History and uniqueness of Pura Besakih

This was the origin of Besakih, before there was nothing there only timber and wilderness in the place, so before there Rupek Sea (Strait of Bali).

The island of Bali and Java still be one first and not separated by the sea. Long island called Pulau Dawa. In East Java that is in Mount Rawang (now known as Raung) there is a Yogi or a hermit sage named Markandeya.

He came and Hindustan (India), by his followers called Rawang for Giri Batara spiritual purity, skills and wisdom (magic Sidhi ngucap). At first, the Yogi Markandeya Demulung recluse in the mountains, then moved to the mountain Hyang (supposedly mountain DIYENG Hyang is in Central Java who came and said AT Hyang).

He meditated so long in there, got a decree from Hyang Widhi Wasa, so he and his followers in the island forests merabas Dawa after completion, so that the land was distributed to his followers. The Yogi Markandeya executed the order and immediately went to the east with the accompanist, a number of escorts approximately 8000 people.

After arriving at the destination of the Markandeya Yogi ordered all the escorts working merabas wilderness, to be implemented as it should. When merabas forests, many of the attendant of the Yogi Markandeya sick and dying and the dead there are also eaten by wild animals, because it is not preceded by a ceremony yadnya (bebanten / offerings) perabasan then stopped and the forest Yogi Markandeya back to the original hermitage ( It was said to roar in the mountains of East Java.

For some time the Yogi Markandeya lived in the mountain roar. On a day which is considered good (Adult Ayu), he returned to continue the forest perabasan to opening new areas, accompanied by the sage and ascetics who will be invited together kehadapan nugraha pleaded wara Hyang Widhi Wasa to the success of this work.

This time his followers amounted to 4000 people who came and Age village (population at the foot of the mountain roar) carrying agricultural equipment, including more seeds to be planted in the forest which will dirabas it.

After arriving at the destination, the Yogi Markandeya immediately how yoga meditation together other yogis and offer yadnya ceremony (offering), the god Yadnya Yadnya and Blind. After the ceremony was over, his followers were put to work perabasan continuing forest, felling trees and others started and south to north.

Because it is perceived there are enough dirabas forest, so thanks nugraha wara asung Hyang Widhi Wasa, The Yogi perabasan Markandeya ordered forest, it stopped and he began a division-division of land for his followers made their respective fields, and housing tegal .

In places where the forest begins perabasan Yogi Markandeya The pitcher plant (payuk) containing water, as well as metal Pancadatu namely gold, silver, copper, iron and bronze with a diamond Mirah Adi (main diamond) and upakara (bebanten / offerings) more sprinkled tirta Pangentas (holy water).

Place where the tools were planted BASUKI named. Since then the followers of the Yogi Markandeya who came in next time as well as forest merabas for opening new territory, no longer overridden where a disaster as never experienced before. Such a quote from Markandeya Purana ejection of the origins of the village and the temple of Besakih as mentioned earlier named Basuki and in its growth, to this day called Besakih.

Perhaps based on these experiences, and also based on what is contained in the teachings of Hinduism on Panca Yadnya, so far every time Hindus will build something good building houses, shops, offices up to the Temple building, so start working on fields or at companies, they held first as upakara yadnya Nasarin or Mendem Basic Building. Only then the work begins, with the hope to find success in the Hindu religious spiritual side efforts done by the physical energies and skills, or skills they possess.

Further attention to the contents of Markandeya Purana's ejection was also connected with the realities that we see everyday so far about the order of community life, especially in rural settings and subak cuAstomary in the paddies. Therefore we may conclude that the Besakih is the first place of our ancestors who migrated from the mountains of East Java roar in the early to build a village and employment particularly in agriculture and animal husbandry. Similarly, develop religious teachings of Hinduism.

Sangeh, Island of Bali, The Beauty Of The Mystery Until Nutmeg Forest.

Nature Park Sangeh, maybe it has not been known by the people of Indonesia, while Sangeh located on an island that is famous in Bali Indonesia. Nature Tourism Park is located in the Village Sangeh Sangeh, Badung, Bali, about 20km from Denpasar.

Sangeh Nature Park has a charm that many forest tourism inhabited by hundreds of monkeys. Sangeh monkeys previously been known for a very wild and often interfere with the visitors. Apes Sangeh also known to be very ignorant, because often pick up Brang pengunung that will be returned when the monkeys were given a piece of food. But now no longer apes Sangeh wild and sejahil first, because now these monkeys have been well cared for.

Apes Sangeh also has several groups, each group has one leader. But these groups have the leadership or teringgi practically king of the monkey king in Sangeh. This supreme leader dwelt on the most extensive. This monkey king place to live, there is a very famous temple The temple is kesakralannya Sari Bulit. Somehow, the monkey leader chosen because it has the power and charisma that is extraordinary.

Even they have rights more than other apes, such as marriage or the female monkeys received food rations. Monkey king will usually receive rations until he was satisfied first, before providing the rations to the other apes. Most of this forest tour, a place of living apes, only a small portion of the entrepreneurs used to make a few stalls selling a wide range of souvenirs.

This tour forest overgrown with plants is a lot of nutmeg (dipterocarpustrinervis). According to information nutmeg forest has hundreds of years old, even among the nutmeg trees which are said to have lived there for more than three hundred years. According to the manager of this Park, Forest Tourism Sangeng created as a royal park Mengwi. In order to look beautiful garden planted with a special nutmeg trees imported from Mount Agung.

Actually making the park plan is finally making dirahasikan but this park is known by some people, consequently making the park was stopped, until the area was named Sangeh, which artingya anyone to see. If we had a chance to visit this park, we would be interested in the beauty of the nutmeg trees that grow in the forest, because in addition to the growth of straight, nutmeg tree also has a very good wood.

Yet strangely, according to several sources said Sangeh nutmeg trees can not be planted elsewhere. Until the people who want to have a tree Nutmeg wood never happen. There are interesting things told by the visitors and organizers Sangeh Park about an old tree and would have collapsed. From the estimates many people, the tree will fall towards Pura Bukit Sari, but in reality all were off the mark. Initially the tree will be felled but no one dared for fear of a curse.

"Around the beginning of January, finally collapsed tree itself, leading to the southwest. Just between buildings and Pewaregan Kulkul Bale, so very little damage, only the outer walls alone Pewaregan. This should be surprising because the tree fell right in the temple's main building , "said Sumohon. In addition to the nutmeg tree, there is still a popular plant in the woods Sangeh.

Ordinary local people call it the Tree: A Question Wadon, because the bottom of the hole so the tree resembles the female genitalia, while in the middle of the growing rod hole that leads down to look like a male genitalia. The tree was growing right in the front yard and tourist attractions are actually Sangeh pule tree. In Bali, pule tree has many features because the wood is often used for special purposes, for example, create a mask that is used as sungsungan.

Society sometimes requesting that pule wood, Subawa said. But, of course should not just people taking the wood or branches that must be adjusted before her good days and give an offering as a sign asking for permission.

traditional buffalo race race

When we hear the phrase: "Bull-Racing", perhaps our thoughts drifted to the island of Madura, famous for its "Karapan Cow". Turns out there "Buffalo Racing" or "Buffalo Racing" is no less popular among the people of Bali, especially Western dibagian, known as the "Makepung".

Can be understood why the people of Bali choose melombakan buffalo than cattle, because the cow is an animal mounts used by the god Shiva and is considered as a sacred animal by Hindus. In Bali, especially Western dibagian, around the town of State, Makepung is a traditional event conducted several times each year, this Makepung strangely not so popular for people dibagian other Balinese. I visited kedesa Kaliakah, about 5 Kilometers from the State, to record the incident / event.

This event is a pre-qualified for a major event, namely the Governor Cup win. Implementation, in general, is to divide groups from various villages, into 2 groups: Group North with the Red costumes and Southern Group Green costume. The day before the event, the arena was packed with Makepung the pelomba from various villages, with their buffaloes best. I have never seen so many buffalo somewhere as I have seen this area of Mekepung. These buffaloes maintained and treated like the best athlete. It is said that before the race, buffaloes are given special food menu, full of herbs that produce extra energy.

Apparently "doping" is not a forbidden thing diarena this:) They are capable of, bringing their buffaloes using trucks, while the less able, to walk a good distance from their villages and chariot drawn by using a motorcycle taxi motorcycle. At night, the atmosphere like a "Night Market", characterized by a variety of both food and attractions stage with music that sting and certainly do not miss alcoholic beverages. Before dawn, the owners of the buffalo that will diperlombakan, making arrangements with certain rituals and decorating their buffaloes with Asesories-Asesories the colors.

Apparently this Buffalo team also has the names of exotic, such as: Wiro Sableng, Juwita Night and others. For the Balinese, there is nothing out of the "ritual" and "offering", so does this Makepung diarena, can be seen the people placing offerings, offering various locations, such as the corners of death and especially in the "Start and Finish ". I always respect all the cultural events of various regions, ethnicities and nationalities, but at this Makepung event, as an animal lover, I was somewhat disturbed.

Although buffaloes were treated like an athlete in the daily maintenance, but the event is how the jockey race buffaloes were somewhat exaggerated to say even sadistic. Buffaloes were beaten with a stick wrapped with nails them hard, which caused the wounds in these buffaloes. Some of the Dutch tourist who saw Makepung, closed their eyes and left the arena, probably because not bear to see how the buffaloes were treated.

I urge the Makepung and event organizer or whatever race of animals, to enforce a strict rule about the treatment of the animals that are diperlombakan. As in every race, there are winners and some losers, but at this Makepung event, just "The Bad Loser" seems to get the most lively applause from the audience. Perhaps this buffaloes successfully overturned the sadistic-jockey who was ...!

Tariff staying at Candidasa is tilted. But what about food? Restaurants were easily found in Candidasa, a tourist area located about 12 miles west of Amlapura, the capital city of Karangasem regency, or about 65 kilometers east of Denpasar.

History will be described as follows: In some sources mentioned, around the year 1489 AD came to the island of Bali a purohita, writers and clergy named Danghyang Dwijendra. Danghyang Dwijendra was a Hindu priest, the birth of Kediri, East Java. Dwijendra at Danghyang named Danghyang Nirartha walaka. He married a princess of Daha, east Java.

At the same place he studied and in-diksa by-law. Nirartha Danghyang endowed with bhiseka kawikon Dwijendra Danghyang name.

Dharmayatra this should be implemented in the island of Bali, with the addition of a very heavy task of arranging in-law of customary and religious life, especially in the island of Bali. If necessary dharmayatra it can be forwarded to the Sasak and Sumbawa Island.
Danghyang Dwijendra come to the island of Bali, first set foot on the southwestern coastal region of Jembrana for a moment to rest before continuing the journey dharmayatra.
This is where Danghyang Dwijendra left pemutik (there is also mention pengutik) with shaft (starch) wood rack. Starch wood shelf life and it turned out to be a tree thrives shelf. Until now the leaves are used as a wood shelf banten completeness in Bali.
As a reminder and tribute to him, built a temple named Purancak.

That's why this place is called Cangeling and gradually became Cengiling until now. Hence, Ida Rauh Pedanda Wawu ngulati Sakti (find) a place deemed safe and appropriate to do Parama moksha.
Therefore deemed ineligible, he moved again to another location. In this place, then built a temple called Pura toadstool. The name was derived from the word ngulati. The temple is located in the village of Pecatu. As he walked to get a new location deemed eligible for Parama moksha, Ida Rauh Wawu Pedanda Sakti very sad and crying inside her. Why? Because he was not willing to leave this world because the scale has not felt completely swadharmanya, namely the Hindu life together in the Sasak and Sumbawa. In place of this mengangis he then founded a temple called Pura cry (tears of origin of the word).
This temple is located in tears Middle Village Banjar Adat Pecatu. Ida Rauh Pedanda Wawu Sakti have not found a place that is appropriate for Parama moksha. He then arrived at a place full of big stones. He was just alone. In this place, and erected a temple called Pura Batu Diyi. Also in this place Dwijendra Danghyang feel less safe for Parama moksha. With a fairly exhausting journey of hunger and thirst, he finally arrived in the hills area who always got the hot sun.
For the umbrella away, he took a piece of leaf beetles and try to get drinking water sources. After the tour did not find the source of drinking water, Dwijendra Danghyang finally stuck his stick. Amertha water came out. In this place and built a temple called Pura Umbrella with springs used Tirtha means until now. Ida Rauh Pedanda Wawu Sakti then moved again to another location, to amuse themselves before carrying out the seconds back to the origin. In this place and built a temple called Pura Selonding located in Banjar Kangin Desa Adat Pecatu. After amusing himself satisfied, Danghyang Dwijendra feel tired.
So he was looking for a place to rest. I was so tired to the point that he was quiet (overslept). In this place and built a temple called Pura Parerepan (parerepan means pasirepan, the inn) is located in the village of Pecatu. Approaching the final seconds to Parama moksha, Dwijendra Danghyang cleanse themselves and mulat sarira first. In this place until now stands a Hindu temple called Pura Pangleburan located in the village of Banjar Adat Pecatu Kauh. After purifying himself, he went on his way to the location of the southwestern tip of Bali. This place consists of the cliff rocks. If the note from below sea level, looking at each other joins, shaped head perched on the cliff rocks, with a height of between 50-100 meters from the sea surface.
Thus called Uluwatu. Ulu watu mean head and means stone. Before Danghyang Dwijendra Parama moksha, he called the boat owners who had brought it from Sumbawa to Bali. Boat skipper named Ki Pacek Nambangan Boat. The Pandita for help to skipper a boat carrying clothes and his staff to his fourth wife in pasraman Griya Sakti Mas in Banjar Pule, Mas village, Ubud, Gianyar. Clothing was a green silk robe and a wooden stick young.

After Ki Pacek Nambangan pasraman boat headed in Danghyang Dwijendra Mas, Ida Rauh Pedanda Wawu Sakti immediately to a large rock pile east of stone relics of the former Royal temple of Sri Wira Dalem Kesari. On top of that rock, Ida Rauh Pedanda Wawu yoga Sakti mengranasika, like the keris off so urangka, disappeared without a trace, amoring acintia Parama moksha.
