Examples of work

Mamunjung is a form of respect and solidarity with the deceased. It realizes by the family visiting their late relative in cemetery, then spend their time having meals together with the dead. The tradition has been practicing since the Hindu-Buddhist period. It is well developed both in Java and Bali. The community practices this activity on certain days, such as Galungan, Kuningan and Pagerwesi day while in Java, they carry out Memunjung during holidays such as Idul Fitri. Balinese Hindu offers Tampelan punjung and Banten punjung to the spirit of ancestors, families or relatives at home or cemetery. In certain days, the visitor brings the deceased’s favorite food to the cemetery then they enjoy the meal together with the dead. Recently, the custom to visit the grave is rarely done by Balinese, especially to those who live in regional areas that do not have strict rules about burial. Some argue that the increasing Balinese’s standard of living as well as technological advancements, contribute to change people mindset about the funeral in the present. Hence, there are only a few areas that are still practicing burial for the dead.
