As reported on balidiscovery.com, on Thursday, March 30, 2006, Bali will again mark the official day of silence or "Nyepi." [ See: A Day of Silence Sealed with a Kiss]

Unique to the people of Bali, this is the one day each rotation of 12 Balinese months (approximately once every 420 days) when every one on the Island more or less disappears for 24 hours into a darkened world free of noise, light and other distractions.

Thomas Hogue, writing in the March 24th edition of the International Herald Tribune, does an admirable job of describing this special day on the Bali-Hindu calendar and how he, like many who have adopted Bali as their spiritual home, revels in the solitude and silence of the a 24-hour period in which the Balinese tell the rest of the world to "hush-up."

A Lesson the Bali Could Teach the World

Wondering if the Balinese celebration of silence shouldn't be celebrated on a world wide basis, Hogue focuses on how the world might benefit from a 24-hour respite from honking automobile horns, elevator music, and cell phones playing the latest cantopop hit.

"In Bali, a Holiday for the Ears" – available via the link below from the International Herald Tribune.

Find a quiet "Bali-moment" in your day and have a fun read.
