Unique Ritual in Puseh Temple of Pasedahan Customary Village

Unique Ritual in Puseh Temple of Pasedahan Customary Village

The procession of Usabha Sambah ritual in the Puseh and Desa Temple of Pasedahan customary village, Manggis subdistrict, Karangasem, is absolutely unique. Aside from implementing the Melasti procession to Sengkidu Beach by carrying 28 sanctified effigies, the ritual taking place for five days (Oct 26-30) was also filled with the magibung local tradition or enjoying shared meal and nyambutin or a ritual for welcoming a baby.

Melasti is a procession to purify the sanctified effigies carried out by the whole local community. It was also accompanied with mapeed procession (traditional fashion) conducted by young girls walking hand in hand in Balinese traditional attires as far as 5 km. Started from the front row bringing long pennants, the row of sampyan and ritual paraphernalia and weapons of deities in the nine directions made the procession look so grandiose.

When getting to Sengkidu, the residents spontaneously performed a dance while stabbing their chest by kris dagger in front of the sanctified effigies. Besides, the residents also danced the Rejang Lilit, Pendet, Sramanan and Wawalen. The ritual was then concluded by closing ritual marked with the disposal of the Sambah paraphernalia.

The chief of customary village, I Ketut Gede Artana, accompanied by the temple priest Jro Mangku I Nengah Sujati said the deity Sambah enthroned during the temple anniversary in the Puseh Temple symbolized the grace of natural fertility. According to local communities of Pasedahan customary village, the Usabha Sambah ritual was interpreted as a momentous moment for deities to bestow their bounties.

More interestingly, in the implementation of Nyambutin was presented pajegan ritual paraphernalia. Young generation of Pasedahan customary village both staying at home and outside the village were obliged to participate in the activities. It is a ritual tradition inherited from generation to generation intended to welcome the presence and rebirth in order they could perfect themselves as human being of God. (BTN/015)
