Full Moon Ceremony in Bali
It is said there is never a day in Bali without a ceremony of some kind and if you include all the life cycle rites (baby ceremonies, puberty rites, weddings, cremations,Temple festivals), then this adage is probably true. There are definitely certain times that are “ceremony-heavy” such as the full moons in April and October and the high holy days of Galungan
In Bali noticed many Balinese people in traditional dress and found out it is Purnama, full moon. Full moon ceremonies called purnama, are important for Balinese, who use a lunar calendar. Usually during Purnama, the village temple will feature special prayers, wayang puppet performances, arja plays, Balinese dancing. Towering offerings called sesajen, are also brought to the temple.
Balinese believe if you bathe in water containing fragrant frangipani flowers, under the light of the full moon, you will enjoy youthfullness and good health. Might be a good time to cruise the streams with a flashlight! Planting fruit bearing trees is encouraged on Purnama. In Bali everything has a place and time.
