Ngaben – The Famous Cremation Ritual of Bali

April 9, 2010 Leave a comment

Of all the great ceremonies of Hindus in Bali, the Ngaben or the corpse burning ceremony is one of the most important. This ceremony is usually accompanied by offerings and holy songs. Common belief of the Hindus is that the Ngaben or burning of the corpses will take the departed person to their dwelling place in paradise or send the departed to their next life. The Ngaben is supposedly a way of detaching the soul from all worldly attachments; moreover, it is considered a means of respecting the dead. This belief in the journey to heaven is so firm that the relatives of the deceased try to avoid crying in the graveyard, as they think that it may cause hindrance in the journey to the next world.

The Ceremony

Before conducting the ceremony, the relatives of the deceased would check with a temple priest for the best day for the dewasa. The ceremony starts with the construction of a stage for bathing (nyiramin) the dead body. Then a sarcophagus in buffalo shape (lembu) is designed for holding the corpse while burning. This sarcophagus will be taken on a procession which culminates at the village grave yard.

The relatives of the dead person will pay homage and offer prayers before the final ceremony, so that the deceased will get into heaven. Then, the dead body will be taken to the graveyard in a wadah, with traditional Balinese music and holy mantra (kidung suci). An extensive piece of white cloth (kasa) will be placed before the wadah, leading the ways for the deceased person to reach heaven. The wadah is rotated clockwise for three times whenever a crossroad is passed through – this is to make sure that the soul never returns to its worldly residence.

After reaching the burial ground, the dead body is put into the lembu. A priest chants a mantra and the people burn the lembu. The resulting ash is thrown into the sea or any nearby river. Once the ceremony is over, the family of the deceased would return to their home with the belief that soul of the dead will reincarnate back into their family sometime in the future.

That was some info on the Balinese cremation ceremony – something worth seeing during your next tour to Bali. The Ngaben is just one of the many Hindu ceremonies in Bali that you should surely have a glimpse on.

Online marketing people wants to improve their blog rank with respect to search engine results.However, improving blog ranking is not the normal school kid stuff anymore. It’s now much more than just writing some mundane blog entries. It is actually a serious business, particularly if you are aiming at making money with blogging. Blog marketing is many times more powerful compared to the ordinary website marketing, and it makes sense to try and improve your blog ranking. Following are some simple steps to improve your blog rank.

Tag your Posts

This is the best time to start if you haven’t already tagged your blog posts. People can get to your blog and other interrelated media faster when the information is tagged. Even if you are writing the most resourceful blog post in your field, not a soul is going to read it unless they can get to it. So it is better to take care and tag all the posts.

Use RSS

Syndicating with RSS improves publicity for your blog. So put the RSS buttons in a prominent place when you are modifying your blog’s template. You can register with a good RSS tracker to track the number of readers and display that on your blog; this will persuade others to signup. Although you can simply use the feed option available in your blog, it is much better to use a special feed that can separate keyword clusters for the content you often post.

Participate

Adding comments on other blogs is a great way to send out your links to the World Wide Web. Bloggers will give you the trackbacks if the comments are useful and relevant. Don’t simply spam all the blogs on blogosphere with useless comments; your comment may get deleted. When people read a useful comment, there is a good chance that they will click through to your blog and even subscribe to your RSS feed.

Bookmark

Bookmarking is an easy way to improve blog ranking and get traffic. Through bookmarking, users can save and classify a personal compilation of bookmarks and also share it with others. Users can pick bookmarks already saved by others and include that in their own compilation; they can also subscribe to the lists of others. If you can’t afford to get your website bookmarked in all key bookmarking engines, at least you can have it bookmarked in a few – this will augment blog traffic in a big way.

Meet People

Social networks are there in almost every part of the internet. Joining such networks is another effective way of meeting compatible people and getting valuable links.

Follow these simple tips and your blog will soon reach top rankings on search engines.
