Never Have a Promenade on Kajeng Kliwon

Never Have a Promenade on Kajeng KliwonBe careful when traveling on kajeng kliwon (encounter of three-day and five-day week in Balinese calendar) particularly at nightfall and midnight. The kajeng kliwon falling every 15 days is believed by Balinese people to be sacred and filled with negative aura. Leak (black magic practitioners) commonly choose this day to study or practice their capability. The leak practitioners worship and meditate at graveyard. They worship Goddess Durga to invoke a miracle. On that account, people will not recklessly go out to have a promenade on the kajeng kliwon. The priest of Dalem Sekebon Temple at Sibang Kaja village, I Nyoman Miarta Putra, said that on that day people were usually reluctant to visit other people’s home, let alone visit the sick. At the time, the kajeng kliwon was believed to belong to auspicious day for bhuta kala (evil spirits) to do their activities.

For humans that were mentally and spiritually weak, their physic and non-physical aspect were very vulnerable to be possessed or hurt by this leak. On the kajeng kliwon, the bhuta kala, supernatural beings and other spirits rise to disrupt humans. “Kajeng kliwon is a very good moment to perform purificatory rite or melukat for sick people, especially those who are exposed to magic phenomenon,” he said.

All the spirits, he explained, were followers of Goddess Durga. On that account, kajeng kliwon has the meaning to remind Hindu people to always get closer to God. “In essence, do not do anything that might offend other people,” he said. To be freed from the target of bhuta kala (negative energy in nature), he explained, the Hindus usually delivered segehan oblation in five colors, a bhuta yajna (sacrifice to the bhutas) at the smallest level. It was implemented by the presentation of offerings in the form of ketipat dampulan rice bag on the shrine and segehan oblation on the ground,” he explained.


These oblations, explained Mangku Miarta, symbolized the human soul that was always faced with various obstacles in life in the form of good and bad as well as sad and happy mood. By that way, people’s spirit would become maturer and had divine qualities (good qualities). The tipat dampulan was presented to the gods (upper level of universe). Meanwhile, the five-colored segehan oblation, the white was presented in the east, red in the south, yellow in the west, black in the north and mixture of the four colors in the center.

The segehan oblation was usually presented under the shrine, courtyard of family temple, kemulan or shrine of the origin, home courtyard and in front of the house compound. It was presented to bhuta kala and the invisible supernatural beings. (BTN/putri/015)
