Usage Examples

I Nyoman Supada Artha (Panyarikan Pura Alus Arum, Desa Bangah, Baturiti, Tabanan):

"Aji sane kamargiang nemonin rahina Pagerwesi puniki, inggihang aji tabuh rah."

[Basa alus-singgih]
[example 1]
I Nyoman Supada Artha (Ritual Secretary for Pura Alus Arum, Desa Bangah, Baturiti, Tabanan):

"With what we will do on this Pagerwesi (i.e., the ritual day for self-fortification), we will proceed with the tabuh rah."

[Humble-high speech level]

NB: In Desa Bangah at this particular temple (Pura Alus Arum) on this particular day (Pagerwesi), the tabuh rah does not occur in the usual series of three ritually-sanctioned cockfights. Instead, the tradition here is to have fighting cock by-proxies made of don jarak (castor bean leaves) fitted with bamboo spurs. These spurred leaves are tossed into a makeshift cockfighting ring just outside the temple grounds, and the fight is deemed sufficient when one (or both) of the leaves are torn by the opponent's spur.
