Just about a week after Nyepi, a Balinese New Year and ‘Day of Silence’, a island now turns a concentration to another vital holiday.
Banks, supervision agencies, educational institutions, and offices opposite Bali sealed down on Wednesday for Galungan to give Balinese Hindus a event to celebrate.
Galungan is a Balinese feast holiday that falls twice a year to applaud a delight of good (dharma) over immorality (adharma) and is followed 10 days after by Kuningan. The initial Galungan of 2017 falls on Apr 5, while Kuningan is Apr 15.
Dotting a streets and adorning a homes of Balinese families, you’ll see penjor, prolonged bamboo sticks flashy with coconuts leaves—aka Bali’s Christmas tree.
Bali’s governor, Made Mangku Pastika addressed a island, propelling Hindus to hang to a loyal hint of Galungan and simulate on a onslaught of good over immorality within any individual.
“Let us consider together, if we already have a certain nature, as with a teachings of a dharma. If so, afterwards we’ve authorised dharma to win over a dharma and are estimable to applaud Galungan,” Pastika pronounced on Sunday, as quoted by a Rancah Post.
