The Sophia Foundation is hosting a pilgrimage to Bali in the spring of 2018. The highest mountain on Bali, Mount Agung is believed by the Balinese to be a mystical mountain, which they think of as a replica of the mythical Mount Meru, the sacred mountain in Hindu and Buddhist cosmology, considered to be the central axis of the universe. The great Mount Agung rises to an altitude of 3,148 meters (10,308 feet) in eastern Bali. Perched on its slopes at an altitude of 924 meters (3,032 feet) is the holy Besakih Temple, the Mother Temple of Bali. According to the research of Robert Powell and David Bowden, presented in their book, Astrogeographia, it is here on this volcanic mountain that the Earth’s Venus chakra is located.

General Overview —

The central theme of our pilgrimage to Bali—continuing our journey from continent to continent visiting the earth’s planetary chakras—is to visit Mother Earth’s sacral (Venus) chakra located on Mt. Agung, Bali. Referred to by Robert Coon as “the World Purification Center,” he indicates that the sacred sites located on the island of Bali serve in the purification of the Earth’s blood. This is the function of the kidneys in the human being, to help in the purification of the blood, removing toxic materials from the body. The kidneys being the organ corresponding to Venus and the sacral chakra of the human being. The Venus qualities of love and beauty infuse the culture of Bali. As the Venus chakra works to bring balance to the human organism and soul, the Balinese live by three central principals focused upon the goal of bringing one’s being into balance: Keep balance between yourself and others, between yourself and nature, and between yourself and God.

All temples in Bali point towards Mount Agung, where the Mother Temple of Besakih is, with its uncountable steps, solemnly wait for the arrival of the gods and the goddesses, for when they step down from heaven, they come to Besakih by way of Mount Agung.
