One God

I've noticed there's a sort of rote line locals use when describing Hinduism here in Bali. They'll throw in that there's only one god. Seems to me to be a diplomatic thing to say considering the predominance of monotheists in Indonesia. Their Hinduism here is pretty full of spirits good and bad. Must be pre Hindu local shamanic stuff mixed in. I call it voodoo Hindu. There's some Buddhism in it too. - dc
