More Nyepi Magic

Amazing Video Clip Created by Carl Valiquet of Ogoh-Ogoh and Trance Possession in Sanur, Bali on March 22, 2012

(4/1/2012) Reader and well-known blogger Carl Valiquet wrote last week to share his remarkable mixed-media presentation he and his wife recorded on the evening of March 22, 2011 when Bali was festooned with colorful ogoh-ogoh.


Carl’s final creation, embedded on balidiscovery.com, masterfully captures the pandemonium and spirituality that marks ogoh-ogoh parades in Bali. The presentation also beautifully captures the moments when the young village men carrying an ogoh-ogoh float become possessed and fall into trance, only to be revived through the anointment with holy water by Balinese priests.

Carl best summed up his Nyepi experience, saying: “That evening, as I walked back to my Sanur home, I reminded myself that I live in a very unique and enigmatic Island.”

Carl, thank you for sharing.
