Hundreds of devotional pilgrims, namely sutri (female) and juru sirat (male), performed siyat sampian (sampian war) tradition on Wednesday (Mar. 15) in the area of Penataran Sasih Temple, Pejeng. This activity was held for three days after the peak of padudusan ritual at the local temple when the deities of Samuan Tiga Temple and ratu manca-manca would like to leave their sanctum.

The siyat sampian ritual has been prepared from the morning, commenced with nampyog where the sutri and juru sirat danced around the area of Penataran Sasih. Subsequently, it was followed by mabete-betean and wave dance. The entire procession was conducted by surrounding the area of Penataran Sasih for three times.

After the procession, the sutri and juru sirat took a short break. Furthermore, they said prayers in front of the pengaruman and the shrine of Ratu Sanghyang. After saying prayers and being sprinkled with holy water, some participants began to shout loudly. Immediately, they took sampian having been previously provided in the courtyard of the temple. While this tradition took place, they looked to hit each other by using the sampian.

“No one feels sore while undertaking this tradition. Instead, I personally feel proud and happy after going through this tradition. Moreover, the whole series of piodalan or temple anniversary has been running smoothly,” said Oyis, one of the juru sirat participating in the tradition of siyat sampian.

Committee of the Padudusan Ritual of the Penataran Sasih, Dewa Nyoman Ngakan Suardita, asserted that siat sampian tradition is a regular agenda held every piodalan at the Penataran Sasih. “This tradition must always be carried out every piodalan padudusan at Penataran Sasih every year,” he said.
