Three days before the Balinese new year is celebrated a Melasti must be performed, according to ancient scripture. This procession, involving ALL members of the community, is performed to "follow the deity in the purpose to drift away impurities, miseries and poor mundane elements and take tirtha amertha, or holy water of life in the sea.” ~ in Bali
