During the lesson Pak. Ida Bagus Suardika discussed Tri Hita Karana. For Hindu people in Bali Tri Hita Karana is a basic concept of life. It consists of Parhyangan (good relationships between humans and our Gods), Pawongan (good relationships between people) and Palemahan (good relationships between humans and environment). We believe that if we have a good relationship with our Gods, other humans and our environment, we will live prosperously.
Pak. Ida Bagus Suardika started the lesson by introducing BfB’s Environmental Program to the students and giving them an overview of the lessons to come. He was very confident in giving the lesson so the class ran very well. The students were very active in answering the teacher’s question and presenting their opinions and points of view
After the students watched the movie they separated into 6 groups. In groups the students discussed the questions in their BfB workbook and then a representative from each group presented their opinions in front of the class. They did the presentations very well. The students didn’t just answer the question, but also gave real-life examples based on their own experiences. The presentation session also brought a lot of laughs, because the presenters gave funny examples based on their life, using play on words such as “meli Klepon di pasih”, meaning “bought Klepon (Balinese traditional food) on the beach” with very witty expression. Overall the presentation went very well and they all understood the key points of the activity.
