Ritually, Balinese have a special ceremony to beg any prosperity for vegetations so they can always provide their crops for mankind. The ceremony is called Tumpek Wariga or Tumpek Pengatag will be held on Saturday September 28, 2013. Tumpek Wariga or devoted to Sanghyang Sangkara, Lord of all food – plants when blessing ceremony is given to them for good crops and products, held at every plantation and farm throughout the island. Tumpek Wariga is celebrated every 210 days or 6 months of the Balinese calendar. It’s a right time to beg the God to give His grace so the vegetation can provide a lot of crops. Tumpek Wariga is also called Tumpek Bubuh, because the offerings contain bubuh (porridge) such as bubuh sumsum (porridge made using refined flour). In committing the ceremony, the bubuh is smeared on the tree bark as a symbol of fertilizers (the proper food for vegetation).
The offering is dedicated to all plants that help human life, such as salak, coconuts, mangoes, durian, bananas, rambutan etc. Not just by presenting an offering, plants are also decorated with clothes and special decoration made from coconut leaf.
The Tumpak Wariga celebration is also a time for expressing human gratitude to plants. Plants are seen as human relatives, as they are also part of God’s family. It is people’s duty to protect plants; moreover Balinese believe that prosperity and comfort will come around whenever the vegetation is protected and conserved. So for that reasons, the Balinese have to make special offerings for plants.
