High priestess ritual

The High Priestess Ritual

For decades in Bali, High Priests have always been men, elderly men, traditionally born in the Highest Brahman caste. Our High Priestess was born in the lowest caste and at 21 years old she became the youngest IDA PEDANDA in Bali. She was ordained at such a young age, it broke all the traditional rules of age, gender and caste…

The Ida Pedanda dresses all in white, hair held into a bun, a long white sash wrapped around the waist. For such purification ritual – called Melukat – all the necessary traditional regalia are prepared: Bells, bowls, incense, flowers, offerings, holly water, headband and a bracelet.

Where does this Spirit Journey  take place?

The Ritual is performed at the High Priestess’s compound.

It is done during the auspicious days of the Balinese Calendar. 

Please enquire for dates in advance.
