Nyepi Day is celebrated every year New Caka (Caka turn of the year). Ie on the day Tilem Kesanga (IX) which is the day pesucian Gods in the central core of the ocean that brings living water Sarining (Tirtha Amertha Kamandalu). To the Hindu holy worship of these gods.

The main purpose of Nyepi is pleading kehadapan God Almighty, to purify Bhuwana Alit (human nature) and Bhuwana Great (the universe). Circuit Nyepi celebrations are as follows:

1. Tawur (Pecaruan), Pengrupukan, and Melasti.

The day before Nyepi, namely the "ping 14 Sasih panglong Kesanga" Hindus Yadnya Butha ceremony at a traffic and environment of each house, by taking salahg one of the types of "caru" according to his ability. Bhuta Yadnya respectively named; Panca Sata (small), Panca Kinsman (was), and Tawur Great (large).

Tawur or pecaruan itself a purification / pemarisudha Bhuta Kala, and all 'leteh' (dirty), hopefully everything vanished.

Caru conducted in each house consists of; foreign rice color (five colors) amounted to 9 duel / package, side dishes chicken brumbun (colored) tetabuhan with wine / wine. Yadnya Bhuta is addressed to the King Bhuta, Bhuta Kala Kala and Lord, by pleading that they do not disturb people.

Mecaru After the ceremony continued with pengerupukan, namely: spread-spread Tawur rice, torch-obori house and all the yard, house and yard menyemburi with mesui, and objects hitting anything (usually wide band) to quiet noisy / rowdy. This stage is to expel the Bhuta Kala from the home environment, yards, and environment.

Particularly in Bali, at this pengrupukan usually enlivened by a parade of ogoh-ogoh Bhuta Kala is a manifestation of being paraded around the neighborhood, and then burned. The goal at the Bhuta Kala expelled from the surrounding environment.

Then performed the sweep all Melasti leteh (gross) into the ocean, and purify "pretima". Done at sea, because the sea (ocean) is considered as a source Amertha Tirtha (Dewa Ruci, and Pemuteran Mandaragiri). No later than the Tilem afternoon, pelelastian done.

2. Nyepi

next day, on "panglong ping 15" (Tilem Kesanga), it was Hari Raya Nyepi. On this day done fast / peberatan Nyepi called Chess Beratha Penyepian and consists of; observed geni (no berapi-api/tidak use and / or the fire), observed the work (not working), observed lelungan (no travel) and observe lelanguan (do not listen to entertainment). This Beratha done since before sunrise.

According to the Hindus, all the things that are transitional, always preceded by a dark omen. For example a baby who will move into the children (1 oton / 6 months), the symbol is realized with 'matekep guwungan' (closed Sangkat chicken). Women who move from childhood to adult (Ngeraja Sewala), the ceremony was preceded by ngekep (dipingit).

So for the new period, followed by a new birth, which really began with a new page white. To start life in Caka / barupun years, this base is used, so there is time geni observed.

What is more important than than the symbol-a symbol of birth was (observed geni), according to Gama is Lontar Sundari memutihbersihkan heartstrings, and it is a must for Hindus.

Each of the men of knowledge (the wruhing tatwa dnjana) conduct; Bharata (curbing the passions), yoga (connecting people with paramatma (God), tapas (suffering endurance training), and samadhi (single entity to the Lord / Ida Sang Hyang Widhi), which aims born inner purity).

All of it becomes imperative for Hindus, so that will have inner readiness to face any challenge life in the new year. The habit of celebrating Hari Raya with the spree, gambling, drinking habits is something wrong and should be changed.

3. Ngembak Geni (Ngembak Fire)

Last of the celebration of Nyepi is a day that Ngembak Geni date falls on a ping linings (1) Sasih kedasa (X). On the day This is the new year begins Caka. Hindus bersilahturahmi with large families and neighbors, I'm sorry forgive each other (ksama), one another.

With the new atmosphere, new life will begin with a clean white hearts. So if the year ends each BC December 31, and the new year begins January 1st, the year ended panglong Caka limolas ping (15) Sasih kedasa (X), and the new year began on 1 Sasih kedasa (X).

Balinese calendars, with exemplifications for each day signaling what activities that day is favorable for, are popular souvenirs. Apart from the everyday Western calendar, the Balinese also use two local calendars, the saka and the wuku calendar. The wuku calendar is used to fix festival dates. The calendar uses 10 different weeks, each by one to 10 days and all running at the same time.

The Galungan festival, Bali's major fete, is held throughout the island and is an annual event in the wuku year. During this ten day historic period all the gods, including the sovereign deity Sanghyang Widi, come down to earth for the celebrations. Barongs prance from temple to temple and village to village. The last and most important day of the ten day fete is called Kuningan.

Hindu saka calendar is a lunar cycle that more intimately follows our own year in terms of the length of the year. Nyepi is a major festival of the saka year, it's the last day of the year, the day after the new moon on the ninth month.

The Nyepi jubilations start on the day of the Dead Moon, when "Tawur Agung Kesanga" (Great Sacrificial Ceremony) rituals' are held in welcoming the "Nyepi" holiday. The ritual will be followed by procession of "Ogoh-Ogoh" (huge monster dolls) representing evil spirits along the village and city roads in the eventide.

"Nyepi" Day is a Holiday and a day of absolute silence through out the island when no activity takes place, no traffic is seen anyplace, no fire is lit. It's the day of self-introspection for Hindhu followers - the evil feelings are tricked into thinking that the entire island is deserted and therefore go away. On this day you will not be permitted to leave your hotel - most hotels and hangouts will operate with reduced staff and some services may be affected such as room service, limited restaurant hours. The airport is also officially came together.

Nyepi Day comparable certain major temples festivals are ascertained by the saka rather than the wuku calendar. This causes the actual date difficult to influence from our calendar since the lunar saka does not follow a fixed number of days like the wuku calendar. The full moons around the end of September to the commencing of October or from early to mid-April are often the times for authoritative temple festivals.
