The Old Bali Blog « Cosmic counter-balance? Chinese Year of the Horse starts with a bang

The Year of the Horse – 2014 – starts with a bang in Indonesia.

Jakarta is deluged by floods, Riau haze engulfs Singapore, and Mount Kelud in East Java explodes ferociously sending 200,000 people running for their lives – while Bali sees heavy landslides, floods and coastal erosion due to more extreme weather.

The answer?

Bali's Grand Council of Customary Villages holds Pemelehpeh Jagat - a special ritual designed to restore the island's cosmic balance.

Keep your fingers crossed it works.
