Ida Sri Bagawan Ratnasanthana Sebali
Agni Hotra Ceremony
Ida Sri Bagawan Ratnasanthana Sebali and Ida Sri Bagawan Istri Ratnasantira Sebali are both Balinese priests from Bangli Regency in the heart of the island. They are a husband and wife team who were ordained in October 2012 to lead and present sacred teachings and officiate at ceremonies and rituals to groups and individuals by the late Ida Pedanda Gede Ketut Sebali Tianyar Arimbawa, President of the World Hindu Parisad and Chairman of the official Hindu religious oversight body Parisadha Hindu Dharma. Prior to their ordination, they worked as an entrepreneur and as an intensive care unit nurse practitioner.
They are the co-founders of the Bali Siddha Yoga Ashram located at the Griya Agung Sri Ratna Sebali-Denpasar. This organization has developed programs for young Balinese with the Pancer Langit Foundation and for the general public with the Prajna Tri Hita Karana Foundation on language, culture, art, dance, and character building with Dharma Guidance.
They have also broadened their horizons by receiving abhiseka and sadhana instruction and empowerment from noted teachers of the Tibetan Vajrayana Tradition from Nepal, Bhutan, and Malaysia. These have included Ven. Vajra Guru Yogi Tan, Ven. Khenpo Konchok Tashi Rinpoche, H.E. Simdha Getok Tulku Namdak Choying Rinpoche, Lama Sonam Dorje Rinpoche, H.H. Drikung Kyabgon Chetsang Rinpoche, HE Tulku Youngey Minggyur Rinpoche and H.E. Khenpo Kentshe Norbu Rinpoche.
They and their fellow ordained priests here at Bali Spirit Festival have conducted the sacred Full Moon Agnihotra (Fire Healing Ceremony) in many public and private places, including celebrations at temples throughout Bali. They dedicate their activities to serve the universal health, happiness, and wellbeing for all living beings.
