Besakih Mother Temple on the south slope of Mount Ugung. Pura Besakih is the holiest and largest Hindu temple in all of Bali. We made a pilgrimage on my last day on the island, organized by the shaman Sonya (fifth from the left). We were led by a Hindu priest whose presence was nothing short of overwhelming. He solemnized rituals for us on the different levels of the temple complex. He gave me his personal blessing for my healing work.
