Abstract: "Tenganan Pegringsingan village is located in the eastern part of Bali Province area. Tenganan Pegringsinganpeople might not be categorized as environment 'lovers', but they have strong attachement and faithful to their traditions and ancestors. No one from this community could break the traditional law called awig-awig that had been established by their ancestors from hundreds of years ago. The objective of this research is to analyze the heritage effect of Tenganan Pengringsingan on the sustainability of common resources. The emphasize of the study is on the ancient institutions that manage common forest and land in traditional village in Bali. The result of the study shows that Tenganan Pegringsingan's heritage play a critical role in maintaining traditional values which contribute to the sustainability of their forest. Conservation measures are not only exerted in their own territory, but also in the other side of their village. Even though, they do not understand the purpose of every ceremony that they are practicing, they realize that everything has an ultimate goal for sustainability. They believe that life will sustain if all elements which exist in nature, especially air, heat, and water are in a balanced position."
