This book, which explains how a fantastic myth is linked to the Ba linese notion of time, and through that, to the whole complex of Balinese rites and festivals, demonstrates that there is no end to discovery of this world-famous island-and beyond. Bali is unique, yet Bali is part of Indonesia. The story and concepts at the heart of the Balinese calendar are local versions of a narrative found across the archipelago, especially in Bali's sister island of Java. Although the calendar system is key to a true understanding of Balinese culture, little has been written about it, and no one until now has given due attention to the relation between the myth of Watugunung and the island's ritual system. Even less is known of the peculiarities of the calendar and micro-culture of the village of Tenganan Pegeringsingan. By filling those gaps, this book significantly enhances our knowledge.
