Legian Mind, Body and Soul Festival

Legian Mind Body and Soul FestivalThe pristine culture and the arts of Kuta community are introduced through a remarkable event entitled the Legian Mind, Body and Soul Festival. The event intended to enhance the faith awareness and spiritual balance was organized in the Wana Santi Ashram, Legian. The festival taking place for three days (Oct 25-27) was quite interesting because it involved Kuta community as well as foreign tourists.

Aside from showing off various types of the arts, the first festival was filled with the exhibition of organic agricultural products. They started from organic rice, vegetables, sweet potato and other kinds of food. Similarly, it was also exhibited some useful plants, Chinese-like auspicious wrist watch and meditation activities.

The event could draw a great attention when foreign tourists showed off their capability of cooking Balinese traditional food. Chairman of the festival committee, Nyoman Sarjana, said the Hindu-inspired festival is intended to preserve the culture and introduce the Santi Wana Ashrama of Legian having a variety of rare plants. “The area spreads across 1.5 hectares and we use it for growing a variety of rare plants as well as a medium of spiritual learning,” he said.

The ashram, he added, was taken advantage as a venue of learning about the arts for younger generation. There, they could learn to play gamelan music, dance to chant the Hindu psalmody. “We have a cak a cappella troupe consisting of young generation that will be presented every week on Sunday in this ashram,” he revealed.
