Nyepi Day is one of the most important occasions on Bali’s cultural calendar. Also known as Silent Day, it is observed with 24 hours of inactivity as the entire island comes to a complete standstill. In accordance to the Hindu faith, Nyepi is Balinese New Year and for followers it is a time of solitude and personal reflection.
Nyepi is a day to make and keep the balance of nature. From the religious and philosophy point of view, Nyepi is meant to be a day of self-introspection to decide on values, e.g humanity, love, patience, kindness, that should be kept forever.
