Abstract

This study analyzes the quality of water before and after mantra treatment (Hindu Perspective). It uses clean water from the ground, which is called kelebutan. In general, kelebutan is used as a source of drinking water and for spiritual activities among the Keramas, Blabatuh, and Gianyar communities. The study aims to determine the differences in water content, minerals, nitrogen, fluorine, phosphorus, sulfur and chlorine, as well as its efficacy for the health of the human body. It uses a quantitative approach with Gravimetri, Semimikrokjeldahl, and Soxhlet methods. The results showed that the physical quality of water in the control and treatment fulfilled the health requirements. Based on chemical parameters, there were Pb heavy in high levels in both the control and treatment. Microbiological water quality shows that there is an increase in the number of coliforms and total bacteria causing post-treatment contamination. The presence of components such as antioxidants in the water is attributed to the addition of flowers and mantra. In the molecular form, water forms a hexagonal structure.
