These two volumes present erudite yet informal essays on the visible -- sekala -- and the occult -- niskala -- elements of Bali's cultural life. The essays cover a wide range of topics, from magic and trance healing to cockfighting and seaweed farming. The author, who has lived on Bali for 28 years, is widely recognized as a self-taught guru of Balinese folk traditions.
