Hal yang Kamu Harus Tahu Soal Nyepi di Bali

Familiar dengan Nyepi dan Tahun Baru Saka?

Hari Raya Nyepi merupakan Hari Raya umat Hindu yang diselenggarakan setiap Tahun Baru Saka. Di tahun ini, kita akan merayakannya pada tanggal 9 Maret mendatang.

Curious? Di sesi Bali Inspiration ini, anak dari bali akan kasi tahu Hal yang Harus Kamu Tahu Soal Nyepi di Bali!

  1. Apa itu Hari Raya Nyepi?
    Seperti namanya itu berarti “sepi”, “sipeng” yang artinya sepi, hening, senyap.
    Tahun Baru Saka dirayakan oleh umat Hindu dengan sepi dan hening. Tanpa kegaduhan atau aktivitas apapun.
  2. Mengapa Perayaan Tahun Baru itu Sepi?
    Simple statement,”emang begitu adanya”. Dari sudut pandang anak dari bali itu memang sudah kebijakansanaan leluhur kami untuk merayakan Nyepi dengan hening dan fokus kepada aktivitas spiritual, seperti menjernihkan pikiran, introspeksi diri, dsb.
  3. Rangkaian Hari Raya Nyepi apa saja?
    Melasti

    https://anakdaribali.files.wordpress.com/hal-yang-harus-kamu-tahu-soal-nyepi-di-bali

    Berasal dari kata Mala=kotoran/leteh dan Asti=membuang/memusnahkan. Ini bertujuan untuk membersihkan kotoran yang ada di badan dan pikiran manusia (Bhuana Alit) dan juga sarana upacara (Bhuana Agung), serta memohon air suci kehidupan bagi kesejahteraan umat manusia.

    Tawur Agung/Tawur Kesanga atau Pengerupukan

    https://anakdaribali.files.wordpress.com/hal-yang-harus-kamu-tahu-soal-nyepi-di-bali
    https://anakdaribali.files.wordpress.com/hal-yang-harus-kamu-tahu-soal-nyepi-di-bali

    Kalo liat ogoh-ogoh pada diarak di jalan, nah itu dia rangkaian dari hari pengerupukan.
    Dilaksanakan sehari sebelum Nyepi pada Tilem Sasih Kesanga. Tawur kemudian diikuti dengan Pengerupukan. Filosofinya adalah manusia harus menjaga keseimbangan dengan alam. Umat manusia harus memberikan timbal balik kepada lingkungan.
    Biasanya upacara pengerupukan, kami menyebarkan nasi tawur, mengobori rumah, membuat suara gaduh dengan perabot, untuk membersihkan rumah dari kekuatan negatif. Selain itu ada juga arak-arakan ogoh-ogoh sebagai simbolis sifat-sifat raksasa yang nantinya akan dibakar.

    Ngembak Geni
    Sehari setelah Nyepi, kami sudah bisa beraktivitas kembali. Biasanya hari ini diisi dengan mesima krama atau mengunjungi kerabat dan saudara, serta bermaaf-maafan.

  4. Kalo Nyepi ngapain aja?
    Umat Hindu biasa melakukan Catur Brata Penyepian, yaitu
    Amati Geni : tidak menyalakan api, artinya tidak mengobarkan hawa nafsuAmati Karya: Tidak melakukan kegiatan dna berkativitas apapun, hanya fokus pada kegiatan rohani.
    Amati Lelungan: Tidak berpergian. Kami tetap berada di rumah.
    Amati Lelanguan: Tidak bersenang-senang dan berfoya-foya.Oleh karena itu, semua kegiatan dan aktivitas di Bali benar-benar lumpuh pada perayaan Hari Raya Nyepi. Sampai bandara dan pelabuhan juga ditutup. Kendaraan bermotor tidak beroperasi. Ketika malam hari tidak boleh menyalakan lampu. Jadi, ramah lingkungan banget kan? hehe
  5. Apa kalian tidak bosan tidak beraktivitas?
    Balik ke diri kalian lagi, aku pribadi menahan godaan memang susah. Menurut anak dari bali sendiri, Nyepi itu adalah hari yang keren banget? Kenapa? Semua hari raya keren kok! Tapi kapan lagi kalian bisa liat bintang, introspeksi, dan rileks? Setelah selama ini kalian sibuk dengan aktivitas kalian dan kadang lupa dengan kegiatan rohani.
    Selain itu kalian juga berkontribusi untuk earth hours. Kece kan?

Gimana udah terbayang? tertarik untuk ikut nyepi di Bali? Come come! 🙂
