New Spirit

gede-palgunadiFor most children in Bali, the feast celebration is definitely a very pleasant and intriguing moment like Galungan festivity falling every 210 days based on pawukon system in Balinese calendar. In the realm of children, of course, the celebration should normally be marked with something, if possible, all-new.
They cover new prayer clothing supplies, new shoes, new sandals and so on. Galungan celebration – symbolizing the victory of Dharma (truth) against Adharma (untruth)—is marked by new smiles, laughter and fun so that there is a new spirit in the world of children.

For the world of the adults, interpretation of the celebration is not necessarily the same as their world. However, they are essentially the same namely how the celebration raises and generates new religious spirit in the development of life. This is very important because it can encourage new spirit namely animating the spiritual strength to live the life having the complexity of varied problems.
Balinese people should interpret the religious festivities more contemplatively, not give impression to be stuck to the surface of ceremonial uproars. It must be orientated to the philosophical aspect. However, to be honest we are often still stuck to regular activities of the ceremony itself without occasionally making contemplation, looking for the essence of the religious celebration itself.

This is particularly important when Balinese people today are faced with very diverse interests. There is a great temptation between the desire to maintain the constancy, harmony of nature and culture as well as Balinese human itself in the middle of the brunt of hedonistic culture carried by the capitalistic economy. Strengthening self-identity is very significant when Balinese people seem to be standing at a crossroads. They look confused and hesitant to decide where to go.

Leaping forward is definite. With a strong philosophical foundation, Bali will certainly continue to have a meaning. New spirit must be generated every time celebrating a religious holiday. Ritual spirits should not only be confined in a series of ceremonial procession. Balinese human should renew itself. With the new with spirits and ideas, they can arrive at the new ideals and expectations. (Gde Palgunadi/ This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
