Tri Hita Karana, which means ‘Three Ways to Happiness’ is an ancient philosophy for life on the island of Bali, Indonesia, and has been teaching generation after generation of Balinese how to maintain spiritual harmony between God, Nature and Human. This traditional belief emphasizes the harmonies of people with spiritual, people with nature, and people with people in the pursuit of Happiness. The principle of Tri Hita Karana guides many aspects of Balinese life.
The three causes referred to in the principle are:
1. Harmony with God
2. Harmony with nature or environment
3. Harmony with people
It is derived from the Balinese spiritualism and beliefs, which promotes harmony towards God, manifested in numerous rituals and offerings to appease deities; harmony with their environment, which strife to conserve the nature and promote the sustainability and balance of the environment; and harmony among fellow human beings through communal cooperation and promoting compassion. Tri Hita Karana is credited for the island's prosperity as a whole, its relatively stable record of development, environmental practices, and the overall quality of life for its residents.
