Ogoh Ogoh untuk Hari Nyepi ini diambil dari wikipedia.

Ogoh-ogoh are statues built for the Ngrupuk parade, which takes place on the eve of Nyepi day in BaliIndonesia. Ogoh-ogoh normally have form of mythological beings, mostly demons. As with many creative endeavours based on Balinese Hinduism, the creation of Ogoh-ogoh represents spiritual aims inspired by Hindu philosophy.
The main purpose of the making of Ogoh-ogoh is the purification of the natural environment of any spiritual pollutants emitted from the activities of living beings (especially humans). The forms of Ogoh-ogoh represent the Bhuta-Kala (Bhuta: eternal energy, Kala: eternal time), according to Hindu teachings. The imperceptible potentials of nature cannot be thoroughly explored by anyone. Philosophically, civilized men are required to manage the natural resources without damaging the environment itself.
Aside from being the symbol of Bhuta-Kala, Ogoh-ogoh is considered a symbol of modes of nature that form the malicious characters of living beings. Ogoh-ogoh are usually made by the group of artists found in villages around Bali. After being paraded on a convoy around the town, finally it is burnt to ashes in a cemetery as a symbol of self-purification.

    3. nak share sikit info ni: saya juga ada tanyakan pada pak supir di bali, menurutnya dulu kita kan diperintah oleh kerajaan majapahit sebelum kedatangan Islam. Jadi, apabila Islam datang, ada orang emngatakan baahwa jika sesiapa yang tidak mahu mengikut ajaran Islam boleh pergi ke sebuah tempat yang dipanggil "ucupbali". Jadi, ke sanalah mereka dan mengamalkan kepercayaan dan adat tradisi. Kekal sehingga kini.
