Indonesian Mythology

The Gods and Spirits of Indonesia


Balinese fabulous creature

Also known as Bedawang

The World Turtle

He carries the planet Earth on his back as he swims through space. Does this sound familiar?

He was brought into existence by the furious meditations of the World Snake Antaboga. As well as carrying the Earth on his back, he also ferries two giant serpents around. Are they steering or passengers? The world should be told. This affects us all.

What is Bedwang’s destination? Where are we all going? How long will it take to get there? And — most importantly of all in these troubled times — how much will the fare be when we all arrive?
