Tumpak Landep - Get Dressed For The Occasion

It was an occasion where not only the people, but also the vehicles get dressed and ornated with janur - the young coco leaf - in the form of canang ( small offering), tamiang ( shield) and all sort in any colors and delicate crafting. That's when the Balinese people is having the Tumpak Landep ceremony to honor Sang Hyang Pasupati, the Lord of all metal implements. The blessing ceremony is given to heirlooms, weapons and other metal tools (including car) and prayer is held for magical power and proper function, ensuring a trouble-free period for the next seven months. Even offices and shops have this ceremony to bless their vehicles, tools and merchandise.
