Charity Visit To Yayasan Bunga Bali.

Prime Plaza Hotel & Suites Sanur-Bali is continually contributing to society through some social activities; one of them is through a charity program. One of the foundations we are currently supporting is Yayasan Bunga Bali.

Yayasan Bunga Bali is a foundation that supports people with special needs and disabilities ranging from 1- 40 years old. We visited them on September 13th, 2018. Their aim is to ensure that each individual reaches her/his potential to lead a life with dignity and independent living skills. Their program includes: handicrafts, paintings, traditional Balinese dance and orchestra. Yayasan Bunga Bali is working towards economic self-sufficiency, and self-reliance through the sale of handicrafts. We help them sell their products, (at cost) which are available for purchasing at Prime Plaza Suites Sanur - Bali. We also handed some donations during our visit.

Everyone at the Yayasan has been trained to make wooden handicrafts. For them, who were not seen as employable in the past, they have gained a sense of worth in the community, and their confidence levels have skyrocketed. We are glad that we are able to give contribution to the society in the need.
If you have anything that you would like to donate, Prime Plaza Hotel and Suites Sanur - Bali is happy to ensure that it gets to the orphanage. 

Prime Plaza Hotel & Suites Sanur-Bali terus memberikan kontribusi kepada masyarakat melalui beberapa kegiatan sosial; Salah satunya melalui program amal. Salah satu Yayasan yang kami dukung saat ini adalah Yayasan Bunga Bali.

Yayasan Bunga Bali adalah sebuah yayasan yang mendukung dan membantu orang-orang dengan kebutuhan khusus dan berusia mulai dari 1- 40 tahun. Kami mengunjungi yayasan ini pada tanggal 13 September 2018. Tujuan mereka adalah untuk meningkatkan potensi setiap orang dibawah naungan yayasan ini agar dapat menjalani hidup yang layak dan memiliki keterampilan hidup mandiri. Program mereka meliputi: keterampilan dalam membuat kerajinan tangan, tari tradisional dan gamelan khas Bali. Yayasan Bunga Bali bekerja untuk mengembangkan swasembada ekonomi, dan kemandirian melalui penjualan kerajinan tangan. Kami membantu mereka menjual hasil kerajinan tangan yang tersedia dan dapat dibeli di Sanur Paradise Plaza Suites. Pada saat berkunjung kami juga menyerahkan beberapa bantuan. 

Semua orang di Yayasan telah dilatih untuk membuat kerajinan dari kayu. Mereka yang dulunya tidak dianggap bisa bekerja, sekarang memliki rasa kepercayaan diri yang tinggi. Anda juga dapat dapat membantu mereka dengan memberikan sumbangan lewat kotak sumbangan yang kami sediakan di area lobi hotel.

 

Cultural Event: Saraswati & Pagerwesi Day

In October 2018, Saraswati day falls on the 13th. This day is devoted to Dewi Saraswati, the Goddess of knowledge & education. Books, manuscripts and the holly Weda are blessed and certain offerings are made for them. Just like other religious days in Bali, there are also ritual activities before and after the day of Saraswati. The day before the Saraswati is called Pengeradanaan, a day to prepare everything that's needed for the celebration. Books are cleaned and properly arranged and the offerings are also prepared.

On Saraswati day, the Balinese make offerings to their books. Students celebrate at school, usually in the morning. The day after Saraswati is called Banyu Pinaruh. "Banyu" means water and "Pinaruh" means wisdom.  The words mean that man must have wisdom, which always flows like water and is useful for mankind. Early in the morning of Banyu Pinaruh day, people will go to beaches, rivers and springs to purify themselves and pray for wisdom.

Four days after Saraswati day, Balinese will celebrate Pagerwesi day. Pagerwesi is derived from the words: Pager (fence) & wesi (iron) or The day of “iron fence”. Pagerwesi day is dedicated to honor Siva, the God manifestation as the guardian of the universe, which is meant to ask for protection and prosperity. After people received knowledge on Saraswati day, Pagerwesi day is the day to show respect to teachers and the main Guru (God or Siva). Another correlation between Saraswati and Pagerwesi is that the knowledge must be protected from bad influences and misuse.

 

Hari raya Saraswati jatuh pada tanggal 13 October 2018.  Hari raya ini di persembahkan untuk Dewi Saraswati, Dewi pengetahuan & pendidikan. Buku, alat belajar serta kitab suci Weda diberkati serta dibuatkan sesajen khusus. Sama seperti hari keagamaan lainnya di Bali, kegiatan ritual lainnya akan diadakan sebelum dan sesudah hari Saraswati. Sehari sebelum Saraswati disebut Pengeradanaan, pada hari ini orang-orang memepersiapkan segala sesuatu yang dibutuhkan untuk perayaan. Buku dan alat pembelajaran lainnya dibersihkan serta ditata dengan rapi.

Pada hari raya Saraswati, masyarakat Hindu Bali mempersembahkan sesajen kepada Dewi Saraswati. Biasanya para siswa merayakannya pada pagi hari disekolah. Sehari setelah Saraswati disebut Banyu Pinaruh. "Banyu" berarti air dan "Pinaruh" berarti kebijaksanaan. Makna dari Banyu Pinaruh bahwa manusia harus memiliki kebijaksanaan yang selalu mengalir seperti air, dan berguna bagi umat manusia. Pada hari Banyu Pinaruh orang akan pergi ke pantai, sungai dan mata air untuk “melukat” atau melakukan ruatan untuk membersihkan diri dan berdoa agar diberikan kebijaksanaan.

Empat hari setelah hari Saraswati, masyarakat hindu Bali akan merayakan Pagerwesi Hari. Pagerwesi berasal dari kata: Pager (pagar) & wesi (besi) .Hari raya Pagerwesi didedikasikan untuk menghormati Siva, manifestasi tuhan sebagai penjaga alam semesta, yang dimaksudkan untuk meminta perlindungan dan kesejahteraan. Setelah menerima pengetahuan pada hari Saraswati, hari Pagerwesi ditujukan untuk menunjukkan rasa hormat kepada guru dan Guru utama (Tuhan atau Siva). korelasi lain antara Saraswati dan Pagerwesi adalah bahwa pengetahuan harus dilindungi dari pengaruh buruk dan penyalahgunaan.

1. "Amazing Hotel" by sallystoter
I have spent 9 wonderful nights at the prime Plaza hotel in Sanur. The hotel is beautiful and the staff cannot do enough for you, first class treatment all the way. The breakfast was just amazing there was so much choice. We used the shuttle to the sister hotel as the children loved the pool area and games room there in the day time. But I would highly recommend this hotel and definitely stay again if I came back to Bali, as a great location close to all the other areas.
