Bali, Indonesia

There are so many sacred sites on Bali dedicated to Purification, that the entire island can be seen as the World Purification Centre. Sites of particular note are: The four Sacred mountains on Bali - Gunung Agung, Gunung Batur, Gunung Batakau, and Gunung Ingas. Tanah Lot is also an important place of purification. This temple is connected to the Immortal Danghyang Nirartha.

Balinese rituals are devoted to cleansing the world of negativity. Purification dissolves illusion.

Bali, the only Hindu island in Indonesia, is where the Rainbow Serpent and Plumed Serpent meet to form a zigzag pattern (Swastika) as they cross this beautiful land. These deviations slow the earth currents down so that the processes of purification can be more easily performed. The swastika, a hindu symbol, is predominant in Balinese architecture and culture and represents happiness, longevity, and prosperity.

"We are the Measure of All Things.
And the Beauty of our Creation, of our Art,
is proportional to the Beauty of Ourselves,
of our Souls."

"Let's record the dying century and the birth of another man…
Let's surround the earth with our cameras, hand in hand,
lovingly; our camera is our third eye that will lead us out
and through … Nothing should be left unshown or unseen,
dirty or clean: Let us see and go further,
out of the swamps and into the sun."

-- Jonas Mekas

 

Borobudur, Java, Indonesia

Borobudur has been referred to as being "The Universe itself symbolised in carven stone". It was built as a Buddhist temple, in what is now an Islamic country. More than 1,000 years old, there are 72 Buddhas that represent the 72 Bonded-Partnerships of Earth Chakra Work destined to unfold this century.

Borobudur forms a Bonded Partnership with Inspirational Hong Kong (Gate 14).

 


Mount Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia

Mount Kinabalu is the highest mountain in Southeast Asia, at over 4000 metres. It's in a national park, and can be climbed. Most people hire a guide and devote three days to the climb.

Mount Kinabalu forms a Bonded Partnership with Yap Island in Micronesia - the Structural Component of Gate 46.

 
Alchemical meditation for the World Purification Centre:
 
Let the Forces of Purification cleanse the world

Let fires of Praise burn within the Hearts of all Beings,
Dissolving all Illusions.
