Pitra Yadnya

Pitra yadnya (sering disebut Pitara Yajna) adalah upacara spiritual atau ritual Agama Hindu di Bali dalam hal kematian yaitu upacara - upacara keagamaan dalam hal hubungan manusia dengan roh atau atma dan merupakan bagian dari Panca Yadnya. Ngaben adalah salah satu tahapan dari upacara pitra yadnya ini dan biasanya diiringi oleh tabuh atau gamelan (Musik) "Beleganjur".

Disinilah terlihat nyata kehidupan umat beragama hindu, kesepakatan keluarga, sifat gotong royong terjalin erat sehingga rangkaian upacara keluarga yang ditinggalkan menjadi amat ringan, tetapi jangan lupa sifat ketulusan gotong – royong ini harus dipunyai. Semua orang seisi banjar itu saling membutuhkan sifat ini perlu diperkokoh dan dihidupkan terus menerus.


English Language :
Ngaben or the Cremation "Pitra Yadnya" Ceremony is the ritual performed to send the dead through the transition to his next life. The village Kul Kul, hanging in the tower of the village temple, will sound a certain beat to announce the departure of the deceased. The body of the deceased will be placed at Bale Delod, as if he were sleeping, and the family will continue to treat him as if he were still alive yet sleeping. No tears are shed, for he is only gone temporarily and he will reincarnate into the family.

The Priest consults the Dewasa to determine the proper day for the ceremony. On the day of the ceremony, the body of the deceased is placed inside a coffin which is then placed inside a sarcophagus in the form of a buffalo (called Lembu) or a temple structure called Wadah made of paper and light wood. The Wadah will be carried to the village cremation site in a procession.

The climax of Ngaben is the burning of the Wadah, using fire originating from a holy source. The deceased is sent to his afterlife, to be reincarnated in the future.
