On 9th of April 2009, a great ceremony will be held in Besakih temple, the mother temple of Bali. This ceremony is classified as Bhuta Yadnya (a ceremony to purify the universe and the negative force of nature) and deemed as an important ceremony by Balinese. This great ceremony is Panca Walikrama ceremony, a ceremony that is held once every ten years or after great disasters happened consecutively, great plague, a great riot and chaos.

This grand ceremony can also be held in other great temples in Bali, Java and Lombok, which are classified as Kahyangan Jagat or Dang Kahyangan, but only when this ceremony is held in Besakih temple it can be classified as Karya Jagat (the work of the world, a ceremony that is held by the king of Bali and the draws pilgrims from all over Bali).

Unfortunately, the date of this ceremony coincide with Indonesian general election and its preparation overlap with many important Balinese holidays such as Galungan, and Kuningan and also with open campaign period of the general election. We hope that the ceremony can be held successfully despite of many agendas concur with the preparation and the D day.
