Active ImageThe balinese in tanah lot, especially those who follow the Hindu religion, are a unique people. There uniqueness is event more apparent when it is adapted to the lifestyle of the third millennium. As a krama, or as a member of a village attending a traditional meeting in the village, a Balinese in tanah lot can appear ‘nyaput’, wearing their traditional costume, even is just previously, they may have been in a meeting business partner, wearing neck-ties and suit in an exlusive hotel. It is also normal for a supple, beautiful Balinese girl in tanah lot, who dances at the banjar or at the temple, or even in a hotel could have been panting the wall of the building, or selling marchandise at the market in sweatpants, that same afternoon.

From examples like these, it may seem as if the people of Tanah Lot live with two diferent personalities. But, in reality, they look at this as a way a carrying out there daily life, or as an effort in cultivating their karma. Tingkah manut swadarma, or conduct according to one’s position, is a teaching that is held strongly by most Balinese in tanah lot in carrying out there karma. Because of this, it is very possible that a girl who works as a shopkeeper, whose existence is nothing significant amongst the crowd in te market, may be the centre of attention as a dancer of the Rejang at the time of worship in a ritual held at the temple.
