Abstract


This article is intended to reveal the ecological aspect of Kuttara Kandha Dewa Purana Bangsul, a text in which it is described that Mount Batukaru is one of the holy areas in Bali Island. It is considered a place where the god of fertility resides; therefore, its ecosystem needs to be maintained. Such a signification is interesting and important to be investigated. The other reason is that, physically, the Mount Batukaru area is a water absorbing area as well as a nature reserve area. The problem of the study is how Mount Batukaru is pictured and signified in the text. The data were collected using the observation, reading, note taking, transliterating, and translating techniques. The theory of Semiotics proposed by Roland Barthes was employed. The result of the study shows that Mount Batukaru is considered the center of the energy of plants; therefore, it is recommended that plants be maintained and respected as the God’s physical form. It is expected that the result of the study may be used as one of the references to save the environment as one of the world’s current strategic issues.
