Galungan virtue on Bukit, Bali, Indonesia
Galungan virtue on Bukit, Bali, Indonesia
Bukit (= hill) is the oval-shaped peninsula at the south of Bali, Indonesia. On the southwest coast, high on sheer cliffs, is the fascinating temple of Ulu Watu overlooking the tempestuous Samudera Hindia (Indian Ocean), with no land between here and Australia. This picture - taken somewhere in the middle of Bukit - shows two young men weaving ornaments from palm fronds to attach to a so-called "penjor" which will be erected for the Galungan festival (in 2007 on June 27). A penjor is a tall, curved bamboo pole which is decorated with various coconut leaves and beautiful woven ornaments; at its base there are wonderfully packaged fruits and other offerings. For festivals and ceremonies penjors are placed upright at the roadside of front gardens of homes and temples. They make a happy and colorful display. The Galungan festival takes place every 210 days (lasting 10 days). It celebrates the victory of Dharma (virtue) over Adharma (evil). The story is that of the evil, demon king Mayadenawa. Supernatural son of a goddess, he nonetheless turned to such terrible evil that he forbad the worship of God, destroyed the livelihood of his subjects by killing their crops. They were afraid to overthrow him because of his evil powers. Finally, though, in a viciously horrible battle in which Mayadenawa metamorphed into various birds and plants to elude the forces of good - the troops of the God Indra - he was finally killed. This triumph of Good over Evil is celebrated on Galungan. One might well imagine the great joy of the Balinese on this feast (which in many ways is like Christian Christmas - e.g. family visits, holiday atmosphere, wonderful decorations, a total holiday). Much of this was explained by the weaver on the right who was very surprised to see tourists on foot in this relatively remote part of Bukit. Incidentally, the wonderful smiles are not only apparent on this happy day but seem to be a common trait of many Balinese.
