216 Kris Daggers with Magic Power Delivered to Selat Villagers

216 Kris Daggers with Magic Power Delivered to Selat VillagersKris dagger is indeed very familiar with the people of Bali. In the past, it was used as a weapon to defend one’s self and served as a symbol of social status. Now, it is more widely used in cultural and religious-related activities. Related to this matter, the Regent of Karangasem, I Wayan Geredeg, delivered 216 pieces of kris dagger to native residents of Selat customary village, Karangasem, Wednesday (Sep 26).

The weapons having magic power were handed over as complement to devotional activities in various religious and traditional ceremonies held in the Puseh and Desa temple of local village. Prior to submission of the kris dagger, the Regent Geredeg accompanied by the echelons said prayers together.

Regent Geredeg said the assistance of kris dagger posed an effort to preserve the culture of Bali where the ritual life of Balinese community was closely related to the presence of the weapon. Kris symbolized the purusha (male aspect) and sharpness of vision in implementing the religious and national tasks. Besides, kris was also a form of symbolic implementation of the mandate of cultural heritage containing the mission of the sustainable archipelagic cultural history.

Magic power of the kris, explained the Regent Geredeg, had been proved to show off the identity of sanctity and magical nuance. Such a power would increase the public confidence in the culture and civilization in combination with the implementation of the Hindu religious ceremonies. It was preserved and the sacred values were fostered through persistent and sincere ritual process.

Meanwhile, Chief of Selat customary village, I Wayan Gede Mustika, said the implementation of ritualistic ceremonies at Selat customary village was also supported by the use of kris as a symbol of superior knight. For that purpose, the assistance of kris from the Regent of Karangasem was appropriate, especially given to the native residents amounting to 84 families out of the total coming to some 2,000 families.

Series of the ritual implementation at Selat customary village, he explained, was relatively busy throughout the year reaching about 27 times. Some of them were the Usabha Dodol and Usabha Goreng other than having the obligation to pay devotional services to Besakih Temple. It also related to the venerated deities in the Puseh Sukeluwih Temple of Selat. Prior to using it, said Mustika, the kris was ritually animated, so the strength and magic values of the kris dagger would be getting stronger. (BTN/015)
