Pantai Pandawa

Pandawa Beach may still sound unfamiliar and not-so-famous for today. But this beach has a million charms that have not been exposed and are still squeezed by limestone cliffs. Situated in the village of kutuh, Sub-District of South Kuta, Badung Regency, it is located approximately 3 km from the tourist area of Nusa Dua and Uluwatu Temple. Originally, Pandava Beach is known as the Secret Beach, because it’s hidden behind a row of rocky hills which is just overgrown by bushes.

a closer look at pagerwesi holy day in bali

Every Hindu’s religious ceremony in Bali has a foundation of good days of implementation commonly called Wariga, as well as the foundation of the intended manifestation of the god Ida Sang Hyang Widhi Wasa. Through this religious foundation and basis, the implementation of Hinduism in Bali is very diverse, one of which is the Pagerwesi holy day. Pagerwesi is one of the important holy day for Hindus in Bali. The name “Pagerwesi” comes from the word “pager” which means fence and “wesi” which means iron, which literally means iron fence. This day is interpreted as a time to strengthen our self with knowledge and wisdom, and also to ask for protection from Sang Hyang Pramesti Guru, the manifestation of Lord Shiva. The celebration of Pagerwesi Day is held on Budha (Wednesday) Kliwon Wuku Shinta, once every 210 days. This celebration is close to Saraswati Day, which is also related to knowledge. The celebration of Pagerwesi begins with making offerings and pray at the sanggah (family praying place), then to the extended family temple and the village temple. However, some areas in Bali celebrate Pagerwesi with different customs. One of them is in Buleleng with a scale like Galungan Day celebration and carrying out the Munjung tradition (pilgrimage to the setra (grave) of relatives). In daily life, the meaning of Pagerwesi Day can be applied as follows: 1.         Self-Protection: like a strong iron fence, we are reminded to always guard ourselves with knowledge and wisdom to avoid negative influences. 2.         Reflection and Meditation: this day is also a moment for self-reflection and meditation, strengthening faith and spirituality. 3.         Purity and Wisdom: through this celebration, Hindus ask for purity and wisdom that will guide them in their daily lives. 4.         Harmony and Prosperity: Pagerwesi teaches the importance of maintaining harmony in life and striving to achieve shared prosperity. By understanding and applying these values, Pagerwesi is not only a ritual celebration, but also provides guidance for a better and more meaningful life every day.

saraswati day: honoring the goddess of knowledge in bali

Saraswati Day is one of the significant a holy day for Hindus in Bali. This celebration holds special meaning, particularly for those involved in the field of education such as students, teachers, lecturers, and other knowledge workers. In Hindu teachings, Saraswati Day is considered the day when sacred knowledge descends, believed to bring prosperity, progress, and increased understanding for humanity. Meaning and Celebration Saraswati Day is observed every six months on Saniscara (Saturday) Umanis Wuku Watugunung. On this day, Balinese Hindus celebrate with various special ceremonies and rituals. In schools, teachers and students prepare for worship ceremonies. They also perform prayers in temples, homes, and offices. Books, palm leaf manuscripts, and writing tools are placed in a special location for ceremonial offerings, symbolizing respect for the Goddess Saraswati. Goddess Saraswati in Legend In Hindu legend, Saraswati is depicted as the Goddess or wife of the God Brahma. She is the protector and bestower of knowledge, consciousness (widya), and literature. Thanks to the blessings of Goddess Saraswati, humans become knowledgeable, cultured, and civilized. Saraswati is often portrayed as a goddess sitting on a lotus flower, riding a swan (hamsa) or peacock. She has four arms holding a sitar or veena and a gayatri in her right hands, while her left hands hold a manuscript or book and play the veena. Rituals and Traditions On Saraswati Day, worship of Goddess Saraswati is performed only in the morning and afternoon, according to the Sundarigama manuscript. After ceremonies in schools, devotees continue their prayers in various places. This ritual underscores the importance of knowledge in daily life as a moral and spiritual foundation. Banyupinaruh: Continuing the Celebration The Saraswati Day celebration continues with Banyupinaruh, which falls on the following Sunday, during the wuku Sinta. Banyupinaruh marks the beginning of a new pawukon in the Balinese calendar. On this day, Balinese Hindus seek water sources such as the sea, campuhan (the confluence of fresh and sea water), or other water sources to perform Pengelukatan (melukat). This ritual involves cleansing oneself with water, symbolizing the purification of the soul with knowledge. Saraswati Day is not just a religious celebration but also a tribute to knowledge and education. Through this observance, Balinese Hindus express gratitude and appreciation for the gift of knowledge bestowed by Goddess Saraswati. Thus, Saraswati Day becomes an important moment for reflection and strengthening the commitment to the development of knowledge and culture.
