Water

gede-palgunadiUNDENIABLY, human race around the world is considerably dependent on the existence of water. As the proverb says, in small quantity can be a friend, when growing larger turns to be an enemy. It’s the parable given to the presence of water. Though their existence is very important, not all people on earth can really understand about their existence. Even in many parts of the world, human beings do not maximally make an effort in conserving water. Instead, many of them undermine it. Dense forests are cleared so that many springs ultimately dry up as well as a lot of water catchments are converted into housing complex and other facilities.

For the people of Bali, the presence of water is exceptionally important. Philosophy of Balinese human related to water is so sacred dan poses a life cycle having a significant meaning. Balinese Hindus worship Lord Vishnu, the personification of God as the ruler of all the water substances in the world. On that account, every single ritual held by the Balinese Hindus always use water. Each ritual procession is inseparable from the sprinkles of holy water.

Likewise, in the cultural activities, as a society remaining to show off the agrarian face, the existence of water is definitely important. How can rice flourish without water? How can subak as a customary institution recognized by the UNESCO remain sustainable without the presence of water?
Behind all of them, it should also be questioned the commitment of Balinese people to the existence of water today. To be honest, the catchment area begins to decrease, many forests have been cleared, springs begin to dry and the designation area begins to change. Green belts only leave the board signs. It is a concern that must be addressed together.

On the World Tourism Day celebrated every September 27, the United Nations - World Tourism Organization reminds of the importance of water in the survival of human civilization. With the theme Tourism and Water: Protecting Our Common Future, all parties are expected to realize the importance of water for the survival of human life. Bali must also become a common concern, especially by the government. Culture and local wisdom inspired by Hinduism is not quite strong to preserve the presence of abundant water. It is also required a political will and strong sense of justice to make the water a source of human life in the universe. (Gde Palgunadi: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
