The Paradise Island has many unique ceremonies and Pengerebongan is one of amazing ceremony. Pengerebongan is a ceremony which conducted by Kesiman Village’s Society in Pura Dalam Pengerebongan.
This ceremony is held every 210days, exactly Friday wuku Medangsia according to Balinese Calender system or the day after Kuningan Day. Pengerebongan Ceremony was taken from Kawi language “rebu”, it means party and makes us happy. This ceremony was created by Puri Agung Kesiman (Agung Kesiman Empire).
Before conducting this ceremony, Kesiman society does Tabuh Rah (Sowing chicken blood that used ceremony). The entire God’s Manifestation in Kesiman Village like Barong, Rangda and Pratima is come to Pura Dalem Pengerebongan. After that, all society of Kesiman Village is rounding the Wantilan (the building in middle area of Temple) three times. So many people are trance when the people bring God’s Manifestation and they lost their control.
After rounding 3 times, the entire God’s Manifestation is put in Gedong (the holy place to put God’s Manifestation). The societies pray together in Pura Dalem Pengerebongan. The function of Pengerebongan Ceremony is reminding the human about Tri Hita Karana Concept (three of the harmony, balance to create the peaceful and happiness). Don’t miss this ceremony, because it’s awesome and amazing but little bit mistic.
