With World Water Day taking place on 22 March, this is a good opportunity to explore what this purifying element means to Bali. Water, collected from mountaintops, holy springs, seas, lakes and rivers keeps Bali’s religious affairs flowing. It is sought after by priests and pilgrims, it is continuously blessed down its journey through fields — even our souls are said to be droplets of water.

With that knowledge, it is clear water has an important part to play on the island, but it is still under threat. Luckily there are those trying to ensure this cleansing element stays pure and stays available for years to come.

In this digital issue of NOW! Bali, you’ll also find an important discussion from our Publisher, Alistair Speirs, who shares his concerns surrounding Kuta, wondering whether this iconic tourist area will be able to pop back when visitors return. Contributor Jean Couteau shares the story of a special photographer, a Brahmin capturing his own culture. All this and more!
