The Photos of Roslan Rahman: Bhakti in Bali

Roslan Rahman made these photographs on the island of Bali: Hinduism is practiced by a small minority in Indonesia, while the largest Indonesian Hindu community is located in Bali (more than 90% of the population there).

Now, what is Bhakti? The short answer would be that Bhakti is a form of collective devotion, but it means slightly different things for different branches of Hinduism. Anyway, any attempt to translate this word from Devanāgarī looses some of its meaning.
