Living in Ubud means having a golden opportunity to learn the ancient wisdom of Bali. The Balinese way of life, Tri Hita Karana.
Tri Hita Karana is three basic elements which bring happiness and peace. The three elements are parhyangan which means the relationship between human with the God, pawongan which is the relationship between human with fellow human, and the third is palemahan which means the relationship between human with the surroundings and nature. Those relationships must be equal integrally to achieve balanced and harmonious life.
