Ganjaran

  • offering a common offering, consisting of fruit, egg, jaja, sugar cane, six small ketipats, ketipat gatep, tied together in two groups of three, called akelan, and a canang on top
  • normally used as offerings in shrines such as sanggah cucuk and in connection with penjor
  • used in Jimbaran to give to babutens after trance. Ganjaran may be used as a kind of sasaudan. The offering is made if someone is sick or if someone wants something badly. If the sickness is cured or if the object or objective desired is gained, the promiser makes the offering and takes it to the temple. The pemangku prays over them. In Jimbaran, they are often given by the pemangku to a babuten, a person in trance, who specifically asks for such things after the trance is finished. Ganjaran is also the name of an object that is made during a ngaben and later taken to the cemetery and burned. It is said to be a string of 227 kepeng carried on white and colored cotton thread between two bamboo poles in the cremation procesesion.
