Ngelawang

.

Balinese Hindus have just celebrated Galungan on December 26th and the 10 days celebration will be ended by Kuningan day on January 5th 2019.

 

Resident of Bali must be familiar with “Ngelawang” tradition. Ngelawang can be done from morning, afternoon, even at night during the celebration of Galungan and Kuningan. Ngelawang is  an art performed in a “Barong Bangkung” costume, where the Barong is paraded around the village accompanied by gamelan. This performance are usually carried out by children in villages and they will do the performance from door to door  and in return audience or the house owners will donate some money

 

Ngelawang is done to celebrate the Dharma ( good ) victory over Adharma ( evil ). It is said that the performance of ngelawang is believed to bring blessings, salvation, inner peace and peace to Hindus.

 

Barong used in this performance is Barong Ket, which is usually performed at temples and holy places in Bali. Barong Ket is widely known as it is used for entertainment purposes. The word “bangkung” in Barong Bangkung means gilt  because the barong is shaped like a pig's body with black skin.

 

Ngelawang will usually involve a group of people, especially children to adults, consisting of 8 to 15 people. Of them there will be two people who dance while wearing a set of barong clothes.

 

Origins of the Ngelawang Tradition Bali

 

According to Hindu beliefs, Barong is a symbol of the embodiment of the Banas Pati Raja which can protect humans from danger and disease outbreaks. Not all places or villages have the tradition of Ngelawang and performing Barong Bangkung, only in some places that have the ancestral cultural heritage, so also the procedures for its implementation are sometimes also different but in essence have the same purpose.

In the past, this ritual was very sacred so that when the barong bulu fell down, the people would pick it up and make it a lucky thing. Nowadays, Ngelawang tradition is just an art show performed by children.

If you are heading to Bali in the next few days, read on to find out how to experience Nyepi, and what to expect during the day of silence.

 

Silent Day, it is observed with 24 hours of inactivity as the entire island comes to a complete standstill. In accordance to the Hindu faith, Nyepi is Balinese New Year and for followers it is a time of solitude and personal reflection. Nyepi is a day to make and keep the balance of nature. From the religious and philosophy point of view, Nyepi is meant to be a day of self introspection to decide on values, e.g humanity, love, patience, kindness, that should be kept forever. Balinese Hindus have much kind of celebrations but Nyepi is the most important of the island’s religious days and the prohibitions are taken seriously, particularly in the villages.

 

The Balinese new year is celebrated over six days. On the third day, there is Nyepi, the day of silence. Nyepi is a national holiday in Indonesia, and Hindu areas perform the same rituals.

One fun part of the Balinese new year is the Ogoh-Ogoh parades on ‘Nyepi Eve,’ for the Bhuta Yajna ritual. Large, scary-looking statues are carried through the streets with lots of music and noise. They are brought to the beach in a torch-lit procession while people bang pots and beep horns to make as much noise as they can, to scare away evil. This is called mebuu-buu. The statues are of demons, representing negative elements. 

 

The Balinese Hindus do not celebrate the coming of the new year of Saka Calendar with lavish party; They celebrate it with meditation instead. No activities are allowed to take place. These mandatory religious prohibitions include no pleasure/entertainment ( amati lelanguan ), no traveling ( amati lelungaan ), no fire ( amati geni ) and no working /activity ( amati karya ) and Day of Silence to mark the New Year according to Balinese calendar which the grand ceremonies will be held throughout the island on the 6th, before the whole activities stop for 24 hours and the island goes completely silent making it look uninhabited on the 7th .

 

Hotels are exempt from Nyepi's rigorous practices but streets outside will be closed to both pedestrians, vehicles and Airport (except for emergency vehicles) and village wardens (Pecalang) will be posted to keep people are not on the street. So wherever you happen to be staying on March 7th in Bali, this will be a good day to spend indoors. Indeed Nyepi day has made Bali a unique island than others.

 

The silence begins sunrise around 6:00 am of 7th  March 2019 and will go on until the next 24 hours.

  • All shops are closed on Nyepi Day.
  • Guests has to stay inside the resort area
  • When listening to the music or watching TV in the room, keep the sound at minimum level.
  • There will be no traffic on that day in the whole Bali island.
  • Ngurah Rai airport will be totally closed on 7th of March 2019, so there will be neither arrival nor departure in the airport on that day. All connecting airports around the globe have been informed in advance about this.

 

Across Bali, the activities are allowed only in emergency rooms and maternity section of hospitals and the arrival section of airport. Any emergencies are taken into consideration and tolerated. The whole island is in silence.
 

Shall you require any further information, aand arrangement during your stay on Nyepi Day, please do not hesitate to contact email us at online@rumahluwih.com           

We are looking forward to welcoming you at Rumah Luwih Beach Resort, your home away from home

NYEPI DAY ( SILENT DAY )

Serenity Nyepi at Rumah Luwih

Nyepi comes from the word quiet (silent, silent). Nyepi Day is a Hindu New Year ritual which date is based on caka calendar, which began in the year 78 AD.

In contrary with  A.D new year, Saka New Year is began with solitude. No regular activities and the Hindu are refrain from:

  • Lighting fire
  • Work
  • Entertainment / entertaining others / fun activities
  • Travelling

 

The Bali island will be shut down, airport and harbour will be closed. Public services are not available except for hospital (for emergency cases).

 

The ultimate purpose of Nyepi Day is to plead before God Almighty, to sanctify Bhuana Alit (human nature/microcosmos) and the Great Bhuana/macrocosmos (universe). Before Nyepi day, there are series of ceremonies conducted by Hindus, especially in the area of Bali.

 

About 2 or 3 days prior to Nyepi, Hindus will perform purgatory by performing a Melasti ceremony. On that day, all the means of worship in the temple (shrine) are paraded to the beach or lake, which is reffered as the source of holy water that can purify all the dirt in human and nature.


The day before Nyepi, in the "tilem sasih kesanga" (the 9th dead month), the Hindus performed the ”Buta Yadnya" at all levels of society, ranging from each family, banjar, village, subdistrict, and so on and  taking one of “Caru” (a sort of offerings) according to one’s affordability. The Blessed Yadnya were each named Pañca Sata (small), Pañca Sanak (medium), and Tawur Agung (large).

Caru that is held in each house consist of five (5) colors of noodles/packs with its side dishes, such as brass (colorful) chicken accompanied by the wine/wine.

 

Pengerupukan day is then performed usually in the evening before the Nyepi morning started. The family spreading the rice, torching the home and whole yard, and hit any objects (usually kentongan) to make sound or noise. This is done to repel the Butha Kala from home environment.

Pengerupukan is usually enlivened with ogoh-ogoh parade which is the embodiment of Butha Kala who are paraded around the environment, and then burned. This ceremony is also to drive away Butha Kala from the surrounding environment.

Hopefully there will be more and more volunteers involved both from hotels around Pantai Lebih and individuals living around the beach . Everyone should be concerned with the cleanliness, sustainability, and beauty of beaches in Bali.

 

 

Trash Hero has a wonderful mission to share with others:

 

Action and Awareness

To act directly, then and there. Pick up trashes and clean up. Start with our neighbourhood to beaches we visit to places we know need to clean. Just act and don’t wait is the key.

imagine if there are 100 people in different places doing the same thing and each invites 10 more people, then there will be at least 1000 volunteers involved. With more people we can reach more places to clean and there will be more beautiful clean places we can enjoy.

 

Education

Volunteers also get support in the form of training on garbage and its impact globally and long term. What and how will it impact the living being, for us and for our children and grandchildren in the future.

 

Sustainable Projects

The Trash Hero also creates long-term projects where communities can directly involve. How to remove and better manage our waste, what strategies to implement that will help reducing the amount of waste being produced in the future.

 

Inspiration

The Hero Trash motivates people to inspire others in everyday lives, to lead by example.
