Balian: Medicine Man  

by on Monday, 26 September 2011No Comment | 452 views

Balian or outsider call it medicine man exist in Bali which people trust in God and also modern scientific healing. Many people who are still lack of knowledge about the function and the role of Balian in life consider Balinese putting Balian higher than God. That is all wrong.

Within a week, if modern healing can’t make their children/loved one get well, Balinese will consider about the possibility of bad person has sent ‘disease’ to their children/loved one. Yes, though Balinese believe in God this kind of illogical thing actually exist. Often they visit Balian to assure whether or not their loved one is suffered from a ‘disease’ sent by other people and ask Balian to cure him.

In the meantime, some Balian are also the bridge. Balinese people believe that spirits still want to say something to their family on the earth. A couple of days after ngaben ceremony, all family and relatives will hear what spirit says trough Balian body. In short, Balian is the mediator so that the spirits can communicate for the last time with family.

Since ‘Eat, Pray, and Love’ book becomes a best seller book, Ketut Liyer, a traditional medicine man from Ubud attracts many attentions that people from around the world crave to see him and see his prediction or comment about their life. Some people are satisfied on what he says. Not to mention there are also some people who aren’t and think he just say the same things to everybody.

Consider Balian’s comment about you as a funny or serious thing is up to you. For that reason, accept it if Balian says a good thing but just make it for fun if you think Balian’s comment is not all true.

At the end of the session, the patient may pay the Balian with anything. There is no strict price which has been set. How much the money you will give is based on your will. Even Balinese who doesn’t have money leave only rice or any kind of fruits from their farm to express gratitude.
