Full moon offerings in Bali, Indonesia

Referred to as “Purnama” in Bali, the full moon cycle is celebrated with elaborate ritual offerings. A full moon occurs approximately every 29 days and the Balinese celebrate this happening at family and/or community temples by offering large amounts of fruits and other food to the Gods, usually carried by women in traditional dresses. Visit a local Balinese home and partake in the preparations for the offerings, held at their family temple. While your host explains the ritual in more detail to you, the preparations continue and you will take part. Watch the offerings take place and enjoy a home hosted meal afterwards with your host.
