Purnama Kedasa

Purnama Kedasa is a Balinese celebration that is held following the full moon’s appearance. It is an elaborate affair for the locals, with thousands coming outside to pay their respects.

The full moon’s appearance marks a special day for various traditional festivities. This is evident with the resplendent ceremonies at the island’s innumerable Hindu Temples. The reason for this is that locals believe this is the day that God comes down on earth to bless its inhabitants.

As part of these blessings, god also honours his people by bringing prosperity to the land. Locals usually make offerings at the temples and their homes to honour this day. The offerings consist of fresh foods, fruits and colourful flowers, a testament to the traditions the locals have held on to over the years.

Making offerings is often accompanied by the performance of various rituals. This includes bathing in holy waters as an act of cleansing, burning incense to chase away evil spirits, and using flower petals and grains of rice.

The occurrence of the full moon happens many times in any given year. For this reason, Purnama Kedasa is celebrated on multiple days every month. Depending on your visit, you may be excited to discover that the full moon celebrations will be held around when you are in Bali. Do not hesitate to interact with the locals during this period of time. It is probably the best way to learn more about their rich culture.
