Tabuh Rah or blood sprinkle of cockfight using sacrificial animals is carried out in a series of religious ceremonies (yadnya). It also denotes a symbol to neutralize bhuta kala as mentioned in the articles of Hinduism chiefly on Lord Shiva. Not all religious ceremonies are accompanied with cockfight. Only the pecaruan ceremonies are appropriately accompanied with cockfight such as the caru manca kelud, caru rishi gana et cetera. The implementation can be carried out with the perang satha namely cockfight for three rounds. The figure three is selected because it is believed to have magical power and symbolize the beginning, middle and the end. Besides, the blood sprinkle can also be implemented by penyamblehan or slaughtering the animal’s neck with a kris dagger and then the blood is sprinkled.

Cockfight is usually held in the temple outermost courtyard because according to the belief of the Hindus, the location is regarded as the place of the bhuta kala. So, this location is considered appropriate to make the offerings for the beings so as not to disturb people. (BTN)
