Hindus should learn from Christians

Christmas was observed in Bali peacefully without any significant security disturbances.

Churches across the resort island were fully packed with devotees commemorating the birth of Jesus Christ. Speaking before the annual gathering of Balinese Hinduism’s most progressive clan-based organization on Sunday morning, Bali Governor Made Mangku Pastika urged Balinese Hindus to learn compassion from their Christian brethren. The Christians have focused their ‘religious’ actions into helping the poor, improving education and providing healthcare to the disadvantaged as on the other hand, Balinese Hindus spent most of their energy on the ritualistic elements of their religion, ranging from renovating temples to organizing expensive, elaborate rituals.
