Balinese Hindus Celebrate Kuningan Day in Indonesia

Monday,May 31,2010
BALI, INDONESIA : Balinese Hindus will celebrate a religious day known as Kuningan on Saturday May 22, 2010. This ceremonial occasion falls exactly 10 days after the Galungan rituals and is a time to commemorate ancestral spirits as they return to heaven after dwelling on earth for an extended period.

Worshipers express their gratitude through prayer and offerings to the Gods for the ultimate gift of life. At Kuningan the arched bamboo poles referred to as as penjor, which are erected in front of each Balinese home compound during the religious festivities, are redecorated. White cloth is replaced with yellow cloth at the base of the penjor’s temporary shrine as an indication of prosperity.
