"Indians carried Hinduism and Buddhism to Indonesia... There they found an indigenous body of beliefs and practices which substantially stemmed from animism. It was around the first century A.D. that Hinduism and Buddhism began to become known to Indonesia... These two religions mingled with the original animism... the resulting religious pattern was a combination of Hinduism, Buddhism, and animism plus some other customary beliefs and practices. This fusion... endured until Islam became the dominant religion of Indonesia around the beginning of the sixteenth century. "

Reprint; originally pub. as Abingdon Dictionary of Living Religions, 1981; pg. 323. "Although Balinese religion shares some of the history of Javanese religion, it is sharply differentiated by a lack of Islamic elements. On Bali a distinctive Indonesian type of Hinduism has developed. Balinese call their religion agama Hindu-Bali, meaning Hindu-Balinese religion; they also call it agama tirtha, meaning 'religion of the water,' thus indicating the central importance of consecrated water prepared by Brahmin priests (pedanda) for all major rituals. "
Balinese Hinduism Indonesia: Bali - 95.00% - - 1993 Hintz, Martin. Indonesia (series: Enchantment of the World). Chicago: Childrens Press (1993); pg. 30-31. "Hinduism was introduced into Java by travelers from India in ancient times... When the early Javanese princes accepted Hinduism, they did not give up all of their early animistic beliefs--they simply combined the new ideas with them... Several centuries ago a great many Hindus left Java for Bali rather than convert to Islam. Hinduism has survived in Bali eer since, and today 95% of the Balinese are Hindus... Balinese Hinduism has strong elements of Buddhism, animism, and ancestor worship, and it permeates all aspects of everyday life... Over the centuries a religion unique to Bali has evolved, but it has deep roots in Hindu traditions. "

In addition, there are perhaps half as many people again who, though essentially Baluchi in culture, have adopted the language of their neighbors.
