November

Galungan

November 1, 2017

The most important celebration for Balinese Hindus across the country is Galungan, which is viewed as the victory of Dharma (good) over Adharma (vice). This is a very colorful time of year to vacation in Bali as official preparations for Galungan start three days before D-day and festivities continue for 10 days, until Kuningan day. During the festivities, Balinese believe that all their ancestral spirits return to the living world to visit. This requires the living to honor them with prayer and offerings.

The island is awash in bright colors, traditionally clad Balinese rush between their homes and temples, elaborate offerings are carried atop heads, prayers and rituals take place, the scent of incense fills the air and streets are lined with Penjor – elaborate towering bamboo poles decorated with ears of rice, palm leaf decorations, fruits and colored paper.

Contact our Concierge to find out more about seeing these celebrations, perhaps by visiting a local family and or a temple, and experience Bali’s living culture.

Kuningan

November 11, 2017

Kuningan falls ten days after the Galungan also marks the end of the 210-day Balinese Calendar.

Kuningan, literally means 'the day of yellow' is a day of celebration when Balinese Hindu venerate and decorate their family and village temples, bidding farewell to their ancestral spirits who believed to have revisited the earthly planet during the ten day period between the two important festival days.

This is a special time to visit our island and see Balinese families dressed in their ceremonial best as they travel to and from the island's temples. Women in long colourful processions bring towering pyramid-style pajegan plates of decorative foods and vegetables. Locals in bright sarongs and silk sabuk bear witness to their newly acquired state of grace via a wijen blessing of rice kernels stuck to their foreheads. The men of the village play loud Balinese ensemble as they stroll the streets exercising their sacred Barong - a dragon-like mystical beast brought to life by the young men dancing inside; one who wears the Barong's headpiece and his collaborator, resigned to his back-up role in the beast's derriere.

Witness this cultural celebration and let our Concierge assist with the arrangement.
