This research discusses the menyama-braya tradition to construct ethnoreligious between Balinese Hindus and two Muslim ethnicities who inhabit Bali (Sasak Muslim ethnicity and Bugis Muslim ethnicity) in an effort of peace education. When ethnic and religious differences become an arena for division, menyama-braya offers a peaceful solution that brings the two together. In this context, this article discusses the practice of menyama-braya in religious rituals and educational institutions. In religious rituals, menyama-braya is present in ngaben (the cremation tradition) and religious day ceremonies of each religion). Whereas in educational institutions, the Puja Trisanda prayer and salam, Hindu involvement in MTQ; ngejot and ngotonin program, and the Rodat dance extracurricular. This finding shows how menyama-braya forms a unique identity that we call an ethnoreligious hybrid. This study extrapolates important patterns of peacebuilding in Asia, bearing in mind that Bali, as the world’s peacemaker, offers peace education that mobilises cultural diversity from different ethnicities and religions in one hybrid tradition.
