The procession was started with Jempana convoy and offerings, which were put to the edge beach, which the people walked up to the water. The offerings were then put on to the prepared table. In front of Hinduism followers, Ida Begawan, which was accompanied by "wasi" and "sutri", led the praying by reading words, while the followers followed it silently.
