Melaspas is one of Bali traditional ceremonial where the purpose is to clean negative elements from new site of building or land that knows has great spirit of goodness soul in a building. In Bali language its called “medaging or pedagingan”; the purely soul of good spirit.
There are great philosophies inside a traditional Melaspas ceremonial. The word ‘Melaspas’ came from word “mala”, means bad or negative elements and ”pas” means cleanse or to purefy. Melaspas are specially done to a new building like : house, Merajan (temple / shrine). Besides cleansing, Melaspas also has a purpose to give protection from the negative elements to the owner of the building.
Melaspas is lead by the Hindu Highest Priest “Pedanda” or by Pemangku, in this case, my husband 2nd studio is blessed by the village Pemangku.
