About the gods / by tina gonsalves

The God are nice people who live in the sky and make people have good luck or bad luck.

Most of the people are Hindu in bali.  There is twenty percent of people who are not Hindu, and they are Muslim.

Most religion have only one God, but Hindus ' have representations of thousands of Gods.

They have big big temples for the Gods and lots of ceremonies to celebrate for the Gods. In bali, most homes have a small temple.

Even in this house there is a little temple for the Gods and everyday they serve candy and flowers to there God. They also the gods there left over food to keep them happy.

Karma is a big part of the Hinduism.

it means if you do something bad, something bad is going to happen to you or if your good,  something really good is going to happen to you. 

I think it's a great way to live life because if you did something good you will get rewarded for helping someone but if you be bad that's fair because you picked on someone, something bad will then happen to you.  

The hindus believe in reincarnation - meaning that when you die you come back to life as a baby. If you have been good in your last life you will come back and have a better life.

If I could make my own god, it would look like this. 

this is my avatar. Its called Ogar Snake. he can shoot thunder if he is angry. He gives wishes if you are good. And he is mostly happy. He has four hands and one rattle snake tail. When he gives wishes, he rattles his rattlesnake tail and BAM! the people got shot by thunder get bad luck. The top arms are  good luck charms for making good wishes - it makes everyone feel really good and they will never get attacked by anything - all your wishes will come true. But if you are bad, your wish will turn to its opposite. The ears hear very well - they can even hear dirt, or a falling tree from the other side of the world. The eyes hypnotise you - because they make circles, and they make the people feel better about yourself.
