In­cense

hellobali Guide to Bali - - A-Z OF BALINESE TRADITIONAL CULTURE -

THE SMELL of in­cense or dupa, is an im­por­tant fea­ture of the full sen­sory ex­pe­ri­ence of Bali. But although it may have a sec­ondary ben­e­fit of fo­cussing the mind while dis­guis­ing some of the less savoury smells of the trop­ics, its pri­mary func­tion oc­curs in com­bi­na­tion with prayers and of­fer­ings, the as­cend­ing streams of fra­grant smoke help­ing to re­lay their sen­ti­ments to heaven.
