For people familiar with Bali, there are numerous ceremonies, which are based on the 35 days Hindu calendar: 1 year, 5 years, 30 years and 100 years ceremony. All these rituals are written in the WEDA (Hindu Religious book). This year the 30 years ceremony or “Ngenteg Linggih” was performed at the village Temple. During this ceremony one brown Buffalo, one brown cow, one black lamb and one white duck are sacrificed and offered to the god. Pekutatan is composed of 6 Banjars or sub-villages where in total 1300 Hindu families live. Thereby Banjars have to establish a special schedule so that all their people can come to pray, dance and make offering. It was very colorful and entertaining. See you in 30 years…
