Nyepi is a Balinese “Day of Silence” that is commemorated every Isakawarsa (Saka new year) according to the Balinese calendar (in 2018, it falls on March 17). It is a Hindu celebration mainly celebrated in Bali, Indonesia.
On the Nyepi Day Bali shuts down that means no cars, planes, people out in the streets and no shops open.
In the Ashram we come in on the evening before Nyepi after the Ogoh Ogoh parade. The parade happens around 6pm the Day before Nyepi therefore roads will be closed off and there will no regular New Moon Puja.

Nyepi closing ceremony : Following day after Nyepi at 5am with Agni Hotra lead by the Guru of the Ashram.
Ceremony on full moon is very important because the Sakti, Mother energy of the Universe, is rising and moving. You can more easily receive the energy and potentially your kundalini may rise more quickly.
Here the moon is reflecting the sun’s energy 100%. The moon is taking the energy from the sun and reflecting it down to the earth to move the energy for the people. This is like the father who supplies the mother with the money to buy food for the children (father sun, mother moon).
Tumpek Landep is celebrated across Bali as a metal day where all sacred metal items are blessed as well as material metal items such as cars and machinery. In the Ashram Tumpek Landep is celebrated as Shiva Shambo and the Trishula or Trident and sharpening our minds.
When looked upon as a weapon of Shiva, the trishula is said to destroy the three worlds: the physical world, the world of the forefathers (representing culture drawn from the past) and the world of the mind (representing the processes of sensing and acting). In the human body, the trishula also represents the place where the three main nadi, or energy channels (ida, pingala and shushmana) meet at the brow.
