The State News Agency Antara reports that Bali governor Made Mangku Pastika has written to four Cabinet Ministers in connection with the mandatory closure of Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport on Monday, March 31, 2014 to mark the Bali-Hindu Day of absolute Silence or “Hari Suci Nyepi Tahun Baru Saka 1936.”

The provincial spokesman for Bali, I Ketut Teneng, said on Tuesday, February 25, 2014, “These letters were sent long ago in the hope that they can be widely circulated to all related agencies, both on a national and international level.”

The governor’s Circular Letter Number 003.2/23168/DPIK dated December 30, 2013 was sent to the Minister of Transportation EE Mangindaan, Minister of Foreign Affairs Marty Natalegawa, Minister of the Interior Gamawan Fauzi and the Minister of Communications and Information Tifatul Sembiring.

The letter was also sent to the Director Generals of Sea, air and Land Communications; the Chairman of the Bali House of Representatives (DPRD-Bali) and all regents and mayors across Bali.

Copies of the letter were sent to 25-related government agencies including the Bali Airport Authority and the chief port officials of all Bali seaports.

Ketut Teneng said the letter was sent well in advance of “Nyepi” to allow the smooth closure of the Bali airport and all seaports on the day of absolute silence when all flights in and out of Bali are banned and the public are generally sequestered to homes and hotels.

All international and domestic flights to and from Bali will be cancelled from 6:00 am on Monday, March 31, 2014 until 6:00 am the following morning on April 1, 2014.

The day of silence or “Nyepi” in Bali is run in deference to Bali-Hindu beliefs that during the 24-hour period of meditation and self-reflection flames must not be lit (amati geni); activities must not be undertaken (amati karya); journeys must not be made (amati lelungan); and to refrain from indulging animal urges or undertake personal entertainments (amati lelanguan).
