Abstract

The purpose of this study was to describe Tirta Amerta Sari ritual. Tirta Amerta Sari ritual is held by the Sumberawan community as a form of gratitude as well as praying together with the local community (slametan). This form of gratitude is carried out on the basis of the abundance of water from water sources by bringing the produce to the area (outside) of the temple which ends with a meal together. Meanwhile, the slametan is carried out with the mythological tracing ritual of Tirta Amerta Sari which was fought over by the gods and giants. The ritual is divided into three parts, namely community service, istighosah and sending prayers, and is closed with a procession of Tirta Amerta Sari. As the findings sum, it is interesting to research it in the spirit of multiculturalism while preserving the tradition.
