Tri Hita Karana Award
Gold again for Bali Dynasty Resort
The Bali Dynasty Resort is delighted to announce that it had the honor to receive a Gold Medal for the second time in a row, a high distinction in Bali's prestigious Tri Hita Karana Awards. This accreditation certificate was presented on 26 November 2011 at the Bali Theatre at the Bali Safari Marine Park.
Tri Hita Karana (THK) denotes an indigenous life concept of the Balinese community to attain secular and spiritual bliss through a harmonious relationship between humans and God (parhyangan), humans and fellow humans (pawongan) as well as humans and the environment (palemahan) into integral oneness.
This presentation of awards has been held annually since 2000 to acknowledge the efforts of local hotels, resorts and villas that choose to adhere to the spiritual and social principles of this unique Balinese Hindu concept.
This award is indeed a great privilege for Bali Dynasty Resort.
Bamboo for Pengalusan
Another progressive program from the East Bali Poverty Project is the Bamboo Field School with the goal of reforestating Mount Agung with bamboo providing greater sustainability for the community in the future.
The Bali Dynasty Resort Charity Effort (to which many of you have contributed to) recently committed to the launch of this initiative by purchasing 400 bamboo seedlings, enough to plant 1 entire hectare in the Pengalusan Hamlet where we already support the education project since early 2000. Bamboo is one of the best and most reliable construction materials in the world. It grows fast enough that one can harvest and replant bamboo without depleting its supply, and the strength of the material can rival that of low grade steel.
The Bali Dynasty Resort, through the Bali Dynasty Charity effort established in 2000 has supported the integrated education projects of the East Bali Poverty Project initially supporting two schools and now fully supporting Pengalusan. The program concentrates on educating over 60 children in the basics of reading and writing, mathematics, health, hygiene and organic farming with the objective that they become self sufficient in the long term.
