I wanted this Bymne Heritage VOL.II to be very special because it has to be made during Galungan Holy Days and be launched on Kuningan...and also it's my birthday week. So I did a research about Galungan and Kuningan.

 

Balinese celebrates the victory of Dharma over Adharma during this 10-day-celebration. It is believed that our ancestors are visiting us during these holy days to help us defeating the bad and evil force. This event is often linked to the mythology of Barong and Rangda. Barong symbolizes the good force and Rangda symbolizes the curse or the evil one, although in Bali both of these forces are considered holy. Barong and Rangda symbolize the balance between constructive force and destructive force (Rwa Bhineda), same concept as Yin and Yang.

I'm so inspired by this mythology. I was, myself, experiencing a huge shift during this powerful energetic timeline in Bali. I was going through a lot of personal-growth transformation started on November 10th (Galungan Day). I knew that this would be very transformational for me since it's Scorpio season alongside with my birthday week and I'm entering a new life cycle on this birthday. It felt like my ancestors were here helping me defeating my old beliefs that were holding me back from my purpose.

Love & Light,

Maria Nersi
