Sagara-giri (waterscape of Bali), as a cosmological and ecological concepts, has a strong foundation in tutur texts, and hence it has spiritual or sometimes mythological nuances. Literary, philosophical, and religious traditions are somehow based on them. This concept views mountain (high place) and sea/water (low place) as the two poles playing fundamental role in water preservation and circulation in the island of Bali. Human beings interact in between these two poles making use of water in various forms/modes of life. Not only both are considered holy places for purification of body-mind, but as sources of prosperity, welfare, and peace. The cosmological view of this tradition looks at the parallelism between macrocosmic and macrocosmic world of existence; deriving from the same primordial source, viz. Prakrti/Pradhana. Human beings play a role wisely in between these worlds for securing happiness. The concept of sagara-giri has foundation on the evolution and involution of tattvas as mentioned in tutur texts, despite of the fact sagara-giri in this discussion is mainly directed to external world. Mountain and sea spiritually are considered the symbols of linga and yoni, a distinguished mark of Saivism. Owing to this fact both mountain/forest and sea/water should be properly maintained for securing its purity and safety from any harms or destruction. Any harm happen in any of these will affect the entire life.
