Abstract

ABSTRACT
There are 3 (three) economic issues regarding Production, distribution and consumption,
and to overcome them must also be from that problem, namely how to produce more and
better and diverse, and then from the production how to distribute it evenly and thoroughly to
consumers or society and further is how to consume to be more useful and beneficial to
society. A good and right consumption if consumers can use it effectively means that it is
right on target and is fully beneficial and this can improve economic growth and people's
welfare will be better, but if used consumptive or even excessive consumerism will be able to
reduce economic growth. The basic framework of the teachings of Hinduism, especially in
Bali is divided into 3 (three) parts, namely Tattwa (philosophy), Susila (ethics) and
Ceremony (yadnya) all are integrated and related to one another. Tattwa means "that" whose
deeper meaning is "truth and belief" about God, Susila which means the basis of moral or
good behavior or actions, the third is the Hindu concept of ceremony which can be
interpreted by all movements around human life or activities in connecting with God, in a
ceremony requires a facility called upakara which in Bali is often called Banten which one
form is Gebogan or Pajengan whose contents consist of various products of the earth and is
presented sincerely before God. In the present era, the form and content of gebogan has
shifted which was originally filled from agricultural produce and arranged according to
ability, has now shifted to an even excessive lifestyle called consumerism and consumerism.
Life, with the hope of the results of this study would certainly be known to be the cause and
how to overcome them.
