HUMAN POSTCARDS

Take 60 seconds to witness a new born baby's first moments of life.

In 2015 we visited Bumi Sehat, a health clinic in Bali that offers free prenatal care and birthing services to anyone that needs it. We were privileged to witness the moment that a young Balinese mother gave birth to her first child, a healthy baby boy.

In the film, Komang describes how it feels to become a mother, and you can see the father singing the Gayatri mantra* into the ear of the child to welcome him into the world.

“May we bow to the excellent glory of God the divine rising Sun, as manifest in your Soul. May our prayers protect us from harming one another, on our journey home to the illuminated light.”

*The Gayatri mantra is one of the oldest and most powerful of Sanskrit mantras.
