This study aims to examine awig-awig stimulation in developing character and
improving human resources in Traditional Village of Penglipuran. A case study was conducted
in the village. To answer research questions, interviews were conducted with village policy
makers who have a good understanding of awig-awig and villagers who understand awig-awig
and live under the awig-awig shade. This study uses purposive sampling. The data analysis was
carried out in four steps, namely data collection, data reduction, data presentation and
conclusion drawing/ verification. Validity tests of the research are credibility test, transferability
test, dependability test, and confirmability test. This research reveals that stimulation of awigawig of the Traditional Village of Penglipuran is (1) able to shape the character of the entire
community according to Hindu religious values; (2) able to foster the village tourism by
developing human resources based on local wisdom without being eroded by globalization, and
(3) binding customary rules to make the community of the Penglipuran village remain firm and
obedient to awig-awig in conjunction with the concept of Tri Hita Karana.
