Nyepi Day – A Complete Peaceful And Silence Day Of The Year

Nyepi known as a Balinese "Day of Silence", this year falls on 7th of March 2019. It is a Hindu celebration in Bali to welcome the New Year of Saka according to Balinese calendar. Starts from 6 a.m. until 6 a.m. the next day where the day is dedicated for self-reflection through 4 rituals or called as Catur Brata Penyepian: 

·        Amati Geni: No fire or light, including no electricity 

·        Amati Karya: No working 

·        Amati Lelunganan: No travelling 

·        Amati Lelanguan: Fasting and no revelry/self-entertainment 

Although it is particularly celebrated by Balinese Hindu, but the other non-Hindu who stays in Bali has understood this special day and honors it every year. Usually bustling streets and roads will be empty, there is little or no noise from TVs and radios, and few signs of activity are seen even inside homes. The only people to be seen outdoors are Pecalang, traditional security men who patrol the streets to ensure everyone is following the prohibitions. 

Tourists are not exempt from the restrictions. Even though they are free to do any activities as they wish inside the hotel, no one is allowed to go to the beaches or streets.The airportwill be closed for the entire day. And the only exceptions granted are for emergency vehicles responding to life-threatening conditions and women about to give birth. 

The whole celebration actually started from three or four days earlier where Hindus people done the Melasti ceremony as the ritual to cleanse the world from sin and bad karma. Held on the edge of the beach, Hindu belief the source of water such as lake and sea are considered as the source of life. During the ceremony, all of sacred objects which belongs to a temple, such as pralingga or pratima of Ida Sang Hyang Widi Wasa, and all of sacred equipments, are being cleaned and purified. 

Continued with Butha Yadnya ritual to vanquish the negative elements and create a balance between God, mankind, and nature. Hindu Balinese will do ogoh-ogoh parade, demonic statues usually created by every village in Bali made of painted bamboo and styrofoam symbolizing negative elements or evil spirits. After the ogoh-ogoh have been paraded around the village, the people will then burn them to symbolized the end of the ceremony and readiness to undergo Nyepi Day the next day.
