Melukat – Balinese Purification Ceremony

Derived from lukat, which means purify, Melukat aims to refine the mind inside human body from the bad elements. This ceremony is mostly held after bad things happened to someone, like they got sick, had been in an accident, or merely feel restless. Balinese do believe the power of water, which is a crucial element in Balinese ceremony either as a blessing or as cleansing our negative energy.
Melukat will be held in Sebatu or Tirta Empul Holy Spring Temple. During the ritual, the priest will recite a lot of Balinese prayers but don’t worry; you will not get lost in translation as a butler will be at your side. He will explain to you the meaning of each step of the ritual as well as guide you throughout the ceremony. At the end of the ceremony, the Pemangku will tie a bracelet made of tricolor string called a benang tridatu around your wrist. It is believed that this string will protect one from bad energy as you are under the constant protection of the Gods. Don’t take off the bracelet, just wear it until it falls off your wrist on its own.
