Center for Meditation Awaited by Huge Animal

Center for Meditation Awaited by Huge AnimalAre you a spiritual person? Keraban Langit Temple is one of the good spiritual destinations. Balinese people and many travelers from outside Bali and overseas perform spiritual activities here. A lot of tourists from India, the United States and England meditate in this temple. Even, they have been very familiar with this temple.  

The temple is located at Sading village, Mengwi, Badung County, or about 13 km north of Denpasar. It perches on tranquil location on the edge of the river bank and belongs to Dang Khayangan temple or the one established to venerate ancient sage. Within the temple lies a spring believed to bring in blessing by local community.

On the temple anniversary or pujawali falling on Buda Cemeng Ukir or 56 days before Galungan, the surrounding communities continue to do spiritual purification in this temple. On particular days, many tourists come to worship and meditate with different purposes. The deities venerated in this temple are Lord Vishnu, Ratu Gede Lingsir, Ratu Ayu and Ratu Made.

The Keraban Langit Temple lies within a tranquil cave. Upon entering the temple area, the atmosphere will be cool, fresh and peaceful. It happens because there is ventilation at the top of the cave so that fresh air and sunlight can get in, that is why it is called kereban. “Since it is roofed with the sky, it is also called kereba langit,” said Jero Mangku Sweden, 73.

According to Jero Mangku Sweden, the temple was estimated to have existed before the era of Sri Udayana ruled in Bali. As a place of meditation, there were some restrictions to be followed. For example, the people with dirty clothes and in cuntaka (temporarily and spiritually impure) condition were not allowed to get into the temple. “Entering the temple must be with pure thoughts and without evil intentions. Otherwise, the people can have negative impacts,” he said.

Large animals such as snake, tiger and lion often came into view where there were people having evil intention attempting to get into the temple. Besides, people meditating improperly were often bullied by snakes. “A snake sizing the calf of adult man often passes through when people are meditating. Sometimes they are also guarded by a tiger,” he said.

Likewise, if there were people in cuntaka condition and desperate to come into the temple, they would be visited by a great man when arriving at home. “It was proved by the facts that many of them then came back to deliver canang oblation to the temple. They usually said if they have been harassed by strange creature,” said Jero Mangku.

For couples having no children for long time, after invoking in the temple they could have children. “It is often practiced by Hindu community in Bali. The couple came together and then they delivered canang oblation,” he said. (BTN/0150)
