Dharmacanti is the celebration the day after the Nyepi where we present Balinese traditional dances and music’s.
Nyepi is the first day of the Saka calendar, a twelve-month lunar cycle that usually begins in March or April,
around the time of the vernal equinox.
In 2007, Nyepi falls on March 19.
The Saka calendar originated in South India in A.D. 78, and was brought to Indonesia around A.D. 465;
It is therefore offset by roughly 78 years from the Gregorian calendar
2007 marks the beginning of Saka year 1929.
During this time we observe quiet moment for 24 hours.
