Location: major temples island-wide [photo of Besakish mother temple grounds]
This special full moon is considered highly significant amongst Balinese Hindus. Known as 'Purnama Kedasa' in the local tongue, the day coincides with many major temples celebrating in festive rituals, attended by thousands of devotees. The famous mother temple, Besakih, holds a special ceremony known as 'Betara Turun Kabeh' on this special day, inviting the gods and deified ancestors for their blessings. A 'melasti' or purification pilgrimage usually takes place on the preceding Sunday, with processions carrying helrilooms and temple objects to sanctified water sources.
It's called Holis in India. - thanks Gregory

Another that was elsewhere was banned for its environmental theme but they got around that. Almost all are neighborhood projects. We saw six foreigners there. It went on past midnight. Almost no alcohol. Most people drinking water. Lots of young people. Such a civilized and well behaved crowd. We got lost from each other for a while. Katrinka commented on how comfortable she felt anyway. We went home by the beach walk in the dark. High tide. Waves lapping.

After the Ogoh Ogoh parade (coming from more than one direction) things get quiet and we move into Nyepi.
All day Wednesday, March 9th and all night till dawn the next day is Nyepi, day of silence, quiet, meditation and prayer in which everything is closed including the airport and people are to stay inside and not use lights or electricity if possible. Nothing on the roads but emergency and police. Some people go to hotels that they can do what they want to inside. Some leave town. We love it. Hunker down - and discretely cheat - like to tiptoe out to see the partial solar eclipse in the morning.
