NYEPI & MELASTI at DAJUMA Puri Dajuma, Beach Eco-Resort & Spa, West Bali Bali Culture Dajuma

Last saturday, took place the Balinese New Year 1940 in the Saka calendar, the famous holy day called Nyepi. Imagine the island totally quiet, the airport closed, and all Balinese families staying at home, praying and meditating for one full day.
Indispensable companion of Nyepi, a few days before, was the Melasti purification ceremony. Melasti was meant as the ritual to cleanse the world from all the filth of sin and bad karma, through the symbolic act of acquiring the Tirta Amerta, “the water of life”.
At Dajuma, as shown on the picture, Meslasti was celebrated with our guests according to the tradition on the edge of the beach with the aim to purify oneself of all the bad things in the past and throw it to the ocean. Selamat Hari Raya Nyepi!
