PurlimaSugian Jawa is falling down on 30th March 2017, It is the second of three Sugian ceremonies in Bali that are performed to cleanse the Bhuana Agung (the environment of the individual human being, or macro-cosmos) and the Bhuana Alit (the micro-cosmos or the inner world of the individual human being) of negativity, and at the same time to create awareness of one’s sacred inner power.

The word Jawa here is equal to the word jaba (= ‘outside’) and refers to the Bhuana Agung or macro-cosmos, which is the environment of the individual human being (the counterpart of the inner world of the individual human being, the micro-cosmos or bhuana alit). The ceremonies that are conducted during Sugian Jawa are locally known as pemretistan ring Bhatara kabeh and are intended to cleanse the Bhuana Agung of negativity. According lontar Sudarigama, Sugian Jawa is the auspicious day to worship all the positive powers of the (macro-) cosmos – the gods and pitara – with extra attention.
