Tumpek Landep is a celebration of all working tools for Hindu Balinese . Isn’t a big celebration . Not even day of holiday . We still working as usual but we all Balinese will spend their time for praying before or after working .
Perhaps you will have many question about what happening yesterday in Bali Island . Especially if you are not Balinese and have connection on FB with Balinese . Yes almost all Balinese will post something interesting post about what happening yesterday .
Almost all Balinese posted something about yesterday celebration . We are , Indonesian peoples are the biggest social media user thought .
I come across my Facebook wall and every person post such . The pictures of decorated cars , motorcycles and all working tools . They use a simple decoration by young coconut leaves in beautiful shape , some also with colorful clots . On the top of this they putting an offering of flowers with some cakes and fruits .
Yes yesterday Saturday , 2nd September is one of our precious day for Balinese Hindu . A day of Hindu celebration that we call Tumpek Landep .
Every 210 days based on pawokon ( Balinese week callender ) , we celebrate Tumpek Landep day . This pawokon calendar is originally from Java Island . One pawukon is one week , same calculation as one week in international calendar . But the different is one Pawokon cycle is 210 days which is mean there are 30 weeks . Confusing ? I am as Balinese also confuse , we have so many different calculation for Bali calendar .
