Globalization provides the opportunities for the revival of the local cultural identity (local genius) worldwide. Local wisdom and local genius are part of culture in the perspective of Hinduism. It is a human and community policy referring to the philosophy, values, ethics, ways and behaviors having traditionally institutionalized in managing natural resources, human resources and cultural resources. Local genius is part of the local wisdom having been selected, tested and very superior in terms of quality locally and universally, so that it does not only play an important role for the formation of identity and pride, but also poses a potential for the development of cross-regional and cross-cultural competency.

For instance, one of the Balinese local wisdoms is the Tri Hita Karana denoting a policy of human and community based on the philosophy, values, ethics, ways and behaviors that institutionalized traditionally. Balinese daily life in protecting the environment is no less serious as what is done by environmentalists around the world.

Earth, Bali or Denpasar only gives what is necessary for humankind and not to satisfy the greed. This is in accordance with the development of ‘Green Hotel in Indonesianamely an attempt to increase the awareness, knowledge and application of the eco-friendly principles and rules and sustainable hotel.

In Hinduism, green symbolizes the Lord Shankar abiding in the northwestern posing the manifestation of God serving as the ruler of the environment with a variety of plant species that ensures the safety of life of every creature. Northwest is a place sanctified by the Hindus, so that every courtyard of the Balinese Hindu people is installed a tugu pengijeng karang shrine.

In the context of the Green Hotel in Denpasar, the hotel land area would be great if it is made green with ritual plants so that it becomes a ‘ritual plant garden’ and brings in benefits for the establishment of harmony between the state, society and the market in the development of Bali community-based sustainable tourism.(Dr. Ketut Sumadi, a member of assessor team of the Green Hotel Denpasar)
