          Bali's Melasti Ceremony

          Where did this ceremony take place:


          In English

          [EN] Melasti means a purificatory ritual which commonly takes place on shores, lakes or big rivers. According to most Balinese, Melasti is done before Nyepi day. However, some areas do Melasti ritual after Nyepi day. If there are big ceremonies in temples, especially Kahyangan Desa and Kahyangan Jagat, people also do Melasti ceremony. The Hindu Religion all over the world is also known as religion of water (tirtha) because the Hindus always use water in their religious duties. Purifying oneself in holy water is a compulsory activity for the Hindus. Since the Vedic Scriptures mention that the holy Ganges water from the sacred land of Bharata Warsa is mixed with the ocean water, the Hindus do purificatory ceremonies on shores.

          In Indonesian

          [ID] melasti berarti upacara penyucian yang biasanya dilakukan di laut, danau atau sungai yang besar. Menurut kebanyakan masyarakat Bali, Melasti dilakukan sebelum hari raya Nyepi. Namun ada juga beberapa daerah di Bali yang melakukan upacara Melasti sesudah Nyepi. Apabila ada upacara besar di pura, utamanya di Kahyangan Desa atau Kahyangan Jagat, orang-orang juga melakukan upacara Melasti. Agama Hindu di seluruh dunia dikenal juga dengan agama tirtha, karena senantiasa menggunakan air ketika melakukan kewajiban agama. Menyucikan diri di sumber air suci adalah kewajiban yang mesti dilakukan oleh umat Hindu. Karena dalam Kitab Suci Veda termuat bahwa air laut mengandung campuran air suci Gangga yang mengalir dari Bharata Warsa, maka umat Hindu melakukan penyucian di laut.
