The inhabitants of supernatural realm range from deified ancestors to evil spirit, from gods to demons have always to be taken into consideration on every activity of a Balinese, since Balinese believe they contribute a great deal to the success and failure of an activity.

On Collective Cremation

Collective cremation season is on in Bali, dozens of collective cremation take place in eastern area of Bali especially in the regency of Gianyar, Klungkung and Bangli, some collective cremations also stage in Tabanan. Collective cremation rituals are done for large numbers of people (of potentially varying statuses) at the same time. By sharing many offerings and other expenses together, the cost per person can be dramatically reduced. Holding individual ngaben ceremony is not cheap and would cost a family anywhere from tens of millions of rupiah to hundreds of millions of rupiah. On the other hand, taking part in a collective cremation (ngerit) ceremony will only cost a family somewhere between two and five million rupiah.
