"In silence, we dive deep into our hearts, contemplating the gift of life from the Creator. So anger, resentment, and envy will disperse. And we rise up full of enthusiasm and optimism," said Jokowi.

The word of Nyepi comes from the word 'silence'. Therefore, the celebration was passed in a quiet situation with a number of Nyepi rules. 

The province of Bali, as a predominantly Hindu region, issued a special policy during this year's Nyepi celebration.

The Bali Provincial Government has instructed to turn off IPTV and cellular data in the Bali region during the Nyepi period. IPTV and cellular data will be disabled for 24 hours. 

Not only that, the Bali Regional Indonesian Broadcasting Commission together with the Provincial Government agreed to call on TV and radio not to broadcast on Nyepi. (*)
