antara
quotes Ida Bagus Adnyana. the caretaker of the Griya Kongco Dwipayana Temple, located on the banks of the Badung River, saying: “The ritual of prayers will continue for 15 days more to celebrate the Lunar New Year.”

Adnyana explained that in keeping with the year of the horse, mankind must endeavor to anticipate each step ahead and make strategic moves in preparation for what lies ahead.

Adnyana continued: “Be alert to situations that cause concern and have the potential for conflict, including warfare. Hopefully it will not be too bad.”

At another temple, Vihara Satya Dharma at Benoa harbor, a number of people with Chinese ancestry are using the temple that formally opened last year.

In addition to local citizen, many Chinese tourists from China, Hong Kong and Taiwan in Bali on holiday are including prayer visits to local Chinese temples in Bali.
