TEMPLE FESTIVAL AND FOOLMOON AT PURI DAJUMA

TEMPLE FESTIVAL AND FOOLMOON AT PURI DAJUMA

Located besides the SPA on West side and above the ocean,  Puri Dajuma’s main temple is a major place for its staff, mostly Hindous.
The temple houses a holy Mask brought from Java some years ago with great fanfare,  many ceremonies take place there.
Last Wednesday March 23rd was the day to celebrate in festive rituals, with a lot of people and a large orchestra.
After a ‘melasti’ or purification in front of the sea in the morning, the gods and deified ancestors have been invited for their blessings under the foolmoon.
A great atmosphere for the young dancers richly dressed showing their abilities as well as for the guests who had the opportunity to enter the deep and exciting culture of Bali.

If you look carefully at some trees along the small roads in Pekutatan area, you may be in

The creamy and smelly durian

terested by some local fruits, such as the durian.
The outside may look like the big sweety jackfruit, but the durian is like no other with its strong smell.
When matured it could be so disturbing for passengers that carrying durian in the public transportation may be forbidden.
But native from Indonesia and Malaysia, growing seasonally, quite nutritive and expensive, the durian fruit is a very popular food for most people from South East Asia.
If you usually enjoy strong smelling creamy cheese, just try some pieces of matured durian: a true vegetarian option!

 

NYEPI CELEBRATION

NYEPI CELEBRATION

Nyepi is probably the most extraordinary celebration in Bali. Can you imagine a full day of silence commemorated every Saka new year which fell on March 9th this year, where people all around the island stay at home with lights kept low, with no working, no entertainment, no traveling, and for some, no talking or eating at all! Even the airport is closed and the roads empty! Something definitively very special which makes foreigners sometimes quizzical. They should not because Nyepi is a very important tradition in Bali totally devoted to … self reflection.
On the eve of Nyepi day take place these unbelievable parades called Ogoh-ogoh where mythological beings, mostly demons, are shown on the streets.
Another good reason to come to Bali and discover the wealth of its culture!

ABSOLUTE FREEDOM

ABSOLUTE FREEDOM

Would you like to breath deeply, change your mind, have some exercise on a regular basis? Puri Dajuma allows all that with a choice of venues, or in  natural and quiet places.
Besides the every-day yoga session which usually takes place in the Baruna hall with an overhanging view of the ocean, our guest Karin on the picture, found her own atmosphere for meditation.
In the shade of the coconuts lining the beach, with the sound of the waves at her feet.
