@: Bad Spirits! No room for You in our Land.
"Once a year (but be warned: according to the Balinese calendar!) young people meets and - after a very joyous body-painting - they walk through dozens of villages - where all the people is expecting them.


They parade, singing, shouting, playing. Addressed to the whole Universe: "This is our land! Evil Spirits away from here!"

Through rice fields, forests and rivers. For hours and miles. They stop every once in a temple and pray." ...........

Michael Skorulski from Toronto, Canada

This is a "good tradition" a way to manifest, a way to assert yourself for youngs.
