(7/19/2013)

The impact of the unthinking act of two Estonian tourists to Bali, Urmas Silman (43) and his wife Katrin Silman (32), caught In flagrante delicto performing public sexual acts in Pura Mengening, a Balinese temple located in the traditional village of Sarased at Tampaksiring, Gianyar, last March, continues to be felt.

In an attempt to restore the sanctity and purity of the temple viiolated by the two Estonians, an elaborate Tawur Agung Ceremony was conducted by village members on Wednesday, July 17, 2013.

As reported by The Bali Post, the Tawur Agung ritual was the culmination of a chain of sacred and costly rites, including pacaruan tingkat nista and rsi gana ceremonies. As explained by a community chief, Wayan Candra, the Tawur Agung was performed to restore the purity of Pura Mengening.

Requiring the participation of numerous priests performing prayers over a month-long period, the final rites will only be completed on August 15, 2013.

The time-consuming and costly Tawur Agung process has been borne by local villagers who have received an indication that some amount of reimbursement may eventually be provided by the Regency of Gianyar.

In all, 283 households have sacrificed time, materials and money to permit the Tawur Agung to be conducted.

According to The Bali Post, the lasting effect of the outrageous behavior of the two Estonian tourists has been formally advised to the Foreign Ministry of that country through the Consulate in Bali.

The Estonians were not charged with a crime in connection with their defilement of a Balinese temple, but were required to make a nominal contribution towards the cost of the required ceremonies then advised to leave the island.
