MAKEPUNG LAMPIT

Different from the regular Makepung Race, MakepungLampit is held in wetlands, where a pair of buffalo pull the Lampit, or the wooden board, on muddy terrain. Inspired by the Balinese agrarian traditions, MakepungLampit signifies the gotong royong culture, where everyone joins to help each other. In the villages, everyone is helping on the land-levelling process to prepare for the harvesting season. This traditions initiates MakepungLampit.

TUMPEK WAYAN CEREMONY

Another reason why Tumpek Wayang is important for the locals is that it represents various transitions on the traditional calendar and is a connection between the following days: Saniscara, Kajeng, Kilown and Wayang. As a transitional point, this holiday plays a sacred role for locals.

Another key aspect of these celebrations that make the day so special is that devout Balinese celebrate the day as one that marks the birth of the Lord Kala. Local mythology hints that the birth of Kala may have been the result of unplanned intercourse between Shiva god and Uma goddess, although it is important to note that there are several variations to this mythology.

These variations, however, all point to the coming together of Shiva and Uma, which is why each celebration involves purification rites followed by the signature puppet show. This show is staged at the different temples, and is titled ‘Sapuh Leger’.

Whenever you are in Bali during Tumpek Wayang, look out for the puppet shows staged at different locations. Interact with the locals to learn a thing or two about their culture.
