Brahma is the dimension of Sang Hyang Widhi as the creator (utpatti), Wisnu is the manifestation of Sang Hyang Widhi as the caretaker (sthiti), and Siwa is the manifestation of Sang Hyang Widhi as the destroyer (pralaya). Thats why the Balinese believe that all the creation of Sang Hyang Widhi will face the cycle of birth, life, and death. The essence of power of Sang Hyang Widhi is expressed by every family of Hindu in Bali in the place of worship in every house and village
