Galungan & Kuningan Celebrations
Galungan marks the beginning of the most important recurring religious ceremonies on the island of Bali. The Holy ancestors are called to return to visit and bless us on Earth, and the current inhabitants have a responsibility to be hospitable through prayers, gratitude and offerings. From the Holy ancestors who taught the holy knowledge, to our own ancestral roots from where we came from, together are honoured and remembered with food and celebration. Hence, Galungan and Kuningan days are filled with enchanting ritual and auspicious ceremonies that celebrate the victory of dharma (good) over adharma (evil). Kuningan marks the end of the season when the ancestors return.
