HOLY SPRING WATER “TUKAD SINGA”
One of the similarities between the Balinese Hinduism and the Hinduism from India is in the sacred rivers.
Hindus really valued the water springs because they think that water is one of the crucial human sources and that each and every one of the creatures on earth need water for life.
That is the main reason why the Balinese build temples in the rivers. In every village in Bali there are temples Beji and these temples always are located on the river. It is intended to express our sincere gratitude to the Dios Wisnu by have had clean water in our day to day.
Not only by the daily need, is the water in Bali an important element in all ceremonies.
Water that Hindu people use for ceremonies should be taken from the sacred springs because it functions as a Purifier.
There is a unique River front Villa Bali Ubud and is called Singa River.
If we translate it into English, is equivalent to The Lion River and has very clear water.
There is a spring sacred in this river and from there water can be taken for ceremonies and also for daily drink.
