Bali Safari & Marine Park Seeks God’s Blessing on ‘Tumpek Kandang’ – a Day Dedicated to Animals


(8/17/2014)

Important in the calendar cycle of Balinese festivals is Tumpek Kandang Day – dedicated to seeking God’s blessing on the animal kingdom comprised of both the domesticated animals that share close proximity to man and the animals inhabiting the wild kingdom.

Tumpek Kandang fell on Saturday, August 9, 2014, and was celebrated with special enthusiasm at the Bali Safari and Marine Park that is home to 600 animals.

Gathered at the Bali Theatre inside the park were a broad cross-section of the Safari Park’s residents, including elephants, bearcats, orangutans, snakes and colorful macaws.

Two high-caste Bali-Hindu priests – Ida Pedanda Gde Ketut Oka Jelantik Dwipayana and Ida Pedanda Istri Ketut Oka - presided over prayers and rituals  to seek God’s blessing on all the park animals, ensuring good health and longevity.

William Santoso, general manager of Bali Safari & Marine Park explained that it is essential to appreciate the animal kingdom as fellow inhabitants of the planet created by God.

“Human life in enhanced by animals and at the park we are fortunate to have a fine collection of exotic creatures for our visitors to experience. Tumpek Kandang has religious significance but also highlights that the Balinese community is aware of animal welfare just as we are at Bali Safari and Marine Park,” said Santoso.
