Pagerwesi Holiday in Bali3 March 2010
Striving for Goodness and Purity, the Balinese Celebrate Pagerwesi Day. On Wednesday, March 2, 2010, Balinese Hindus marked Pagerwesi Day - a day intended to enhance dedication to God and safeguard the world.
Occurring every 210 days, Pagerwesi Day is celebrated in conjunction with Saraswati Day which fell earlier, on Friday, February 27th - the day when knowledge, learning and literature are celebrated. Pagerwesi demands that attractive palm-leaf decorations, flowers and fruits (banten) are placed as offerings in family compound temples where the devout rededicate themselves to God the Almighty. Repeating prayers and appeals made during the high holidays of Galungan and Kuningan - the Balinese seek Godís protection, praying for personal welfare and guidance in how best to lead good life.
These Pagerwesi prayers, following just 3 days after Saraswati, seek to take the learning and wisdom bestowed during the earlier holiday, embellishing them with soulful requests for purity, ensuring human wisdom is used to advance the human condition.
On another level, Pagerwesi seeks to strengthen h u m a n resolve in the on qoinq battle with evil enemies, both those found within our own souls and those threatening us from without. The celebration of Pagerwesi varies in different parts of Bali dictated, to some degree, by local beliefs and traditions. In the regency of Buleleng in North Bali, Pagerwesi is observed with greater fanfare than the high holiday of Galungan, with followers in the north fervently rejoicing in the victory of Dahrma (goodness) over Adharma (evil).
